7. An interesting post
"The irony stems from the fact that heterosexuals have a veritable thesaurus of epithets and unflattering teminology describing homosexuals and homosexuals have..... well, "breeders"."

I am not sure how to take that. Is it ok then to use the one term some have that is "unflattering" because others have more terms which are as "unflattering"?
