Wow… a lot of people are offended by the expression ‘hon’…. I am trying hard to wrap my head around this. “It makes me feel small” people are saying, and that it’s condescending. That sounds so horrible to me, I can barely see the…

I didn’t intend to address adri as anything, That was just a title for the post, not meant towards anyone in particular. This whole thing started off as a miscommunication. My entire post was purely to illustrate the fact that different backgrounds are going to create different feelings behind words and phrases. In a lot of cases this can be a bad thing. It’s how we get cultures that are okay with committing atrocities. But on the other hand, it’s also able to perverse things that were meant to be good. I feel like that’s what happened here… But please correct me if I’m I mistaken. I wrote a separate post regarding what
nintendonut1
had said, cos it was an excellent point that I had completely disregarded. For that, and for all the reasons previously stated in that letter, I’m sorry. So could we talk? I don’t want to cause all this anger and I’m honestly just trying really hard not to upset anyone further. I thought by talking about it openly we could clear up the bad vibes going ‘round. I want nothing more than to clean up this mess that I’m responsible for.

if you’re gonna keep shoving the narrative that this is just about people being offended despite your best butter-wouldn’t-melt intentions, then no, we can’t talk.

If this ISN’T about people being offended then could you please tell me what it is exactly?

I’m not trying to be clever. I’m not trying to make excuses. I have apologised over and over for saying things I didn’t even know COULD offend people. I’ve been completely honest and genuine with everyone and have gladly taken responsibility for my actions.

I really don’t know what I can do for anyone anymore. Being sorry isn’t good enough. And I don’t know what is.

Hey thanks for clearing that up. When all I saw on Adri’s twitter feed was her mention of ‘hon’ being a problem, I assumed that was exactly what exactly problem was. There wasn’t anything to indicate that anything else was an issue.

Sorry for not taking the rest into account. I was so caught up in my surprise, I overlooked the rest of what was said. This failure to communicate has been tremendously bad on both ends, and I’m just trying to set things right. Joking about addiction … No, I’m not going to make excuses, it just isn’t funny. You’re absolutely right. It didn’t even click until you brought this up.

Can I help it that I find what she has to say entertaining, though? She’s a brilliantly insightful person, who’s constantly doing a fantastic job to raise social awareness. I’m not sorry for being happy to see good people doing good things. The world is a shitty enough place, and frankly a lot of the things I see on tumblr, especially the SJW blogs, are inspiring and enlightening, and give me a general hope for humanity. So what if I’m entertained? It’s a GOOD thing!

Even though I felt it was clear that the context made it clear that I as just having a lark, you’re right to criticise. So, I’m sorry for this whole mess.

Love Ya, Hon! <3

Wow… a lot of people are offended by the expression ‘hon’…. I am trying hard to wrap my head around this. “It makes me feel small” people are saying, and that it’s condescending. That sounds so horrible to me, I can barely see the screen for the tears it brings to my eyes. For a term of such endearment to cause another pain? …. The thought alone of this makes me weep.

Growing up in NC, ‘hon’ is what you called your friends and people you just generally liked - it was endearing. Every fella at that only gay bar in my whole town was ‘hon’. We looked out for each other, and cared for each other when nobody else would. It showed we loved one another, regardless of where you came from, or how you got there. Each of us was in the same boat together, fighting against a community that didn’t want us there… But we had each other, and we we and are all each others’ hon. It’s a term that gets passed around faster than sweet ice tea in that place.

Today, as a joke, I told adriofthedead “…hon, I think you’ve got a srs addiction. :T “, referring to how frequently I see her posts on tumblr. If you don’t know her, she’s an amazingly talented, and very socially aware blogger, who’s views I have the utmost respect for.

And apparently that pissed her off, as well as quite a few other people who feel that the term ‘hon’ is a demeaning thing, not endearing. The number of people who felt that way surprised me, and all I can think about is how sad it is that we live in a society now where terms of endearment can’t be shared without causing offense.  I really don’t have much more to say on the matter.  I’m sorry to have offended people.
