Use of the word "spastically"
Some feedback on my zombie story has suggested that the word "spastically" could be offensive. I can see the possibility of this, but in the context of the story it's probably the most appropriate word to describe the awkward movement of zombies.
Do you think it's a word I should avoid in case it is offensive? I'd like to get some other perspectives before deciding whether to change it.
