Sorry, that wasn't intended as mockery. Point taken.
After Nutterbuttersaurus I would accept any name.  ;D

I didn't think it was. Its hard to undo decades of harmful social norms we never thought much about, so we have to catch each other where we can.

So all sex jokes that don't involve plain vanilla missionary position are to be taken as gay bashing or kink shaming?

Nope. Not at all.
Reread the rule in question.

I'd imagine the lickalotopuss dinosaur would have been fine if it had not been specified as lesbian. Lesbians are not the only people who engage in cunnilingus.

I remember a Buck Brown cartoon in Playboy, roughly 1967, where a smiling young lady is relaxed on a blanket next to a campfire while the cowboy is "readjusting his wardrobe". The caption read "White man speak with forked tongue!"  >:D

common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

I was a dinosaur kid so I know a lot. Much of my knowledge is 40 years old, though. And I've forgotten the names of some of them.

Tyrannosaurus, triceratops, diplodocus, brachiosaurus, compsognathus, muttaburrasaurus, iguanadon, apatosaurus, pachycephalosaurus, hadrosaurus, allosaurus (my favourite dinosaur), stegasaurus, parasaurolphus, protoceratops, the other ceratopsian with lots of horns around its frill, the various honking ones with bone crests for resonance, velociraptor, utahraptor, many other small raptors, the one whose name means "egg thief", other sauropods including the titanosaurs, troodon, various other theropods...

And that's not even counting the non-dinosaurs like mosasaurus, elasmasaurus, icthyodon, pteranodon, quetzalcoatlus, that other little pterosaur with the long tail, dimetrodon, the other mammal-like reptiles of the Jurassic...

And all the rest. I could probably name many more if I could recall their names.
