I feel, all this crap comes from abusive parents and from movies. Many people after watching a move tend to behave like a character that they want to identify with in real life.


Also, I don't know why, but this verbal assault issue is VERY pervasive in the AA communitys.
It's a problem all over, there is crud in every community. But I don't think I've seen it as much and as harsh as I have here in Texas. I have seen every stereotype there is to see here - stuff I thought only existed on TV. The language is bad enough to make me cringe and I grew up in the ghetto, surrounded by the bottom of the barrel.

Yet, the word "stupid" can really grind my gears. Kinda weird, huh? The GD term also stings (using God in a bad way). It's usually followed by MF - I feel like I need a rape kit for my poor wittle ears.

Or in my case, "Mom & Dad."

I don't believe in calling people names. It's both juvenile and something only small minded, insecure people do. As for words hurting....for me, words only hurt if the person saying them is someone I care about and/or love. Lucky for me, that never happens!

Personally, no one word could offend me...when people actually take the effort to insult me and they are spot on about it, that's a different story. Don't laugh, but this song actually offends me more so then anything anyone has ever said to me in my life, probably because... it is indeed, the truth:



YouTube - Randy Newman - Short People

Personally, when I want to offend someone, I don't just use the same old, tired insults, but I come up with new ones Like, for instance, I don't say "suck---------!" I say "make a light meal out of my colon" or "why don't you use the wash-off from my manscaping for listerine?" I mean, you hear things like that and you actually think about them, picture them, and the reaction is usually:

But, if it's a woman I'm insulting...Guys, LISTEN UP! Want to make a woman feel less then dirt? Find that one thing that she's covering up...a beauty mark, a little bald spot, those slightly unstraight teeth she trys to cover up by not smiling with he mouth open, and zero in on it. That, and no matter how skinny or in shape she is, call her fat! That always works to make her cry...not that I'm promoting making women cry, no, not at all...granted, I do get that funny feeling in my tummy everytime I see a pretty young lady in emotional distress, but still, I am not endorsing this behavior, just saying.

To children, almost any word such as 'stupid' or 'ugly' or anything else. Children's feelings can be hurt so easily, and the damage can last a long time. It makes my skin crawl to hear a parent address their child that way.

In adult language, the C word pretty much is the word for me. I've only used it once in my life, applying it to my BIL's wife who married him in order to pay off her credit cards, slept around on him, contracted herpes and gave it to him, and then tried to claim he beat her regularly. Anybody who knows my brother-in-law knows that he's a lot of things, but not abusive. So, yeah, the C word applied to her without question.

Ugh. How do women like that get proposals???

I watch "Bridezillas" and think, Why don't these men run for the hills?

Well, as I said in a different post, my only explanation has something to do with about ten feet of garden hose and a tennis ball. Because I never found a redeeming characteristic in her. My BIL's best friend, parents, and brothers all tried to warn him, but he just wouldn't listen. A year later, it was over after he had paid off roughly $20,000 in VISA bills.
