常濫用於口語的調侃字詞的22個建議

chun-yu's 的頭像
在我們的生活當中,"智障"這個詞常常被濫用於口語的調侃或辱罵。特別是智能障礙者的手足或父母,往往除了覺得難過之外並不知道如何回應才好。這篇文章蒐集了一些很棒的對應方式,我從22句話中選用4句精選回應,裡面其實有一些也是我用過的對應方式。也謝謝身旁的朋友-特別是在我說了之後,能夠把這樣的想法傳達出去的朋友們XD
 
9. 我覺得小心選用我們用的詞彙是很重要的。理智上我知道你並不是要用這個詞來傷害我,但是這並不能改變一個事實-也就是說情感上它傷害了我。如果你能夠使用其他的詞語來表達你想表達的事情,對我來說會有相當大的意義。
“It’s really important to be careful about the words we choose to use. In my head, I know you aren’t using that word to hurt me, but that doesn’t change the fact that, in my heart, it does. It would mean a lot to me if you could find different words to express what you are trying to say.” — Gabrielle Leah
 
4.我想讓你知道,當你使用這個詞的時候,我總是會很傷心。每次你使用這個詞的時候就是在輕視我所愛的某個人
“I need you to know it breaks my heart when you say that. You are belittling someone I love every time you use the word.” — Cassie Mareesie
 
5. 當你這樣使用這個詞的時候,你可能會傷害到別人。你是個好人又那麼有創意,可以找到一個詞來正確傳達你想說的話、又不會傷害別人嗎?
“Using that word, in that way, can be hurtful to others. You are kind and creative. Can you find a word that more accurately says what you want but isn’t hurtful?” — Maureen Geurin
 
6. 你永遠不知道這個詞對其他人造成的影響。你永遠不知道這個詞對誰的孩子、手足、或是朋友可能是極端醜惡的攻擊。我想還是最好不要用吧
“You never know how a word like that is going to hit somebody. You never know who has a kid or a sibling or a friend who has that word lobbed at them in the ugliest way. It’s just better not to say it.” — Tiffany Howard
