  •  I still use variants of the word "fag", admittedly (3+ / 0-)

    For being tired (i.e., "fagged") and sometimes for a cigarette (i.e., "fag").

    I would never call someone a "faggot", because

    1.  It's an implicit slur against folks who are gay, and

    2.  There's nothing wrong with happening to think, feel or act along the gay spectrum (i.e., I see sexuality, attraction and related alignment/expression as not necessarily so black and white in many people) - so, why imply that there is something lower-than-human or even less desirable in being at all gay?

    Hope I'm not another hetero with blind spots, here.
