Proper Noun: Typically, this title is bestowed to an ugly and/or fat girl who has been systematically rejected by nearly all non-gay males for a significant portion of her life.

To those who do not fit the aforementioned demographic, some other psychological or emotional problem has likely manifested itself, causing normal romantic developments with non gay males to become problematic at best.

To counteract this state of affairs, the fag hag attaches herself to homosexual males (normally of the extreme flamer variety). Psychosocial data suggests that this is a passive relationship that begins out of fear of rejection, but can often progress to full blown dementia, dullusional or irrational behavior patterns, or obsessive compulsion.

Though not an officially recognized neurological or psychological disorder by the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), hundreds of case studies documenting the behavior have been submitted to the American Medical Association and the American Psychological Association for further review.

As of this writing (NOV 2010), no official response has been issued by these governing bodies, but many speculate that fear of social stigma or notions of political correctness have acted as a significant barrier to further study.
Psychiatrist: "So how long have you been acting as a fag hag"?

Patient: "I am not a fag hag, and that term offends me. I just choose to surround myself with only gay men. Your obviously nothing but a homophobe. It is you who have the problem......"

Also known as Fruit Fly and Queer Dear. This is a woman who prefers the company of gay men because she recognizes their effervesence, incisive wit, and sheer brilliance regarding the human condition. This woman appreciates the fact that gay men know how to drill down to the bittersweet core of an issue and make light of it where necessary, and simultaneously make dark humor of it where otherwise necessary. It is a gift that comes from being an outsider: rather than lying down and taking a beating, as some do, the exaulted gay man rises from the ashes and finds the ridiculous glory in being an outsider. In this endeavor, he seeks the company of a woman, and she of him...because regardless of intentions, women and men enjoy the company of those who feel "right" to each other.

Because this type of woman is generally spoiled by the general delightfulness of gay men, she may scorn straight men for their lack of personality and overall dullness.
She had a boring but biologically necessary momentary sexual encounter with a straight man named "Todd," but she soon grew bored of his attention and longed to be encircled in the warm and safe womb of the gay bar. "I must tend to my mother," she told him, as she eyed the clock and noted that it was 1:10 am. In her mind, she calculated and realized she still had time to make it to the bar and hook up with some boys who would eventually stay until dawn and entertain her bottomless need to be intellectually and emotionally stimulated.

In light of this, she deftly dressed herself, and buffed and fluffed her makeup in this Todd's sticky dank bathroom. She then politely delivered a well-placed kiss upon the former object of her desire, and hailed the first cab in sight. She knew with utmost assurity, after all, that straight men are for sex; gay men are for love.

A fag hag is a woman who prefers the company of gay men.
A fag hag is a woman who prefers the company of gay men. The marriage of two derogatory terms, fag and hag, symbolizing the union of the world's most popular objects of scorn, homosexual and woman, creates a moniker that most of those who wear it find inoffensive, possibly because it smacks of solidarity.
