Going too far

Does anyone (else) here feel that I should start kicking off people who are gay who refer to themselves as “fags”, or feel that people who do so are bigots or engaging in hatespeech? Personally I think it's a ridiculous notion, and at best a sad excuse by bigots to try and strike out in one last way at the groups they hate. Are there any people here in the gay community who feel threatened when others inside the gay community use words like “queer” in a positive and self-referential way?

To be very clear: If you are gay, you are more than welcome to call yourself a “fag”. Unless you file a TOS complaint about yourself, I have no interest in listening to someone else's complaints about it.
