A physical reaction to a word? I simply don't believe that. It's not a scream or similar. I believe you are
overstating the case.

Please do not abbreviate any words then. Only full use as found in the dictionary is appropriate.

Sounds slightly ridiculous doesn't it?

Cali and Frisco are commonly used. And sorry if it offends your fragile nervous system,
somehow. Seek help for that condition, would be my recommendation, if you indeed suffer
blackboard scratch blues"

Then half the state is composed of wiggers. Or maybe just not those actually in SF. I've heard it commonly
all my life. Cali and Frisco, both. No one promised anyone a life free of annoyance in any case. Get over it.

What's with the labeling though? Anyone who doesn't agree with your nomenclature is a "wigger"?
Not a very "laid back" accepting attitude, really.

Now that's funny! The Mutt's nervous system used to pull wounded out of the jungles of Vietnam, come back to the base, light a joint, smile and say "it don't mean nothin' man". I'm not sure I ever met a more level nervous system.

No, it doesn't sound ridiculous. Lots of people don't like lots of words. Why, believe it or not, some ethnicities don't react well to certain words ... and religious types damn sure don't like a lot of words. I could go on. Here's the top most disliked words of 2012:
'Whatever' slips a little, but continues reign as most annoying word - UPI.com
But beyond that list is a vast history of irritating and annoying use of language ... as old as language itself.

It's clear from my post that I don't believe he suffers an actual physical reaction from hearing the words.

I refer you to George Carlin on the matter of words that can't be said on TV or otherwise.

I assure you I am a pretty fair proponent of free speech, and use those terms frequently, as do
very many other people around me.

I could give a flip about religious peoples objection to "masturabation" or any other dirty words

Well, you see it's like this: you are free to believe whatever you wish in America ... And use whatever language you desire ... And others are free to find certain words and phrases obnoxious ... And, as the Mutt said: millions do [find Frisco and Cali obnoxious].

Knock yourself out sport.
