    Do you consider ******/fag to be a swear word (when used in the context of "you're a fag")?

    It isn't a swear word, but it's quite insulting. I know for a fact I wouldn't want someone to call me an annoying, inconsiderate harley rider. I also do not own, or regularly ride a harley.

    I use it in a non-offensive way to my friends.

    I do not mean to use it as an insult to homosexual people at all. I use it because it rolls off the tongue nicely.

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

    a ****** is a bundle of sticks used for kindling isn't it?

    And the slang term means gay right? So... is calling someone gay (when they're not) a swear word? Because I would only actually say that the C, F, S and (possibly) the B and lesser C words count as 'swears'.

    No, however, it's a derogatory, homophobic, term.

    Fagot is a bundle of sticks bound together, however, ****** is a homophobic derogatory term.

    Not a swear word as such but highly offensive. I would put it on par with the N word and the P word.

    No, not really. Or you wouldn't see the word in the chilled section of your local supermarket

    I don't think it's a swear word, just pretty offensive if used in a certain context.
