I disagree with the ˜whore' statement.
If the sum total of all the misery, all the sorrow, all the pain, and despair in this world could somehow be measured at any time, at any moment, at this moment... why would anyone knowingly choose to add a single ounce, a single drop, a single tear to the total?
I understand, but for me, when used correctly, it's simply a matter of English.
My 1951 edition of Webster's dictionary defines the word ˜whore' as:
1.a WOMAN who engages in illegal sexual intercourse, especially one who engages in promiscuous sexual activity for pay, a prostitute, harlot
2.to be a whore
3.to fornicate with whores
And that's way back in 1951!!! I don't use it specifically to refer to promiscuous women; like I said before, IMO it's anyone. And again, bad behavior begets bad consequences.
