The OWL is run by a bunch of holier-than-thou idiots who forget that 90% of their players are under 25, and at least 50% under 20.. Being PC is mostly older generation types who are out-of-touch and can't understand some humour, because god forbid that anyone should get offended.
Couldn't disagree more.
Young males have always used "shock value" as part of their inside jokes. This generation is no different from previous ones. That doesn't make it right, and eventually they too grow up and gain some perspective and realize it is not OK to poke fun at the expense of other cultures and races.
Like with everything, there are always going to be some people whoa are a little bit too sensitive on the issue, but that doesn't change the fact that it is not cool, and never acceptable to make racist or sexist jokes.
The goal is always to be inclusive and never say or do anything that can make someone feel ostracized, alienated or like an outsider, and if you don't realize this, then you just have some growing up to do.
