This word literally refers to an insect that eats shit. In Mexico, it is used to refer--NOT to a gay man--but to a man who has sex with gay men (as a top) and receives blow jobs from gay men. According to Mexican social roles, as long as you're active and not passive, it doesn't matter the gender of your partners, you're still straight. Therefore, these men who fuck men/recieve sexual favors from men still consider themselves straight. The derogatory term for them is mayate.
What a mayate he is, he'll fuck every gay ass he sees.
