    At DePaul, queer studies finds a niche
    University's offering of new minor draws full classes, also critics

    (this story was on the front page of the print edition, in case anyone's wondering)


    •  I believe that proudly using the term queer (4.00)
      diminishes the derogatory element to it.

      I'm a straight white woman so if I'm wrong bear with me.

      I've tried to do that whenever I've been called a bitch. My response to that is thank you, and your problem with that is?

      Same thing with the word liberal. "You're calling me liberal, fine, what about that?"

      I've started to think that we should do the same thing with the word Democrat (used as an adjective by the Republicans to bugs us, as in the Democrat Party). If everyone here on dKos started calling the Democratic Party, the Democrat Party, I Ken Mehlman would start calling it the Democratic Party.

      The Republicans have a fundamental problem with telling the truth - Howard Dean.
