Writers Marcie Bianco and Meredith Bennett-Smith, along with Rainbow Noise ENT’s Cee Smith, react to a list of commonly-used ‘slurs.’

Language is a powerful tool that we all use to our advantage, especially within the LGBT community. Yet when it comes to hateful words, at what point do we begin to reclaim and embrace these terms that have historically been used against us? Or should we use them as tools to better educate an uninformed public? OutQ’s Xorje Olivares and guests debate anti-gay slurs and our sensibilities around them in this new edition of ‘Let’s Get Busy Talking.’

Some men, certain men, believe the world is truly their oyster; that they can move through the world with a complete lack of awareness of their being in the world, and a belief that they can do anything they want to, without propriety or respect for other individuals, especially women.

From small-scale acts of aggression, like spreading their legs wide while seated on a subway, to large-scale acts like sexual assault, some men embody a daily ethic motivated by consummate consumption. They own all spaces and all the things in those spaces, including women’s bodies. This means that their acts of aggression, felt as perpetual violence by others, is the “norm.” This means too that when these men encounter resistance to these actions, they retaliate with an even greater level of violence.
