When you're not ashamed of being something, its power to injure you is reduced. If you can't make a word less hateful from the perspective of the person using it, you can at least lessen your capacity to be hurt by it. When people see that their attacks are genuinely not bothering/hurting you, they're more likely to leave it alone.

What if a white dude wants to tell a black dude not to say faggot? That is a perfectly valid example of when a white person should tell a black person to shut up, and not say certain words, because the premise is valid. Right and wrong is what matters, not which race is which race.
