So a friend told me that “fren” is now used by the racists sooo 🤦🏻♀️
@moiety yeah there was a lot of yelling about that ( / frenworld, etc ) a couple weeks ago.
iunno. like 2 b fair that has impacted my speech habits detrimentally 'cause i'm a fucking pushover but iirc the general response around the parts was along the lines of "fuck 'em they can take talking cute when they pry it from our cold dead hands"
in part 'cause What The Fuck and in part 'cause when that fight isn't over if we capitulate were on the road to having nothing left 🤷♀️
@moiety but yeah, no, it's a whole thing tho 😔
@gdkar fortunately the racists have zero creativity and we have the most creative people ever. Sooo I think we’ll come up with better things 💕😊🌟.
@moiety yeah.... i always feel conflicted about it?
'cause like.... there's definitely a range of positions on "what do you fight to keep, or reclaim, or whatever, vs. what do you just let slip and move on"
and i'm almost always on the side of "well, we lost another nice thing today. but what can we do?" 'cause i'm meek as hell.
but i always feel like,... iunno,.... maybe that's wrong?
( but also i'm still meek as hell so what can ya do. 🤷♀️ )
@gdkar I compare it too how POC keep having their shit stolen by white folk and all keep on coming up with better more creative shit.
Yeah it sucks that things are stolen from us and I wouldn’t stop anyone from reclaiming those things. For me, i think i have bigger worries than to fight hateful people over a cute word.
I’ll stop calling my friend “ven” or something. I dunno.
@moiety yep. like. i've stopped sayin' "fren" mostly, as of a couple weeks ago. 'cause even if i'm sad about it, like, shrug, that's life.
iunno. a similar thing almost happened with 🍞 like a year and a half ago ( it failed 'cause the ancoms already kinda owned that ) and stuff and just...
iunno. i just always feel like i should be fighting harder?
but. yeah. have bigger things to be worrying about. more important fights to fight. as long as we're still here tomorrow it's... ok 🔥💪😣
