Re: The Euphemism Treadmill
Agreed, but it seems like even attempts at neutral description get appropriated every time as insults with implied moral judgements. The problem isn't the words IMO, but the social pathology driving ppl to hate and fear difference from the 'norm' - which when you look at it is incredibly abnormal judging by standards of mental, spiritual & social wellbeing evident in non-market societies. Failure to adapt to a deeply maladaptive system is actually a sign of greater humanity, not of being defective.
