he he people are too sensitive. It is an accurate definition. We shouldn't use it as a word, perhaps, but we shouldn't lie about what things mean. it's long been known here as a word like "urchin". in the old times, street children and chimney-sweeps were called "street urchins" or "street arabs".
i once heard a christian preacher express anger that the first definition in the OED for "Jesus" was "an exclamation of surprise, dismay, etc."
people need to be less anal most of the time. we take ourselves too seriously.
