The q-word? Really? 

@janacatti @SallyStrange This is it exactly. You can find TERF blogs going back to 2011-2012 discussing ways to foment transphobia and biphobia among younger people, especially on Tumblr, and the resurgence of "queer is a slur" can be directly traced to their astroturfing on Tumblr and Twitter. The idea has always been to make it harder to include bi and trans people under the same umbrella as gay and lesbian people.

Making a first person viewed adventure game wasn't the obvious choice, so we created a document to educate everyone why it was right for the game. We even took pictures of @keeyaaaa@twitter.com and @residentveg@twitter.com outside in the grounds but I sadly can't find those

More about "queer" 

Thanks to @red_priest for this post.

"“Queer” came to mean an opposition to assimilation - to straight culture, capitalism, patriarchy, and to upper class gays and lesbians who wanted to throw the rest of us under the bus for a seat at that table - and a solidarity among those marginalized for their sexuality/gender id/presentation."
