Anonymous said: In an earlier post, you used the word "g***y". This is an ethnic slur, against the Roma community, and I am requesting that you not use that slur again. There are many substitutes that describe the aesthetic that it was applied to.
I’ll use an example, lets take a look at how the word “black” or “dark” can be applied to the color or style of an art piece and is utterly harmless when done so; but when applied to a person - more specifically the color of their skin - it can be offensive. Even then, before offence can be taken there is usually the involvement of malicious intent as applicable adjectives can almost always be used in a non-offensive manner to distinguish one object over another on a daily basis.

In Britain the word is often used to describe travellers, typically in a derogatory manner - but it’s the context which makes it offensive, not the word itself.
There was no malicious intent - nor even a potentially malicious context in what we said as it does not disrespect any person or group of people, and I’m writing this message just to ensure nobody is misunderstood with regards to our use of the word “gypsy”.
A word on its own is not offensive.
