I see what you're saying about Urban Dictionary.

Regardless of the article, you said:

It is one of the last socially-acceptable manifestations of hate language (and, I agree with her assessment that it is hate language) still in use.

I wonder how true that is. It probably depends on what you consider "socially acceptable," I suppose. I still hear "gay" used fairly often as a derogatory word. I hear stand up comedians use "faggot," and just about as many racist words you can think of...

(This isn't meant to refute your point by any means, it's more a curiosity on my part)
