As i said for many times, i´m not an english-speaker. So i´m not sure of the sense of many words. One of those is queer. I knew this word on tv, with "Queer as folk", and thought it wasn´t offensive. But now i´m not sure of it. I´ve searched for its meaning and i think it could be offensive, but at the same time i have seen it in this site several times, as an usual expression. I don´t know when or how it can be put in a way so as not to offend. Of course, i haven´t the need to use it. What do you think about it? By the way, i don´t like to use the term straight, supposes that gays are outta the right way. I do find it offensive. Do prefer hetero, more exact.
