    Default cursing and bad language

    Are there any rules preventing users from using curse words in their posts?

    Are you allowed to use what some may feel are derogatory terms for women such as "Babe"," Broad" or "Bimbo" to describe a female character?

    "Bimbo" and "broad" as descriptions of women are derogatory, there's no wriggle room there. No one would be excused from judgment just because they'd be using them to describe fictional women.

    In the right context and without going overboard, I think "babe" is all right.

    End of the day, if you've got even an inkling that what you want to say might be a derogatory term for someone's gender, identification, race, etc... err on the side of caution and just don't say it.
