Well one of their players decided to get up in my face and he started calling me a faggot. The second time when he came and said it that’s when I decided enough was enough and so I went over to the ref and asked him: Hey, I’d just like to let you know that that kid is saying this derogatory comment and he said, I’ll take care of it for you. But he did come up to me one more time. He started to mouth something like he was going to say it and before he could say anything, I just shouted: Go ahead! Say what you’re about to say! So hopefully the ref would see that there’s an argument going on and he would possibly catch it. Calling me that just kind of fueled my fire and made me go out there… you know, make better passes shoot harder, and hit even harder. This faggot beat them 4 – 3. My name is Voight Demeester and and I’m a senior at Penn State and I’m a defensemen. I first started playing hockey when I was three years old when I lived in Canada. My first steps were actually here at the old Greenberg Ice Arena. I’m a third generation Penn Stater. I’ve always had that feeling that I knew I was gay ever since I was younger living in Canada but my first time being called a faggot was my sophomore year of college. It kind of was like a knife right to the heart and it hurt me because I had never really been called that before in my life. I cried for a little bit because… you know, everything became real. After that, I realized that the best thing to do is to keep calm, cool and collected. If you blow up on him, yeah, he wins. And if it is during a sporting event take it up with the officials, take it up with the coach and bring it to the athletic department. By no means did I ever want to crucify the kid that did this but I think that using it as a learning point for schools and athletic teams, I think that everyone needs to be educated more on the proper way to handle things. And I think this I think, is the step in the right direction that we need. Interviewer: And for inquiring minds at home… Are you single? I am single, yes!

    So an hockey player's first reaction was to call the ref? Not to knock the guy's teeth out?

    Actually, the way to respond is not to censor the word by getting some authority involved, because that only gives the word more power. If you truly want to get the word faggot to cause fewer negative effects, use it more. I know it seems counterintuitive, but words only have the power you give them. Make it as common as carbon and it will have no power.

    For some reason being called a "faggot" has never really done anything for me, I always just own up to being gay. I'm proud of who I am.
    The one word that really gets under my skin and boils me on the inside is "degenerate". I don't know why, it just really hurts me.

    I want to live in a world in which we aren't black or white, gay or straight, Muslim or Christian. I want us to be ONE, but derogatory comments like this only stop us from becoming a more loving and tolerant people.

    OH, and to anyone who says that they're just words, or that words don't hurt: just stop. WORDS like this one are the reason I was depressed for three years. WORDS like this one are the reason I considered suicide every waking minute for three years. Think before you speak, because you may not realize just how broken someone else could be.

    I live in Germany and the german equivalent to Faggot pretty much is "Schwuchtel" I am Bisexual and a bit crazy so im often walking around in fishnet or ripped to the max clothes also I had pink colored Hair at the time so I guess it was obvious that im LGBT so I heard a shout behind my Back as I was crossing the Street calling out "schwuchtel and I turn around and see two of those bald headed compact guys in Leatherjacket and sport scarfs. Without really thinking about it I responded "Better shit on my Dick than just shit in my head." The two looked shocked that I dared to say that for a moment and then started sprinting after me but I managed to put enough distance between us the y didnΒ΄t saw me going in a nearby Building of my Universtiy (In Hamburg the University isnΒ΄t on one premise but scatterd througout the city) enterd the Lift and went up to the administration. I am often thinking about that day because it could have gone terribly wrong. So Istarted taking martial Arts Lessons after that and I can just recommend it. It gives you a feeling of strength and confidence when your dealing with Homophobic assholes.

    It was great how you stood up for yourself. You're a strong man so stay strong. I was recently called a "fag" by one of my friend and her friends for screaming and supporting "The Chainsmokers" at the concert. They were seriously calling me it. It was real and my first time being called me that. However, I still got to enjoy the concert and decided it was best not to talk or hang out with my friend and her friends anymore.

    Amazing video. I bet that swagger translates great to the ice !

    As for the word, I used to look it up in dictionaries. Mostly a bundle of sticks, but sometimes also the derogatory thing. It probably hurt when I was deeply closeted but it seems to have lost much of its venom. But if someone wants to spit hateful anti-gay words, it sure does seem to still fit the bill. Some funny comments here too though hehe
