I'm just waiting to see how people are going to find a way to get bent out of shape about this one...

I know exactly what you mean about flipping pages looking for typos -- "Hang on... I thought this was a guy, is he a girl and I missed it?"

On my part, at any rate, I was well aware of homosexuality before the white horses got there. On the other hand, I'm male, and "fag!" was a sixth-grade insult, so that made obliviousness pretty much impossible.

I dunno…I think sixth-grade boys are perfectly capable of calling each other "fag" without really knowing what the word means.

I achieved mortal embarrassment at age 11 when naming an Ultima character. You see, it was a halfling, so I just reversed a couple letters in "bilbo"...

An older cousin explained the meaning to me, between sniggers.

When I was really little, I received a stuffed rabbit for my birthday.

I named him Horey.

My mom tried to convince me to name him otherwise, but I was firm on calling him Horey. It turns out she was embarrassed that I would named a toy that sounded like "whore".

Yes, but it tends to bring up the "what does that mean?" line of questions.
