    Homosexuality: It's not just for sissies anymore!
    When I'm hanging out with my gay brother we rarely use the word "Homosexual" - It's always "This fag...." or "Some Homo....","That Queer...." - then there are our own personal faves like "He's a Packer!" or "What a Penis Smoker!".
    How do you use these words? Is there a difference, for example between a fag and a queer? Personal favorites?
    Is it funny? A bad habit? Dangerous?

    Wow! I seriously need to broaden my vocabulary. All I pretty much say is "this gay guy" and if I'm pissed off maybe "cocksucker". I'm lame, I'll admit it.

    The word 'Homosexual' is a bit of a mouthful, and only seems to be used by politicians and religious people.

    Mostly me and my friends use the word 'Gay'. 'Queer' is something you might use if you're political, but has bad connotations for a lot of older Gay men in the UK, so won't be used. 'Fag' is hardly ever used as it's British slang for cigarette and can lead to confusion.

    Jokingly between ourselves we'll call each other 'Silly queens' or 'stupid mares'...and the word 'Bitch' gets used a lot for some reason.

    Language is strange and wonderful, and it's interesting to learn what other people use to describe themselves and their Gay friend.

    Saying Faggot,Faggit,Fagget,Fag , However you want to spell it.

    will make me either:
    A.Punch you in your face
    B.Punch you in your face
    C.Punch you in your face
    D.or If you're lucky I'll do something non-violent

    (I usually pick D most of the time)

    There is just something about that word that makes me sooo angry beyond belief and I rarely blow up or get violent.


    I'm okay with all the other derogatory remarks and names though, just saying Faggot,Faggit,Fagget,Fag can be dangerous around me.

    The one I usually say the most is Fruit loop, "Goodness look at that damn fruit loop!!" nothing that bad lol

    I don't see the word "queer" as being such an insult... antiquated, perhaps, but not an insult.

    How do you use these words? I have respect for myself and others. I never use those stupid words. Is there a difference, for example between a fag and a queer? Ask Pattison. Personally I think an insult is an insult no matter what word you use. Personal favorites? I don't like insults, so I don't have a personal favorite icon_rolleyes.gif
    Is it funny? No, it's sad. A bad habit? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm........................I would say stupid more-so than a bad habit. Dangerous? Absolutely. Keep at it and one day you will more than likely get a broken jaw.

    My label of choice has always been "queer." Hate the term gay but use it because it's now coin of the realm. Gay was an adjective that meant carefree or light hearted. But applied to us it seems to demean us as frivolous, superficial, or childish. Queer, on the other hand, (especially in British usage) means, unusual, odd, unexpected, or just different from the norm. But queer is like the N word among African Americans. We can use queer, but from straight mouths it sounds offensive.

    Haha, I've been told I use the term "queen" as an insult.

    Like:

    Some "queens" in here need to learn to not take stuff so seriously. The fact that we use the word "fag" "homo" "queer" on each other is a way that we took BACK the terms others used to (and still do) use against us, in order to shatter the hatred behind them. We do it in jest.

    Like black people calling other black people niggas.

    I call myself gay and the men I know as gay. Closet case I use, but infrequently. I certainly get mad at particular gay men, but am more likely to use generic terms such as "asshole" or "jerk."

    Southerners have always been known for having descriptive language, i.e., "give me some sugar", "opinions are like assholes...some are just louder and smellier than others", "somebody got beat with the ugly stick", etc...is always entertaining for us Northerners to hear when we come for a visit. And by the way, OP, must be nice having gay siblings...and admitting you like to smoke...wow, you are a social pariah, I like your balls...

    The word "gay" never much appealled to me. I've always preferred "fudge-packer"...so much more descriptive, and sort of tasty-sounding...

    Ooops, correction, when you said you like a "good fag" after dinner, I thought you meant..... icon_redface.gif

    My best friend's most affectionate nickname for me is 'faggy little ass bandit.' I call him my 'fruit-picking Mexi-Guata-Costa-Rican.' Neither would be appropriate for (or in the company of) random strangers, but between us, it's our way of playfully dismembering stereotypes. People who get all worked up over language (rather than the context of its use), in my small opinion, are just being uptight little fags. How gay.

    Along the sames lines, I hate it when people call someone a 'homosexual' because it's such a clinical, PC term that I often suspect the person using it is too uptight and ballsy to say 'gay.' Call me a 'homosexical,' though, and I'll fucking bust up laughing and call you my new best friend.

    wow, the older gents here have quite a developed system of imaginative synonyms lol.

    what's wrong with just "gay?" that's all i ever use or hear used by my peers. sometimes "faggot" if someone is being hateful. that's about it..

    I generally don't use homosexual euphemisms as insults or to describe something I don't like or think is stupid.

    How can you make a gay man scream twice? Fuck him real hard. Then wipe your dick off on his curtains.

    lmao... I just say some "gay guy" but if I get pissed I go off like a draq queen and EVERYTHING under the roof files. Usually, it happens in spanish and in which case "Jota" is my choice word over "Joto" because usually someone is being a bitch in which case I think "Jota" is more appropriate.

    Rarely gay ass (super) power-bottom (bitch) for anyone being a super cunt.

    I don't like any guys using faggot around me, especially directed to me or my friend. Told a guy at studio I didn't like that nonsense the other day. Thought he was being cute/cool/funny.

    Not to judge, but I don't like to be called homo, queen, fag, girl, etc. So, I don't use those terms. Just call me by my name and that's what I'll call you. Some people call me "bubba" but that is a rural texas thing. Don't really mind that one.
