You've got to be kidding me?
What gets me is one woman who needs to really loosen up, complains-and they change the name of the play?
Unfortunately, this is also part of the wussification of America. One complaint, and people jump through hoops trying to soothe the complainer, instead of telling them to shove it, and just go on with the show.
And of course that word is offensive, especially in the Bible Belt, where they don't believe in being honest about sexuality to begin with.

She's as nervous as a very small nun at a penguin shoot.
My parents hated "baby talk." Even in the early 1960's, they refused to use euphemisms of all types, even in public. Their teachings rubbed off... I hate terms like "passed away" instead of the saying the real word...DEAD. That's an example.

She should be hit on the head with a very big hammer
