Thanks for posting the link to that article about the word "queer." It was really interesting. I'm not 40 or over, but I'm still not quite comfortable with using that word. Though, I think I find it less of a problem then "fag." Probably because "fag" and "faggot" were more often used as slurs where I grew up.
"Queer," to me, still holds the connotation of being "strange" or "odd." Which is why I probably don't like it that much. I don't think of myself as odd or strange. Well, at least not for liking men instead of women. In other ways, yes, I am little strange. :P But, not in the ways you probably think.

Seeing as me and my sister (plays football for England ?well, she made the team once!) have different fathers, our example supports the theory that the gay gene is passed through the mother. Any thoughts?
