How is it a "strange or odd from a conventional viewpoint; unusually different; singular", and what is it that you find "queer" about us? As a gay person, I agree with all nine examples. So, how am I a "queer" again?
Way beneath you.
Wow, I guess the joke, which is having this sense of justice while being 'queer' (a common word for GLBT to self-identify) just went right over your head.
Do you live in Salt Lake? You should try San Francisco or New Orleans, where people are not so stiff-necked.
The important thing to remember about American history is that it is fictional, a charcoal-sketched simplicity for the children or the easily bored. For the most part it is uninspected, unimagined, unthought, a representative of the thing and not the thing itself. It is a fine fiction... Neil Gaiman 'American Gods'
"Ignorance of ignorance, then, is that self-satisfied state of unawareness in which man, knowing nothing outside the limited area of his physical senses, bumptiously declares there is nothing more to know! He who knows no life save the physical is merely ignorant; but he who declares physical life to be all-important and elevates it to the position of supreme reality--such a one is ignorant of his own ignorance." - Manly Palmer Hall
