Tiffany Cagides ID: 5438810 September 6, 2017 WST3641 Discussion 1 1.The term “queer” represents inclusivity to me. I believe that it can be an  acceptable blanket term for people to use to describe the community they are a  part of. To me, people that have very fluid identities, don’t adhere to a specific  gender or haven’t necessarily worked out how they identify themselves can use  the word “queer” to include all facets of their identity.  I think sometimes in the processing of labeling oneself it can be hard to fit into a  specific label, especially gender fluid or sexually fluid people. The word “queer”  actively implies that gender and sexuality can indeed be fluid, the way it is for  many people. Albeit its controversial background, I believe taking back the word and using it as  an identifier is a powerful move and is how the LGBTQIA community stripped it  completely of its negative connotation. That in and of itself is an incredible

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
