    Being called gammon does seem to rattle their cages. I guess they're pizzed at having a comeback for all that snowflakery jibing.

    Quite amusing that Nausey would use a word like gammon. Runs the risk of upsetting his friends in The Religion Of Peace.

    Quite amusing that gammon RACoff still can't find the will to tell the truth.

    I prefer Backgammon. It goes well with friends and a beer or two.

    I'm not really up with Internet language but I gather that "gammon" is a insulting term for white people.

    Am I right?

    If so, how is it allowed when if we said insulting things about other-coloured people we would be denounced and censored?

    The word gammon doesn't bother me. I like a good insult when it's amusing - but gammon isn't that funny; the French were better at it, calling us "Rosbifs".

    But it is hypocrisy.

    Or, is it that, as Jo Brand said: "You can't be racist to a white person" ?

    Allowed? How do you mean? In the same way describing black people by reference to the word 'chocolate' is allowed?

    If a fat white middle aged male is so incensed that he looks like gammon then surely it is a simile?

    Oh it is. Especially the reactions we get on GD. I think it is hilarious.

    No, that isn't allowed; but making fun of the colour of a white person's skin seems to be!

    It doesn't refer only to white people. The gammons, are usually white, but not exclusively.

    "Rosebifs' would be considered a pejorative term for English people, if you really wanted to be offended by it.
    And you do seem easily offended, even offended by terms that aren't racially/ethnically/nationally/culturally or religion-wise offensive, such as 'gammon', although it is a political jibe, as is 'snowflake'.

    Incidentally, make no mistake, I do not like, appreciate or in any way think that demonising people because of their political beliefs is acceptable.
    Prejudice based on race/ethnicity/culture/religion or nationality is not, IMO, a prejudice based on a political belief. It is pure bigotry based on the person's ideology, that other ethnicities, nationalities, etc are in some way inferior or to blame for socio-economic problems.
