I decided a long in my heart of hearts I mean no wrong to anyone and if people are offended by something I'v said then that's there problem not mine! You can't please everyone and no matter what you may be offending someone for example the "little person" maybe offended by that term, you can't win! It dose my head in!

Definelty, it's not right to hurt people with names. I just think it's being taken too far. Example, it's not proper anymore to say midget, its a little person. Handicapped is now physical disabled. Retarded is now mentally disabled. Although I think retarded is a bit harsh. I say they are "special" people. I also think that if I'm talking to someone, why should someone who overhears be offended. I'm not calling them the name.

I agree to a certain degree me and my partner often have the debate, I don't think it's right to hurt people with names but how is a nursery rhyme offensive to anyone?
