No. But people whining about it does become tiresome sometimes.
I suppose some of you will be happy when the whole dictionary has been re-written.
when they don't like what they saying they can't really give a reason for disliking it, or some type of deep-seated hate or prejudice.
My dad is bigger than your dad.
Whining is an arrogant term for use for one adult addressing another,
I had no idea you were so easily offended.
It's more than a little ironic that you're simultaneously complaining about words which offend you whilst wanting words which may offend others kept in usage, don't you think?
Not for the first time you've used those words "stop your whining" you have used those words directed at me before on that other post.
My dad is bigger than your dad.
I will get my bruv.
You lost get over it.
You won stop your whining.
If you say so.
You've been conned.
Don't believe everything you read.
Those sort of comments are usually used in retort.
I don't really like personal comments that much but I have to say that you use those sort of comments too many times directed at people who are opposite or opposed to your opinions.
A bit like "I had no idea you were easily offended".
I am only offended by unnecessary diminutive comments at anyone on these posts.
don't worry too much I've never seen reason to complain about anything you have written officially that is.
As per usual in all of these situations of Whatever the latest fashion in the media is to pick up on, it's a minority of activists who seem to hit the headlines.
There does not seem be many comments coming from your average people in the street on both sides, I mean to say what do BAME and White people in this country Generally think about the whole situation?
The trouble is that white people are just going to keep their mouth shut because anything they say would be regarded as being racist.
But also I get the impression that some of the BAME people also don't want to say much too.
Through fear of everything turning a bit nasty.
The problem is that in the past when things have been mentioned about injustices in this country we find that five years down the line nothing much changes.
And I'm not saying this is going to happen and I don't want this to happen for sure, but I believe that nothing much will change for a very long time generations even.
As for words many of us grew up with, these words before we even had ever heard the words racist or even knew what they really meant, that supposed some some groups might find offensive, aren't really that offensive it's just that they're good for chucking on the fire.
If we want to be democratic about the whole thing then we need to use democracy and not mob rule.
In no way am I being diminutive about the situation like "Windrush", Many of us couldn't imagine what it was would be like to be in the situation of working in this country for many years and in finding that we are booted out.
if we start to consider things like "white goods "and "black list/market ", it's going to start to be very difficult to have a conversation with anyone let alone across ethnic groups, people are simply going to interact even less.
Words should be taken in context.
How are you going to remove all the bad so-called bad words and phrases from things like car manuals, brake Master and slave cylinders.
Next it will be nipples
male and female mechanical parts used in machines et cetera et cetera.
