Oh! I believe I understand. Ok. Yeah, well, is that a problem in America? Not for the majority.
Hence my confusion.
Among celebrities, they sue each other over being called names.
Libel I think?
Is that what you mean?
Or a celebrity using a word that’s not considered appropriate?
I’ve seen that n the news, yes.
Among regular people though? I don’t think it’s as big of a deal.
Celebrities live on their own planet it seems and they make all the world news. But the stuff that happens in day-to-day life is nothing like that stuff.
If you’re in a position of authority, you are supposed to be respectful of those under your charge. The rules of what is considered respectful/disrespectful changes and morphs with the times.
Perhaps that’s an areas that regular citizens have to concern themselves with not-saying the “wrong thing” – if they are in positions of authority over others.
But in my experience, it seems that people say what they feel like. Arguments are commonplace, sometimes over the most ridiculous things. That’s pretty universal.
Generally speaking though, there’s a strong freedom of speech among citizenry.
