222. That would be GLBTs
Every time a Rethuglican gets caught in a sex scandal there are countless gay jokes spewed here on DU.
The number of Do you think Republican X is gay? posts here is astronomical. Accusing them of being gay is not based on any evidence , but merely meant as a slur.
Even here on DU we have to fight with people who don't think we deserve equal marriage rights.
We have to defend ourselves against people who support themselves or others denigrating us based on their "deeply held religious beliefs".
People think it's cute to post little songs and jokes insinuating politicians have homosexual orgies with one another.
Any time we try to point out homophobia or ask people to stop it we're told to "lighten up" and even accused of "histrionics".
Every single time elections come around we're told to stop demanding our rights lest we "lose the election for the Dems".

Of course there are more issues I can't think of at the moment but those are some of the most significant and pervasive ones.
