My Use of the Word Queer...

Cardiologineer Cardiologineer
Although I classify myself as bisexual to most people who would not neccesarily understand my use of the word "queer," I would say my overall I like the term queer to refer to my sexuality because it's so open and inclusive and I just like the way it sounds also. To me, it also seems like most people assume that bisexual means equally attracted to men and women, when in reality, I am attracted mostly to women and the female side of the spectrum but hesitate to call myself a lesbian, as my current partner is male.
Any other bisexual-queer folks out there.

I do the same thing lol, depending on the context and who I'm talking to I'm either bi, pan or queer. It keeps things pretty simple when I don't like to go into rediculus detail lol

I usually say I'm queer because I'm both pansexual and genderqueer. It's easier to just say "queer" and clarify only if I have to, since both pansexual and genderqueer get me a lot of confused looks when I use them.

I'm a kinsey 3, basically 50/50 attraction to men and women but I still call myself queer in addition to bisexual. I like the idea of reclaiming the word. And it just seems to fit because it is the most inclusive label and I want to give myself room to experience other sexual attitudes like polyamory etc

I love identifying as queer because it's open to a lot of different people and experiences while also being political in nature. For me, it's about anti-assimilation as much as it is sexual identity.
