Well, my mother was verbally abused by my father. He said horrible things, threatened her daily, but never once called her a "s**t". What I consider verbal abuse is probably different than other's only because I heard a lot worse growing up in a verbally abusive environment. To me, if it isn't as bad as what happened with my mother, I feel like what is happening to me, and what my boyfriend says to me is insignificant. I'm not as dumb as you think I am, haha. I'm just a little confused. I don't want to end a relationship over something "petty"

No one here things you're dumb!! Young, but surely not dumb. When in doubt, I say, if it hurt you, it's not petty. Yes, you certainly are right in saying that there are degrees of verbal abuse. But name calling is at best childish, and unproductive and does nothing to solve the problems that you are arguing about. But I think we all have a consensus here that says such names just aren't acceptable. It's not your job to "take it" in order to be a good girlfriend. You have a right to be in a relationship where you will be treated with respect and spoken to with respect and honor.
