Your boss would be looking out for the profitability of the paper and using words that a large majority of the population find offensive would not be a wise move
that does not work for me, if you find the word offensive then dont use it, but dont try to claim that you have any say in the words that come out of my mouth because you dont. You have no more right to claim that I should not use the word nigger because you dont like it than you have to demand that I dont have anchovies on my pizza because you dont like the smell of fish. If you dont like the environment of the room that you are in, in either smell or language, then move yourself. That is the remedy that is open to you, the only right one you have. Well that, and sucking it up and letting other people be free in the hope that they will allow you to be free. "I'm offended!" is not your make everyone else do what you want them to do card. I say go ahead and be offended if you have to be, and thank you for telling me so that I know, but I am not going to change who I am or censor myself to make you happy, and you are wrong to expect me to do so.
