    I often find myself making this list mentally (and even occasionally literally). I know there are lots of stereotypes out there about "the gays," and many of them can be accurate for some, but not all of us. What are the misconceptions people have about you, or about "the gays" in general?

    Here's a few of mine:

    Just Because You're Gay...

    ... doesn't mean you can dance.


    ... doesn't mean you have style.


    ... doesn't mean you hate sports.


    ... doesn't mean you're a slut.

    I 100% agree with you.

    Doesn't mean you are a socialist either.

    Doesn't mean you love shopping.

    Doesn't mean you feel threatend by people actually born with status.

    Doesn't mean you are narcissistic either.

    You can be a regular guy, who just loves other regular guys too.

    Doesn't mean you can't talk about anything other than sex.

    Doesn't meant you feel threatened by butch men.

    Doesn't mean you can't be a pure homosexual, and be a man too.

    Doesn't mean you can't be happy either.

    Doesn't mean you owe all other homosexuals something.

    Doesn't mean you can be a gay republican and be self loving, and have pride too.

    Doesn't mean you got molested

    Doesn't mean you don't love Jesus

    Doesn't mean you are less of a person

    Yeah, that one really pisses me off. Had my brother once say he'd never let a gay man around his kids. And he only has daughters! Douchebag...

    Also I'll add

    ... doesn't mean you hate your family, organized religion, or the military.

    doesn't mean you're "happy" or funny.

    doesn't mean you're all that sensitive.

    doesn't mean you're everybody's bestest, most fabulous friend ever!

    doesn't mean that you have a coterie of sassy girl friends with whom you have some great rapport.

    doesn't mean that you're especially troubled, or broken-hearted, or lonely.

    Not that there's something awful or embarrassing about all the homos out there who do fit every one of the stereotypes. Because if we asserted that, then we'd be little better than the chauvinistic, judgmental fucks who do their best to make us miserable for not being 'normal.'

    Just because you're gay:

    doesn't mean you are into art and antiques.

    doesn't mean that you only live in the gay ghettos near downtown.

    that you only live on the coasts.

    that you hate the American heartland.

    I agree... this is why I hate gay guys who embody EVERY stereotype. It's fucking ridiculous. I honestly get really angry. For example, this dude at the bar a couple weeks ago (gay bar, but a laid back chill one - no dance club) was probably about 6'2'', maybe 120 lbs, wearing pink sandals and girl jeans... looked like a little makeup as well. That alone wouldn't make me angry, just annoy me a bit... but then he started flipping out like a little bitch on the phone, screaming in his lispy voice (you know, because everyone wants to hear him yelling at more than likely equally femtastic boyfriend because we all care what he has to say) and pouting, basically throwing a fit you'd expect to see from a 4 year old girl and disrupting everybody. After getting off the phone he then announces to the bar, "Well I'm single for the night, who wants to get laid?!" Holy Fuck. It took every ounce of control I could find deep inside of me not to go knock him the fuck you. Ehhhh... I just shuddered in disgust thinking about him smoking his cig all sassy-like.icon_evil.gif

    i understand your frustration when you feel like certain very visible stereotypically faggy gays are giving others a negative impression of what it means to be gay, but one of the great things about the gay community is its diversity. there's room for flamers and drag queens as well as frat boys and athletes. kind of like how in the african american community there's room for the obamas AND the flavor flavs. and if it wasn't for some flamers and drag queens that said "enough is enough" and fought back at stonewall there might not even be a forum like this to openly discuss our sexuality. just sayin...
