should we reclaim the word 'faggot'? [View all]

i'm really not interested in calling my self queer -- it's really not a word i positively identify with -- doesn't do anything for my self image.

same with faggot . just not interested -- and in the right circumstances -- both words are threatening to my well being.

'gay' is the word my predecessors carved out -- i'm proud of that word and the word gives me a positive feel to my self image.
