No, you are perfectly allowed to get upset by that word. But if you are allowed to get offended by an offensive and cutting word, then stop acting like it's stupid for other people to get offended by your stereotypically, derisive words. Evaluate people as the individuals they are. When you feel the need to stereotype you have to recognize others might get as offended by that stereotype as you are by that (absolutely) offensive word.
