Term described as gay slur removed from congressman's campaign site
SAN DIEGO Rep. Scott Peters campaign staff issued an apology Tuesday for a post on his website that included whats been characterized as a gay slur against Carl DeMaio, who is challenging Peters in the June 3 primary to represent San Diegos 52nd Congressional District.
The post on the freshman Democrats campaign site referred to DeMaio, a gay Republican, as a Mary. The Online Slang Dictionary says the term refers to a male who behaves like a stereotypical little girl when hurt.
When campaign staffers were told the post contained a term offensive to the LGBT community, they quickly removed it Tuesday afternoon and posted a five-sentence apology in its place, campaign manager MaryAnne Pintar said.

That’s a “gay” slur meaning homosexuals act like “little girts”?
What a bunch of pussies.
BTW, when did "Mary" become an anti-Gay slur? I've heard of "Nancy-boy," but "Mary" is new to me.
They are homos. Before long, “Is” and “The” will be offensive if it forwards the agenda. No one pushes back so why not? In time it too shall come to pass.
GOPe candidate is liberal homosexual.
Which means he’ll have plenty of backing from the McCain caucus. Impact in 3...2...1
The term “Mary” as gay slang goes back a long time and is quite well known in Southern California so the Peter’s campaign really has no defense on this. There is a gay friendly restaurant chain which uses Mary in its name and they use to have a restuarant in San Diego.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hamburger Mary’s is a gay-themed and LGBT-friendly burger restaurant chain that started in San Francisco, California, in 1972. Their motto is: “an open-air bar and grill for open-minded people”, and the eateries are often in “gay-centric” neighborhoods. . . and the Mary in the name is a reference to the slang descriptor “Mary” used for gay men as far back as the early 1900s.
They’ve had backing from the NRCC from the get-go.
Here’s the “Young Guns” page of the NRCC.
Could be worse. Could have called him Lucy...
