What is 'queer'?

Hi all,

Someone i know recently said that they were 'queer' because, even though zie is heterosexual, zie is poly and into BDSM. On the one hand, this makes sense to me if 'queer' is synonymous with 'non-heteronormative'. On the other hand, up until this, if someone told me they were queer, i would have taken that to mean 'non-heterosexual'.

i was wondering what other people here think?
