Times have changed, and words have too
It's easier than ever to offend because, as a whole, we have become more socially aware of the way words can negatively affect people. That being said, we all are likely to put our foot in our mouth because as times change, many words also change in their level of acceptability. Spoiler alert: Shoe leather tastes bad.
So, make your mother proud . . . steer clear of these words that used to be inoffensive but can now do more harm than good.
