Gay youths are still ending their lives over the pain of being called this word. If society is outdated, and we need to move past slurs, why would society want to take back the "f word" instead of erasing it from our venacular?
I'm well aware of the misogyny and homophobia of hip-hop as a whole and the fact that Azealia's male counterparts say similar things on wax and outside the studio, but I'm specifically irritated and baffled by Azealia's ignorance, behavior and theories because she's a black bisexual woman.
