Seriously, does this bug anyone else? Because my grandpa has been calling me a fag (which is really stupid because as far as he knows I am straight) everyday for the last week and it's really starting to bug me. Maybe it shouldn't bug me but it's getting to a point where every time he calls me a fag i just want to walk out of the room because between him and my cousin and aunt make lesbian jokes about me all weekend, i am just having a shit week.
Sorry... this kinda turned into a rant -.- hahaha

My grandparent's call every gay person a fag, and it bothers me so much. They're so mean about it.

My grandparents can't speak English, but if they called me a "fag", I'd probably slap them in the face. I don't see how people can take stuff like this from family members. And just because they're old and conservative and set in their ways is not an excuse. Not at all.

Maybe it's because I've never been insulted like that by a member of my family, but I don't know. They'd definitely be hearing about it from me; I wouldn't just take it.

Being called something like that by a stranger or even a friend is bad enough, but a parent or grandparent? Come on.

That's too bad that your family accepts that. Do your parents know that he says stuff like that and do they care?

Wow. People can be so prejudice.
I hate that people say stuff implying being gay is a bad thing.

Which is what fag, saying "that's so gay", etc is basically saying and it drives me nuts

And yeah, it is really annoying

Literally everyone in our middle school uses the word "faggot" as an insult to anyone.
I've been called fag numerous times.. And the fact that they have the ignorance to even do so is sad.
It's just very irritating. It hurts, too.

it's a cultural thing.
you may slap someone for calling you a fag, i wouldn't because i live in a different culture,
(even so if i was called anything with malicious intent, i would bounce them around the room for it.)
but over here, to me, i find just as much offense from the word gay in anything other than a factual context, and poof, but it's cultural,
over here to me, a fag is a cigarette.
i mean,, hell, my granddad died because he was constantly smoking his fags.
(and by definition in the english dictionary it's a pork meatball too, which i thought was a bit funny)
it will be alright in the end, and if it's not alright, it's not the end yet.
