I only mentioned the APA because that was the source I found that called for putting slang and jargon into quotation marks, a rule I had not previously encountered. The APA also indicates that a word is slang if it is a new invention and not to be found in the dictionary, hence my citation of the Oxford entry.

Truly, I appreciate that SallyFX posted the link, and had not expected that we would all fall down this rabbithole. I only brought up the quote marks initially because their usage potentially suggested that the "Miss Saigon" event wasn't yellowface, when it was.
