June 22nd: No, thank you


If you could permanently ban a word from general usage, which one would it be? Why?

Here’s a thought: Words are powerful and they can build you up, but when a word is used as a weapon to belittle, insult, and hurt someone, then that word should be banned. Does this make any sense at all? I mean, I would’ve banned the word ‘No’ to give more opportunities to ‘Yes’, but there comes a time when we need to say ‘No’. I’ll like for all curse words to be banned for at the end of the day, it takes away from a good movie, a good read and it ruins your character.

  1. I like your thoughts and reasoning, EM. Hatred breeds more hatred, and I wish people would remember that when expressing their opinions. This led me to think of a friend’s post, and it’s loosely related, but there was a monument where they removed a word that is now a derogatory and politically incorrect term. And he argued that despite the word being offensive, we should not change monuments. There is something to be learned, and it’s as if we’re trying to rewrite our history by removing these things. I think he made a good point, because we need to learn from our history. How are we to learn from our mistakes if we pretend we didn’t make them? Anyway, a slight tangent, but I thought I’d share, because it’s always amazing the things that a short post can cause another person to think about.

    1. Exactly. Hatred should be the last thing on our minds when we’re interacting with people. We have to remember that everyone is entitled to their opinions whether we like it or not. Of course, we have to learn from our history and I agree with both you and your friend. Thank you for sharing. πŸ™‚
