    Sometimes I hate telling people I'm gay because they expect me to be this stereotype. For instance, this girl in my class asked me if I had ever been to gay pride...when I told her that I don't march in parades she became visibly upset and went on to say "well my other gay friend took me to gay pride and we go shopping and stuff!" I suspect this person doesn't really give a shit about gay rights, she just thinks of gay guys as her entertainment. You're not gonna put me in a box, I am comfortable with my sexuality but gay pride is not my thing. I hate big crowds and loud, attention-seeking people.

    I used to think the same about gay pride when I was younger, which was pretty stupid because I had never been to gay pride. How can you judge something you have never experienced. When I finally went years and years later, I thought, wow, this is really cool. Don't knock it until you've actually experienced it.

    Just go to a Beyoncé concert. Pink doesn't sing or dance as well as Beyoncé. I highly doubt she'll ever sing for our President. Sorry, I'm obsessed with Beyoncé from her D3 days.

    I forget if I like this OP or not... Anyway it's never a nice feeling to be stereotyped. You don't have to tell strangers or acquaintances that you're gay. I wouldn't avoid all things gay though... I've been to NYC gay pride with friends and it's nice to experience. I don't care for overly catty and gossipy guys in real life -- on RJ they're entertaining and sometimes I make remarks I wouldn't say in person lol.

    Well of course not all gay guys are the same. Just don't pay mind to the girl and be you but I will agree on the gay pride thing. I haven't been to festival but I was at the parade and it's not as bad as you think. Plus, you see all kinds of people from different walks of life so don't buy into the hype of it only attracts catty, in your face types.

    I remember when I went to "National coming out day" a few years back and I had a talk with a really nice laid back guy. It was a fun experience and it shows you can't judge everyone. I'm not saying you have to go to pride or any other gay event but I'm just suggesting that you never know what you'll find there.

    I use to have a gay manager.
    One day they hired another gay man to work with him.
    Everyone in the office was chattering about how the two gay men were going to get it on.
    People were actually shocked that they barely got along.
    They thought, "How could this be? They're both gay!"

    Just be who you are and do what you like. Tell your friends that if Pride Parades, shopping and other 'stuff' are her thing then go do them but for you, it's NOT your thing. Nothing wrong with that!

    Probably not a comment to help Nearon and I would put it into the category of just rude and inconsiderate. Really? Was that a proper response?

    I find him irritating, so I made an appropriate comment. not particularly trying to help.

    Everyone is different. Gay, straight, bisexual, pansexual, animal, or Stevie Wonder. Everyone has their own identity. I don't look at stereotypes personally. I just look at people as they are. Cause everyone has different morals, values, tastes, looks, textures, toes etc.

    Just drink some water, let some aggressions out at the gym, eat some cereal, and enjoy life. Everyone is weird, unique, stupid, and psychotic in their own wonderful way. You psychotic fucks kanyelaugh.png

    All gay guys have self obsession, body dismorphia
    Self loathing behaviours, obsessed with cock size and
    How many notches they can rack up on their sexual
    conquest pole. Then there's the idiots who think that all
    Hetro's and the rest of the world should conform to there
    way of thinking and that the world should accept the wide
    Spread acceptance in the gay community of sexual practices
    that re-confirm all of the above assertions. Of course no hetro
    can ever challenge gays on this stuff coz we just scream or
    Blow the homophobia dog whistle to drown out the real questions
    being asked. Most of all please remember that if you think every straight guy can be turned, don't be surprised if you aren't able to live a life outside of The gay scene cause you can't get respect by disrespecting everyone else
