My opinion on this is that, in general, if a significant number of
people are offended by a term, to knowingly use it and risk offending
them should be taken as uncivility.
It's not clear to me that this is what happened here. You weren't
deliberately uncivil as far as I can see.
The fact I do not find it uncivil does not make me a hypocrite.
I will be more careful using it in the future though.
Well, that's a very Wikipedian way to take it. Thanks.
