FINALLY! Racist insects!!

Have I ever mentioned that you can no longer parody the Left?

The Entomological Society of America (ESA) announced in June the common names for the moth Lymantria dispar and the ant Aphaenogaster araneoides, “Gypsy moth” and “Gypsy ant,” had been removed from their Common Names of Insects and Related Organisms List.

The ESA confirmed the names had been scrapped as they contained an “ethnic slur,” and were “identified as containing a derogatory term for the Romani people.”

  1. This crap started year’s ago with fish , jewfish became Goliath grouper. Now they are working on bird names because some are named after slave owners or some bull, it was just a matter of time before they got to insects. What will they go after next?
