How is it misleading and inaccurate?

[QUOTE=Optimus Prime;6192667]Another perfectly usable workable word that the Willmores of this world have suddenly deemed offensive.

It's highly offensive to me. It's one of my friends favourite words and every time she says it I want to rip her face off and feed it to dogs but I could never figure out why.:curse:
On the other hand if someone calls her an idiot she hits the roof. Go figure.
