    words are words.

    if someone calls me a fat bitch then so be it.
    that's their opinion. i know it isn't true!

    I wouldn't say the 'offend' me.. but there are some that I definately don't appreciate.

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    Not really the words, but rather the intent and who's using them.

    I don't care if it's a double standard or unfair, but it enrages me when a man casually calls a woman a cunt. Not so much when a woman does it.

    I do think there's a type of "ownership" to certain words, and that certain groups are more "entitled" to use them more than others.

    When certain women here call other women cunts, I might nod in agreement. Let a man do it, and I'm likely to tell him to sit his ass down someplace.

    usually it depends on how they are used. I hate it people say they are gonna get some pussy or refer to my girly bits as a cooch (sp?) or couter. or cunt, dont ever call someone a cunt, even if they arethat to me is highly direspectful. but other than that nothing really bothers me

    Oh yes! Definitely rankles, that word.

    I also don't appreciate the word "gay" being used as a pejorative, which a lot of stupid, ignorant teens are doing nowadays.

    The word doesn't bother me, it depends on who is saying it.

    Editing this to say that words don't bother me, mostly it's phrases.
