Naming the "Outsider Within": Homophobic Pejoratives and the Verbal Abuse of Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual High-School Pupils.
Thurlow, Crispin
Journal of Adolescence, v24 n1 p25-38 Feb 2001
Adolescents (N=377) listed the perjoratives they heard at school and identified the ones they considered most taboo. Homophobic perjoratives accounted for 10% of the 6,000 items generated, but were rated much less seriously than either racist abuse or other taboo slang. Boys reported more homophobic perjoratives than girls, but rated them more seriously. (MKA)
