derogatory

if a remark or comment is derogatory, it expresses a low opinion; as a result, there are many slang terms in use that refer to Queer identified people that are derogatory – that is, they exist to disrespect or belittle Queer people in a way that is deliberately offensive.

However, some of the terms (such as Queer itself), have been reclaimed.
