I can joke around, be insensitive, and generally as non-PC as the rest of the guild/party. But there are certain things I draw the line at, and tend to try to discourage them in chat - especially in guild chat. Being an officer gives me a small bit of authority, andI think that since I tend to be pretty lienent about chat in general, when I do attempt to get them to tone it down, it has carries a little more weight than if I was constantly nagging everyone.That said, the way the term 'raped' is thrown around does bother me a bit. But instead of throwing a tantrum and shrieking "I'M A WOMAN - RESPECT ME!", I've found that a cheerful 'Let's say WRECK" instead gets my point across. Luckily, most of the people I play with the most, and are on Vent with, understand and it's become kind of an inside joke with us now. We *wreck* Allies all the time!

What a great solution! Giving everyone a substitute word that works is perfect.
