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?

I still think the uproar was overly sensitive and she see's that side of it as well because of the context it was written in. More then anything she finds it irresponsible and quite stupid to not realize it would offend some people and create an uproar. She did find it offensive though. We had a great conversation about it actually.
