  • I guess it depends on how they use the word...are they just being funny, or is it meant to hurt your feelings?

  • nah, not really.i find it funny. i try to laugh at alot of things, they say its healthier and it definitely makes me feel a LOT less drama queen.

  • Actually, I've never been called that in my entire life! But, yes, I would probably take offense.

  • It depends on who's saying it and why they're saying it.

  • Can't imagine why anyone would call me ghetto but since I'm not, no it wouldn't offend me.

  • I know I do because in some situations it's just like is it really necessary to call someone "ghetto" because they do or say a certain thing , it is easier to laugh it off but theres always that one time where you just know they meant it in a negative way and you want to just slap some sense into them
