    But masculine behavior makes it hard to people to believe me being a gay as per the stereotypes

    When i tell my friends & my girls around too
    they're like what

    "stop joking Sam !"

    "enough of the lie now say stop lying"

    etc etc ...

    Does this happen to u too ?

    It used to happen, but now most of society has come to realize that not all gays act like girls.

    That said, I can now tell a straight guy I'm gay (err, have a boyfriend) and he doesn't even flinch. It's become a non-issue.

    If you woulda asked me this question 10 or 20 years ago, I woulda had a different answer.

    You live in one of the few homophobic places left in Canada, therefore your option is null and void by default. icon_wink.gif

    I actually told one of my new coworkers a few days ago "dude, you spent nine months trying to get out of that nasty thing, why would you ever want to go back in it?" icon_lol.gif

    You live in a country that's homophobic and they don't want to believe that somebody they know could ever possibly be gay, that's why.

    edit: oh right this cunt has me on ignore.

    Ive had gay guys ask me "Are you straight?"
    I guess I'm suppose to behave a certain way for them, for me to be obviously gay. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Around the city I live, people are pretty clued in, but I work a lot in the suburbs. When in that professional office environment, people don't usually have a clue. I used to say that I would have to dance on the conference table in a tutu to get people to believe I'm gay.

    Yes, but at the same time I get a little annoyed because that usually means that the person saying only has a flamboyant feminine guy in their head when they think about a gay person.

    Every batch of new employees at the place I work have to be told I'm gay.
    But they just think I have downs before they are told that.

    I've never told anyone I''m gay, as I'm bi not gay, when I tell people that I'm bi they sometimes find it hard to believe but then simply shrug it off as my being a bit of a slut who doesn't care what sex my conquest is.................. which usually isn't true!

    Yes, and I love breaking those stereo types. I drive a F250 diesel truck, live in my fifth wheel RV full time and travel the country. The parks I enjoy staying at are more remote and tend to have some bubba types in their fifties and older. After several weeks of chatting over beer, talking about travels, hunting, fishing, hiking and other things they are shocked to learn that my trips into the city are to meet guys.

    The most incredulous reaction was also the most disheartening to me. I went to donate blood right after 9/11, walking in with my black leather Harley jacket, riding boots, and carrying my motorcycle helmet. I guess to the screener that made me look straight, though another gay probably would have seen my look as being more Tom of Finland.

    The screener was quickly going through his long list of verbal questions about diseases and other personal history, my answers all no's until he got to "Are you homosexual?"

    "Yes." He shot me a surprised look, and paused awkwardly.

    "Let me ask that question again. Are - you - a - homo - sexual?"

    "Yes."

    "Perhaps you don't understand the word. Homosexual means a man who has sex with other men."

    "Yes, I'm a homosexual, I have sex with other men."

    He entered my response into his computer, and told me I was barred for life from donating blood, and it couldn't be appealed. I was naive, thought I actually had to have a disease to be banned, and I'd never had an STD in my life, still haven't to this day.

    But just being gay in the US earns you the presumption of being HIV positive. I would have lied if I'd known the consequences, as I'm sure many gays do, invalidating this self-reporting question as a means of protecting the blood supply, which it doesn't do. That was the first and only time in my life I felt ashamed to be gay, leaving there feeling rather dirty. icon_sad.gif

    I think most blood banks in the world don't accept donations from gay people, it's a sad truth that gay people have statistically more std's.
