The phrase comes from the Movie of the Millennium, Mike Judge's Idiocracy. In this 2006 masterpiece, a painfully ordinary man from today wakes up in the year 2500 -- by which time centuries of dysgenic breeding has dumbed down society to the point where a mediocrity from our time suddenly finds himself the smartest man on earth (by default); while "the English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, Valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them."
In Judge's terrifying vision of a massively stupid future -- basically, a world run by Beavis and Butt-head -- anyone who still speaks in complete sentences is treated with suspicion and scorn. Like many disturbing things in Idiocracy, we see evidence that this prejudice against the literate is already underway.

* Please note that our use here of the word "faggy" does not intend any disrespect toward gay people -- and we don't believe Mike Judge intends any either!
