'Gee' is also an alteration of Jesus.
I always tell kids that I expect to hear the same language I use in
I also tell them - and my own children - that I can't always control
what others say, the only thing I can control is my reaction to their words.
It is that reaction that gives any word power.
That doesn't mean I condone the use of objectionable words. But in
the real world, they are going to hear a lot of things, they have to know
how to react and appropriate ways to react.
