I’d explain why I’m not into it and her response would indicate whether I could keep dating her.

If they're neurodivergent they can say it. If not then no I wouldn't be ok with that


PloidsMillionaire

Can you explain this a little bit?


alyssaoftheeast

Which part? A neurodivergent person has the right to reclaim a slur used against them, but if you're neurotypical it's inappropriate to use


PloidsMillionaire

I guess with everything, context is key. Someone with a severe learning disability empowering themselves by flipping the usage makes sense to me. Someone with adhd jokingly calling their friend that because they have the “r word card” by being neurodivergent would feel crazy, but I doubt that’s what you’re suggesting


alyssaoftheeast

Exactly! :)

What R word is taboo to say? I’m at a loss.

The word that planes scream at you when you need to reduce your throttle

I wouldn't have a problem with it at all. Only word that's a dealbreaker to me is the N-word, because she's either *horribly* racist (if she's using it like a Republican) or she's too ghetto for me (if she's using it in the way black people use it.)

>if she's using it like a Republican >or she's too ghetto for me The cognitive dissonance is strong with this one.


alyssaoftheeast

Says this: >she's either horribly racist Then goes on to say something incredibly racist: >she's too ghetto for me (if she's using it in the way black people use it.)


D-Rez

Why only that word, and not the other? Also, would other racist words be ok to you?


PEEWUN

You've managed to contradict yourself in that last sentence, buddy.


Socolimes

I don’t see why not

I don't know what the R word is. I'm not woke enough. I know what the N word is. I'm pretty sure I know what the C word is (very commonly used in Australia, if I'm not mistaken). But, I'm at a bit of a loss when it comes to the rest of these coded "canceled" words.

Leaving aside that I'm already married, no. Someone who feels it needful to routinely engage in casual ableism is someone I wouldn't want to spend a lot of time with.


PloidsMillionaire

not sure why the downvotes. It’s a reasonable opinion even if others disagree


grombleduke

I think calling out that word as offensive upsets some folk.


HollynBerry

Define "regular part of their vocabulary"


PEEWUN

They use the word without thinking about it.


HollynBerry

The context in which you use it is important, and the gravity of said use should be taken into account with EVERY word. However, I'd be ok with occasional use of it in the right contexts.


-domi-

Depends on the use, but i likely wouldn't care much. I'm much more triggered by other words.


BadMotherFolklore

"irregardless"?


PloidsMillionaire

I think we should see other people.
