Police were recently called in after a 9 year old boy said he wanted a “Brownie” for desert.
While I am not quite sure how saying the word “Brownie ” is offensive.
After all what are we going to call these?
— Free speech— something we still enjoy legally (for now) in the United States— is about protecting our right TO offend.
Limiting speech is all good until— its not so good. Once someone decides a particular word should NOT be said because it is offensive its only a matter of time before— as you can see here— ridiculous.
