Nice try at redirecting, but failed. Language has a past that can be checked and understood. Let me correct that....
"ya'll are choosing to use offensive language to prove a point"
I do love the extra "you people" you threw in there ... another way of lumping ideas you disagree with into a generalized habit of other people. And if its not clear, its not so much about "me" being offended but about choosing to standup against language that harms the inclusiveness and openness of a community.
If you are actually interested in language that proves a point then I would recommend not using inherently derogatory language. But my guess is half the point is to be derogatory and tap into historically sexist terminology.
