Queer Quotations

I would say that I'm a feminist theorist before I'm a queer theorist or a gay and lesbian theorist.
Judith Butler

Technology... is a queer thing. It brings you great gifts with one hand, and it stabs you in the back with the other.
Carrie Snow

The only queer people are those who don't love anybody.
Rita Mae Brown

Because I didn't have any queer, lesbian, female role models I hated my own femininity and had to look deep within myself to create an identity that worked for me. Pop culture just doesn't hand us enough variety to choose from.
