Kongsue Xiong had often said that the word “Mong” means something very negative and so he cannot accept that word. He took someone else’s definition of the word and said that it applies to who we are. Mong Equality Committee had often explained to him and those who hold the same fallacious view that things don’t work that way. You shouldn’t take other people’s definitions of a word and make it yours. Otherwise, you run the risk of incorrectly applying a definition to a word that meant something else.
Below is a post from Ntsib XyoojTsu to Kongsue regarding how damaging Kongsue had been towards Mong Leng by illustrating to Kongsue what his name meant if one were to use the same fallacious tactic that Kongsue used.
