You know guys, Jennifer Lawrence has said a lot of offensive things (like “I dress really d***y.”) and other stuff, but this photo makes me like her more.
I know it doesn’t correct her mistakes, but it still is nice to see.
Why does it really matter if she said that? She’s not calling other dykes or dissing out a group. Hell, she’s not using the word in an insulting way. Sorry but you guys are over sensitive.
Okay, I’m go to reblog this (again) because I really am ethically opposed to this statement. First of all, let’s start with some facts.
#1: Jennifer Lawrence is not a lesbian.
#2: A d**e is an INCREDIBLY offensive term used to degrade lesbians.
#3: ONLY, and I repeat ONLY, are lesbians allowed to use this term in anyway.
So, what I’m trying to say, is that Jennifer Lawrence had NO right to use that term, and by her using it, it is being used as a slur. (I mean, because she was a tomboy, that means it’s okay to compare herself to a stereotype of all lesbians that has been used to oppress them for many, MANY years.) By saying that this is not offensive, she should be able to say “Oh, I was a tomboy, so I used to dress a lot like a n****r.” or “Oh, I was a tomboy, so I used to dress a lot like a k**e.”
THIS WOULD NOT BE ACCEPTED, AND HER COMPARING HERSELF TO A “D**E” SHOULD NOT BE ACCEPTED EITHER!!
Sorry for going crazy on you, but your comment is incredibly offensive.
