limp-wristed

an offensive, pejorative term for Queer men that are effeminate that has come to be used as an insult to gay men as a whole (playing on the stereotype of gay men as effeminate). Reclaimed by some sections of the gay community, whilst others reject the term as they do not want their sexuality to be associated with being effeminate.
