So what does it mean to be “queer”? Here’s the definition: An adjective used by some people, particularly younger people, whose sexual orientation is not exclusively heterosexual. Typically, for those who identify as queer, the terms lesbian, gay, and bisexual are perceived to be too limiting and/or fraught with cultural connotations they feel don’t apply to them.
And what does it mean to be an ethical non-monogamist? Her e’s the definition: Non-monogamy at its most basic is a relationship that involves more than two people. “Ethical” non-monogamy implies that all parties are being treated respectfully and that enthusiastic consent to the arrangement has been given by everyone involved.
