What you mean to say is that it's a completely misused term that doesn't come even close to applying to the situations it's used to describe.

Also, he's only mocking the camp ones, which I think is entirely fair. If he mocked attention seeking straight people no one would bat an eyelid. Camp gay people are merely attention seekers, and fair game as far as I'm cercerned.

Naturally, your personal usage should be considered superior to the generally accepted usage.

The basis for this second claim eludes me. How can you parse the particulars of what Zakk intends to mock and not to mock? When someone like Zakk Wylde poses in the affectations stereotypically ascribed to gay men, he's not making a point about camp. He's making fun of fags.
