THIS IS A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
It’s not a choice and millennials use it wrong nearly every day.
So lets make this clear, I’m not attacking you guys for your social justice blogging and campaigning, I am just so tired of seeing you all sugar coat everything you say and do because you live in ignorance, about the word ignorant.
When someone says something Homophobic, Transphobic, Xenophobic, Racist, Sexist, or Ableist.
THEY ARE NOT IGNORANT!!!!!!!!!
Calling them ignorant is saying that these people are unaware of what they are doing. No angry toothless women who refuses to issue marriage licenses ever thought to herself “Golly gee gosh I had no idea that the N word was offensive to people of color.” after you said HEY THE N WORD IS A RACIAL SLUR.
No No my friend … that person knows that what they are saying is hateful.
So please for the sake of correct use of words and not cutting slack to hateful people, instead of saying ignorant when describing Donald Trump (or any other person who seems to get joy out of spewing toxic garbage onto social media), please feel free to use this word
