Here's a bannage email from SIngletrackworld (mountain bike forum). The "racist" remark was over a comment I made about some men dating Asian women because they think that they are better behaved. Apparently that's racist. This time it was for replying to someone making a comment about men who like sexy lingerie being rapists. I replied that men who don't like women in lingerie might be homosexual, apparently that's homophobic.
Ahhhh this place is the best forum. Anyhow here's the email transcript with the mod. I think I'm going to go back to trolling the Guardian, these guys are boring.
I propose a forum invasion. Can we please....PLEASE have a group invasion of the OT forum over there to discuss .50 cals, trim on a slider and Spitfires Vs 109s.

So tonight your trying for homophobia or do genuinely not mean it to be? You've had warnings for 'racist' remarks and calling people monks so time for 3 days off."
ME -""Anyone who buys sexy lingerie is basically a misogynist objectifying women and is a potential rapist"
Isn't that heterophobic? Did you ban the other guy as well?
Let's find the definition of homophobia shall we. "Homophobia is a range of negative attitudes and feelings towards homosexuality and people who are identified or perceived as being homosexual."
My comment was not making a negative comment towards homosexuality, it was making a reference towards the fact that most heterosexual men find women in underwear attractive. Implying that a person who does not find women in underwear attractive may be gay is not making a derogatory comment about homosexuality. Also did you ban the people from the marriage thread for suggesting the OP's girlfriend might be a lesbian?
