I'm old enough to remember 'Fag' being used only for 'Cigarette,' in the 16th century (no, I'm not hardly that old) the word 'Faggot' was used as an abusive term for women, usually older women. While I don't use either word now because of the abusive nature they've been transferred into, its not the words that are abusive, its how they are used. It would take an awfully intelligent filter to determine when to filter words based usage. Also, if you were to completely take both words out of the English language, the abuser/haters would find other words to use. while filters are not perfect, they are what we have now, but they need to be used in conjunction with education, of course there are people that refuse all forms of education. The answer would have to come from someone wiser than me.
