The chair of Princeton’s anthropology department, Carolyn Rouse, defended Rosen’s decision to use the racial slur. The purpose of the course, Rouse said, was to give students the ability to clearly state why hate speech should or should not be protected, using an argument other than “because it made me feel bad.”The underprivileged have to learn the language of the oppressor -- I cannot shrivel up in a ball every time someone talks about how trans people are mentally ill or sexual deviants or whatever. It is so hard to take but how am I going to ever win any progress for us if I just collapse? I have to take the hurtful insulting terrible language in order to fight them and claim my, and other trans peoples', rights.
