He's clearly making a comment about greens I think, or possibly gree. It's tough to tell.

He doesn't seem happy.

It may not be a "bigot" word but it is equally if not more so offensive. Both should recieve a warning or whatever is the cc norm.

I'm sorry but I don't think retarded is a bigoted word. It's a word that was used dispassionately to refer to ... well ... retarded people before a bunch of kids started calling each other that name on the playground. Now some people prefer "mentally handicapped" or whatever polysyllabic variation carries the day. Saying retard is bigoted is like saying moron, or imbecile is bigoted. Just because some people have appropriated a word like this and used it as an insult does not make it bigotry.

On the other hand, words like "nigger" or "faggot" (the latter when directed at a person) have pretty much always been used as an insult to people based on certain characteristics. As far as I'm aware, they were never used in a way other than an epithet.

Well, the "mentally handicapped" community generally finds the word deeply offensive when used in this way, and that's the ultimate litmus test for determining whether we should consider it bigotry or not.

Not necessarily. Fag is pretty much the equivalent of calling someone retarded in school kid terms. Has nothing to do with one's sexual preference.

Agreed. If fag is a bigoted word then retarded is too. Because both groups would be offended.
But what would be an actual good test would to be actually consider the CONTEXT for which the word was used. So neither would be bad.

This is where recently, I have come to realize that fag should be removed from the bigot word list. People have called me a fag before. I just shrug it off or ask them to apologize before I report. Then and only then can I draw a conclusion to whether or not someone is actually joking, or is actually saying I'm a homosexual. GeneralRisk here is using this to report someone. Even though it may be against the rules, it's still just an EXCUSE to report something.

And FYI, being called a fag shouldn't hurt you unless you really are one. ;)
