This argument might be completey obsolete when an admin decides if it is appropriate or not. But look into how the word "queer" is used on television or what it means in the dictionary. I'm all for political correctness but I think condemning the term gear queer is over the top PC. I know for a fact that the homosexual community has no problem with it. Also there is the context of this particular use. I'm referring to myself as "queer". What is the issue with that? Who has the right to tell me it's offensive to reffer to myself as queer? My argument (if this is an issue at all) is that in this context it is void of being offensive.
