Of course, I disagree with Tyler’s logic here — the “gay just means you’re stupid” and “words only have meaning if you let them” defenses have been disproven hundreds of times. You only have to turn on the news for a minute to know that this way of thinking doesn’t match the reality around us. Words do carry the weight of the past and affect our lives in the present, whether or not Tyler or anyone else wants them to. But even though his logic is flawed, the sentiment comes from a hopeful place that thinks we should be free from the labels that society forces on us. It’s naive, but it’s kind of admirable.

I agree with both the author and Tyler. words are words and they are words because they have a meaning but tyler simply doesn't give a fuck and thats his point
