  1. queer

    Odd is unmated, as an odd shoe, and so uneven, as an odd number. Singular is alone of its kind; as, the singular number. What is singular is odd, but what is odd may not be singular; as, a drawerful of odd gloves. A strange thing is something hitherto unknown in fact or in cause. A singular coincidence is one the happening of which is unusual; a strange coincidence is one the cause of which is hard to explain. That which is peculiar belongs especially to a person as his own; as, Israel was called Jehovah's "peculiar people," i. e., especially chosen and cherished by him; in its ordinary use there is the implication that the thing peculiar to one is not common to the majority nor quite approved by them, though it may be shared by many; as, the Shakers are peculiar. Eccentric is off or aside from the center, and so off or aside from the ordinary and what is considered the normal course; as, genius is commonly eccentric. Eccentric is a higher and more respectful word than odd or queer. Erratic signifies wandering, a stronger and more censorious term than eccentric. Queer is transverse or oblique, aside from the common in a way that is comical or perhaps slightly ridiculous. Quaint denotes that which is pleasingly odd and fanciful, often with something of the antique; as, the quaint architecture of medieval towns. That which is funny is calculated to provoke laughter; that which is droll is more quietly amusing. That which is grotesque in the material sense is irregular or misshapen in form or outline or ill-proportioned so as to be somewhat ridiculous; the French bizarre is practically equivalent to grotesque.

How to use queer in a sentence?

  1. Rebecca Blacks:

    To me the word' queer' feels really nice, i've dated a lot of different types of people and I just don't really know what the future holds. Some days I feel a little more on the gay side than others.

  2. Dulcinea Pitagora:

    Queer, trans, and cis people are all socialized from a very young age to make all of the same assumptions about themselves and others, and it's almost impossible not to internalize and project those assumptions on others to some extent, because of that, it makes sense that queer and transgender and gender non-conforming people worry about people reading us the wrong way, because of how the majority often incorrectly reads our gender, or makes other assumptions based on the way our bodies are perceived.

  3. Albert Fox:

    It can be helpful, for example, for trans and queer kids who are worried about being tracked by their parents and for people who may be in a situation where they can't securely separate their computer from other people who can access the browser history.

  4. Tom Taylor:

    We didn't want this to be' DC Comics creates new queer Superman,' we want this to be' Superman finds himself, becomes Superman and then comes out,' and I think that's a really important distinction there.

  5. Eric Cervini:

    Q is...about creating a queer community that is devoted to making its members of any gender or background feel welcome.
