    But. . . .I think you're missing out, my-fairy-in-crime, that we hijacked the word 'gay' so as to disguise ourselves as innocent, happy law-abiding citizens in order to cover up our plan for world domination

    I don't think you gays should be allowed to refer to us heteros as normals. It just sounds offensive coming from you.

    The term under pejorative use is really not meant to be derogatory towards homosexuals, it has been used as a slang term for 'lame' among youth since the seventies, much like the terms "bad" or "stupid" meant good in the eighties and nineties. The word is really becoming obsolete in reference to happiness. If used, homosexuals are still commonly thought to be the reference. Nevertheless I still try to refrain from using it in a phrase as it still sounds juvenile and could be offensive.

    Now, now if I wanted to be derogatory I would have called heteros breeders. To emphasize how the heterosexual "lifestyle" harms me by limiting my access to food and jobs by creating more human beings.

    Two years on and I still don''t undersatnd why sexuality is offensive. Or why idiots are afraid of gay people. It all makes no sense at all.
    But on the use of words got curious as to teh word Faggot. Well actually its the link to fag as in cigereete I was wondering about but here are a few facts that you might have not know:
    1) It actually measn a bundle of sticks.
    2) in medieval times it was linked to the burning of hertics and witches. If they renounced they had to wear a faggot symbol to show that they weren't really 'good' people.
    3) It was once an offensive word refering to women ( back in the 16th centurey)

    And lastly its just an ugly ugly word it looks ugly it sounds ugly people shouldn't use it.
