Oh, my bad. Re Barney Frank?
I don’t use the word fag myself, because of negative associations from the past…and don’t much care for others using it.
But in Franks case, I *especially* don’t use it because I’m ashamed he’s a member of the LGBT Community and because there are so many, many ways to describe him in vitriolic detail with ever so much more precision. Without being forced to mention his membership in the community.
