I'm linking to the Freeper thread rather than directly to the story in The Atlantic because the Freeper comments are more edifying.

I'm pretty sure the term is "poof" per Monty Python.

I know that but Abdul always refers to himself as a "horrid old poove."

Looked it up.

not a poove in the carload.

BTW, they refer to it as "disparaging". Certainly less so than "queer", no? I had thought that it was sort of vaguely playful and not disparaging.

Then again "queer" has been co-opted so it is more acceptable I guess.

I recall Dick Gregory's remark about his book Nigger. He supposedly told his mom that if she heard the word in the future it was because people were talking about his book.
