Censors
 
I have a question: why is "qu33r" censored? I can't find many contemporary examples of it being used as a pejorative now and as someone who does identify as qu33r, I find that it rather empowers people in the community. It's used as a blanket term for those within the community, instead of something derogatory against homosexuals/lesbians/trans individuals. I guess it's nothing major, but it just weirded me out when I used the word in a post and saw asterisks in its place. Maybe this could be taken off the filter list?

Also, I request that "dyke" and "tranny" be added to the word filter list as those are slurs typically used in a derogatory (and misogynistic) fashion. Thanks for reading this suggestion.
