I do not want a political discussion based on my comment, but many Trump supporters have referred to themselves as deplorables based on something Hillary Clinton said. Do bogans like the word bogan?Which words are there that were or are considered offensive but which were reclaimed by the people against whom these words were used against and turned into something more positive?
So far, I could think of the N-word (which Blacks nowadays use as a term of endearment but hate it when non-Blacks use this term), queer (which LGBT people began using in a more positive light a decade or two ago), and yid (which Jews recently began using in a more positive light). However, what other such words are there?
