    Vulgar people have desecrated the initial meanings of several words

    "retard" included. You can't say anything can you.

    Well I won't be complying to that saccharine silliness. If I call someone a ****** I better be ready to deal with the repercussions, yes, but if I say the word or anyone says the word not even meaning what it now seems to mean (gay) then people are all :gasp: for no reason.

    Do you consider ******/fag to be a swear word (when used in the context of "you're a fag")?
    No, but it is slang and would probably be seen as offensive.

    It's an offensive slur, much like ******* or retard, but it's not a swear word - just grossly offensive and, in the way used in your example, homophobic.

    to be fair I dont look down at the femal vagina looks like a bunch of ham slices moulded together. Though I have never found a man attractive n struggle to see how women even find men attractive. if I was a woman I'd defo be a lez. though being gay doesn't make you fabulous thats why me n gays dont get on they all think they arent even human they think they are sex machines and straight people are weird and not with it.

    I'd say it's not a swear word but it's incredibly offensive 99% of the time it's used.

    :giggle: But I thought you didn't ride a Harley..

    I did only say the fabulous part to annoy you... I don't act like I am and I don't think I give off vibes I do either since most people I meet assume I'm straight which is somewhat annoying.

    Something doesn't have to be a swear word to be obscenely offensive.

    ****** isn't a swear word.

    Calling someone a ****** because they're gay is more offensive than saying 'F*** YOU'

    No it isn't a swear word, but it is quite rude as far as I am concerned.
