  •  I like to use "grandma" as a similar example. (2+ / 0-)

    A young man says to his grandmother, "hey grandma, you dropped your keys."  He can say that, but if some unrelated person said the same thing it would be rude.

    Another is "honey."  You and your spouse can call each other this, but whoa, if I do it suddenly it's inappropriate---so unfair and impossible to comprehend!

    I find it fascinating that something this basic and obvious is apparently an incomprehensible injustice among the right-wing.

    Taking jokes seriously is the exact mirror activity of laughing if someone says they have cancer. --jbou
