But it /does/ have legitimate meanings for insults. I don’t see any reason against using it for insults.

But it is wrong. Do you not see that? How can you see it as be okay to use it as an insult? Just because it is in the dictionary as an insult doesn’t mean it is okay to use it as one. There are a lot of completely vulgar and socially unacceptable terms that are in the dictionary and are marked as being normal words for insults. That doesn’t mean it is okay to actually use them for insults.
