Why add in the description of her being straight; if she was a lesbian this wouldn't have happened?!
I had a black friend in my first year of uni who was really open and allowed me to ask questions without being offended. I asked him why it was okay for them to call each other n**** and not white people. Apparently they call each other it to desensitise the word and make it less offensive, but it is still an offensive word especially when used by white people.
Perhaps your stepmother was just making a joke and didn't intend to offend him. Your friend is childish for not talking to you like you're the one that has offended him.
I don't understand the need for including your step mom's sexual orientation. I mean I'm pretty sure gay people don't just throw the N word around. The word fabulous yes, racial slurs no.
