Today on Facebook I referred to Tea Party members as “tea baggers” and I had no clue it would start a debate. A conservative person I know decided to chime in and call me out on trying to use an anti-gay slur. I had no clue what he was talking about.
Right away, I turn to UrbanDictionary.com. If any site has any and all definitions for a slang or slur, this would be the site.
Someone who rests their testicles on another person face, while they are asleep/passed out.
guy dipping his balls into a girls mouth, slowly going up and down just like a tea bagg
when a guy drops his balls into a girls mouth while she is awake
ok… I’m still not seeing it…
1) A male engages in the sexual act of tea bagging. in which he stands over his partner and lowers his testicles into his partner’s mouth, as if lowering a tea bag into a tea cup.
2) A follower of the conservative US Tea Party political movement, often used as a derogatory term.
and the list continues on…
I went through all of the definitions and different spellings for tea bagger on Urban Dictionary. There was nothing about it being an anti-gay slur.
Now I am trying to figure out where the hell he is getting this from. I turn to Google.
First thing I see, a video from Sean Hannity.
Ok.. now it’s becoming clear.
After looking at a lot of the results from the search, it’s plainfully evident that the right is trying to twist the term into a anti-gay slur. A lot of it has to do with Obama calling people from the Tea Party “Tea Baggers” back in May.
Think of the hyprocracy.
People from the Tea Party, who have called themselves Tea Baggers, are in an uproar about Obama saying the word “Tea Bagger”. How do they twist it without sounding racist? Let’s try and make it an anti-gay slur.
Remember, this is the same group of people who called Rep. Lewis a “Ni**er”,and called Rep. Frank a “Fa**ot”.
