If You Use Any Of These 4 Words Online, Your Name Will Turn Up On This Tracking Website

I'm supposed to be a super-tough journalist, but there are some bigoted words I just can't say or type, not even for an Upworthy story. Luckily, No Homophobes is a new website keeping track of four homophobic references and how often they're tweeted around the world.
