If someone were to call me any of those words and I didn't know them, it'd be a whole different story. But again, not even just because of the word itself, because its really disrespectful. The same way it would be disrespectful for someone to use any word to call you outside of your name.

As a black person, I might be slightly more offended by a stranger calling me a ****er as opposed to bitch, pillowbitergot, asshole, etc because, given the history of the word, the person must be REALLY trying to piss me off when using it..
See that just doesn't make sense to me. You're taking a very volatile word who's meaning could range between friendship and hatred, and depending on your interpretation of "Intent" to determine which. Why bother? It's not worth it. Nobody who uses that word is doing themselves any favors. The overwhelming majority of the uses for the word have negative intention, so what's the point of hanging on to the small window of use between friends? It just makes no sense to me....
