but flamer "glaringly conspicuous person or thing" (1809) and flaming "glaringly conspicuous" (1781) are much earlier in the general sense, both originally with reference to "wenches."

Your initial post was incorrect and I have left supporting evidence every step of the way to dissuade you whereas you have given no evidence to support your erroneous claim. If you read the articles and information from the links I posted it should be glaringly obvious to you that the term flaming faggot derives from sources other than burning gay people. However, if it not obvious to you I have no further need to present my point. As I stated it should be glaring obvious to any but the most close minded or incognizant individual and thus any further post on my part on this topic would be a waste of my time.

You realize I pulled that directly from the Wikipedia article Faggot (slang): Faggot, often shortened to fag, is a pejorative term broadly meaning an effeminate gay man.

Directly from the article with very little critical thought on my part. Simply presented evidence that is strongly counter to the statement you made in an attempt to disprove your assertion. It is not something I am personally involved in researching. However, the article states the term faggot probably derives for the term for an older female and earlier a "faggot-gatherer."

Directly from the article:

"The origins of the word as an offensive epithet for homosexuals are rather obscure, although the word has been used in English since the late 16th century as an abusive term for women, particularly old women,[7] and reference to homosexuality may derive from this,[6][8] as female terms are often used with reference to homosexual or effeminate men (cf. nancy, sissy, queen). The application of the term to old women is possibly a shortening of the term "faggot-gatherer", applied in the 19th century to people, especially older widows, who made a meagre living by gathering and selling firewood"

It is likely that this is where the term faggot derives from and the flaming aspect derives from one of the meanings of flaming prior to it being attached to homosexuals or faggots: www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=flaming&allowed_in_frame=0

To put it another way: Flaming faggot is a clever play on words meaning either a pile of sticks meant for burning which are on fire or a homosexual of strong passions (ie a very obvious homosexual).

In other words, there's really nothing wrong with my initial post. The reason that people use the term "flaming faggot" as an insult to gay people could have just as likely originated from what I stated as not.

SERIOUSLY? I understand you need to feel superior by attempting to win an argument on the internet but when I post an article you could at least consider reading it before you rapidly reply and demonstrate the amount of ignorance you have.

I would tell you to read the article but since you didn't bother to do that the first time I posted I've pulled the relevant paragraph for you:

"It is sometimes claimed that the modern slang meaning developed from the standard meaning of "faggot" as "bundle of sticks for burning," presumably with reference to burning at the stake.[6] It is true that supposed witches and heretics were burnt to death in some parts of Europe, and were often accused of deviant sexual behaviour.[9] However, any association of the term faggot with executions had long become a historical curiosity by the time the slang sense of the word arose in twentieth-century America.[6] Moreover, burning was never prescribed as a punishment for homosexuality in either Britain or America"

Believe it or not, a saying doesn't always come from fact. Flaming faggot arose because people thought that homosexuals were also burned.

You're thinking too literally.

You realize of course that faggot was the term for a bundle of sticks used to fuel fires right? And that the term flaming faggot referred to these things catching on fire. In fact here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faggot_(slang)

Inform yourself.

Yes, I do. You realize it is because of that fact that the gays they burned were called that, right?

Did I really just have to explain that?
