Elizabeth Edman, a lesbian priest, has written Queer Virtue, suggesting that “queer” means more than the obvious point that loving and having sex with someone who has the same sort of bits that you do can be a wonderful thing. She sees queerness as a challenge to all the binaries by which we believe we can divide humanity into jointly exhaustive and mutually exclusive categories and suggests that Christianity has the same message, as Jesus ruptured the binaries between God and human, living and dead, Jew and Gentile. (I encountered this same approach years ago as non-Aristotelian thinking and have tried to live by it ever since.) I was reminded of it by this excellent post by someone who, like me, is neither gay nor Christian and notes that of course some people are bisexual, and it would be utterly remarkable if that were not true.

Thanx to Carrying It with Me
