Don't Call Me Hun.

Lately I have been seeing people complaining about being called Hun. I understand to some people that this might not be what one would call a term of endearment. To these people I just want to say "Sticks and stones make break my bones but words will never hurt me" or "I'm rubber your glue whatever you say bounces of me and sticks to you." Remember those phrases from when we were kids? When we were five and six years old we didn't run around getting all butthurt over a word..we just taunted the other person with some silly quote. I have seen people say "In my culture that word is not a term of friendship" or other such things, followed by "Respect our Cultural Differences". Hypocritical if you ask me, because there is absolutely no respect coming from them on the cultural differences if they get all over someone that term is culturally acceptable for. I have a great solution to the problem, and a great way to have a little mutual respect. If your friend calls you Hun and that word really is just so terrifying that it makes you want to gouge your eyeballs out, then ask them to stop using it, a true friend would. If it is someone you will be talking to ONE time about some sort of business, the SUCK IT THE HELL UP! The whole world does not need to see someone bitch and complain about one little word that 99.9% of the people who use it only mean in a kind and friendly way. I thought we were all adults on the adult grid in Second Life. How about we all start acting like it? Is that too hard?
