Thanks for writing this article Fox, I actually didn't know this whole history. I'm shocked that homosexual and transsexual would be banned but faggot is not, seriously Blizzard? They say they want to protect the players well that doesn't really add up. I'm part of the LGBT community and I must say this just feels icky to me. How often do people really use homosexual or transsexual as slurs, we all know that people would be more incline to say faggot or tranny (Yeah I have a hard time even writing that). Thanks again for the hard work on the article Fox.

I've heard a lot of words used in a derogatory way, and many benignly (fag - cig, gay - self description) but I have never heard Faggot being used benignly or Homosexual / transsexual being used abusively. Homo sure, but homosexual? Unless someone is trying to be ironically well spoken... and never transsexual. Generally speaking bigots tend to keep it simple, after all you don't want to break the flow of your tirade to look up the spelling.
