you remind me of the anti-Semites who think the Hebrew word "goyim" is an insult. or the cis guy who, the same week that he first heard about the word "cis", decided that he wasn't "cis" even though he was also not trans (I am sure he has a better position by now, tho)

the word "settler" is a neutral descriptor. there is a case to be made that it's an imperfect word, and another case that, like, Words Are All Spooks. but no one is "imposing a settler identity" on anyone, hahaha

if anything, I think the general vibe in this convo right now would be that, uh, "settler identity" (that is, "Canadian" or "Québécois" or "U.S.-American" identity) is bad and people should snap the fuck of that stuff!
