We don't call things 'gay' that we dont like in my house, SO is bad about this though. It's a pet peeve of mine to hear people call someone gay as an insult or call an object or situation they don't like gay. Also fag or f****t to me is a very disgusting word, and I hate when people use it.



And weirdly enough, I can't stand the word gorgeous.



And god save the person who calls me 'missy'. My mom use to call me little missy when I was in trouble and now it invokes a rage in me like no other.

You do know the original meaning of Fag or f****t means stick tho right?



Its evolved into a slang word over time, but the same as gay means happy.



Its all in how you precieve it, IMO. lol

Yeah I'm aware they have other meanings, but nowadays when they are spoken its not in reference to a stick or being happy or a cigarette or whatever else they meant before.



I don't like their meanings now, so they aren't spoken in my house.

No words are off limits as in no one can say them. But the kids are not allowed to cuss or call names. Especially calling people fat or saying they're too skinny.
