Can gays use black girl slang?

39 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I often see that common "gay" slangs are often appropriated from black girl slang. Things like sis, shade, tea, etc. Is it okay for us as gay men to be using that kind of language?

1. We are already using it.

2. Why would it not be okay?

It’s the other way around. They ridicule us more than almost any other group in the US but steal our culture. :toofunny3:

Gay POCs (of any color/ethnicity) yes, white gays no.

The line is so blurred as to who came up with what,

example "Okurrrr" being made up by a white lady comedian YEARS ago,
but half the internet thinking it was Cardi and the other half thinking it was Laganja Estranja.

 

At the end of the day it makes absolutely no difference,
no one is hurt by white gays saying "sis" or "tea".

If black women steal culture from anyone it’s from black gays, definitely not white gays. :dies:

No they don't. Y'all steal from them. Don't get tied up. 

 

OT: A lot of it is intermingled between black LGBT people and black women but either way, white gays will continue to steal regardless

Of Course yes. ATRL told me cultural appropriation was a lie in a recent thread. Personally, I ain't gonna get a permission from anybody to use language.

“Steal our culture.” :skull: The only group that steals are the white gays. Don’t be delusional.

Oh hey lipgloss. You now for as long as I've been a member, I don't think I've entered on thread of yours that didn't have me doubting your mental faculties. Is everything ok?
