1. A term used to refer to homosexuals, often as a slur.

2. A bundle of sticks

3. The Bottom in a BD/SM relationship

Coined in the victorian era, this term comes from the practice in British Public Schools of making the students do menial tasks such as gathering the sticks to make Faggots, which were used instead of logs. These menial tasks became known as "Faggot-work", and it was the lowest of the low socially that typically were made to do these tasks. These boys were often physically weak as well, and were left open to sexual advances from other boys or teachers with little or recourse to refuse

A meatball, a traditional culinary dish popular in the United Kingdom. Often served with gravy and mushy processed peas. Any internet search for (faggots and peas) will show you the meatballs' authenticity.

Faggots and Peas
1.5 lbs pig's fry 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
2 medium sized onions salt and pepper
2 tbsps fresh sage or 1 of dried 1 tbsp plain flour

Wask the fry, leaving the caul (the lacy, fatty membrane surrounding the stomach and gut) and leave it in lukewarm water to make it more pliable. Mince or chop the fry and onion and mix thoroughly with the breadcrumbs, seasoning and sage. Form into eight portions and wrap each portion in a piece of caul. Place in a baking dish and cover with the hot water. Bake in a moderate oven for about three hours until the faggots are nicely browned. More hot water cab be added if needed. Thicken the juice with the flour half an hour before serving.

These faggots are traditionally served with mushy peas: soak dried peas overnight and then team or boil slowly while the faggots are cooking.

I would just like to clear up something for the intrepid writers of definitions of the word "faggot."

The pejorative word, "faggot," is not French, Latin, or Old English for "bundle of sticks". This word originated in the early 20th century (the earliest printed reference is 1914). There are several hypotheses as to its origin, but it not likely derived from the identically spelled word which means a bundle of sticks.

Furthermore, gay people were not burned alive with bundles of sticks in the Dark Ages, the Salem Witch Trials, or Nazi Germany. That is an urban myth.
When you read the endless, doubtless well-intentioned posts asserting that "faggot" comes from burning gay people at the stake, remember that this is an urban myth. In fact, a lot of the things people repeat as fact are fabricated memes that have become part of the zeitgeist.

A faggot is a kind of meatball, a traditional dish in the UK, especially the southwest of England, Wales, and the Black Country. It is made from meat off-cuts and offal, especially pork. A faggot is traditionally made from pig heart, liver and fatty belly meat or bacon minced together, with herbs added for flavouring and sometimes breadcrumbs.
