Some of us allow our sensitivities to overrun our sense of responsibility.
Lots of slang terms out there in the chicken world! I use the term"roo" all the time. Oh! How old is he? So you have a cockerel eh? Duh, yep its a roo!
You are not the only one who is challenged....
I have the little smileys on my phone (emojicons). I kept sending my girls this smiling piece of chocolate. Finally one says to me, "Mom! You know that's a pile of poop, right?!"
I simply have a no-texting rule. People know to not expect a text in response, and I ended up (unintentionally) calling my dad out when he sent an email using that texting shorthand. I thought his email account had been hacked. Nope, apparently it was my old man trying to be cool. I referred him to my son to clear that up.

Ok... I'm gonna have to tell you chicken folks what happened last month when we were talking genetics on the dexter proboards. Apparently the proboards has built in software to change words it seems inappropriate. We were discussing genetics and I was using poultry linebreeding in an example and was talking about having backup genetics. Part of my response was, "... and since I lost my best cock, I'm glad a had a backup".
Well you guessed it... not only did the software change the word cock to penis, but I was totally unaware of the change until they next day. You can only imagine the fun several people had at my expense. My husband could not quit laughing and wanted to know who his backup was. :-/
