Over at JoeMyGod, Joe (via Dan Savage) has a post on Louis CK's recent FX show (Louis basically plays himself - and it's a pretty funny & disturbing show) where Louis' only gay friend schools him and the other comedians playing poker on the etymology and context of using the word "faggot". Link here. It's a pretty poignant perspective.
Caution to parents with children who have impressionable minds, and who may pick up new words like a sponge picks up dishwater- link is not appropriate for elementary school aged children whose vocabulary does not yet include bigoted, charged vocabulary.
