obamasteak asked: Hi. I saw the post where people commented on your tattoo, I'm a gay arab and just want to back up the other people who've said it definitely isn't offensive if you get tattoo in Arabic, I mean nobody owns the language.. I was a bit worried at first cause I thought you may not have known what it meant & there might have been some malice by the tattoo artist but I'm surprised & pleased to see that this was your way of turning the insult on its head - it takes away the negative power of the word xx
Thanks man! I stand by saying language is for everybody, the world over. This tattoo is about the act of words being used to hurt gay men and that happens in every language, in every country. I guess some people just can’t look past the fact that i chose arabic instead of english, or french, or chinese, etc etc.
