did you tell her she was too sensitive? cuz that was what you said in ur first post.
people's past and backgrounds make them sensitive to certain things and who are we to say you are too sensitive? a black guy who was a victim of racism may be sensitive to the word nigger compared to a black guy who grew up without ever encountering racism. someone who is concious about their weight may be sensitive to the word fat. someone who was bullied may be sensitive to the word ugly. so who are we all to say that someone is too sensitive?
