Fag. Sissy. Queer. A new video takes a look at homophobic language. It’s all part of a No Homophobes campaign with a website that measures how often anti-gay words are being tweeted on a daily, weekly and yearly basis.

At press time, faggot’s shown up on Twitter almost 15,400 times today. And phrases like “That’s so gay” appear close to 5,000 times, while dyke is mentioned almost 2,000 times.
