That's the point. People use words to differentiate. I agree we shouldn't use offensive terms but some of us don't think things thru or their not just as offended.
It's not the same thing as sports teams, friend. Take a step back and think about that one for a second.
If someone calls the professional football team in Detroit.. actually, I'll step back from that one because Detroit doesn't really have a football team.
If someone calls the football team in New York "the Giants", there's no offense to that. If you were to call Brandon Jacobs a "New York Giant" to his face, I'm sure he wouldn't be upset.
On the flipside, if you go up to a girl and call her "fat", see what happens. It hurts.
I'm not trying to be the censor police, shit, that's the last thing I want to do, but I'm just asking guys to be just a little bit tactful, because whatever you do here, a message board, can easily spill over into a conversation/situation in real life.
