Queer: a state of mind accompanied by behavior that is unable or unwilling to comply with socially normal sexual behavior. The male actress, required by edict that forbids females on stage, is queer. The Roman man performing cunnilingus on a woman was thought of as queer because he allowed her to penetrate him. In the Iceland Sagas is the story of a man who’s tunic had been cut in such a way it would droop and expose a collar bone. His wife was also called queer because she wore her britches like a man. The more extreme a society’s gender expectations are, the more queer the revolutionary will seem.
