Origin: prob. < Gypsy

Just ran across it on someones blog, and she was being harangued for using it.  I’m sure she didn’t mean to be derogatory to a whole race, but the internet is a global community, and we need to be aware.

Don’t use it, okay?

There are a couple of other words you shouldn’t use, that I’m not even comfortable typing.  Not swear words.  I LIKE swear words even though I don’t use them in print.  Personal preference only.  But, if it’s a derogatory word for someones race, religion or a physical feature or condition, don’t use it.  Even if you don’t mean it badly, it sounds bad coming out of your mouth and it makes you look a little ugly.
