Derogatory terms used as insults towards marginalised groups of people. Many slurs have been commonly used in the past but are now seen as socially unacceptable. Communities sometimes "reclaim" slurs by adopting them into their vocabulary and changing their meaning e.g. "Queer" was a popular slur in the past but is now a well-established term for people whose identities fall under the LGBTQ+ umbrella.
