mrgrande:

You are missing the point of the writer's reference to to the "Urban Dictionary". She never suggested it as a credible authority of etymology or proper use of diction. However, as one of her children indicated in her piece, it is a fairly reliable baramoter of how the word continues to be abused in common use in our schools. It is one of the last socially-acceptable manifestations of hate language (and, I agree with her assessment that it is hate language) still in use.
