Why is the "n" word such a bad word? What does it mean? What are the definitions of these words? "n" word; cracker; c*nt; bi*ch
This is sort of a spin off from the post about white people using the "n" word. In that thread the word "cracker" was mentioned as a comparable word to the "n" word. This idea made me wonder if people truly understand the definitions of various slang and insulting words. I have a feeling many people do not understand the actual definitions because if they did they would not use the words so freely.
One example is the "n" word. Many people think it means ignorant. If it really meant ignorant why would so many people flip out over being called this word? Why wouldn't we call "ignorant" the "i" word?
Here goes, what are the definitions of these words?
Feel free to add other words you feel are misunderstood and I will add them to the op.
