*DISCLAIMER* Some "bad" language... even though it really isn't. But some people consider it.
You see and hear hurtful comments everywhere. "He/she's fat", "he/she's ugly," "he/she is dirty". Now who says this? Us, all of us have made a judgment once in our life. I have made judgmental comments in my life. But why? Why do we feel the need to put someone down? To make our life better? There is one part in Mean Girls (yes Mean Girls :P) where the narrator says, "Calling someone fat won't make you any skinnier, calling someone stupid won't make you any smarter." That is my favorite phrase in a movie. We call each other names and for what? Does it even benefit our lives? No! You don't win $1,000 nor do you win anything. These comments may not affect us but it does affect that specific person you were talking about. How do you think they feel? How do you think they would feel if they heard that? Yet we blab to our friends on how she's a cunt, whore, slut, or fat ass. Or how he's a douche, hard headed, prick, or fag. What if you were called that? Do you think you'd feel so special then? People say things and think there is no consequence, well that isn't the case. I'm trying to be a better person, I have the occasional slip-ups but I've been doing better. No one should be put to shame because of these words. If they don't like it, surely you wouldn't either.
