Point taken Badger. But as you know, each year Websters adds words, etc. to reflect current culture. I for one don't like the trend . But, it is what it is. Times change. And we have to change with them.

And as the poll results are showing, 2  to 1 people use it in a non-homosexual-slur way. Which is what I suspected. It's still politically incorrect, and will get you fired in the work place.

It is actually encouraging that most of the (young, straight, male) folks on this forum, where fag and faggot are utilized with impunity (despite being against the TOS), actually do not use it as an intentional slur against homosexuals.

Note I have not left the forum over the issue, I do not bring it up unless the subject is brought up for me.  I have a blue name, and enjoy most of the benefits and attributes of this forum.

My perspective is that of a 48-year old, who is definitely and without question, legit and unapologetic damaged goods on this particular topic.

It's not just Websters.

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/faggot

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/faggot

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/faggot

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faggot_%28slang%29

http://oxforddictionaries.com/us/definition/american_english/faggot

https://www.vocabulary.com/dictionary/faggot

 

I understand that you Mr. Zipplock think the word should be changed.  In fact, you obviously think the word has already changed.  I call it the "Southpark definition."  I get it.

"I use it without thinking...." is such an interesting way to describe that choice on your poll.

However, there are many other (older) generations of folks like myself that define the word the same way we have since 1914.

The same way all those reputable, current, on-line dictionaries still unanimously define the word.

The way the UFC, Nike, Budweiser and Fox all define the word.

I can only tell you that "we old farts" are still in the majority.  Old farts also control the UFC, Nike, and Fox.

Once we die off, feel free to change the meaning officially and without dispute.

 

 

EDIT:  For the record, I voted you UP.  For intelligent discussion.

 

 

I would argue that what a dictionary says really doesn't trump the argument as to the words purpose an most common usage today. Dictionaries are never up to date. Particularly when I comes to slang. Phone Post 3.0

Voted up. I haven't really used that word in a while, but when I did say it, I meant that you're a homosexual.

I used to use it indiscriminantly. Anybody who I thought was lesser of me was a girl. But I realized words like that belittle the people around me and I really started seeing all living things around me as equal. So I don't use words like fag, or bitch, or any racial slurs. We were all created equal. And living this way requires changing the way you speak.

Penetration Skills - I mean fag like you suck a dick. I think being a fag is one of the worst things you could be.

even if i don't think someone is a fag but i am pissed off at them and call them a fag. i absolutely mean that you are a dude who lets another dude crawl up your ass. period.

a guy calling you a gay/fag is an insult that you cannot just let slide.

Lol at homophobe named "Penetration Skills"

What complicates the matter is when legit homos start using the word fag with one another, more in the first sense of being an asshole. "You are such a fag".

Then it gets to be really like the n word.

Hopefully Carlos Mencia won't come out with another sketch "How faggy do you have to be to use the word fag in public?"

Because there's no penetration involved in straight sex, right? Like oh my god, you are so ignorant.
