Wow...in best of millennial tunes isn’t your derogatory treating of “negative, pejorative, stereotypical or violent” an actual microaggression and offense to people who enjoy living by those values.

Check your privileges!

p.s. any donkey would take an offense knowing size of what we call donkey dick

p.p.s. shitty names are
KGB (as gear/trick name)
SS (as short for Slingshot)
BOSS (name of Hugo Boss, a passionate nаzi, designer of SS and hitler youth uniforms)
Suicide leash (more frequent referral of suicide increases number of those)
Best (doesn’t represent quality of gear)

By saying North is is good, that implies that South is not as good. This is sorta racist against people from Africa and South America.

You should be ashamed of yourself..

My nickname in high school used to be woody. :o
Plus I have a Nemesis and a Spoiler. Who cares what it is called unless it is something like "Wimp".

Isn’t it cultural appropriation to call yourself Indian if you’re not?

Y’all apparently don’t know nothing about true South either. About good ‘ol boys. Not any of that racist people you brought up. God bless us all.
