« Graffiti Is an Italian Word, After All | Main | Drama Queers! by Frank Anthony Polito »

June 01, 2009



Good points about the change in language towards the fuzzy, fudgy group names we have now. I'd also add the ubiquitous: "LGBT people." I'm totally in favor of inclusion, but in terms of language, does anyone outside of queers into politics, e.,g all other queers, and all straight people, have any idea what that those letters actually mean? I don't have a neat solution. 'Queer', I think, never really caught on (and besides, the slur of choice when I was a kid in brooklyn, was 'homo'), and I understand that LBT's don't all see themselves fitting as 'gay', but LGBT is a nonsense word to most people.
