    Words or phrases you can't say any more.

    The **** I can't...

    But anyway. I'm compiling a list of socially forbidden words beyond the obvious ones. I'd appreciate INGO's help. Below is a few I have so far. If you think of one or come across one sometime, post it here.

    For some of the puzzling ones I'll post an explanation.


    Retarded: Offense: disparages special needs people. Because some people can't imagine a usage that does not disparage special needs people, it's a socially banned word.

    You people: Offense: stereotyping. Because some people can't imagine a usage in which it is not used to stereotype. When I say, Hey. Any of you people want to go for some pizza? If you think that's offensive. **** you, you're not getting any ***damn pizza.

    Rule of Thumb: Offense: supports wife beating. The claim wrongly conflates this term with a rule that men could only beat their wives with a branch no bigger than the width of their thumb. However, the "rule" isn't a law or precept. It is a measuring device, like a ruler. Don't have a ruler? Use your thumb. I just measured my laptop to be about 20 thumbs wide. The earliest references to the word have nothing to do with wife beating. It means a rough estimate.

    Gyp: Offense: racist. Disparages Gypsies.

    Hysterical: Offense: Sexist. Greek-ish for uterus. So the literature says. Since some people have used it to describe emotional women, it feeds the "neurotic" stereotype. I find that hysterically funny. But, about stereotypes, many start because they're at least a little true. Some are just made up to put people in groups to disparage. Some are derived from common observations about a group.
    -embracing cognitive dissonance sets you free.
    -spread the word to save the r-word.
    -advocacy is sane; activism is retarded.
    -what if you’re full of ****?

    How about existing as a straight, white, Christian male? that seems to be pretty offensive to many. Bonus points if you are even semi successful.

    Not my monkeys, not my circus.

    Suddenly monkeys are no longer monkeys. Suddenly it means that one dislikes black folks. Not true.
    Just call me lollipop.

    Paddy Wagon - insulting to the Irish (as if they could be insulted)

    Long time, no see - insults blind people

    Off the reservation - insulting to Native Peoples.

    Grandfathered In - the practice of giving white voters better access, because their "grandfathers" voted before a certain date. Colored folks' grandfathers couldn't vote.

    Hysterical - derived from the Greek word for "uterus". Meaning, all women are crazy.

    Einie Minie Minie Mo - the "tiger" was originally a disparaging term for a colored person

    Basically, we need to stop communicating, because if you look back far enough, every word or idea has insulted someone, somewhere.

    I just tacked it in on the end because I couldn’t figure out a way at the time to work it in with using the other socially forbidden words to form my non give a crap line.
