    And from the context of that use of "fag" I really don't see a usage intended to slur, but rather a usage intended to show the ignorance of the diarist's previous views.  The way I read it, the diarist is trying to show that he/she was biased against government services.  And part of that bias involved ignorance and stupidity.  And the diarist writes the slur in a section where s/he is trying to show how stupid s/he was about perceiving things.  I am gay too but I can accept use of the slur in this context.  It does not offend me in this "back story" context.

    That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10
