Portuguese swears like bicha, boiola and viado cannot be used in any situation. Saying this words to a gay person is extremely offensive. You can only use the words bicha or viado (with this meaning) if you are a member of the LGBTQIA+ community because they are reclaiming the word. After all, is not offensive at all to be homosexual, right?

Cariocas often call each other viado without meaning homosexual.

All this words are offensive and you shouldn’t use it especially if you are talking directly to someone, but use instead when write paper talking about a situation. Don’t go using our lesson to be mean to people, we certainly don’t want to encourage that!
