If you really want to learn proper spoken English, I sometimes need to teach “bad” words. These are used a lot by native speakers, and they are NOT taught in schools because schools are scared to teach things that might get them in trouble. Not here! I want you guys to learn EVERYTHING that all native speakers know and use. This is useful English here! Don’t forget it. We want you to be like a native speaker and we will do everything we can on our program to make that happen.
A “flamer” is a derogatory (very negative) term used to describe a gay man. It is not used to describe a gay female. There are lot’s of unkind slang words used to describe many different things.
The reason a gay man could be called a “flamer” has a very sad and terrible history actually. In the past, certain cultures used to set gay men on fire. They would burn them to death! It sounds crazy but it’s the truth. That’s what happened. So when anything burns from fire, there are a lot of “flames”. If something is “flaming” it means it’s burning.
So a flamer is a very negative, yet common, name for a gay man, and a “flaming homosexual” is another very negative way to describe a gay man. You SHOULD NOT call gay men this, but we believe it’s important you know what ALL words and phrases mean. We want you to learn everything and we aren’t afraid to teach whatever is useful for language. That’s what this program is all about. The good, the bad, just everything! I hope you appreciate it and can at least understand why we take the risk. We just want you to learn
