is kawaii an insulting word in lolita?

Have you ever used or been told "kawaii"? Does the word tottaly rub you the wrong way, or just had you saying "WTF was that person thinking?" If so, what did you do? Ignore it? Talk to the person about it, or yell at them?

I haven't really seen a problem with the word, it never offends me. But I did hear of somebody dismissing me for using that word for I used in a title for a lolita meetup, I won't give the details whom this "other" lolita was, but let's just say to be clear that I do realize that lolita has nothing to do with being kawaii.) I'm sure some of you will agree or disagree with me here, but I don't think it's a word that should not be really argued about, actual people who know nothing of lolita have come up to say I look cute.

It is a simple misunderstanding if it is such one, this may be a heated debate, but I guess I could use some clarification about how to go about saying kawaii to aword that lolita like to use best and prefer said. Does everyone know what I'm trying to say here? I'm so confused.
