I can avoid using words that upset people, and it doesn't hurt me at all. I can still express my ideas, have conversations, get to know people, and make friends. I do it all without using words that make some people upset and angry.

The best part is that many people will return the favor. If I avoid being insensitive to them, they are the same to me. We can still discuss anything we so desire.

Isn't it amazing that something that takes almost no effort, and doesn't hurt me in any way whatsoever can make the world a better place for people to live?

I guess this is why I don't understand why other people don't do it also... and even worse, when those people complain because they're being treated the same way they treat people. The world tends to follow the Golden Rule. It treats you like you treat it.
