There is, in my opinion, an easy, short answer to this new writing prompt. So, I won’t keep you long.
To ask which word would one “permanently ban” infers that banning speech of any sort is alright. Allowable. Not only does the US Constitution protect all speech, that we each may freely verbalize without recourse, but it is also a God-given fundamental right overall. Only God Himself is able to curb or remove my ability to speak.
Thus, the short answer is “none”. As much as some words are irritating, even repulsive to me, there is no word I would ban. I am not God. Neither is anyone in any level of government, or government itself God. The idea that “banning words” is alright with anyone should enrage everyone. Since a lot of this nonsense is taking place in our various institutions, we need to wake up and put a stop to it. The next step might be to ban you.
Anyway… I said I would not keep you long and, thus, I shall end this here.
