lesbian: I identify as a lesbian because I'm attracted to women.
gay guy: I identify as gay because I'm attracted to men.
bisexual: I identify as bisexual because I'm attracted to both men and women.
queer person: I identify as queer because the moment I came out of my precious parental unit's womb in a gust of glitter i knew i was gonna be unique. i am the eye of a storm, a street warrior wearing knee-high boots and a smile as I fuck up the system with nothing but my hairspray and knuckle dusters. I am queer because I am a diamond in the rough of sexual conformity. i don't like bodies, i like people's souls and i long for the embrace of a hard femme lover with fabulous facial hair who will be my steampunk romeo and the captain of my spaceship across the universe and beyond. I am no mere mortal, I am more than my humdrum middle class existence, i am a rebel, a lover, a fiend, a revolutionary. i will stand tall when heteronormative scum try and put me down. i am queer because there is nobody else quite like me. i am queer hear. me. roar.
