The definitive list of banned words at Liverpool

all of which Suarez has used in the last two years

quote:

Liverpool have issued members of staff with a list of "unacceptable" words and phrases in their efforts to combat all forms of discrimination at Anfield.

The guide, part of a wider education programme run by the club, details terms that employees should deem offensive under the headings of race/religion, sexual orientation, gender and disability. Most are self-explanatory and the guide advises that it is "important to understand the context of what's being said", as in the use, under gender for example, of "princess" or "don't be a woman" on the Anfield terraces next season. Liverpool's list of what is "usually offensive and the club considers unacceptable" has been given to all full-time and casual members of staff who have contact with the public on matchdays or on a daily basis.

The club were widely criticised for their support of Luis Suárez when the striker was found guilty in December 2011 of having used racially abusive language towards Patrice Evra but view their education programme as one of several proactive measures taken to combat discrimination.

re: The definitive list of banned words at Liverpool
I honestly don't know 4 of the race/religion terms.

Yid
Pikey
Wog
Nip

Guess I'll have to add them to my vocabulary.

And frankly, bad words in a British accent always sound so much more awesome.

One question for those in the know -

Does the Disability term Downy refer to Downing and his play?

The ones that seem a bit sensitive:
coloured (NAACP not allowed?)
Lady-boy (anti-Thai)
That's gay/You're gay (who doesn't say this from time to time, not in an offensive way to homosexuals, but just because sometimes things are just really gay)
Fairy (please. We grass fairies are a proud bunch)
Rent-boy (wtf does this even mean?)
All of the Gender ones
All of the disability ones except Downy (quilted picker upper). But seriously, why is saying "handicapped" a bad thing?

Yid is probably for Jews, like "yiddish"
Not sure on pikey or wog.
And nip has at least been around since WWII for Japanese people.

ETA: after looking it up.

Pikey = travelers (like gypsys)
Wog =

It can be applied to any darker-skinned people, but is used generally to refer to peoples of the East Indies and India, as well as immigrants or migrant workers from the Middle-East and the Mediterranean.

I don't really get Nip being "bad" ... the Japanese name for their country is Nippon, their people are Nipponese, and Nip is obviously a truncated version of those words. "Japan" is a bastardized translation from the Chinese pronunciation, anyway. Nip should probably be the equivalent of Yank (short for Yankee, obviously).

But who knows.
