What do you think are some of the most incorrect gay stereotypes out there?
Trying to fan some life in this forum huh?
I was gonna say it.
Anytime big boy
I'll make a go at this one...
- all gay men are flaming queens.
- all gay men are perverts.
- all lesbians can build you a house with their bare hands.
I dunno about the one about gay men having great fashion sense, because I dress better than all but one of my straight friends and there's so much evidence in support of the argument.
All gay men are whiney
all gay men can't do any hard physical work themselves (sissy sterotype)
all lesbians you meet in real life are butch
All gay men only want sex in a relationship.
I dunno about the crossdressers being perverts... it seems so true that most crossdressers do it for sexual pleasure and arousal- those that do it to try to become a woman almost always fall into the transgendered classification (well, I'm doing drag for money, but I'm getting desperate here )
Gay men shouldn't be into Cars, or Planes or anything else too "Manly"
That we're into boys. WTF is up with that?
That we're all hairdressers or interior designers (I'm a mechanic myself....hmmm by their logic I can't possibly be gay).
That we're all rich. We'll there's a small bit of truth to that one I suppose.
That we're out to recruit. (If only that was possible!)
Yeah, I get the "into boys" one a fair bit too.
All gay men love Barbra Streisand..
Hey now...I've got to admit, she was good in Yentyl. She does have a good set of vocal chords but damn, that bitch is butt-ugly!
Hey! We can all build houses with our bare hands!
Yes. Yes she is.
Oh, another favourite of mine...
So who plays the female?
Mind you it can be kind of true...
My boss once asked me if I'm the man, or the woman. I didn't really know how to answer, so I asked if the woman can be a she-male....hehe
You forgot the longest standing gay stereotype--
That all gays have AIDS.
I fankly dont care for the steretypes. Some of them may be true for one person but not for the next.
One thing stands above all. Bing gay is the best type of birth control.
i hate when a guy says that they "want" lezbians. so what, they dont want you, so why do you want them?
not really stereotype, but when they say "can i watch?"
the aids one is common
the interior design and stylist/hairdresser is so common, not to mention the ass end of jokes all day everyday.
OMG you've got it right there... i get that one all the time...
I usually have this conversation or IM 3-5 times a day...
"you're hot, single?"
"No, I have a girlfriend"
"cool so you two wanna come over"
"no thanks, i'm a lesbian"
"AWESOME wanna have a threesome!"
"no i'm sorry i said lesbian, you have me confused with a Bi-girl"
"no actually, Bi-girls = possible fun for you... Lesbians= no sexual interest in men"
"whatever, you dykes just need to find the right man to change your mind... blah blah blah (insert other moronic comments here)"
i also hate when guys go on and on about wanting to find a hot lesbian... NO boys you want to find a hot Bi-girl because we lesbians don't want to find you
Dont worry. I doubt ill ever ask you for that.
...well, you forget that the common (mis-) conception of lesbians is that they like women as a response to a bad relationship with a man, or that lesbians like women because they haven't found a good man yet. Most heterosexual men have no idea that lesbianism has nothing to do with them.
Even the original script of The L Word had Jenny being raped by her live in boyfriend, Tim, and that spawned her lesbian-ish sexual desire. Reaction of the organized queers quickly squashed that, and so we got a rewrite. (Just like the character 'Kit', played by Pam Grier. started out a bisexual S&M...before they revamped her.)
