Regarding the 'hypocrasy' of prawn:

I use queer, tranny, fag, etc. It's a concerted effort to take the word back and remove it's power as an insult by bigots.

One of those things that I'll never understand. People basically choose to be offended by something. Of course, I'm an insensitive clod, so what do I know.

Well, for me it's always been context, context, context! If someone means no harm, then they mean no harm. They're either simply curious, or unaware. Why be offended by that?

Now if it's someone beating my head with a bible and screaming things at me, well, that's another matter, but the distinction between the two is pretty easy to make out ;)
