I still don't understand why people let words affect them. Words only have the meaning, weight, and connotations we give them. Yes, sometimes its hard when things remind you of uncomfortable things. Let's be adults about it and ignore how a word makes us feel and look at whats important. That is morality, not preference in verbiage. This is just silly.
Then again the general public IS ignorant and so will focus on things like wording instead of morality. Then there are the people who want to distract form the actual issue by focusing on how much people care about what word is used to describe something.
We can use all the pretty words we want but it is what it is.
