2d38 – Watch your language, how we say things does matter!

0:23:55 Download (MP3) Your vote: Debate with us!

What is considered taboo or impolite to say varies widely but it looks like every culture has its rules governing what we should and should not say. In today’s debate we’ll be debating if that is necessary and if it truly matters (and should matter) what words we use.

Thank you for your comment, Matthias! Well, yes and no. Initially I would have agreed with you, because indeed my sister was upset and everyone in the car who was listening to the conversation ganged up on me. But then, six hours later, the fact that she said she would actually look into the matter of what we were discussing seems to indicate that my blunt style of talking did work. Granted, I had apologised in the meantime :-). Maybe here’s the twist: how one says things doesn’t really matter, especially if one pretends that it does 🙂 (and perhaps says “sorry” for being too blunt!).

the argument about you speaking with your sister sounded like an argument in favour of the motion
