Full of meaty goodness, or so my friends tell me...

I like the popular brand name "Mr Brain's faggots". It's all homely and ever so slightly repellent.

Our American visitors may find this difficult to believe, but a faggot in the UK is something meaty you put in your mouth. OK, perhaps credulity won't be stretched.

I'm sure I'm not the first: in the UK a 'fag' is common slang for a cigarette. So there I was, jet-lagged in a San Francisco bar, and exclaimed loudly to my colleague 'bugger me, the fags in here are cheap'.

See also fairy, pouffe, and eventually dyke.

isn't a "faggot" a bunch of sticks bundled by twine, sorta adopted by the italian fascist party as their symbol of oppression? just asking.

An charming association that hadn't occurred to me, that the movement of the extreme right is named after a faggot. I'm sure they'll be delighted to know. The fasces of ancient Rome, later adopted by Mussolini's crew, included an axe blade but I'm sure we can stretch the point a bit. Thank you!

You call Ff for Faggot legal, nice, behaved, polite?

Would you like to explain?

It's been my experience that people who say/write such things are uncomfortable with their bisexuality.

Would that describe you, Mark Jones?

'Faggot' is the name of a traditional English meatball (and also the name of a bunch of sticks). Recently it has also become used as a derogatory term for homosexuals, imported I believe from the USA. For that reason it is unlikely to appear nowadays on a children's alphabet, and that allows it inclusion in my politically incorrect alphabet - illustrated as a meatball, but not as a mincing queen.

I am heterosexual, I have no problems with that, it's just that I'm a man but I don't find other hairy male bodies a turn-on. I bear no prejudices against people who are homosexual or bisexual instead. I wouldn't deny that some people who use the word 'faggot' as an insult to distance themselves from gay people have worries about their own sexual identity, as is your experience.

OK?

Back to Henry Albert Sebastopol Queen Victoria Crun's suggestion: now included, a faggot as a bundle of sticks, modelled on the fasces in the armrests of Lincoln's chair in the Lincoln memorial in Washington DC, USA. The fasces is a popular symbol - it used also to be on the reverse of the US dime (complete with axe head) until they swopped it for a torch at the end of WWII.

Some people bring back games of Monopoly as souvenirs of their holidays abroad, I'm cheaper than that and bring back the local playing cards. Here's the three of clubs from a Spanish deck…
