PICK UP A DICTIONARY AND FIND THE SYNONYM FOR THE WORD.....


                                     
Lol I had to write this blogpost really fast, before I forgot what was on my mind. But first of all, blogsville peeps all of you must congratulate me today lol. This blogpost is the first non-religion, non-God post of the new year. WOOHOO...Now back to business lol...Oya first of all let me correct yall about something that I learnt just the other day. It is almightily wrong to ask gay people whether they are 'gay'. A lot of you have probably seen a guy or a girl who you thought was gay and you asked them 'Are you gay'? Why would you ask anybody that kind of question? Like being gay is a disease or something. it's almost like asking somebody 'Are you HIV positive?' or 'Are you Bi-polar'? It would be very awkward if somebody walked up to you and asked you 'Are you straight'? Nobody does that, so stop asking people 'Are you gay' because it's stupid and dumb. Moreover, because I know some of you will want to argue stupidly lol, all gay people are not promiscuous, neither do they think about everything in sexual terms. So please think about that very well.

Now to the topic I wanted to address, words such as nigger, queer, dyke, spick, honky, etc are words used for certain communities of people in society. Nigger refers to black people, queer/dyke refers to gay people, i've forgotten what refers to Mexicans/Asians but anywayz sha you all get my point. I have always deemed it very hypocritical when black people get offended that other races use the word 'nigger' when we still use it within our own community. It doesn't make sense, how are you going to tell white/latinos/asians etc not to use the word 'nigger' but then turn around and use it within our own community? If we don't want the word to be used, we ourselves should not use it as well. And I've heard people say shit like it's only black people that can use the word, we are taking back the 'word' from the white man who gave it to us and we are making a new identity from it. Or people in the LGBT(Lesbian,Gay, Bisexual, Transexual) community say that they are against people using the word 'queer' to refer to them but within their own gay community most of them use the word 'queer' to refer to themselves. And all this while am getting frustrated lol, because I don't understand why a certain community of people will say 'Do not use this word to refer to us' but then turn around and use the same word to refer to themselves. What kind of Holy fuckerey is that? My point is this, words like queer/nigger/ etc where given to both the gay community and black community by their oppressors who happened to be 'straight white men/women'. Now why would daft people now turn around and use the same word given to them by their oppressors and now take pride in it? Technically, what they are implying is that they are to daft/stupid/unintellectual to come up with a 'new' word to refer to themselves. Take for example a word like 'queer' given to the LGBT community by their oppressors, why would the LGBT now turn around and use that word among themselves? I mean if it is really that hard for these people to come up with a new word for themselves why not open the Merriam-Webster/Oxford dictionary and then flip over to the word 'queer' and then look for the synonym of the word 'queer' and they would come up with beautiful words like - remarkable, odd, surprising, curious, perplexing etc. My point is this, are blacks/gays that 'stupid' that we have to keep on using the same words given to us by our caucasian oppressors to refer to ourselves?  Are we really unable to think of an appropraite word with which we can identify with? As in I thought about this thing for so long, my brain begin they pain me. Seriously though, guys do you see my point? PICK UP A DICTIONARY AND FIND THE SYNONYM FOR THE WORD....

Anywayz to another more important matter, what is up with all these rich people who have a false sense of humility/modesty? If you are rich you are rich, there are no two ways about it. How can your parents be making 1 million or 500k dollars a year and you have the audacity nay the effontery to say that you are 'middle class'? What dirty middle class. Please if you are rich you are rich, you should never be ashamed of it. Afterall, everybody's goal is to try to get rich innit? So why would you then get embarrased after chasing something that you have finally accomplished? Makes no damn sense. Lol...

I was going to leave this blogpost @ this and not write anything about God, but seriously I could not pass up talking about this Pat Robertson issue. That fool gives a bad name to good christian people all over the world. Incase somepeople do not know what he said, he said that 'Haiti has been cursed since the old days after they signed a pact with the devil to set them free from their French Colonial masters"... And to that I say that maybe they would not have needed to make a pact with the devil if God had bothered to answer their prayers/cries in the first frigging place.  Now I know  to go to the devil if I want somethng badly he responds faster abi?? But to honestly suggest that the Haitian nation is cursed simply because they made a pact with the devil and imply that God was repaying them back through the earthquake is the height of stupidity. And what pains me most is that there are really people out there who listen to that fool.

