Dear White People:/Calling All White People:/Calling Out All White People

Co-opting a culture is when you presume to speak about, or to, a culture you were not born into.

Modern Englishes: Greeks are triggery and grammar is racist

When your speech, and the medium, or form of expression it is built into, is copyrighted – you are not Exposing a culture to the masses, you are dipping into a tradition that has yet to be told by the people who lived it and they are the only ones who have the business, personal and professional to express those values and those cultures.

Hey, she’s been on that Throne like forever – no wonder nobility seemed immortal to peasants, who often were born and died in their reigns, why civilizations revolved around the ruler – imperial being the literal measure of one king to understand his kingdom. That America continues to use it when the rest of the world is metric.

Anyway, I enjoy using archaic and Victorian language, it made my fiction writing sound older than I was, back when I wrote poetry and short stories. My three favorite words are all Victorian: Nethermouth, Guttersnipe and Ragamuffin.

Furthermore – the word “archaic” holds particular feminist words;

I dream of Jeaniebewitched 5

in the original Stepford Wives 1970s, it was a war of words, wives were replaced with robots who were programmed to speak only in pleasing and soothing tv commerical ways,and with a limited vocabulary list, default to giggles, gee hubby, you are so much smarter than me….master

The Problem with Grease – that Danny lettered in track and good boyed up to earn Sandy is lost in her trollop transform or the Slut Suit Up…

I remember in the magazines they published stories about how she was too embarrased to leave her trailer because the costume was too sexy. It was actually her own clothes.
