You do know where faggot comes from, right? The word for a bundle of sticks. Well, back when people burned witches they also burned an assortment of other people with problems: pedophiles, rapists, and even homosexuals. Because of how Christian the people doing the burning were, they felt the homosexuals were not worth burning alone. So when they burned a witch or whatever, they threw the gays into the fire all tied up with the other faggots.

Yes, it used to have a different meaning. But words change over time. It is now known as a derogatory term against gays. Just because it has not been updated in any modern dictionaries does not mean that the result is morally better.

Connotation and denotation both matter. As a society and culture our language has adapted. Even if you don't really mean gay when you call someone a faggot, you still use it as a derogatory term, and the only point it was used as such beforehand is AT the gay community.

And, finally, you do not have the right to tell people they aren't allowed to be offended. You, if in America, have the right to free speech. But they also have the right to voice their objections to your word usage. And defending it by bringing up a definition that changed over a hundred years ago just makes you look childish and ignorant.
