Gay activists insist that faggot comes from the word for the kindling beneath the feet of heretical homosexuals. Thats a lie.
But while the word faggot doesnt come from a bundle of sticks, the word fascist does.
Behold: In the name of truth, justice and the American way, a renowned science-fiction writer has just been condemned to (professional) death for expressing his views on homosexuality in a tiny Mormon magazine almost twenty-five years ago.
Orson Scott Card wrote the beloved 1985 Hugo and Nebula Award-winning novel Enders Game about the innocence of a child winning out over war and hatred, an irony which seems to be making his homophobia all the more heartbreaking to his lifelong (liberal) fans.
So what did Card say?
Back in 1990and again in 2004he objected to the legalization of sodomy and gay marriage by judicial fiat. If unelected judges can nullify thousands of years of civil and religious law in a trice, he asked, what else will our robed rulers force us to accept? Will ordinary people someday rise up against this tyrannical system?
These spindly beta males all secretly see themselves as righteous macho caped crusaders, rescuing the world whether it needs it or not.
That candid, decades-long (and, some would say, perfectly sound) opposition to gay marriage in particular and top-down social engineering in general suddenly rendered Card persona non grata when DC Comics hired him to write a Superman comic last month.......

Card’s essays on this were posted on ornery.org and may still be there. Very thoughtful and reasoned, he’s no hater.
faggot comes from the word of English meatballs
fags are the English word from cigs.
I’ve used foggots for years and fags as I;m from there ad I couldn;t careless about the turd poking PC
The definitions I have read include a bundle of sticks or twigs or a cigarette.
Card is one of my faves. Like Alan Dean foster. Smart people.
My two favorite authors are WEB Griffin and the late Robert Jordan.
Therein lies the fundamental nature of many modern problems.
You're right. His opinion essays are very reasoned. I wonder if he even considers himself a Democrat anymore.
There is an affablity or the likeness to that in Card and Foster that I relate to. Jordan is all right. But he comes off more as trying too hard. Just my thought. Also digged Jack Chalker. Not that I know anything. Stephen R. Donaldson. Boxed sets.
“I wonder if he even considers himself a Democrat anymore. “
I spoke with him a year, year and a half ago. He’s still a Democrat.
The Obama admin has released a study that being gay is a health risk .
75% of all carpet munchers are fat.
When aliens come to earth after we annihilate ourselves for a bit of archeology, there will be copies of Enders Game found as well as refrences to OSC in whatever records remain. His work is pervasive. What the will not find are any such references to the DC people/management/writers/artists of today.
I’d say OSC wins in a walk.
I've driven past here many a time. Ironic, because of fags we've lost our bearings.
How odd, I thought. Then I heard her family speaking German.
Is this the same company?
Yes it does. A fact made clear in the miltary description of bundles of sticks and brushwood to fill trenches/moats as "fascines".
Ftom this the uses was extended to a bundle of anything, such as minced meat.
However use of "faggot" ro refer to homosexualists only dates from USAian usage in the early 20th Century. Which is too late to assert a Mediæval connexion.
Faggots are also a small bunch of sticks. Just look at Wikipedia and you will see it comes from middle English - and has nothing whatsoever to do with gays. More oppression fantasties from the gay left...
A review of Cart’s essays would reveal his condemnation of legislating from the bench, not the content of the legislation.
Card has written some excellent stuff, such as Ender and the Alvin Maker series.
But then he also wrote a multi-book retelling of the Book of Mormon as SF, which unless (possibly) you are Mormon is essentially unreadable. IMO, of course.
Probably shouldn’t go around claiming to enjoy ‘smoking fags’ when you are in the states...
It’s probably the same company, Fischers Aktien-Gesellschaft. In German it’s no more unusual than a company here called Fisher, Inc., but in English ...
I'll guess the origin is the "loose end" connotation which probably began as a course joke.
Then he could form an awfully small club called the “Sane Democrat Caucus.”
WWI doughboys’ song:
“Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag, and smile, smile, smile.
“While you’ve a lucifer to light your fag, smile, boys, that’s the style.
“What’s the use of worrying, it was never worth while,
“So, pack your troubles in your old kit bag and smile, smile, smile!”
I don’t know it it’s the same company as the baseball cap, but I know I have seen the building with its big sign for decades in Joplin, MO. I think I had a relative that worked there a long time ago. I think the FAG stood for something, but I don’t know what.
LOL! You made a funny!
