A discussion on the use of offensive/derogatory terminology

So back to my main point, I think we should be mindful of words that we use, and if say my ideas got widely accepted in society this will create a corresponding social pressure to not use unneeded derogatory language.

 

You mean like this?

 

 

I think I should be mindful of what comes out of my mouth, but I don't think I have the right make that value judgement for others. The whole concept of "we should not do this and not say that" smacks of Fundamentalist self-righteousness. Bleah. 

 

Insults are part of being human. If all it takes to destroy people is a few words, what a sadly weak society. The answer is not in controliing everone's language, it's helping hyper-sensitive people become more resiliant. 

 

Does this idea hurt your feelings? Ah. Poor baby...
