Temple garments[edit]

many people know the term only by magic underwear. The point of including the reference is so that those outside of LDS can make the connection bewtween LDS members saying "garments" and secular persons saying "magic/Mormon underwear" or whatever other term might be used. Magic underwear as a phrase is not sactioned by the Mormon Church, but nonetheless is a legitimate usage of English to describe something. By the logic of those who wish to take out the reference because they they do not like it, we should also emove references in Wikipedia to 'Niggers,' 'Papists,' 'gimps,' 'spastics,' 'urban format radio,' 'queers,' 'Mongoloids,' 'Mexican Jumping Beans,' 'broads,' 'dames,' 'retards,' and all pictorial depiction of Mohammed. Further, we must then remove 'The Netherlands' in favor of 'Nederland', replace 'Japan' with 'Nipon', and list Fort Collins' intentionally mispelled newspaper as 'The Coloradoan [sic]' instead of merely using the proper term 'The Coloradan.'

The fact that a limited demographic may not care for the term, does not mean the term is invalid.

I am not recommending or condoning the term 'magic underwear', merely providing those who may not know the full context with a place to learn the full background.

Absolutely not. There are probably people that only know many people or things by derogatory slang, but that doesn't justify placement in the list. Your examples are quite good: homosexual doesn't include the term "queer" in the lead, Catholic doesn't include the word "papist" as a synonym, African-American doesn't say "a.k.a. nigger". It just isn't normal to include derogatory slang synonyms as a part of the definition of an item.—Kww(talk) 05:06, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

I have moved to reference. like I said, the point is not to condone but to inform. the new placement makes the info available without legitimizing it. also, before you speak in absolutes (i.e. Absolutely not), understand that doing so reveals a lack of higher education and an inability to engage in academic discourse. not trying to insult, please understand, just trying to help you so that in the future when you attemt to make valid arguments you do so in a legitimate manner. There is nothing "absolutely" flawed in my possition, and furthermore you state "Absolutely not" but never show which part of my arguement your possition of absoluteness intends to refute.

furthuremore, Wikipedia DOES refer to 'niggers' and 'papist' . . . they have entries all their own! I do not believe 'magic underwear' should have a legitimating entry all its own, just that it should be discussed SOMEWHERE in the article so that the uninitiated may make the connection.
