Reclaiming the Swastika
Oct 12, 2003, 21:17
[I have no idea of the political persuation of the folks here, but here goes anyway:]

Well, not just the swastika - I was put off the runes for quite a while due to some of the symbols being used by somewhat dodgy right-wingers. But the swastika is the most well known symbol that has been abused. Can it be reclaimed? Or have the Nazis destroyed that possibility (after only using it for a few years)? Manwoman, an American artist, has spent most of his life trying to reclaim the symbol - he is tattooed with at least a hundred of the things (http://www.manwoman.net). Is he on a hiding to nothing?
