First off let me say I have absolutely NO problem at all with gays people. I treat them the same as anyone else and I have a gay relative who I am cool with and would even say a gay friend or two.

That being said, I have had this debate many times and I don't believe the way the word Faggot is as bad. I have never used it towards an actual Gay person, and it seems like it's just every day slang nowadays. Not that thatsd okay or anything. I just feel like when Gay people hear Faggot they automatically assume it's hate towards gays. That one South Park episode is a perfect example of how it is used today.


Thoughts?

Nowadays with the big fuss that gays make over people saying Faggot, it might as well be just as bad. Any time a Celeb says Faggotk the whole Gay Army gets on their back(no pun intended). I say Faggot all the time though ut I'm not directing it at gays. I'm black but I rarely say "nigguh" or any variant of it.

this. them gays be too sensitive.. who the fuck even uses "faggot" and "gay" as their literal meanings these days? gay has become a word now for dumb, lame, etc.. same with faggot. I joke around with it all the time, I never actually mean you "homosexual"... I didn't even realize so many people cared until recently so I was tryna cut back in front of public and ppl I don't know well

niga in the context of friendship is not bad.

Faggot is always negative.

However nig ger with a pronounced R with a racist intention is much worse than faggot. Like 9/10 when someone says faggot they're not even referring to gayness. They're referring to a dude being a friggin faggot. Ni gger has a history that's much uglier than anything gays have had to endure. So it's all about context.

And I leave you with this.

♥♥♥♥♥ is a term of endearment now, faggot isnt. Call someone a faggot doesn't have that much bite though, but its always used in a negative way. Therefore, calling someone a faggot is worse

Faggot is still used to be hurtful. Nigguh has just become a slang word that even pinoys are using to refer to one another.

If you were comparing Faggot to ♥♥♥♥♥♥, that would be a completely different story, because obviously the N-word carries so much more weight behind it given its history.

About the same. When a faggot or a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ pisses me off, I usually lace in some other insults such as worthless, subhuman etc to make the slur more virulent and hurtful.

♥♥♥♥♥s is fine if ur real ♥♥♥♥♥s are fine with it, if ur not a real ♥♥♥♥♥ just don't slip it out when ur around other real ♥♥♥♥♥s. but naw personally thier is two meaning I m pretty sure gay people even say "thats gay" or "your a fagot" as in your a lame,annoying,stupid,e.t.c.. so fagot and gay is fine around the gays just make sure htye know ur chill with the gayness (no homo) cool

When I hear another race besides black people say ♥♥♥♥♥ it rubs me wrong but saying faggot is cool. Fags weren't slaves last time I checked.

word I've heard the same (cheep). I think the word "fag" has lost a lot of meaning, because guys call their friends fags all the time. Like if you're joking around or whatever and say "man you're such a fag" it doesn't mean much. You don't really think about what it means. If you swapped that out with the nbomb though, it'd probably sound way more serious.

have any of you thought why the words gay and faggot became synonymous with weird or stupid? the only reason these words have a negative connotation is because being gay or a faggot were bad things to be.

its like if slave owners back in the day went around pointing at some shit like their wagon's wheel falling off and saying "aw shit this shit is so ♥♥♥♥♥♥."

you're using a word that deeply insults a group of ppl as a word that describes unwanted situations. thats a little fucked up.

I think the real question is why did gay, meaning homosexual, become synonymous with stupid. that's kinda off and says a lot imo.

Also faggot can be a pretty violent word, from what i think. I'm not sure if this is where the word is derived from, but faggot (fagot) is another word for bundle of sticks, gays would be burned at the stake for being openly gay. idk, correct me if i'm wrong.
