If that were the case, when I asked why didn't they say that's the reason? Ie. they have friends who have expressed to them that it hurts their feelings to hear those words because of x, y, and z experience. If multiple people told you that your language hurt them, that does sound like a reason to change your language. But that doesn't seem to be the case here - or anywhere - when it comes to the language being discussed. I've literally never heard of anyone sincerely objecting to the benign use of the word dumb outside of this weird controlling groupthink shit with insular leftists. OP's responses to my question doesn't indicate they have either?
