      Why do words like these, which have real meanings, get misused to a point where they cannot be said without it being offensive to someone. We are the ones who decide what words mean, aren't we? How do these words become frowned upon in our society? These 3 words, even the word nigger, have a real definition attached to them, contrary to what others may think.
      Why should words like these even exist..

    • They exist and are used in a derogatory manner because there are a lot of people who are unhappy and don't like themselves and feel it necessary to put other people down, to insult those who have a different viewpoint, etc.

      Also, I wish people would stop making everyday words refer to something sexual. There are a lot of words we can't use anymore! :rolleyes: ^^
