No they wouldn't, because the people I consider friends aren't wankers.

When you've actually lived through a traumatic soul destroying event you really don't give a shit about four little letters.

Quote:
If you answered that you would use the word, then you are kind of heartless and inconsiderate to your friend.
And your father sodomised you on a regular basis throughout your childhood. Isn't it great to make stuff up.

Quote:
If you answered that you wouldn't use the word in this situation, then you obviously see how this could be damaging, and maybe can see how the word usage isn't appropriate, as anyone you said this too could have the same reaction to your friend, as it is likely you wouldn't know if one of your good friends had been raped anyway.
No, I know exactly how many of my good friends have been raped. You might say that's why we're good friends.
