Usage notes[edit]

The word bög (in the meaning "male homosexual") has in the past two decades evolved from being a highly offensive and derogatory term to a word used by homosexuals to describe themselves in a conscious effort to rid the word and the concept it describes from its taboo status. It can nowadays be used in most mediums (including newspapers and national media broadcasts) as a fairly neutral and innocuous term, although context still dictates whether the use of the word is considered derogatory or acceptable.
