Critiques of Queer

In the last workshop I briefly mentioned queer scholarship and we'll be examining it much more this Thursday but John Lauritsen has just sent a link out on one academic/activist email list citing a number of works that counter queer and a brief paragraph explaining his own rejection of the term. As a 28 year old I don't have the "history" that John had and my perspective is a UK one. Nonetheless, I don't understand how 'gay' can be OK and 'queer' not when gay has become the dominant term of abuse in the UK - beyond its original sexual meaning. Nonetheless, the link is really useful link and you may all disagree with me!
