Reminds me of a habit my partner has, which I attribute to his older generation. Last Saturday evening we had a lesbian couple over for dinner at our place. And he was regaling them with stories of his youth in Boston, when he had many lesbian friends.
(Still does, and some of them stay at our place when they visit South Florida. And during our last visit to Boston we went to dinner with 6 of them, a lovely "reunion" for him)
So anyway, he kept saying things like "... and then my butch and me went to this bar..." and "...this guy was giving me a hard time, until my butch came over and scared him away."
I could see our guests squirming a little at this, and in the kitchen I told him to drop the "my butch" references, sounding like he had a lesbian pit bull for a pet. This couple is just approaching 50, a different generation, not sure they like being labeled in that manner.
It's not the first time he's said things like that to lesbians that raised eyebrows, but I can't get him to change his ways. Because he's been doing it for so long and means no harm he assumes no one can be insulted by his words. Although he certainly provides an interesting glimpse into what the gay world was like 50 years ago, I just wish he'd stop it today.
I'm sure he also calls African-Americans "the coloreds" as well.
