Recently I have begun wondering what is the origin of the word Bulldagger. I am pretty sure the word was alive and well in the 1940's, but am not sure when it actually began or if it beginning was in the Black Community. I am also interested in the etemology (sp?) of the word.
other questions include why did we connect Dagger to the gay community Dagger I bel means a sword or an instrument used to penetrate someone or an animal. Don't see how the word got associated with the gay community. I am also very curious on the origin of the word Dag. As a collector of Daguerrotypes and Ambrotype photos I find it curious the connection , so again woulkd love to know the etemology, the root of the word Dag, and see if their is any reasoning to how the term Bulldagger came to be.
