Random thought on middle names

I'm sure you're all aware of the hub-bub surrounding the use of Barak "bock-bo-bock" Obama's middle name, but I was struck by the fact that his middle name is, indeed, his middle name. You could no sooner become upset for being called by your first name.

The anger around the use of the infamous yet completely accurate name arose from how others interpreted the meaning of its use. Which is fucking retarded. Not only do you get to comment on what others mean when they speak, but you get to impose your own misgivings about a name or word because it makes you uncomfortable? Well, fuck your jap spic nigger wap dego weaboo douchebag crayola bar-b-que orangutan biscuit cracker cheese waffle maple syrup football carburetor ding-dong pinochle interpretation of my words. (note, I'm half Mexican, so don't get mad about the carburetor comment) Attributing your own insecurities to others is called "projection", but no one seems to know or care what that is anymore.

I might as well punch you in the nose for saying "cheeseburger" because I think you said it to me in a derogatory manner. If someone's name was Gobbelcoque, would it be acceptable for people to use the proper name? Does anger at use of a proper name imply one should use a different name? Because that sounds even more derogatory to me. While we're all getting upset over words others use which we happen not to like, why not develop an aversion to the word "the" and become enraged when people use it in a sentence involving you?

Whatever. Perhaps someone will enter the political arena with the name Dipshit McFuckstick and put all this to rest.

Even then there will probably be some idiot getting mad at people using his name for implying he's a drunk.
