You're really doing a very thorough job of avoiding my point here. The mods, in that statement, are declaring themselves as the ultimate arbitrators of everything that is racist, sexist, homophobic, etc. The possibility that, as I have laid out, the rules may lead to some minorities feeling less welcome here is being dismissed under the assumption that anyone objecting is obviously a bigot who should GBT4chan or wherever else you had in mind, and who's opinion can therefore be ignored.

Of course you're entitled to "one or two spaces where they're off limits". I have never argued otherwise. And yes, there are lots of places on the internet with less language policing. However, those communities are not in any meaningful way anything like s_d, and as a general rule, they don't go to such elaborate lengths to tell me they're doing it for my own good. That is what I'm objecting to.
