However, this argument is neither germane nor rewarding, so I shall be deleting the commentary exclusively regarding the argument.

Most proverbs/sayings have a different connotation than the sum of its parts. This adage is not derogatory, simply factual. It means that the less you invest, the less you should expect. Its use of the word "beggar" (or any individual word) is not intended to be applied any further than in revealing its own interpretation. The phrase is always meant to be taken as a generality, not a precise description. All this is to say that I don't find this instance offensive.

comment Checkmate in response to a check
Yes, that is an example, regardless of your view on who gets checkmated. (Note that it is not really a matter of opinion. En passant, just like any other move, is illegal when the player is checkmated. E.g. from the final position, it is Black's turn, and he captures White's King before White can capture his. See my post here.)
