General | Latest Info

A Queerplatonic relationship is one which is more intense and intimate than what most people regard as friendship, not fitting the traditional romantic couple model or traditional bounds of friendship. It can be characterized by strong bond, affect, and emotional commitment not regarded by those involved as something beyond friendship. It is a so - called Platonic relationship, so it does not comprehend sexuality / eroticism or romance, although some people involved in light or non - traditional romantic relationships might also categorize themselves as being QueerPlatonic. As non - romantic relationship,sss people in QueerPlatonic relationships are not restricted to having just one QueerPlatonic partner. People involved do not have to identify as queer, it is a type of relationship experienced by and available to anybody regardless of their sexual orientation, romantic orientation, or monogamy. People involved in QueerPlatonic relationships may consider themselves partners, life - partners, couple, triad, or any other term that implies the relationship is meaningful, commit, and intimate. Because QueerPlatonic relationships are not based on exclusivity, participants of relationship may have multiple QPPs and exclusive relationships with third parties not involved in QR. In her book Minimizing marriage, contemporary philosopher Elizabeth Brake talks about a concept that is adverse to QueerPlatonic thought, naming it amatonormativity: disproportionate focus on marital and amorous love relationships as special sites of value, and the assumption that romantic love is a universal goal. Amatonormativity consists in assumption that central, exclusive, amorous relationship is normal for humans, in that it is a universally shared goal, and that such relationship is normative, in that it should be aimed at in preference to other relationship types. Queerplatonic partners are sometimes referred to as zucchini. As in, they re my zucchini. This was originally a joke within the aromantic asexual community, underscoring the lack of words in mainstream relationship discourse to signify meaningful relationships that do not follow standard and expect sexual / romantic norms, and frustration with erasure of other kinds of intimacy, which were perceived as equally valuable to sexual / romantic model. Squish, which is used as the Platonic version of crush, is another term to describe partners in QueerPlatonic relationships. Mostly used to describe the feeling of wanting to have a QueerPlatonic relationship with somebody, this term can also be used inside relationship as an alternative to zucchini. It can be used as a verb as well as a noun. Due to controversy surrounding reclamation of queer in some spaces, alternative to QueerPlatonic is quasiplatonic or quirkyplatonic. In some situations, people involved can show physical affection such as cheek kisses, pecks on lips, holding hands, sitting on each other's lap, seeing each other naked, cuddling and sleeping together. To QPPs, these activities are not necessarily romantic nor sexual / erotic.
