The function of words is to carry meaning. They do not function outside of context, and some words carry their own context as well as meaning. A word which came into existence in the context of/for the purpose of demeaning and subjugating people and continues to be used for that is not neutral, in my opinion.
Quote from: Tom62 on November 03, 2022, 09:37:19 AMCould also be culture related. I grew up in a time and place where words just didn't matter. We found it rather silly that in the US words were beeped out, because they were considered to be "offensive". We thought it was quite normal to be very direct and use very innovative curses.
