Sh*m*le and tr*nny are both incredibly offensive slurs directed at trans people (and sh*m*le in particular is very transmisogynistic, which means it's directed at trans women who already face a great amount of hate). Trans people are the most at risk portion of the LGBT+ community, so their safety is of the utmost importance. I know you understand how hurtful slurs can be, so I urge you to remove these two. G*psy is an ethnic or racial slur for the Romani people. You have respectfully disallowed many other racial slurs, so I urge you to do the same for g*psy. It is an especially harmful word because many people don't even realize that the Romani exist, nor do they realize that g*psy is a slur.

The personalization policy, as found here: http://help-en-us.nike.com/app/answers/detail/article/personal-id-guidelines/a_id/1443/p/3897 states: "

An iD may be declined if it contains any of the following:

 

  • Insulting or discriminatory content"

The terms listed clearly fall under the above listed category of insulting or discriminatory contet. Please add these words to the list of words not allowed under your personalization policy.
