The Word Fag is More Than a Playground Insult
Fucking is a common term used to describe a sexual act that involves the manual or mechanical stimulation of the genital organs for sexual stimulation, reproduction, or the passing through of semen from the male to the female of the species. This is called male sexual penetration or male sex. Fucking can be performed by any man, and in general it involves very little skill on the part of either participant. When a man penetrates his partner he is typically using his penis to stimulate her, and may also use his fingers or some other sex toy. Some women prefer men who use their fingers during their sexual intercourse, because this technique allows the woman to have more control over the penetration.
Some scholars argue that the modern usage of the word ” fucked” to describe sexual intercourse comes from the actions of a group of gay men called cocksuckers. The contemporary usage of the word ” fuck” has to do with a desire to escape from the traditional aspects of Western civilization, and it is a replacement for words like sodomy, gay, bum,arse, hankie, and the like, which are associated with the practice of anal sex (which is, of course, not technically included in the definitions of the English-language word “penis”). Many linguists believe that the earliest origins of the modern usage of “fuck” are to do with the dissatisfaction some people had with the way “bisexuality” was understood in the old west. One of the problems people had was understanding that being bisexual could mean having sex with people of both genders. Thus, they found it necessary to redefine the word “bisexual” to exclude these people, so that it would more closely fit into the societal conception of what a “bisexual” person was supposed to be. In order to make their situation better, these people began to use the word “fucking” to describe their behavior.
This English-language word ” Fuck” doesn’t have a very clear background, beyond the fact that it is clearly a form of address used by a group of people. This does not necessarily mean that the use of “fucking” is an historical accident, however. The history of the word ” Fuck” in particular, shows a remarkable parallel with the history of the verb “to love.” In the early days of English, the verb “to love” had the root “ford,” while the noun “affection” had the root “kinder.” The verb “to love” became associated with “affection,” while “to rank with” became associated with “quality.” The shift in meaning produced a certain amount of confusion, as those who were in love could never rank with those who weren’t, and vice versa.
So ” fuck” was a shortened version of the English word “affection,” and “ucking” was added to “to rank with” to create the modern usage we know today. Another parallel between the evolution of “ucking” and the evolution of “ucking out” is language expansion. People who can rank with other people in a given situation tend to adopt that behavior when they are in situations where they might be vulnerable to aggression or ridicule from others: for instance, a group of schoolchildren engaged in a friendly game of kick-the-ball which they are all supposed to play together. When they are targeted for their behavior and called fags by their classmates, they feel a sense of helplessness which causes them to intensify their aggressive behavior to get a reaction which they cannot reasonably expect from people who don’t consider themselves their enemies.
However, “ucking” did not stay relegated to playground pranks for long. In fact, the very same aggressive behavior which makes people feel threatened has been found in rap songs, poetry, comics, and even popular literature! The word “fag” is the most common word used to describe sexual aggressiveness, and the most common place you will find someone using the word “fag” is on a dating site, a casual conversation, or while making a casual suggestion to a romantic partner. The fact that “fag” is so commonly used to describe sexual aggression points to its deep social meaning; and the fact that those who use the word often have little respect for people who are lesbian, gay, or have a non-conformity with traditional gender roles (which can make men feel more powerful and confident when trying to seduce women – especially women who identify as women, if they are not already comfortable with being penetrated by a man). If you would like to teach your child to speak proper English, do not use the word “fag” as an insult – use it to politely correct someone who is using it as an insult.
