Homosexuality has many different stereotypes. Please give an example of 2 stereotypes that society has created towards homosexuality and how you feel about them.
NickoftheNorth saidIMO, this is a more "real" stereotype that you are more likely to encounter when on the Net:
The Apologist: gay man who expresses a perpetual need to disassociate himself from and apologize for "other" gays; common traits include self-identification with the phrases "non-scene" and "non-femme" (or some approximation of that phrase), a unsolicited rejection of one's prior hook-up / one-night-stand life and a current self-aggrandizing idolization of LTR-dom and "real" relationships, and a continual defense of gaydom toward the perceivably straight (usually by villifying or demeaning the "other" gay men).
I had this beautifully written* prior to a BSOD (blue screen of death) and this but a mere attempted replication.
* = I'm exhausted and increasingly sick; humility can go f*ck itself with the eight-incher I've yet to take
Another stereotype would be:
The Sexual Predator: gay man who leers creepily toward younger men, particularly teenagers (often for the purpose of recruiting them into homosexuality, though largely because he seeks sexual satisfaction from their humiliation and abuse and is therefore depraved); he's most likely in his late thirties or older; check out Boys Beware for a PSA (public service announcement) on this gay stereotype.
dhinkansas saidIt's possible for gay guys to live in regular places and have a seconhand sofa in the basement.
