Gay Men Respond To The Word 'Faggot' In This Incredibly Moving Video

By

How would you respond if someone used the word “faggot” around you?

Cut Video asked 30 gay men to react to the incredibly powerful and hurtful word.

While some responses did have bits of levity to them, most of the answers involved heartbreakingly negative reactions in response to the memories the word brings up.

One person interviewed talked about how hearing "faggot" was constantly hurtful. He said,

I have heard faggot a lot in my life, and... it never gets easier. Never gets easier to hear.

There are clear and terrible connotations to saying that word. If you haven’t already, you should probably strike it from your vocabulary.
