"My best friend / relative is ___" and "I donate to ___ charities" are not good excuses to use hurtful language willy-nilly.

I don't consider this to be censorship, personal or institutional. As per the anti-harassment policy, I'm simply asking you to stop using the word as a jocular metaphor as I consider it harassing behavior, and expecting you to comply. As a non-member, I am not advocating your removal, nor can I.

Yes, I get upset when people say 'thats gay' because Im queer spawn, but i have never corrected anyone on it because I knew they werent really serious, just ignorant and ignorance is suffering, so reacting to ignorance is reacting tp suffering.
> thanks Nicholas, but i don't feel i'm either ignorant or suffering. If anyone chooses to consider my use of the word "rape" as a tongue-in-cheek metaphor to be an expression of insensitivity toward women's suffering, then you're mistaken. My sister was raped once, and she still suffers from it. That's one reason i have done volunteer work for Women Against Rape.
