{{I've never heard either of my children use the n-word. I think I heard "lezbo" once and "queer" once.}}

I do not recall every using the n word of the f word (not to be confused with the f bomb). However, I am sure I said "queer" countless times as the game "Smear the Queer" was very popular where I grew up. Though I do not think that any of us knew that the word "queer" referred to sexual orientation. I doubt that many knew what sexual orientation meant.
