What is or isn’t a slur can be highly contextual, y'all.
“Jonny Sims bummed a fag off my ma” doesn’t contain a slur, but “What are you, some kind of fag?” does.
“Queer studies”, “the queer community” and “I’m queer”? Not a slur. Some bigot calling you a “dirty queer”? Slur.
“Be gay, do crimes” and “He’s gay” ≠ slur, but “Ew, that’s so gay” = slur.
In conclusion, stop buying into this fucking “q slur” bullshit. Queer people talking about the queer community aren’t using it as a slur any more than a gay man calling himself gay is using that term as a slur.
Everyone tagging this as “Don’t call people ‘queer’ if they aren’t comfortable with it”, I don’t disagree with you, but I do have one question for you:
Why are you singling out “queer”?
Hi, I’m queer and I don’t like being called gay. Why is it always “don’t call people 'queer’ if they don’t like it” but never “don’t call people 'gay’ if they don’t like it”? Or just “don’t call people words they are uncomfortable with”?
Why is it only ever “queer” that gets singled out?
And why do you even feel the need to tag that onto this post? All I said was “stop tagging people referring to themselves this way as if it were the same as bigots hurling it as a slur”.
