queer

I am a gay man who has been out, and comfortable being so, since 1967.

I find it difficult to continue reading any article which uses phrases like "queer identity".

You won't find very many gay men - women I can't speak for - who don't find the word "queer" alien and alienating.

Not because we associate it with historical oppression, but because it is bandied around by a group of theorising intellectuals who claim to speak for all of us.

You don't.
