    When two guys are doing it, is it really sex? What do you call it?

    I've mentioned getting this question before. That I wouldn't really classify as "funny", but typical of the faulty knowledge many straights, even educated ones, have about gays.

    "How long is it before a gay person gets AIDS?"

    It wasn't a question, more like a proclamation.

    A str8 guy I worked with took it upon himself to inform me that the reason guys are gay is because they're afraid to eat pussy.

    Having done a few things in my misspent youth, I can tell you that's about the only part of a chick I'm NOT afraid of!

    Back when gays lived in the ghetto and once I ventured out to straightsville
    Once in awhile so called liberal minded straight people would make the declaration.

    I know a guy in... (insert far away city)
    He's gay, his name is .... (insert male name)
    Do you know him?

    REALLY ... SERIOUSLY ????

    Ahh those halcyon day of yesteryear

    There are so many. The weirdest one was: "How long does it take to get AIDS?"

    Same as me. Scroll back 3 from your post. These Republicans, Conservatives and Evangelical Christians really work hard to demonize us gays, and the results are seen in questions like these.

    Here's one I'd forgotten, from years ago. A female sales rep came to Wilton Manors, and stopped into Georgi's Alibi around noon. When George still owned it. She wanted lunch, that they served.

    I was having lunch, too, at the bar. My husband worked in Fort Lauderdale at that time, so I often ate alone. She sat next to me and said hello, and asked me if the stories she'd heard about Wilton Manors were true, mostly a gay place.

    I replied yes, most of the guys around her, whom I know, are gay. So is the bartender. "Really??? They don't look gay!"

    "Trust me, this is a gay club. But straights are welcome. I'm gay myself."

    "You are??? You don't act or sound gay!" I assured her I was, and told her that stereotypes about gays were false, meant to degrade us. And then I asked her what she wanted to do in WM. She told me, so I gave her a list of potential contacts. Business names, locations, their owners and manager names as contacts. Gold information in her work.

    She thanked me, still not believing I'm gay. I wanted to make a good impression on a straight person. The chances it made any permanent difference are slim. She probably voted for Trump, and will support Republican anti-gay legislation.

    Today I've kinda written-off accommodation, education & reasonable negotiation, and think only stronger confrontation will produce results. Why not? Everything else has failed with these people. Can't be worse than where we're finding ourselves today in the increasingly regressive US.

    What does a guy have sex with another guy feels? This was asked by my mother of all people. I was explaining to her what 'gay' means.

    The straight world is obsessed with gay anal sex. They can't imagine we have sex other ways. Or that there is something between us called "love". But that doesn't fit the homophobic narrative of the Right.

    Yes but in my mother's instance it was all about curiosity. She didn't even know until I came out that there is something called homosexuality.

    "Oh, you're gay? I knew a gay guy in the town I used to live in... His name was Joe... Do you know him?"
