So, have you ever been asked what we might consider to be a ridiculous question about being gay?

    most of fine have been poised by friends/family - for example, the time my sister told me that gay men want to be women and that lesbians want to be men. I told her that wasn't true and she wouldn't be dissuaded. Finally after going around and around for a while, I said, "if they wanted to be women they wouldn't be into dick!"

    There are soooo many misconceptions out there...

    People try to figure out who the "bottom/reciever" is and who the top/giver is. They cringe when you tell them you both like it!

    Hey Nickster,

    There's all the usual stereotypical ones.

    All gay men:
    walk with a swish
    have a limp wrist
    don't like sports
    talk like a girl


    One fact that many straight people do not know is, not all gay men have anal sex.

    I myself recall hearing that terms, "rims/rimming," and having NO idea what they meant, and all I could think of was a jingle I heard on television when I was little, something like, "fill it to the rim with Brim" (coffee commercial I think)

    One time a friend asked me a series of hypothetical questions:

    1. Would you give up a kidney for your mom? Yea
    2. Would you give up your life for your mom? Yea
    3. If you can give up your life, why can't you give up being gay?

    I never really got offended by it as much as the friend I was with who overheard the questions, and all my other friends who heard the story from her.

    The friend asking these hypothetical questions kind of asks ridiculous questions in general anyways.

    Yeah, and we all just LOOOOOOVE musicals....

    Personally, I only like a number of musicals that I can count on one hand. The rest, I don't really care for. I'm not THAT gay....

    Before the hate-mail and flame-wars start (no pun intended), that last statement was a joke.

    I was asked if I like wearing women's clothing, because she apparently thought all gay guys do drag. This came from a woman who never liked to wear a dress. Go figure.

    The main one for me is "oh, you should go out with my [other] gay friend XXXX".

    XXXX is secretly a ho, and not hot! Do you fancy all members of the opposite sex? No!

    Top 3 stupid Q's:

    Q(from a very pretty Doc student): That's disgusting, how can you possibly like men?

    Response(Me): Well don't you like them?

    Q(from my cousin): Like, when you're in bed how do you figure out who does what, who goes first?

    Response(Me): How does your wife know? (quickly followed by very offended look and silent treatment for the rest of the evening)

    Q(From hotel desk clerk - after I just kissed my husband in front of her): Ohh, there must be a mistake, don't you want two beds?

    Response(Me): Not unless we break the first one.

    R

    When I came out my mum said
    "But you'll end up alone when your old!"

    Funny story - famous drag queen in Australia got asked on TV:
    "But where do you put...it..."
    "Open your mouth and I'll show ya!" she replied.

    Years ago I took a straight friend into a gay bar in Memphis. He looked around anxiously, then leaned into my ear..."but these guys aren't bad looking". "Yeah, I said, I know." "But I thought the only reason guys were gay is if they were too ugly to attract women."

    AAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

    I get amused every time someone asks me which one is the woman in my relationship. Silly straight people.

    moi: "What a coincidence, but aren't we all! Small world idn't?"
    woman at wedding reception: "So what's you're favourite opera?"

    'Cosi fan Tutti',by the way, but its not like I ever walk about with a folding fan in hand whilst whistling Wagnerian leitmotifs.

    Poor things. They're really quite harmless, really.

    What I found interesting, an ouuta shape ugly guy tell me in the gym "I hope there are no gay guys in here because I hate it when they stare at me." What is this guy thinking?? If woman don't even look at him, must be the guys that do. Gay men are more picky about body and face than most woman I have met. ( This coming from a guy who pays $$ for sex with woman!!

    moi: "whuh?! do you mean like richard simmons? the village people? what's a piano bar?" **clenches jaw and smiles.**

    Q: "How do you know you're gay if you've never been with a man?" (or, alternately, "...a woman")

    A: Did you know you were straight before your first time?

    The sad thing is, I've gotten this question more often from gay guys than from straight people.

    A girl I used to work with asked me one day, "So when did you become gay?" I just kind of looked at her and said,"You don't become gay." She then realized what she said and told me that she didn't mean it like that. I thought it was quite humorous though. My mom actually asked me, "Well, how do you know you're gay?" I quickly shot back with, "How do you know you're straight?"
