I often think the old saying is arse about face "sticks and stones may hurt my bones but names will never hurt me" when in fact it is probably more painful the other way round. (Not that I would condone either )
Here's an update from me ...

Sticks and stone may hurt my bones but names might get you (starts counting on fingers):

Arrested, tried & convicted of a hate crime.
Sacked from your job.
Made homeless.
Ostracised by friends & family.
Discussed and slagged off on social media.

Although I've always known it as "Stick and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me."
