They're here, they're queer...And if they want to call THEMSELVES that, that's one thing.

It may be offensive if a straight person does it, except in a friendly way from someone you know well.

Yes PDX Dave, I agree with that.
With every right comes a responsibility ~ the right to free speech with the reposiblility on how it's used.... hate speech can not only be hurtful but inciting hatred.
To say certain words are out is too simplistic and can be used as an excuse to name call, as this thread can show. Intent, is important, it's one thing to call a friend a name in a joking manner but another to say it to a stranger.
Having said that the word homo can be just the same when used in the same way as quer and not as an abbreviation.
But, then having said that, it's just words, the bad comes with the intent and implied threat or intimidation
