Reclaiming comes from the English word to reclaim and can be translated as to reclaim. It refers to a strategy of political self-empowerment in the form of appropriating discriminatory attributions and foreign terms. This includes, for example, the use of the N-word by Black people or the use of the derogatory term B*tch by women. In the course of reclaiming, queer has meanwhile become a term that – formerly used as a swear word – is now used to refer to oneself and others.
