    Mexican fans during the team's World Cup match against Brazil. Some fans taunted the opposing goalkeeper with a traditional cheer that ends by shouting a word widely regarded as a derogatory term used against gays.

    NYT: FIFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against the Mexico team for what it has called the “improper conduct of spectators” at the World Cup.

    Mexican fans taunted the opposing goalkeepers in Mexico’s 1-0 victory over Cameroon last Friday and in Tuesday’s 0-0 tie with Brazil with a traditional cheer that ends by shouting a word widely regarded as a derogatory term used against gays.

    Different words mean different things in each country. They were screaming putos. Puto is not a gay slur.

    puto means bitch in spanish right? i know what the gay slur that starts with the f is in spanish. it begin with a m right? not gonna say it.


    Yes, 'puto' is bitch or slut in some cases. Sometimes it can even mean cute. The spanish gay slur is 'marica' or 'maricon'.

    I was raised to understand that puto was the equivalent of a male slut. Joto (pronounce Hoe toe) was the equivalent to fag or jotito for little fag.

    NYT: In addition, the Americans are not as vulnerable to thrown coins and bags of urine, which sometimes greet them in Mexico.
