Look, i'm about as PC as they come. Left wing, environmentalist, feminist. (Yes i know this is El Reg, yes i know I'm painting a target on my back)

This is nonsense. How many people nowadays know the word gimp? If it was called "FAG" (Free Advanced Graphical tool) or "NAZI" (..........I can't come up with an acronym, feel free to start a competition below!) then I could understand it. Even i get sick of people's touchiness.
