Today's poll is about the politics of our language.
I've been thinking a lot about what words we use--and what words the folks who disagree with us use. Over the last few years, I've become comfortable with certain usages--and I was shocked out of that complacency yesterday when I heard really good reasoning why I should use the term I had discarded. Before I tell you my own thinking on this issue, I would love to hear from you.
What do you say? Why? Why do you think other people (who believe or don't believe what you believe) choose to use different words?
