Rant on word usage #2

Usage of a word that needs a good ranting

UGLY

A word that I have come to truly despise chiefly because of the excessive usage of it. Some people, I have realized, have made it a habit to make use of this beautiful word in order to express their expressions fully. Most common applications for this word may include faces, animals, places, dresses, facial expressions, etc. Its a highly degrading word and it pains me to see people usually using it for every thing they dislike.

I am not halting people from using it but the abundance of this term all around me is excruciating and has caused me to judge the person in question negatively. I personally am against this word and would be the first one to vote for it to be removed forever from every dictionary on this planet.

This word is interesting. Now that I think of it, the only time I find myself using it routinely is when describing the landscape of the city of Houston, LOL. (I hope you don't live there, by the way, that could *so* trigger an 'ugly' (for me) rant! :D)

I find using a negation of a positive is a better way to get the point across. We could all always do better with our words, though. In rant mode, I really mean I wish others paid more attention to the words they used. There's usually a way to get a point effectively while being respectful.

LOL, I am not a big fan of Texas either and also, am in the hot - and sweet - Cali.. moreso hot than sweet though lol.

Completely agreed. People should seriously stop the usage of profanity. I just despise the F word! There are some other good words which could be used - my all time favorite is "badtameez" even if its for goras LOL. :P
