Fairies wear boots? Black Sabbath?

Yeah, ok, that was late 1960s, early 1970s and not really the most popular song on that album. But we used the term fairy back in the day when I was in grade school (1970s) derogatorily so it is a long time ago.

For reference on scelaton's points, watch Archie Bunker. It's both hilarious and completely unreal in terms of today's views. More or less now can give you a chuckle and function as a documentary on tasteless behaviour.
