Carlin is always my go to in concerns and thoughts about language. In a later bit, expanding on the 7 words, he talked about context, and to a certain extent, appropriateness (something he went into better detail about in his autobiography). If you truly think words don't make a difference, and people are too sensistive (I'm speaking in general now, not specifically to Maymer), drop the f-bomb continuously at work or school; go to an area where there's a high African American population and drop the N-word. go ahead and see what happens. There's a time and place for everything. I tend to curse like a sailor at times, but I know when and where it's appropriate, that's called common sense, something those who think they can say anything at anytime seem to lack.

"I don't understand what you're saying here. If I think someone is too sensitive, and that words don't make a difference unless you let them, and I go and attempt to provoke someone that, to my belief, is being too sensitive how exactly does that prove me wrong?

Not to knock George Carlin, but I've always been wary of arguments regarding complicated social matters coming from comedians.I'll always hold the arguments of academia and studies over someone's anecdotal experiences and assumptions. Always.

@Tfish92 If you can't-won't is closer to the truth I suspect-the very simple and easy to digest example I made, then nothing else I can say, is going to help you. I suggest you brush up on your reading comprehension skills.

@TfishWhile that was an incredibly witty turnaround of what Raingod was trying to say, why take the focus off the point? You know what the point is, or you wouldn't have said what you said. By your logic, if I think people are whimps because they say ouch when I kick them in the shin then going and kicking a bunch of people in the shins wouldn't prove me wrong. Fundamentally, you're right, it wouldn't. But the reality is, I'm clearly ignorant and wrong for thinking they are whimps in the first place. Maybe the example isn't the most logical, but it's nonetheless accurate. If you do either of the things in Rains example, it's a good bet that almost everyone will have a problem with it. If you're too dense at that point to realize that maybe you are in fact the one that's wrong for thinking the way you do about it then there's no hope for you in the first place.
