Dear all , I have recieved some communication, that certain terms in popular use on Arrse, may be interpreted as racist , and at odds with what British Forces represent to the world. Words such as Raghead, Boxhead, Septic, Spam, Sheepshagger etc etc. Now before we get into the "Oh my god, Arrse has fallen to the PC brigade", give it some thought. Yes I know we all use them, but it doesn't mean it's right or proper. Anyway , what is "acceptable" and what isn't? There are of course certain words or phrases that are obvious, but are there names or phrases which we should stop using here, even though we might regard them as simply terms of reference, with no malice intended? >> Out to you.
