call me a wagon-burner, or a cunt...LOL...when did we all suddenly go back to the 5th grade? are we harboring some useless angst here?
You sound like David Yeagley, the anti-Indian white supremacist who once wrote, "Call me savage!" Do you really want to be associated with the likes of him?
If you think these words aren't offensive, let's do a test. Forget about publishing them in a trendy magazine written for like-minded hipsters. Go visit your Native elders, your grandfathers and grandmothers, and call them "redskins" and "cunts" to their faces. Throw in some "wagon-burners" and "prairie niggers" for good measure.
Keep repeating these words till you get a reaction out of them. According to you, they'll just laugh because insults don't take money out of their pockets or joy out of their lives. Be sure to let us know if these words turn out to be as harmless as you think they are.
Consider it an assignment for the staff of Redskin magazine. If you're as intellectually bold as you think you are, you'll do it. Write a piece on how you all went home and called your elders "redskins," just like the magazine title. I look forward to reading the results.
(And spare me the empty claims that I've actually called your grandmother a "cunt" and she can therefore sue me. Talk about your worthless drivel. How ignorant of the art of rhetoric can you get?)
If you sure of your convictions, Sheena, go ahead and perform this test. If you're not willing to do it, what does that say about your convictions? That you're brave when surrounded by your fellow twentysomethings, but not so brave otherwise? That you know deep down inside that I'm right?
In case Sheena chickens out, does anyone else want to try this test? Or tell us what you think would happen? Imagine entering a tribal council of women and saying, "In my opinion, you're redskins and cunts." Imagine the outcome and share it with us.
P.S. If you want my opinion on the contents as well as the title of the magazine, Sheena, feel free to send me a copy. I'll tell you what I honestly think. But I'm not spending $8.50, or whatever you're charging on your website, to buy one.
