If you use a term regularly, then find out from members of a minority group that they find that term offensive, and your reaction is to stop using that term, you're probably a human being.

If you use a term regularly, then find out from members of a minority group that they find that term offensive, and your reaction is to dismiss their complaints with cheap semantics, false history, and use of terms like "politically correct," you're an asshole.

If you see someone else act like the human being described above, and your reaction is to dismiss the complaints they chose to acknowledge with cheap semantics, false history, and use of terms like "politically correct," you're an asshole squared.
