Why is "Casual" an insult?

I understand why certain people are called casuals in an insulting way, such as facebook gamers or smart phone gamers, but I really think they should come up with a term other than casual. Casual just implies that you play for fun and relaxation. Honestly, with the exception of fighting games I'm technically a casual gamer if you use the actual definition of casual. I love games like Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon. I love games with good stories. I play games as an escape. Isn't that casual? It's certainly not hard core, or competitive.

I think that the "casuals" that are called so in an insulting way need a new nickname.

It implies a lack of dedication, and people who consider themselves passionate about a subject don't like hearing that they're in the lower ranks of that subject.

Yeah, what AllOfTheAbove said.
Seriously, I really ****ing doubt that any people legitimately use it / take it as an insult. It's just joking around to **** with the person's head. .

Yep.
Although psuedo-gamers do annoy me.

I say it
Everyone I've seen say it is doing it ironically
Ergo I'm under the assumption that it's just facetiousness

See, this goes back to the weaboo argument. You and your friends use it facetiously, and so you assume the rest of the population does as well. This is not the case. So some gamers, calling them casual is like calling a black guy the N word, and they will flip the **** out.

I won't flip out if you call me an N. Although being half-cast gives me an element of surprise. I may call you a casual when you least expect it.

Be warned.

Because they don't want to be called it? Some people have issues. So if they actually do like the thing to death, and they get called a casual, which implys otherwise, they get pissy. I suppose? That's all I can think of.
Give me an example of when someone actually freaked out over it, because it's completely unheard of to me

I knew a guy at my old college who was very arrogant and only played games like Skyrim & Fallout. He absolutely hated casual games/gamers, so I can imagine calling him a casual would make him angry. It isn't easy to define whether someone would be insulted. I wouldn't be insulted by the N word for example, but other people would be. Some people's feelings are just on the extreme end.
