Smile OK to use the word "Queer" ?

**I didn't ask the question in the title of this thread, it got split off from another thread**

I think a lot of it has to do with how a particular person perceives a word. Just as an example, I know several gay people who would be very offended if they were referred to as “queer”. In fact, I don't think I have heard the word queer used in that context the public media for quite, but perhaps it's a new thing.

If you tell someone that you don’t like a certain word, or that you are offended by it and why (even if they don’t agree that a word is especially offensive); usually they will be nice enough to stop using it. I've been on both ends of that stick here.
