I don't know any of you personally so cant speak to it first hand but even for here the word "fag" seems out of place. Pretty sure the last time i called anyone a fag I was in 5th or 6th grade. Just seems like an odd slur to use.
It's the perfect piece of slang, BECAUSE it was used in the 5th grade.
Another one I used extensively during my tenure as a ranch hand circa 2015/16 - "Prick". Not quite PC enough to drop in front of customers, too outdated, corny, and tame to be used in situations that really warranted an expletive, but perfect for inserting into otherwise boring language.
"Let's just get out there and get these stupid pricks(cows) moving"
"Grab me a handful of constructions screws, you dumb prick"
"Bogging the gator down in the North Fork up in this prick!" - my personal favorite, as the inventor. "Up in this prick" became my go to phrase.
Montucky Cold Pricks was the beer of choice on the ranch. The same price and better tasting than PBR, and you could drink 100 before getting a buzz, so good for digging post holes and repairing fences.
