IPO: Queer is not an offensive term - update your policy

I'm signing because I totally agree that minority groups should have the right to attach their own 'labels' When words are chosen that in the past have been used in a derogatory sense against us, there is a sense of empowerment when we take the name ourselves. Additionally, I would say that there is no other word in the English vocabulary that expresses the same meaning as 'queer'. The word is needed and empowers us.
