I've been out as gay in the online community for several years now. One of the common questions I get when people find out I am gay is how I feel about how often gaming communities use derogatory terms such as "gay" and "fag." The general answer is that it depends on context.
Words can be powerful things, but they are just expressions of intent by the person who said or typed them. I feel that a lot of times when people say "gay" or "fag"...
