Yea they are. I find that in english most of the insults revolve around sex, and that's one of the biggest problems these days. People's view on sex is really messed up as it is, and stuff like homophobia coded in our expressions of dismay isn't helping that. This is a really subtle one though, and even after realizing all the homophobia in this culture I oversaw it.

My replacement for "crazy" lately has been "ridiculous". And I've been trying weed out these words.

I've been personally sticking to the feces related ones. Everyone shits, and while some may like it, most people want to get rid of their shit and they just don't like to be around it in general. So I like saying that's shitty.

But I'm sure there are ways to be more creative than that...
