I should take more care to remember that many people find the term pervert offensive. I should therefore stop to think before I use it.

For the record, I am the last person in the world to get all moralistic and judgemental about what consenting adults do in bed or anywhere else. This is incredibly obvious to me, but not everybody knows me and it's very possible I am accidentally offending people. That's bad.

If anyone catches me making this error again, please do feel free to call me on it, and thanks to the person who spotted the potential ambiguity this time.

You can call me "pervert" anytime.

Good line! Er, have a random picture of a naked woman, because there's no sensible way I can reply to this.

If you mean my response earlier today, I should be clear that I'm not offended, was just musing on the different weights that word can have.

I'm glad you're not offended, and thank you for clarifying that. I like musing on different shades of meaning too. But since the word is sometimes used "in scorn", I should be more careful. Not avoid the word altogether, but make sure my intention is clear.

To my mind, the meaning depends entirely on who says it and why.

As both a "tea-hating pervert" and a "pervert" (although it's not word I use much myself), I took no offence.

Thank you for not being offended :-) When people comment about hating tea I feel I have to use an icon which doesn't reference tea at all, and, well, I don't have so many of those.
