  •  Totally missing the point there. (0+ / 0-)

    The point is that you tried the justification that a word only means what the people who use it for THEMSELVES say it means.  This is NOT how language works, and it's important to point this out because demanding that others must call you what you insist they call you is an attempt to control THEIR speech.

    "I want to call myself X"
    is a totally different statement from
    "I want everyone else to call me X".
