When you are playing with a baby, you can use the n-word, the f-word, the P-word, the Z-word, and as long as you smile and use a soothing voice the baby will continue to smile and laugh. If an adult is driven to tears by a mere word, it's because somewhere along the way, someone taught them to react with shock and anger at that word. That gives the word power over the person so trained and conditioned, and power to those who use such words to control you. Our society gives too much power to mere words, and this undermines our society. -- Michael Rivero
