Having something against the word "hysterical" for its history is like having something against the word "gay" because of its historical usage... It's only offensive if you make it so. The English language develops constantly and the connotations of words do too, a "faggot" was once a pile of sticks, a "fag" is a colloquialism for a tab. Wedding rings have an arguably worse history than the word hysterical... (My own opinion on all of the above stated. No offence was intended).
