Didn't south park establish that just because someone is a faggot, that doesn't mean (s)he is gay?

The part where they make so many straight men look like absolute slobs?

I wouldn't know, I don't watch South Park.

You should. It's social commentary of a high degree. The Cartman burgers were ... delicious.

Meh, I've seen it, the humor is a little too broad for my tastes.

So is Cartman's butt.

The meme didn't mention being gay.   It mentioned being a faggot.  I'm using it in the British sense here.

It's still derogatory and sexist.  But at least it doesn't attack the OP's sexual orientation.

I can't say that was clear, in any case.

British vulgarity is weird; I still don't get how a man is a 'cunt'.

Just know that if he's asking for a fag he can put in his mouth, it's not what you think.

I don't really know how the term 'faggot' became equated with homosexuality.  But a fag can be a cigarette.  And they are also a type of construction bolt. 
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

Faggot is also a stick used for building a campfire.

I suspect the term originates from "faggot-carriers" meaning old women carrying fallen branches for fires.  The connection to womanly males would make some sense there. 

But it is a prejorative with no modern meaning and no value in modern society.

It's not weird!  You can craft some of the most beautiful insults in the English language with British vulgarity.

In conclusion, every other culture in the world is wrong except mine.
