I assume he is referencing earmuff and trainwreck when they use the word "nigger", which is known to be a derogatory term, and their only defense for it is, "It's just a word."

actually my defense for it is I'm not using it in a racist or degrading way.

It's like cunt. Cunt is a horrible swear word, some would consider worse then fuck.
But why does nobody here care? Because it's used 24/7.
Take faggot for another example, back in the day if you called someone a faggot you'd get your head smashed in. Today people call faggots left right and center and nobody cares.
So nigga please, if anything I'm desensitising people to the word. I mean isn't the real tragedy of the word that it has the power to offend?

So your welcome TTA.

As regards to my thread in the world news section, well, bemore covered that.

They tell me I'm the shit, I'm like 'duh...'

Earmuffs, you know I like you and respect your opinions on most everything. But - why the heck you have to throw around words that hurt people - when it is no skin off your back not to do so - that is beyond me.

Just cut the crap. It's at best childish rebellion, and we don't have to get into what it is at worst.

If people are hurt so much by one little word then quite frankly they need to sack the fuck up.

Really? Are you such a stupid little boy that you haven't figured out yet that words matter?

Or are you just an insensitive jerk devoid of the ability to feel empathy?

Nah I'll think I'll stick with my option, but thanks for the suggestion all the same.

Hmm... lemme see...

Killed
Tortured
Raped
Sodomized
Beaten
Degraded
Victimized
Abused
Preyed Upon

... and the list goes on. In your mind, it's one little word. In reality, it is a contemptuous term, used when oppressing. What's listed above really did happen.

Hurt so much by one [...] word?

Yes.

You've got ears, take your own advice and sack the fuck up.
