I'm not okay with them using these insults, but well, what can you do.. but! I'm extremely not okay with UT still carrying these insults -- it normalises that it's ok to shame people by shaming femininities, I would hope we're finally behind that.

      Just to exaggerate the effect, imagine UT also had "f*ggot" or "n*gga" and the like in it. I for one would just ignore that game altogether. When I fire up a game, it's because I want to have fun in my spare time, and being automatically insulted with insults that denigrate me as a part of some marginalised group is hurtful, i.e. the opposite of fun.
      Nooooo. Noooooooo. Don't bring that here. In a strong community, nobody cares about a few words, everyone just has fun. You should not be too sensitive that you can't handle this. Now those other words you have up there are not an exaggeration but rather crossing a line from insulting phrases to specific derogatory phrases that are meant to hurt specific groups. I hope you can see the difference there. You should be strong enough that if a game's bots automatically insult you, you don't think of suicide. If you know a girl that is really good at games (I know some) then you can just laugh at the phrase. I'm gay and if the game said "Need some help there Nancy Boy" I would be like "ahhh f*uck you" for a second and keep playing as i don't really care.

      I petition that we keep these "Gendered" and "Master/Slave" problems out of this community We don't need people here saying this game is made by the Klan.

      Lets all just be open, loving, and able to take a joke and have a laugh. They are taunts, they are supposed to taunt you.

              I think pelvic thrusts should only be given to Alpha players, cos sensible reasons...

              edit: Agreed on one thing, group taunt one may be removed but that's it.

                    OK the saying you fight like a girl has been around for decades and you decide to get mad about it now. Anyways its a game why remove it. Also if you get that triggered just turn off bot speech)

                        The first time I played 2k4 and I heard those insults, I could not stop laughing and I loved that Epic had taunts like that in their game.
                        Please for the love of god Epic, keep a sense of humor and your taunts.
