    Hey Everybody,

    I was just thinking about this, what are the words or phrases that you cannot stand to hear anymore?
    Also if u would want to replace it with something else what would you repalce it with?

    I'll start......if I hear anyone marching and singing the song " we shall overcome" anymore I think I'm gonna rip my hair out..

    In order to adhere to the forum rules "no cursing" of course..
    Peace Everybody.....

    b****, skank, ho, chickenhead, *****, dog, and any other negative term we tend to use other for each other.

    none of these names do much to uplift yourselves and still only causes division and more hate for each other.

    "know what I'm saying?" Some people sprinkle their sentences with this question constantly as though the person they're talking to is mentally challenged.

    Thandiwe ... your posts are not gone. In an effort to focus on the topic Mahogany presented, i moved all of that discussion to its own thread. You can find it here.

    "Player Hater" is PLAYED OUT...

    ....I'm so sick of hearing people throw the "hater" term around whenever someone is in disagreement with them....if I'm not a sheep, and I got my own opinion, then that makes me a "hater".....whats up wit that...???....
