Avoiding the discussion is not healthy in anyway, even if the subject being censored is something illicit or illegal.
The reason something like thati is illegal in most countries is because it encourages others to feel or do the same, not because one persone is proving how much of an idiot he / she is.
There are limits to any personal right, and that is when your rights hurt someone else's right. If your speech incourages someone else to hurt another person then your right to free speech should be curbed in favour of that person's right to safety.
It has nothing to do with censorship, as far as I'm concerned say anything you like in your own home, or even to other hatefull individuals, but not to innocent mind that can be affected and infected.
And people who say such things are hardly going to be "cured" by saying it.
