One reason I like queer is because I think straight allies can use it for themselves, as a way of expressing the 'straight but not narrow' slogan lots of GLBTQ allies embrace. I think anyone who feels a bit left of center, in terms of their pleasures and/or their presentation to the world, could use queer as a self-descriptor. Just my personal opinion, though. I will say, though, that plenty of people who self-identify as gay or lesbian or bi or trans hate the word, and for some of those people, I really have met straight people that are more 'queer' than they are. No slur meant against GLBT people who don't embrace a more overt GLBTQ vibe, but to show that the community is as varied and diverse as 'straight' society.

viva la differance!
