Thanks to Florida's Parental Rights in Education Act, a new hubbub has begun in furry circles about a specific word that starts with G and rhymes with "boomer." It's been deemed a slur against the LGBT community and likewise banned on Reddit and Twitter. Even a certain activist organization with the word in their name has been banned on Twitter 4 times because of it.

What is it? And should it be considered a slur? Lifty and Tex discuss the behavior behind that peculiar G-word, and why it's counterproductive to continue to think it's a slur.
