the push to re-instate Queer as a slur is TERF agenda because its easier for them to figure out who the "wrong" sorts are by neat little labels. Queer is too inclusive and too covert and they HATE it.
so using Queer is a real schrodinger problem. you're either the right or wrong type but they can't know which until they look in the box and it drives them up the wall.
good. die mad about it. i'll die queer.
MetaFilter, the non-shitty community website I run, is an achingly longevitive 22 years old today. Every year a site member makes a goofy birthday post to celebrate the very first post back in 1999, to a long-defunct site called cat-scan.com that we eventually acquired the domain of.
My company's queer affinity group got everyone the Lego Everyone is Awesome set for Pride. Mine just arrived and I'm excited to put it together. But why on earth is it labeled for ages 18+?! It's not adult-themed or particularly complicated, and young teens can probably be trusted not to put the small pieces in their mouths.

I sincerely think the world is richer and more beautiful for trans men marching with their scars, for pups howling to the crowd, for enbies' genderfuck aesthetics, for the drag queens and the vapid party boys and the Dykes on Bikes and the whips in the park and the Sisters running security, for the Butch lesbian Sir in her wheelchair, holding the reins of two subs. All these things which may shock and horrify some: they have a right to march, to be seen; they are splendiferous, they are worthy.
