From a modern sociolinguistic perspective, this is readily understandable as an observation about the effects of social networks on language-use: speakers who are peripheral to a community’s core social networks can be expected to be less advanced in their use of the relevant linguistic variables. Whether, how and to what extent a given homosexual uses ‘the homosexual’s language’ is, then, a question about social relationships rather than sexual proclivities.

And, finally, the making of a slang synonym for almost anything or anyone nefarious, with no regard to his sexual inclination, of the term c—r, is comparable only to the hatred expressed by our society against out-of-wedlock children, who in addition to being characterized as illegitimate, are called bastards. Like c—r, the word bastard is used to describe anyone on whom contempt is heaped. In this way, an insulting connotation is implied in a word which, in its literal meaning, should merely describe the status or activity of a person.
