In Australia we use bugger a lot.
Like "Well Bugger Me!"
Which is something akin to 'Well I'll be F'ed!"
I have always been of the mind it is not what you say, but the intent behind it that matters.
You should be free to say whatever you want to a degree.
If it's not being said to intentionally be hurtful, incite trouble, then it should be okay to say.
Call me a cracker. honky, skippy (aussie slur for whites used by italians and greeks) it's a word. I actually take pride in it and I seriously I just
People make fun of and use slurs based on my height. Should I start a Very Tall Peoples Victim Support Group?
Is it racist?
An aboriginal walks past me I just see another man. He says "F'in whitey"
I'm like "why thank you for noticing sir. I am indeed a F'in whitey and proud of it!"
Sticks and stones. I learned it when I was little.
Boggles my mind how certain words can aggravate people to violence etc.
Powerful things sometimes, words.
But for me it's all noise. Information. I only care about the intent of the word.
It's about how you use it.
If someone said "Yo my n'word'a! what up?"
I'd not even register it I hear it so much these days from all walks of life.
I'd not care one bit. I know what the speaker intends by it and it's not malicious.
But if you said in insulting manner "You're a goddamn useless n'word'er!"
I'd think you were a dick. Because I know you're saying it to be a dick.
It's not the word. It's the way it's used.
Say what you want for all I care. Say I'm a Trump Supporting Hillary Kissing Reptilian Hitler Zombie. Just don't be a dick about it.
And if someone is a dick about it walk on and don't engage them.
Just go about your business.
Otherwise like all actions. Accept the potential consequences.
Really that's what all the worlds problems come down to. People just cannot mind there own #ing business.
Being called Nazi or Snowflake won't kill you.
Being stabbed in the eyeball and having your house bombed might though.
Them priorities hey?
Call me Harold, Call me Earnest, Just don't call me late for breakfast.
