can a gay man call himself "queer"?
I resent you people using that word. That's our word for making fun of you!
Being cuntroversial in order to do some second hand jagging is pretty desperate.
you can say anything, just be prepared to justify it.
but it doesnt really help enforce the idea that other people shouldn't call you it also, does it?

It's the same as pretty much any other thing in language - you probably need to be sensitive to who you're using the word around and how they feel about it.
queer isn't an insult these days i thought.
Queer theory and all that...
and fair enough if you're a gay person, who understands the connotations of that word, and still choose to use it, so be it. Just don't be afraid to seriously offend people.
in which case - what the fuck?
