Pom isn't derogatory or the name of an animal, it's a term commonly used in Australia, NZ and South Africa for British folk. We call all Brits that come here Poms and nobody seems to have a problem with it. We call New Zealanders kiwis though, which is a bird.
Yeah, I dont find the word Pom insulting. I dont even think it's a derogatory word?
But then again, i am pretty hard to insult.
P.S - I hate this guy:
There are some of the Aus team who I like, and wouldnt mind seeing getting a chance in the UFC though..
