    How does it make you feel?

    Are you offended by the "taboo" words and/or cursing? (Generally speaking.)

    Taboo words meaning "thats so retarded" or "thats so gay" and things of that sort.

    be cool.

    What do you mean by "taboo" words?
    you mean racial epithets?

    As for cursing, I almost never curse. Those who curse constantly are showing they have nothing better to say.
    Those who curse only when its neccasary have more of an affect than the first group.

    I don't get offended easily. They don't offend me, but I am aware of the fact that they offend other people, I try really hard not to say them. Sometimes it slips out, but typically only around certain friends. I definitely don't go around screaming it from the mountain tops.

    That'd have "deathwish" written all over it.

    I know some people who get offended when I say like "thats gay" or "how retarded". But I mean, I'm one of the biggest gay rights activists I've ever met. Not to mention that my second cousin is deemed Mentally "retarded". She's a wonderful girl.
    I'm starting to think that maybe I should watch what I say in public though.
