Now there is a thread all of its own. I loathe this business about words only being acceptable from one group of people, it is entirely counter-intuitive. When for example did you hear a gabshite saying, "houl'on lad I'm a gabshite and it's ok for me to say it but you're being gabshiteist"? Never is the answer, never ever ever in yer long legged life did you hear that from a gabshite.
Thus, either "nigger" is unmentionable to all or it's not. I'd go with the former. I was recently told I should not describe someone as a negro either, the word is black. Really? Is negro an unacceptable noun these days, many suggest it is and yet in the USA the United Negro College Fund is famously the largest funder of educational opportunity for minority students and funds several "Black" colleges. Again is it ok for them to use Negro & not me?
Anyway, I digress, girls can call girls, girls and N-words can call each other WTF they like. I often think I've lived too long or more likely that life is too short for all this shyte.
I have often described weemin of my acquaintance as "a girl well up in years", doubtless that makes me a sexist pig and I should never play rugby for Ulster or Ireland again. The fact is, I have already told the FIRFUC's not to even dream of selecting me, though I remain available for Ulster.
