I totally agree with you. Honestly, it’s a fine line! There is so much exclusive and generalized language these days that it makes it difficult to identify what each individual person prefers. The only reason I try not to use queer as an umbrella term is because I want to be conscientious of the fact that some people find it too general or restrictive. However, I TOTALLY respect someone’s individual decision to use the word or identify with it (such as you). I’m glad we have an abundance of labels in the world of sexuality so that people can find ones that fit them comfortably.

Thanks for sharing your perspective and for reading!
