Negonym . by sundersart23 Negonym . by sundersart23
I came up with a new word to describe some elements of my practice. I tried to get it accepted on to Wikipedia, but as an unsourced, brand new world it has no precedence, only the context of my practice.

In time though.

Queer.
'Queer street' to find oneself in trouble.
'How queer'.
hononym- term of abuse for gay men.
 I think queer fits the definiton of negonym since with gay rights improvements queer is now vanishing from the language due to its past history of homophobia.

Someone asked me to express an example of a negonym .
Faggot and faggot - both a meatball and a term of abuse to gay men.
Fag - slang for ciggrette in England and a term of abuse to gay men.
If you have more negonyms, please leave them in comments thanks.
