Wiki

Faggot, often shortened to fag, is a pejorative term and common homophobic slur against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people, and is English slang. Its pejorative use has spread from the United States to varying extents elsewhere in the English-speaking world through mass culture including movies, music and Internet.

The term has additional meanings in British English, where "faggot" traditionally means a bundle of sticks and faggots are a kind of meatball.[3] In British English, "fag" is common slang for a cigarette or for hard work. In some UK public schools, fagging was the name given to the practice where a younger boy (a "fag") acted as an unpaid servant for an older boy.
