That focuses on the meaning that YOU ascribe to the words though. To YOU, "general offense" language isn't that bad. To someone else, it IS "that bad." The words have a different meaning, a different severity to different people. You are attempting to force YOUR opinion on someone else. Whether you are right or wrong isn't the point. It's that you are saying "this is what I think the words mean, so you'd better agree." Saying "you should use this word, it's just fine" is little different from "you can't use this word, I don't like it." It's still one person telling another person what to do.
