Wait A Second...

So I was typing a comment, and because of the wholly unfair and totally not equal rule about being anti-homosexual that this site has (yeah it's old, suck my dick, never forgive, never forget) I deleted it. Why?
Because the comment was going to contain the phrase "because I'm a big old gaywad". That is pretty obviously something the rule would be opposed to, but I wondered, what if I'm saying that about myself? My two favorite forms of humor are self disparaging humor and making gay jokes about myself. Call me insensitive all you want but I can say what I want to say about myself right?
Or does the fact that "gaywad" is inarguably an insensitive thing to call someone because it implies that being homosexual is a bad thing make me calling myself this a violation of the rule that has "zero-tolerance" (oh, the irony)?
Where do my rights end? Can I legally disparage myself even if it breaks a rule? Even though I am the subject of the jab and therefore am not hurting anyone in reality?
This is a major bit of confusion for me, and it wouldn't be an issue so late after the rule was passed except for the fact that it kept me from posting something for fear of getting banned. Anyways if someone could give me a concrete answer as to whether I'm allowed to gay-bash myself I'd appreciate it.
P.S. I'm not saying we need to abolish the rule, that time has long since passed. It just popped into my head as I was about to post and I was like, holy shit, what is the site's official stance on this?
