I'm going to remove the Holy Homophobe subgroup, not only as a cop-out because it's causing unforeseen problems, but also because I've come to see "homophobia" as it's widely applied today to be a belligerent, propagandistic buzzword reminiscent of Newspeak.

 

"Homophobia" was coined in 1965 by George Weinberg within the clinical context of an actual phobia, an extreme and irrational fear classified as a sub-type of anxiety disorder. If such a condition does exist, using "homophobe" in a derogatory manner would afford the same courtesy as using "retarded" in a derogatory manner. It is in fact diagnosable in 2017, albeit rarely.

I wouldn't mind being part of a "Rowdy Retards" subgroup, though.
