Shit! What do I do?
Firstly: ask, politely, why it was offensive
Secondly: listen to the answer, take time to think about it, think about whether my need to use a term that upsets a large swathe of people (but possibly not everyone) is greater than someone else’s need to feel happy and safe
Thirdly: apologise for upsetting them
Lastly: strive to a avoid using this term again
- call on your friends to back you up against all criticism
- call the offended parties ‘hysterical’ or ‘trolls’
- engage in a rolling argument where you point out you have black/gay/trans/adult baby friends who aren’t offended and then throw a lot of shade
Now then: was that so hard?

thewrongwayxx asked: Hi! :) what does your arm/wrist area say?
It says ‘like a velvet glove cast in iron’ which is this book (and also a quote from Faster Pussycat Kill, Kill). It does actually start at my wrist on the inside, and swirl round to a few inches down my arm.
