@apow i didn’t know that was a slur until pretty reccently, i’m lucky i’m not a raccoon .. .
@monorail i would never be upset for someone not knowing but people full well know what it means and still use it
@apow I maintain raccoon is the only animal name u cannot shorten to a cuter form
@cozykaffe @apow I like racc
@apowCould "roon" work, maybe?
Or possibly "rrcrrn," which isn't really a shortened form, more like it's bitcrushed, but I'm just imagining a kid excitedly pointing out a raccoon with teeth clenched: rrrcrrrrrn!
@starless @cozykaffe @apow i call them trash pandas, which isn't very sensitive either, but it's fun for now
@starlessEveryone loves a bitcrusher@cozykaffe @apow
@apow racco's modern life
@apow why is it i was able to figure out what this post was about before i opened it
@apow How was it shortened?
@Sir_Boops the latter four letters are a racial slur
@apow Huh TIL
@apow smh, very disappointed in the fandom.
@apow im still amazed this problem is a thing that even exists much less one that has existed for more than a year now
@apow there's a reason my raccoon-fox hybrid character is specifically a "raccfox" and not some other portmanteau of those two terms. 😬
@apow also don't use it for maine coon cats don't do it do n o t
@apow racc is cute and not a slur, imagine

In case you were wondering, most people shorten the word raccoon to a four letter word which is also a racist term for POC.
Yes, really. They even used it as a term for a certain set of songs.
