but since we can't get the point of rhetorical questions on the huddle..

No, lady of the night is a euphamism to avoid saying the words I listed. So no it's not the same. Any other crap arguments?

however had scot called her a "lady of the night" it still would have been a problematic thing to say considering the context

Mr. Scott calling that woman a Wench does not bother me in the slightest, mainly b/c she is a self-righteous bitch

how is the fluidity of language a "crap argument?"

here's a nice example:

late 13c., wenche "girl or young woman," shortened from wenchel "child" (12c.), from Old English wencel, probably related to wancol "unsteady, fickle, weak," and cognate with Old Norse vakr "child, weak person," Old High German wanchal "fickle." The word degenerated through being used in reference to servant girls, and by mid-14c. was being used in a sense of "woman of loose morals, mistress."

i appreciate what you're saying... but frankly even websters backs me up.

wench [wɛntʃ]
n
1. a girl or young woman, esp a buxom or lively one: now used facetiously
2. Archaic a female servant
3. Archaic a prostitute


it literally says it's used facetiously in the dictionary. it also acknowledges the archaic definitions separately. How it's used... i can't speak to... but as far as the literal definition of the word... it's really not offensive.
