Round 10: Day 13

Sorry this is late – got stuck in Albury without a net connection!

This was a bit of a response to some of the terminology that gets used around my workplace.  I pinned these up on Friday on various noticeboards.

    I was trying to explain to a student in my class how they just couldn’t throw the word Gay around. I understand it has been re appropriated and doesn’t necessarily refer to sexual orientation, but still using the word in a negative context then continues to belittle a section of society.

    not only is it totally offensive to use the word ‘gay’ to describe something as bad… it’s totally 90s!!

    my felllow illustration students think of me as gay and when one of them asked me for help with something and then said it was looking kind of gay I said if you’re going to use ‘gay’ as a perjorative I’m not going to help you. ‘what?’ she said.
    Apart from not knowing what pejorative meant she had no idea she had even said it. One day at a time sweet jesus….
