    Thumbs up Re: does this translation have racist or derogatory cultural references?

    No, but if you want to use a more broadly used term in Spanish it would be "honda".

    I'm from Argentina and I've never called it "Honda"..I call it "Gomera", but I do agree that Honda would be more of a neutral spanish term! (Tirachinas has kind of a sexual meaning here..)

    Yes, yerlem, here in Venezuela if they say honda, no one would understand either.

    Ultimately, as a translator you need to cater to your audience.

    Oooops Cotty! Sorry but I was away for a few days. Down there "tirar" means to go scre.... all the "chinitas" (paisanas locales).
