I have heard a lot of debate about this, so I was wondering what you all here think. Queer was originally used as an offensive term for gay people, but in recent years, it has come to be more of a label of pride for some. But not everyone can separate it from its offensive past. As I understand, queer is a word for anyone who isn't straight: gay, lesbian, bisexual, pansexual. I've also heard the term used to cover alternate gender identities. How do people here feel about the term?
