I have no idea whether any of you girls have the same problem or not, but i hate the term people use for girls that hang around mostly gay men - *** Hags! I take it personally because HAG kinda makes it sound like im ugly OMG! I know thats really stupid. I just love my gay bois though I live with one, and i work for one, and i prefer the gay clubs. I think I'd rather be called a "Fruity Fly."
Well, gay bois don't use that term in a derogatory way - its just like "Oh thats Kimberly, Chris's FagHag." All the gay boys love me though Im just like - No, Im not a faghag, im his bestfriend.
i never take it as an insult. in fact, i take it as quite the compliment. i have a goodly number of gay friends. i hadn't heard of it till one of my friends dubbed me as his "hag." imho, i interpret it as meaning that he thinks of me as a good friend.

See - Im a straight girl that has lots of gay guy friends, not a lesbian.
I don't know WHY, im offended by the term in general - cuz I know Im a hottie I just think its an outdated term. I think I'll just refer to myself as - a friend of the family - Or a - Fairy Collector -
yeah, i know what you mean, i hate being called that. i think its probably because in my mind i link that term to the kind of girl whose just gotta have a gay male friend, almost as an accessory. who just love gay guys cos they're 'so adorable!', but if one of her friends told her she was a lesbian would have quite a major problem with it. and the way its almost essential in sitcoms and 'twentysomething bittersweet dramas' to have a gay male best friend. i know its a huge stereotype and probably not very fair, but on the other hand i did go to school with a fair few people like that. x p.s. sorry, think i got a bit carried away with the 'bunny rabbits'.
