90. It's about thought police because it is, in the end, just a word.
A nasty, hateful word, but a word that is often misused by young people. We're not talking physical assault. We're not even talking uttering threats. It is a *word*, just a word. You say your kids were taught to respect others. Can you truthfully claim that they ahve never, ever said anything like that?

You talk about respect. So you have never ever referred to Teabaggers, Repukes, called Bush mentally challenged, or made any derogatory comment about anybody you disagree with ("inbred spawn of the Alaskan spider?" what does that even mean?) You have never gleefully reveled in someone's private sexuality being made public (but then it's all about the hypocrisy, right?)

I don't think anyone here should throw stones about being civil.
