Using the word "pansy"

There's no reason for you to recognize my name, but I have to get this off my chest. It pains me to hear Cohh use "pansy" as a derogative to mean a cowardly or wimpish person. For reference, he used it in Fallen Order, when the Ninth Sister appears to run away. It came up again in the Kotor 1 play-through in episodes 64 & 65 (and a third time, earlier but I forget the episode).

"Pansy" used in this derogatory context is no different than "***" or "faggot", although less incendiary than the latter. In either case, the word is implying that being *** is weak and cowardly.

Please stop using the word "pansy" like this. It hurts to hear it in a community that is otherwise so friendly and welcoming. I wasn't expecting to hear that language and it was a nasty surprise. Please reconsider this word choice. It is not Good Vibes.

Thank you for allowing me to voice my feelings on this.
