Faggot at one point referred to small sticks used as kindling before being later redefined, through a concept called common usage, to refer to one who gathered said materials or performed other menial, laborious work to eek out a meager existence. Gay once meant someone of a good-natured disposition.

Look at the Spanish language throughout Latin America. Anyone who has studied Spanish knows there's huge differences in regional diction, slang, usage and phrasing. "Pinche" is an obscenity in Mexico ("pinche baboso" ~ "fucking moron") but roughly means "spiny" or "pointy" throughout the rest of Latin America. Common usage means the meanings of these words changes, that semantics and syntax are not gridlocked. Linguists who don't know jack about etymology commonly try to make the point you are. Words aren't "twisted" and their definitions aren't "lost".

And thus, you're a gay, faggot douche canoe.
