..but that surely means also being self critical, hopefully?
The key word there is "self", not "other". The value of words, pictures and expressions should rise and fall on their own merits; just like any other goods. Its determined by its consumers and public opinion.

When I was like 10 or 11 years old, the bigger kids in the neighborhood teased me for wearing these purplish pants my mom bought me because they were on sale. They were calling me a "fag", and it nearly brought me to tears. But I knew for myself that I was not. Fast forward 10 years, and I meet up with these same guys with my hot girlfriend, and they had none. Lesson is that I never really needed to react to their insults and accusations.
