I've been surprised at how effective "Hey, that's not cool" is when people use "gay" or "faggot" as pejoratives and invectives. A lot of people, when called on it, will turn out to have not really considered the implications of what they're saying, and will stop- or at least try.
No matter how well you plan your phrasing, there is always someone, somewhere, who will find reason to take offense to it. It makes me tired.
This is true but beside the point, just as griping about how niggardly is not etymologically an ethnic slur is beside the point.
Q: What's the difference between a bitch and a ho?
A: A ho sleeps with everybody. A bitch sleeps with everybody but you.
Q: What's the difference between a dick and a douchebag?
A: A dick wears TAG body spray while singing along to Nu-Metal at your favorite bar and trying to start a fight with you after spilling your own beer on you with his clumsiness. A douchebag does all that with your crush fawning over him the whole time.
