I love the message and appreciate his support, but I really wish Kendrick didn't misgender and deadname his relatives.

@franticfinesse: I think it's fair to read his use of deadnames and such is meant to underline the transphobia and homophobia that he himself is implicated in, but he really didn't have to try and be clever about it. Misguided no matter how generously you interpret it imo.

This is the best episode yet. And I love that Jan misidentified the bull in SH1 as a cat, and then when is shown an actual cat on the window here, identifies it as a dog. Wolfcat forever.

@franticfinesse@muttonbanditIMO it's the same as him using slurs in the song, an illustration of the difficulty of breaking out of ingrained ignorance and how the progression of the song itself is meant to mirror growth. If I heard correctly the first time he refers to Mary-Anne as "her" is when he's standing up to the preacher, while the music is building from relatively muted to a more passionate instrumental. The next time he's going to use an anti-gay slur he changes it to "f-bomb", and only uses the slur itself again in the final line- Where it's contrasted as a slur he could say that would hurt other people vs. a slur other people could say that would hurt him. I think it's an acknowledgement that growth isn't some beautiful perfect spontaneous thing, it can be ugly and unwieldy and uneven and sometimes even selfish.

Deadnaming people is shitty. Homophobic slurs are shitty. But between shitty and not-shitty is a journey that involves a lot of shittiness and I think this song is supposed to be somewhere on that midpoint. This is almost certainly going to be an agree-to-disagree thing but on balance I am glad this song happened.

@voidburger "Minger" is a British term which broadly means ugly but can also be used to denote something as disgusting. It's pronounced ming-er.

The way you were pronouncing it initially sounded very similar to a British slang term for vagina lol

This one had it all: puzzle solving with sheer luck, getting jumped scared by children, misidentification of animals, shooting off guns for seemingly no reason. Can't wait for the next part. Gonna have a good (bad) time.

@ramone: Well, I thought minger was a verb-y version of minge! Like calling someone a lesbian as an insult or something? Pretty weird that the UK has two different words that are spelled the same, said differently, and have different meanings but they're both cusswords lol

@voidburger: there aren't two different words though. "Minge-er" isn't a word. Minger, as above, is a pretty tame insult meaning ugly woman. That's about it.
