Monster Bear

(no subject)

Look, I'm not saying that I think anyone should be walking around using racial slurs and hurtful epithets in everyday conversation. I have a serious pet peeve over people, for instance, saying "that's gay" to mean something they dislike, as it seems to be one of the the dumbest things ever said.

But, for the luvva gawd, I hate the term "[insert letter]-word". As in "the n-word", etc.

Communication is important, and finding a way to describe what you mean, especially if you have to refer to a taboo subject, makes it all the more so.
