offensive terms thrown around here
Quote | Reply
Two that I've seen in the last few weeks: "popping cherry" and "crack pipe." Please think about original meaning of these words. I hope you'll avoid using them here.

I totally blew up on that run. Those ITU guys are really explosive though.

How in the world is Crack Pipe offensive? Not to mention it’s a term that’s been used for at least the last 12 years on here and probabaly before I started here.

Pretty sure the term has been around cycling since crack was invented. I remember hearing the term, referring to a 90* pump head adapter, back in the early '90.s

I'm still trying to figue out why it's offensive to lose one's virginity, but I accept that I may be a little less sensitive to such things than others might be.

Yeah I could in theory at least see how that could potentially be offensive.

Crack pipe could be inappropriate in some situations maybe, but offensive is hard for me to figure out.

What induced you to start this thread? I'm curious.
Mostly because you haven't given any real argument as to why these terms would be considered offensive, but also because attitudes and tone are universally more offensive than individual words. To ask us to refrain from specific, arguably, offensive words without explanation, context or discussion is a bit silly. Or did you just intend to spark a discussion?

If anybody here sees me at the Y pool, please don't use the term "marble sack", when describing my choice of swim attire.
Come to think of it, "twigs and berries" and "raisin bag" is kinda offensive, too.

Thank you in advance for your senstitivity.

It's joking about something that's associated with inner city poverty, especially among black people, the war on drugs, and addiction - very serious issues. Crack pipes are horrible things related to a lot of misery. If you've been touched by those things, and think the phrase is funny or neutral, ignore me and joke about them if you think it's appropriate. But if those are things that you would never think would affect you, then I suggest you should avoid them. Using words that are serious about "others" is something I try to avoid myself.

"Crack pipe" has always disturbed me here for the reasons above. I meant to post this kind of message the last time someone used it in the hope that people would think about it a bit more, but didn't want to be seeming to attack an individual. Then I saw the other phrase today, which is clearly vulgar in most uses, and thought to bring these up generally.

Get a grip man. This is a triathlon forum. Not the Guardian comments section.

I sent that to a friend last week (who is constantly trying to learn new British swear words to throw at me), his response was "If I still worked in an office I'd print that out and hang it on the wall so it looked like some kind of official work memo."

I hate "peanut butter" wrench too. Like I really have used the Campy tool for spreading peanut butter. I think you would burn your lip smoking out of a "Crack Pipe". Grant I think the term came out with the first deeper section rims in the early 80s.

If you've ever been incarcerated -- the Cannondale Shiv is an incredibly offensive name to give a bike.
