Stop Asking Queer People to Define Queer for You

No, I will not define queer for you.


I consistently get trolls on here or other social platforms debating the use of the word "queer," or asking for more education/clarity around the term.


And, it's not just hetero, cis folks. It's older lesbian & gay folx as well. The word still stings for them.


There are plenty of resources out there to learn and study identity. It is not my responsibility to educate you on the modern interpretation of my identity or the term "queer." There is an entire critical theory field centered around queerness.


We live in an incredible time, where you can research these things within seconds. Stop asking people to do the work for you.
