If the persons on the end of them feel they are offensive then they are.

But how far do you go along this road?

If you call someone fat, ginger, four eyes, wobblies (slang for disables apparently), lanky streak of piss, midget, mussies, etc, etc, then they are by the same definition also.

Ideally we should all live in peace and harmony with each other but that's never going to happen anytime soon, so how do you get people to see others beyond the colour, religion, body shape, disability, etc, etc?

I've no answer but by stopping the use of such terms by means of peer pressure/acceptable social norms would be a good start but I can't see that happening anytime soon either unfortunately.

Does anyone remember The Spastics Society? Now known as Scope, they used to collect donations in our local area.
It was only ever used as a derogatory term in my youth, and has rightly been replaced.

I wonder how many of the complaints were from people with stacks of music by arseholes like Kanye West and Cardi B who can't seem to get through a track without casually slipping it in there.

Absolutely agree that 'N' is a vile word, but it can't be right that one person can have their career destroyed for saying it when so many people just use it willy nilly in their music which then gets sold and lauded by the media.
