Words one cannot use

I'm wondering if there are regular words that cannot be used.... because they might have other meanings too. ??? And, offend someone?

I tried 2 times to add a post to a thread; discarded in a flash each time. I used the proper word for the tiny human creature with wings that flies about spreading seeds in the garden, and sometimes is even know to give a coin in exchange for a tooth.

I know this word has alternate meanings, but really!? There are many words that social groups have given another meaning; does that mean we cannot use these words in their proper use?

Sorry about the mini-rant, but I'm a bit confused and frustrated by all this. (I must be getting old.) Hurrump!!!
