A short story about Superman saving mermaid Bruce and bringing him back to the Fortress of Solitude _(:з)∠)_
before you call all lgbt people “queer” ask yourself if you would form a feminist club referring to all women as “bitches” and tell women who are uncomfortable with the word “bitch” to just get over it already
This is a touchy topic for a lot of people it seems. Idk….
Queer is one of those words that mostly (not exclusively, but mostly) bothers the older portion of the community, because its use as a slur is kind of dated. So while I think it’s important to acknowledge the associations some people may have with the word from the past, it is a pretty reclaimed word at this point. Plus, I personally like ‘queer community’ better than ‘LGBTQ community’, because it doesn’t seem to prioritize some identities over others. If you’re lesbian, gay, bi, or transgender you get a letter in the publicized, shortened version of the long acronym, but any other identities are relegated to what amounts to an ‘etc’, and much of the time that ‘etc’ is dropped in mainstream media too. This is why I prefer umbrella terms in general. Another umbrella term I like, although it has its own issues, is GSRM (gender, sexual and romantic minorities). GSM has bad connotations from its use in the scientific community, but I still like GSRM…
