“Neckbeard” isn’t a slur because it isn’t used against an oppressed group.

No one said it was a slur. The point was that the term itself shames all people with neckbeards. There are plenty of other terms that could be used to convey the same thing that don’t shame someone for something about their body that they may not be able to do anything about. Something should not have to be a slur for you to consider not saying it.
