meself Fairytale of New York censored by Beeb! (171* d) RE: Fairytale of New York censored by Beeb! 17 Dec 18

People seem to be misinterpreting what I'm saying, so I guess I'm not making myself clear: I'm NOT commenting on the meaning of the song, or whether the term "faggot" is being misused or used correctly in the song - all I'm saying is that for a North American, it is unusual in the extreme to hear a woman use that loathsome term in any context, so if you do hear a woman use it, you assume that she has some particular reason for choosing it.

Some discussion of the term had developed; that's how I got onto this. I am aware, btw, that the woman in the song is meaning to insult her partner.
