Complaining is one of the ego's favorite strategies for strengthening itself. Every complaint is a little story the mind makes up that you completely believe in. Whether you complain aloud or only in thought makes no difference. Some egos that perhaps don't have much else to identify with easily survive on complaining alone. When you are in the grip of such an ego, complaining, especially about other people, is habitual and, of course, unconscious, which means you don't know what you are doing. Applying negative mental labels to people, either to their face or more commonly when you speak about them to others or even just think about them, is often part of this pattern. Name-calling is the crudest form of such labeling and of the ego's need to be right and triumph over others: "jerk,bastard,bitch"- all definitive pronouncements that you can't argue with. On the next level down on the scale of unconsciousness, you have shouting and screaming, and not much below that, physical violence.

 isn't there irony in calling your uncle a redneck?

One of those rare occasions which makes you laugh from a forum post :P


Anyway, to the OP: Dude, come on.. class?

People will talk however they wanna talk.. i myself don't like to women bitches [and dislike to hear others call them that quite franktly, unless playfully].. At the same time, it is not your or mine job to tell them to stop using these words.. If you wanna take that job, fine.. As if they'd listen..

We're not some people who like to think of themselves as 'high-class'. I don't like it when people feel they're inferior or superior [hidden inferiority] to me..
I feel inferior and superior sometimes too.. hopefully i can reduce these times to a minimum, as when you feel that way, you're not doing what you want -- you're performing.your inferior/superior role [in the gay language this place has a adapted: you're doing , instead of being].

Anyway, one thing is certain: I won't think badly of someone who uses the word once in a while.. If he keeps cursing all the time it might be a problem cuz then he probably has other issues than the language one.

Sometimes even i do stupid shit and go around my workplace shouting " diarrhea with no diapers! WOOOO!!! ".
It doesn't mean i'm stupid.. it just means i like to fool around sometimes :P

 Back to the original topic;

It's easy to say, "don't you have something more important to worry about?" but well, you can frame anything that way.  Ultimately what I'm talking about is integrity.  Do you have something more important to worry about than integrity?  

It's important to me to express myself in a way that does not offend people around me, because well the 'me' that I'm expressing does not have any negativity to dispense.  

I think this thread has revealed a lot.  One guy said, "I use Jew as a curse word, but that doesn't mean I don't like Jews."  This proves that regardless of whether you think something is offensive, it does not mean that the person being offended is unwarranted.  It would mean that the instigator is clueless.  

I guarantee that if you're at the bar and talking to a new group of people and you say, "I went to buy a car today, but the salesman was some faggot who tried to Jew me on the price," you ain't gonna make too many friends even if you think 'faggot' means 'loser' and 'jew' means 'greedy'.    

Think about the fake logic behind how a word changes meaning;  'Faggot' started out as word to demean gay people.  Basically the equivalent of calling afro-american people, 'n*gger'.  Then what happens is that the group of people being insulted start using the word themselves, but with a different twist on it.  It appears to reverse it, like how 'my n*gger' can convey 'my friend' if it's said by an afro-american guy.  But that doesn't change the origin of the word, it's just a culture's way of disarming the word.

There's something sad about the fact that people want to defend their right to use these words, rather than say, "yeah, that could be offensive, so I'll drop it."

Like anything, this stuff will click for some people, and sound like 'complaining' to others.  It just depends on who you've met so far and the different perspectives you've allowed yourself to see.
