Vulgar ways to say “Gay” in Croatian are not as socially accepted and can be considered offensive by many. The most commonly used terms are “peder”, “štakor”, and “homofobija”. The word “Peder” is a derogatory term for gay men in Croatia and is derived from the Latin puer meaning boy or youth. It implies that being gay is an immature behavior, which contributes to its negative connotation. It has been used since at least the 19th century to refer derogatorily to homosexual men but remains popular today among some Croatians who may use it casually within their social circles without considering its potential offensiveness.

The word “Štakor” (also spelled štačke) literally translates into rat-like creature or rodent and is often used as a pejorative term for homosexuals in Croatia due to its association with uncleanliness or filthiness.
