You can't take the stigma off of that word just because you think it shouldn't have it.
And the more the PC folks make a big deal about it... the longer it will be perceived to have some sort of "power"...
At some point in your life you were taught or just accepted as fact that some word... THAT word is so horrible we can't even speak it or write... we must abbreviate it because it's just that
Me personally.... I think that is ridiculous..... I have a friend John... he lives in Arizona... he won't type the word God.. he types G-d. He does that out of reverence.. (it might be a Jewish thing.. not sure). Something like that I could understand.
I asked before... and I'll ask again..... Why that
word?? Why not some other swear word or racial slur?? It's THAT
word because a small but very vocal segement of society decided that it's such a horrible word that nobody of another race can say it. Or type it. But they
can.... somehow it became their word... they own it. They can say it, write it or rap it if they want to.
But because I'm white I can't??? Isn't that discrimination?? Nahhh.... not when it applies to Whitey!!!
