It’s just semantics, but don’t forget how important words are.

You know what I really don’t like? It’s using the term “pimp” to mean “promote.” Pimps are (usually) men who financially own women and control their lives as sex workers. Many of them are abusive and manipulative. It is not a positive thing to be a pimp or to “pimp” things.

Please, please, feel free to support, promote, propagandize, endorse, hawk, or shill my books. Please don’t pimp them out.
