What does it mean to be queer enough? Kitten talks about her discomfort identifying as "queer" despite being attracted to people of many genders. Having experienced very little explicit discrimination on the basis of her sexual orientation, she wonders whether she is entitled to claim a queer identity and says she often feels left out in queer spaces. Other participants in this roundtable discussion share various understandings of queerness, their own experiences in queer communities, and what "queer" means to them. Topics include what oppression can look like, in-group/out-group dynamics, the complexity of identity, bonding through shared suffering, and differences between being an ally to vs. being a member of a community, and why a queer identity matters. Rebecca points out that some queer communities' efforts to be "post-gender" can also perpetuate unacknowledged bi-phobia.
