    This is close to what I was thinking... People are faking to be what is supposed of them. I don't see the situation much different from when it was custom to fake to be a nice and pure girl. The tragedy is that now it would be quite ok to be yourself. It doesn't have far-reaching consequences like it may have been back in the old days. People are not taking this chance, I don't know why...

    I'm not sure if girls who behave/talk like this are doing it more for each other, because they think it's fun or whatever, or if they think it's a good way to get attention from guys.
    I'm sure there are a gazillion male and female barbarians out there. Unfortunately for the rest of us, they tend to breed in mass.

    I think it's for women. Why, I don't know. They act different and quieter with me at least.

    They are part of the same phenomenon... Looking around you to conform to what you think others will like. But, isn't the main issue here really: Why don't we like them? Because they are popular, or at least try to appear in a way that makes them popular. But who are we? If we are as real as we can, doesn't it make it more possible for us to be noticed by people who we would like to notice us?

    Pretty much. Those two + other words (like "tranny" in the transcommunity) can be "reclaimed" by the demographic they originally were used against as a slur, but you can't use them if you were not part of the demographic without them coming across as yet another act of oppression.

    I just see it as generic slang at this point, although when it's overused it becomes annoying. I'll say it to close friends when we are joking around with each other, but it can get old fast. The guy who I rent a room from tends to use it more than my name, because he thinks he's being trendy, and I'll have to have a talk with him soon if it continues; I'm flexy and appreciate humor, but it gets old.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    My ex called me "bitch" jokingly once and I was like "THAT'S NOT FUNNY." It was probably the nail in the coffin of him thinking I was humourless. He was 20 and I was 24 at the time. Maybe it was another slightly-younger/different perceptions thing.

    I still think it's a problem, though I know there's always the "reclaiming" argument.
