I have to say, I respectfully disagree with Michelle’s blog and Anastacia.

The reason that we call gay guys “queens” isn’t because it’s a derogatory term, it is a description of a particular set of gay behaviors. When gay men act in a way that assumes that they are royalty and that the rest of the world is shit, then we call them queens. When a person is being “queenie”, they’re acting like a gay ass.

Being gay doesn’t give you license to claim some sort of protection from language that describes your behavior. When I dance, people call me white, when I can’t get out of a chair, people make fat jokes, when I speak Spanish with a lisp, guys call me maricon. And when you prance around a room with limp wristed arrogant disregard for the people you are supposed to be serving, you’re a queen.
