Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer Ben Brock:
“What do you think of the word queer?”
I’ll add a little context. Queer was once used as an extremely negative word toward the gay community in particular and the LGBTIQA community in general. As our acronyms have qotten longer, many folks have searched for an easier shorthand for the community, but the word still carries its own baggage too. We’ve adopted it for a number of our ventures, but I (Scott) am more comfortable with it than Mark, my slightly older husband.
How do y’all feel about it, and why?
