    Only if they're aware that uttering those syllables bothers her for some reason.

    the assumption would be that most people are offended by that use.

    Why in the world would someone assume that any particular person is offended by the use of a single word in any context?

    Why would anybody be offended by any words in any context? Because they have a direct correlation to that person's context or past. The caller in this incident is in a situation where that applies, just as I have seen you break down when someone pushed your buttons, and on an anonymous forum, no less, which is a whole lot less than one's own home with her husband's friends.

    Really? So how the **** is any one person supposed to know how any one word might or might not have any kind of correlation to a particular person's context or past? Mind reading?

    The husband's friends are just taking their cues (or liberties) from the husband, so if the husband can't respect his wife's concerns and stand up for her, he's a terrible husband. That's at best. At worst, he may simply be enough of a douchebag that he tosses around (and believes) the phrase "bros before hos," in which case the wife has a much bigger problem.
    agreed. what i posted to jallman.

    It says maybe they've been watching too much BET?

    I dunno, Liblady. I think if the black population wants people to stop using the n word, they should stop using it themselves. That was Dr L's point. If I went around to my Italian family/friends saying, "Yo Ginny!" or "Wassup Wop?" I would imagine those words wouldn't retire anytime soon. I just don't hear that in the Italian culture. Heaven forbid anyone bring up the M word. Everyone just scatters.

    I have absolutely no idea how you arrived at that. While some people may have been arguing that using the word at all is bad (which I would largely agree with but is still irrelevant to my point), what started the thread at all is a caller asking how to deal with her husband's friends who were making racial jokes/references that made her uncomfortable. The "she's being whiny and hypersensitive" has a been a predominant position in this thread. She wasn't asking that people magically read her mind.

    I have zero interest in opening old scabs. If you don't believe that there are words/references that can hurt you, then there's no point in discussing this further.

    agree completely. but two wrongs........and for me, it's just plain rude. it's almost like a person saying "i'm fat"........i wouldn't say to them, "god, you're fat"......

    Well I am glad you are empathic enough to understand all that from a single interaction on a radio show lasting about 3 minutes without hearing anything at all from the other side of the conflict.

    As for me, I will just maintain that I am a poor human muggle without such illustrious mind-reading powers, Dumbledore.
