    Depends on who's saying it. Some Gay men like to use the word in a friendly way or if one of their friends does something effeminate they might say "You're so Gay" as a joke or in a teasing manner. If a Gay man called me a faggot as a joke I would laugh and think it was funny but if a straight person ever called me a faggot IDC who they are or how old they are or what their gender is or whatever... If a straight called me a faggot I would crack them in their face and knock their teeth down their throat icon_smile.gif

    Ppl think that just bc we're Gay and like dick we can't fight but NAH! If a straight calls me a faggot I'm beating the shit out of them and then my Gay faggot ass will start lip syncing to Born This Way while doing the full choreography

    fear and annoyance

    Most of the people I have heard use it are belligerent and violent. The other group are people who claim they aren't talking about gay men, yet I know the appeal of the word for them its its taboo nature which stems from its use as a slur.

    I hate people who say that faggot isn't a slur against Gay men omg a faggot was literally a stick that was used to beat Gay people to death and the word IS a slur for Gay ppl no matter what the ignorant straights say

    True about the beating stick. It also refers to a bundle of sticks that were set on fire to burn gays, which is where the term "flaming faggot" comes from.

    Little brother called me a faggot and told me to kill myself recently. Made me feel sorry for him after I got over the anger. Then I came out on fb. Nothing but support.

    Oh and I'm in Hayward for a few more weeks, and travel through San Jose to Santa Cruz every week. You deserve a beer (or beverage of your choice) and dinner. Lemme know when you're free one evening and I'll figure out a way to stop by there. icon_biggrin.gif

    That word is just as obnoxious like the N word and other slurs. Shouldn't be used in jokes, even if they were saying it just for fun. icon_cool.gif

    Not sure about faggot. But as a homosexual, I am a fag,poofter, doughnut maker and feel no shame about this. Is it meant to be a bad thing?

    I will never forget the sting of finding the word "Fagot", scrawled on our white garage in our alley.They spelled the word wrong with a thick magic marker. I was 19 at the time, and my father had just committed suicide in the very same garage, a few months earlier. With tears rolling down my eyes I quickly painted it over. It was very early in the morning, so no one saw me.I never told my mother or anyone else in my family.I wasn't even out at the time, but I am sure many people thought I might be gay. Never knew who did it,and never had another incident directed at me after that. So this word has affected me. By the way, the year was 1975.
