I'm reading "Queer City" by Peter Ackroyd

I'm 11 pages in, but it's already very funny

Also: I'm collecting a bunch of great anti-queer slurs that are no longer in circulation that are ripe for reclaiming

* effeminati (sounds like a powerful worldwide secret society of men who make straight men uncomfortable)
* indorser (from the boxing term for hitting a man's back side)
* fribble (so cute!)
* giving caudle (sounds adorable and it's from the Latin "cauda" for "tail")

"Thank you for such an enthusiastic indorsement"
