So came across this story http://www.bostonmagazine.com/news/blog/2013/11/12/apple-dictionary-app-sudbury-teen-gay-defintion/
And it reminded me of a discussion that a few users were having regarding the use of the F word and how and why it's used in different ways and different contexts. Do you feel the f word could ever be used in a way that isn't infused with negativity against a homosexuals?
Do you think that people shouldn't use the word even if they are in good faith not using it in the context of negativity against the lgbt community?
In general do you feel that certain words should be retired from the vocabulary or do you feel that such actions are giving words more power then they should have? Are people too sensitive to certain words regardless of the intent behind the use? Or do users of certain words still carelessly and needlessly validly offend despite their intent
