Awwww Mitchies!!

What do you think, can Mitchies use that word? I think he can. The RMitch uses it with me. And he calls the RRon a faggot (usually in a long southern drawl). We all laugh. Mostly because he would probably do some serious damage to anyone who would hurt either of us. I sorta kinda had to tell him not to do anything when he read about what had happened. Since both he and RRon know the guy.
RMitches also had to deal with all my transition stuff. Coming home at the end of the day and crying my face off. Emotional instability, depression, all of that. RMitchies never turned away. He wasn't particularly helpful, mind you, but he was perfect in that was, like, normal. He didn't have to be supportive of me being transgender. He was supportive of having his friend. Like being trans wasn't important to him. Because it never really has been.
That's my justification for him to be able to use it and we can laugh. Thoughts?

I think it makes sense. People underestimate the value of taking something offensive and turning it into a joke, but one in which the word loses all of its power, as opposed to one in which power is taken from the victim of its barbs.
