Definition of Queer

Queer: Although defined as a "man that likes man," in the modern west, under the politics of LGBT where the distinction between 'man' and 'male' is formally negated (but not informally), the actual and original meaning of a queer is "a strongly feminine gendered male." In the past, such males were seen as seeking receptive sex from men conducting themselves as whores.

Under the original gender system, a feminine gendered male is not a 'man.' He is part of third gender. (S)he is also referred to as a 'male with a female nature' (Tritiya prakriti).

A Queer includes a male that adopts several female gender roles, dresses, etc. and includes crossdressers and transvestites apart from gays. However, a Queer may be distinguished from other identities as follows:

Straight-acting males: Straight acting gays are males who like men who are mildly feminine gendered and they prefer to hide their femininity and act straight, without actually striving for social manhood. Queers are strongly feminine gendered and usually partially or fully conduct themselves as females.

If the politics of manhood is not there, the straight acting males would be part of the 'manhood' space, and would denounce the 'gay' label. But, even under normal circumstances most queers would seek a different identity from the 'manhood' identity.

Transexual males: Transexual males are males that are feminine gendered to the extreme and are not comfortable with a female body, and usually seek to get rid of their male organ, either through castration or through sex change.

Queers are comfortable with their male body.

Further information:

Since traditionally the gender role of the third gender has been to seek receptive sex from men (and this is the reason why receptive sex has been so stigmatized for men since the ancient times), Queers in the past had been defined as "feminine males that seek men." Feminine males that were interested in women usually were either invisible, or they passed off as 'homosexuals' or sometimes forced themselves to seek receptive sex from men. Most Queer males interested in women -- although, third gender in nature -- were counted as 'men' since manhood came to be hinged upon penetrating (and indirectly, desiring) women.

Today, in the west, many feminine heterosexuals are opting for the "Queer Heterosexual" identity leaving the 'straight' identity.

Heterosexuality inherently Queer

It would be pertinent to add here that, irrespective of what the politics of manhood makes it seem through social engineering, Heterosexuality is inherently Queer. It is not a manly quality, unlike what is propagated by the West. Men are never heterosexual by nature. In most mammalian species, only the transgendered mammalian males are heterosexual.

By heterosexual, we don't mean the usual definition followed in the west, which includes any male that penetrates women or claims to desire women.

Queer: Indian Gays

Queer: Heterosexual but certainly not straight

the West has cleverly defined men's space in terms of heterosexuality. That is to say that West says "Straight" (which has the connotation of being normal, majority, right thing to do or be) = Heterosexual. We have to unlearn this conditioning of the term and redefine straight for what it is: regular, majority or men, who are -- as far as their nature is concerned -- definitely not heterosexual, even if they pretend to be so, all their lives.

Queer: A heterosexual male

In nature, only transgendered males are heterosexual.

The only valid social divisions of humans are based on gender, as: Man, woman or third gender. There cannot be any other division that goes against this basic division. Sexual identities are invalid.

Queer people are queer irrespective of what their sexual orientation is. They may be attracted to women, men or other members of the third gender or any combination of them. It doesn't make a difference. What matters is that they have male bodies and female souls (or vice versa).

It is also worth noting that almost 90% of Queer people are heterosexuals, not homosexuals.

Homosexuals form only 10% of all Queer people.

Queers: Hijras

Since Hijras were more or less thrown out of the society and they led highly secretive lives; and in medieval times queers were castrated and made into eunuchs in order to fit into the then idea of a third gender, people in India today believes that Hijra, eunuch and third gender are one and the same things.
However, Hijras are not necessarily eunuchs, and despite the Hijra space being a space for homosexuals, many heterosexuals also join the Hijra cult.
Hijra is basically about being partly male and partly female. It mostly involves people who have male bodies but a female soul.

Since homosexuals are used for third gender, men who like men cannot be called 'homosexuals'.

Also, all men have a sexual feelings for other men... in such a case, it is futile to call some people 'homosexuals', because then everyone would be 'homosexual', which is ridiculous.

To be a man (straight man in the West) essentially involves having an interest in other men, and you can't theoretically or practically have a label for people who have such an interest.

Queer: A western homosexual boy

The word homosexual has been misleading defined by the Western society as a "man who is attracted to another man".

However in practice it is used for third gender males who like men. A term which is used for people of the third gender cannot be used for men, without blurring basic biological and social differences.

The word homosexual was invented for members of the third gender who liked men, although the western science called these people "men", they were not really men -- but female souls in male bodies, a concept that the West doesn't quite understand, after centuries of persecution of such people by Christianity.