The point u brought up here are things that's been around for awhile. I guess my respond to the derogatory word is that they try to take the words and make it there own when in all retrospect they are just making it worst fpr themselve. I like ur blog keep it up.

Azazel said...

Thanks Anon. Mucho appreciated

LucidLilith said...

Mexicans - Wetbacks
Asians - Chinks

just tot I should tell you.

Also, some people that are 'rich' don't really see themselves as 'rich.' Maybe Kim Kardashian want to be like Paris Hilton. Maybe Paris aspires to have what Oprah has...

LucidLilith said...

Well Chinks is mostly used for Chinese but many people can't tell the difference btw Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Vietnamese, Cambodia and Philipino. Go figure.

Myne Whitman said...

Finding a synonym will not be the same you know that, that particular word has a meaning to that group. I don not agree with it oo but I see why they do. Sometimes I yab myself and but if I no know you, don't you just dare! LOL. So I understand.

As for PB, the man is going senile and what an insensitive time to come up with that curse thing. I just found out that theory has been circulating for a while. And no it's not God punishing them, it's just the devil giving them jara. Na wa for these american Christian people sha.

Azazel said...

Lol @ lily..
I see u got your derogatory slurs downpacked..
I see u o..
But Myne seriously? Why are they using a word that was used against them?? It goes against all reasonable logic..
I mean ok, it's a free country right? if they want to use the word FINE.. but don't start vexing when other ppl start using the same word..

JuaNita said...

lol Holy Fuckery! yeah, my white friends ask the same question . What can I say oh? I think its plain ignorance on ehem their *cough* part.
That Pat Robertson dude sha; was he there when they were signing that so so pact? He just wants some attention..freaking idiot.

miss b said...

My best friend is from barbados, and before we heard of this guy, she told me about the fact that alot of christains from the carebean believe that Haiti is a cursed nation because they have alot of spiritual and traditional beliefs.
Haiti has a very complex history, and is not predominantly christain plus is the only underdeveloped. country in the carebean. It is very easy for people to add one plus one and come up with eleven! My heart goes out to them.

Azazel said...

Juanita and it's not the first time that idiot has opened his mouth to say something stupid. Miss B.... So are u saying that there might be some truth to what pat was sayin? most of the nations in that carribean area are not that developed.

Th Pat robinson issue is quite Stupid. many haitians dont practice this. This is just like any other stereotype, so what if a significant population does practice Vodoo? it takes place in all the carribean nations. It takes place in Brazil, Cuba, Barbadoes, etc. I wonder why they weren't hit according to him? The bizzare thing about this is that he kinda contradict himself, the vodoo that normally takes place in Haiti is found in the rural area not in the modern city/capital like port au prince, so the people that actually practice Vodoo were not harmed by the earthquake since the earthquake mainly hit Port au Prince. It was the poor christians that died in this earthquake. I guess it made perfect sense to him for God to punish thousands of people because of something their ancestors did hundreds of years ago that they knew nothing about. If Vodoo equate pact with the devil, then I guess my ancestor and your ancestor made a pact with the devil.

leggy said...

white:crackers
the haiti thing is just weird..this is even the first time im hearing this...so how did they sign the pact owu?

Azazel said...

@ anonymous U hit it perfectly on the head. So it was actually the christians in the cities who died. Not to talk of the fact that the catholic arch bishop also died in the process. @ leggy lol I have never made a pact with the devil so I would not know how to go about contacting him.

Neo said...

abt social communities wanting to monopolise derogatory words i'm with Myne on this one, its like my mum upsets me and i'm ranting to a friend ur so not allowed to pitch in and lay it into Mama, i'll so smack ur head.

as for the rich ish, people always want more money so maybe in their mind they aint "there" yet.

PS: U shd be cited for most frequent use of LOL and LMAO! Maybe we shd patent them for u :)

Azazel said...

Neo darling am sorry to say ur analogy is so off base. Those are two different things . Take for example the word nigger. It was given to blAcks by their white slave masters. Why then wud blacks still want to use that word among ourselves? Are we that dense that we cannot come up with A new word which has a positive sognificance ?

Enoch said...

I'm a radical on this one.

I think we place too much value on words but then again, who am I to tell anyone when to be or not to be offended?

Azazel said...

Enoch true we may place tomuch emphasis on words. But they do honestly hurt.
