“An iron law of free speech on social media is that any site that allows you to use the n-word and call people homophobic slurs is going to be flooded by people who want to do nothing but use the n-word and call people homophobic slurs.” — Tamara K.
It’s something of a tightrope, to be sure. The only reason I don’t allow ugly speech (niggers, Yids, etc.) on this website is because it’s impolite. Far better to call the offender a miserable motherfucker because if we know one thing, it’s that motherfuckery knows no racial or ethnic boundaries.
I don’t care about homosexualism of either gender being referred to as homos etc. because it’s easier to type “homo” than “homosexual”, and “lesbo” than “lesbian”. Or you can go the Jeremy Clarkson route: “homosexualists”, “lesbianists” etc.
National nicknames are just that, and if the Frogs or Japs get all hissy about it, I don’t care.
You can call the fucking Greens whatever you want (see above). Ditto vegans.
