Ruth, you are right. That is true.

It is also true that it is used as a term of abuse.

In circumstances where your definition appklies, you are right, it isn't offensive.

In circumstances that have witnessed, it is.

This isn't an argument, more of a jigsaw.

You aren't wrong and I'm not contesting your observation, I am adding another piece of the picture that you may be unaware of.
