Why do people (straight people) think that homosexuality is just about SEX and DRUGS?

    We have been a gross subject to them and that's why we've been fighting for centuries.

    Because heterosexuality is all about sex and drugs? Have you ever watched MTV?

    Homosexuality is not at all about SEX and DRUGS....It's all about HEART and SOUL icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_twisted.gificon_twisted.gificon_twisted.gif

    It deflects attention away from themselves and their behaviour. icon_wink.gif

    Because other people's sex lives are always more fascinating/lurid/disgusting.

    Because they can't see past sex.

    Because people like the Bachmanns and Focus on the Family work day and night to spread lies and divide Americans.

    Because scare/outrage is a strong political tool that's easy to use.

    Because the media always latch onto the outrageous, even when it isn't outrageous.

    And because they don't personally know any gay people.

    The drug part is pretty prevalent in the gay community. As many straight clubs as I have been to, I have never seen the amount of drugs that I have witnessed in gay clubs.

    Hell, two weeks ago I went out. I passed the deejay booth, which was pretty open, and watched a guy do a line.

    heck i'm a gay person myself and from what i hear and read of the gay experience sex and drugs do seem to be at the forefront. why do we therefore expect straights to think any less. can't have our cake and eat it too you know.

    Stereotypical gay is drugs and sex. We yearn for acceptance. We don't get it in society, family, ourselves. We don't want to be rejected so the gays share a common bond of sex and drugs to feel like they belong to something.

    It's just that more of us (gays) stick around longer in that scene because gay relationships just don't work.

    I've seen the straights start to trickle out of the scene/phase (get married or knocked up) ~22-24.

    The smart gays start to trickle out (careers) ~24-26.

    The drunks stay around for the long haul. There's a bigger % of gays because they don't have kids or a life to be accountable for.

    This is just my experience.

    Green_Panda saidA lot of my neighbours only "see gay people" when the news shows the Toronto Pride Parade. They think all gays are like that all the time.


    Conversely, mine don't at all, and I live in a very Conservative riding. The support they collectively gave when we got married in the backyard was very intense.

    Indeed. Televisions have a much bigger responsibility of how we are being portrayed. Nobody wants to get there and see the reality, but everybody is curious with what's been shown.

    Like Green panda said,all they tend to see are 'gay' men dancing in the streets dressed up on something like London Pride.The media seem to show us that way.
    I think there`s also an anxiety about unconstrained male sexuality,it`s 'predatoriness';from a traditional viewpoint,separated from procreation;rather as recreation,'lifestyle'.
    Drugs play a role as well,as I`ve found them common among other gay men.
