  1. People telling me to mind my language are just being stupid. Oh please, sounds offend you now? If it’s the meaning behind the word, I get it, but there are words with even worse meanings and yet those words are socially acceptable and the sound of it isn’t censored on TV and stuff like that.

    1. Yeah exactly. Also how is a word bad if you aren’t using it in an offensive way? Also how can u change a single letter in a word and suddenly everyone is appalled? It’s just a word why does everyone freak out?!?! Plus it’s known to increase memory, vocabulary, pain tolerance, and bring friends closer .
