The argument of contextuality and the void...come on, if someone screams "you're a bitch" on narrates, regardless if they were actually wronged or not, how does that make anything right? Use other language and confront the problem more maturely.

As for tougher skin, I can see validity in this Rig--but try to explain that to all the parents and loved ones around the world who have lost their children or partners because words alone had driven them to suicide or to other irrational, wreckless behaviors. (Has no one heard of cyber bullying?)
As I stated earlier, words are powerful tools.
Would you want to be the cause of someone hurting themselves because you thought it a great idea to run your mouth and embrass or deamean them in front of their peers?
