I’ve been wondering how offensive certain things are in relation to others. Please rate the following in terms of how offensive they are to you. You can do his by ranking them, putting them in “offensiveness groups” (i.e. Offensive Enough To Make Me Violent, Offensive Enough To Make Me Yell, etc.), or numerical rating, etc.
Note that I separate out the “races” because it is clear that some people find making fun of white people more tolerable than others. Maybe there are other distinctions as well.
Please include everything below in one overall offensiveness system (i apologize for the lack of organization)
Using a slur against blacks (nigger, etc)
Using a slur against asians (yellowskins, chink, jap, etc.)
Using a slur against hispanics (i have no idea… chico?)
Using a slur against nationals (frog, kraut, etc.)
Using a slur against native americans (dirty injun?)
Using a slur against whites in general (cracker, etc)
Making negative racial or ethnic stereotypes/jokes against each of the above (i.e. blacks are brutish, hispanics are dumb, indians are crooks, etc).
Making a neutral racial or ethnic stereotypes/jokes against each of above (i.e. blacks like jazz, hispanics are all religious, asians are math-oriented, etc.)
Making a positive racial or ethnic stereotypes/jokes against each of above (i.e. blacks can sing well, hispanics are good lovers, asians are good at math and science)
Making fun of or insulting fat people (tub o’ lard, etc)… Note this includes jokes and such
" " " women (bi*ch, skank, whore, etc.)
" " " men (bastard?)
" " " gay men (cock sucker, etc.)
" " " gay women (dyke, etc.)
" " " retarded people (dunno about these)
" " " handicapped people (cripple?)
" " " psychologically troubled people (nutcase?)
" " " ugly people (turd-face, etc)
" " " geeky people (nerd, etc.)
" " " country-ish people (redneck, hick, etc)
" " " christians (fundie?)
" " " athiest or wrong religion (heathen, godless, devil-worshippers etc.)
" " " poor people (welfare bums, etc)
" " " rich people (yuppy?)
" " " uneducated people (plebe, ignoramus?)
That’s all I can think of. If a certain type of group insult is a distinct case for you, feel free to rate it in some way.
