Thank you!

That's a weird term. I think I have heard it before but I wasn't really familiar with it. I would've thought that it would moreso refer to women but it seems like the opposite may be true. Some of those definitions are offensive in themselves though. They seem almost intentionally provocative. It's a weird one for me because the use of the word "jungle" is so apparently offensive and brings up all kinds of negative connotations but the word "bunny" seems so innocuous. It's like an oxymoron.

Exactly, but I'm sure to him "outta" and incorrect subject-verb agreements are perfectly acceptable (even in a letter of complaint) because he's white (well, I assume that "he" is "white")
