Funny Queer

Lot's of non-bigoted people have started using the word 'gay' to describe things in a negative way.  That's not cool.  I've been known to do it and it makes me feel kinda bad.  My apologies to all you gays out there who read my blog.

What I've decided to do is to replace the word 'gay' with the word 'queer.'  You may be saying to yourself, "well, Cayce, that's the same thing,"  but I disagree.  The word queer has been used and is still used to mean strange or unusual, so I'm going to use that definition.  I'm going to single-handedly bring that word back to it's original meaning. 

Besides, queer is more fun to say than gay... it does have a Q in it after all. 

... Maybe I'm just being gay queer.

I uses to actually use the word queer to mean strange when I was in elementary school. And then someone told me it was offensive and then I stopped. And that was when I figured out that you could tell other kids that regular words were "bad words" - Caroline believed that "ears like cats" (from Josie and the Pussycats) was a SUPER bad word phrase for about 2 weeks!!

I use the word queer from time to time (using its original meaning), but I still feel awkward and guilty, like it's off limits now.
