I think you make your point excellently. I used the word "Ned" to show my contempt for this individual's voluntary bad behaviour - not because of his race, religion, sexuality or anything like that.Cugel wrote:I feel you need to get a better grasp of these taxonomies and nomenclatures so that you can differentiate those that are defined by voluntarily bad behaviour from those that refer to involuntary conditions such as sexual orientation or skin colour.
