Here’s a FUN game Out of the above 5 people how many do you think are gay and how many do you think are straight (Strictly based on appearance… The answer is below)
*Gay Myths Exposed
Why is it that the popular consciousness seems to believe certain things about gay people and our relationships? Like the way a woman can be perfectly friendly and affectionate around me, that is before she realizes that I’m gay, then the second she finds out she feels the need to tell me all about her boyfriend, or how much she loves men, like I’m going to jump her if she doesn’t make that clear. That’s great, I’m happy for you, go men. It’s OK; I promise I wasn’t hitting on you. I’m with a woman I’m incredibly in love with, and honestly, even if I wasn’t, you’re not my type.
In the same way that heterosexuals don’t find themselves uncontrollably attracted to every man/woman who crosses their path, nor do the gays. I wish. It would have made being single a lot more fun
Another favorite of mine is the assumption that just because you happen to be gay, you’re automatically probably kinky as well. This is one myth that seems to be propagated as much inside the gay community as outside of it. Yes we’ve been together for two years; no we don’t have an open relationship. No, not even kissing. That seems to be surprising to a lot of people, gay and straight. It’s one thing to be flirty and social, it’s a whole other bag to bring in a third. Believe me I’m not knocking it in the slightest; everybody is more than welcome to their kicks. I’ll admit that it does seem to be a pit stop on the path to figuring out that we may be gay for a lot of people. But my point is that I don’t believe any of us would assume that a straight couple went in for threesomes on the basis that they’d (gasp) been together for two whole years.
Equally the ‘femme’ lesbian in the dress is no more or less likely to be less gay, or less assertive as the gay woman with short hair and muscles, who in turn is no more likely to know how to use power tools, or fix your car as the next person. Gay men are not all effeminate and theatrical, and the last to be picked at sports; if you believe that you should visit my gym just once
Being gay is not a ‘lifestyle choice’. There is more and more scientific evidence to show that it’s likely to do with the differing levels of hormones that a baby is exposed to in the womb. Meaning we were genuinely born this way and consequently it is a part of who we are on a fundamental level, it is not what defines us and how we choose to live our lives. If you’re heterosexual that doesn’t automatically determine how you think, or how you decorate your house. Whether you are black white, brown or purple that doesn’t mean for a second that you think and feel the same way as everybody else who has a matching skin tone right?
In the same way, us gays are as diverse and varied as anybody else; there are things that unite us; the fact that learning to accept that we romantically desire a person of the same sex and the fact that there can still be many societal obstacles to living and loving who we choose are two of the most significant. But there are gay Republicans as well as Democrats, and there are those of us that really just want to get married and have babies together and be just as ‘traditional’ as anybody else.
So while we’re flattered that you’d quite like to experience ‘swinging’, we are not the couple to do that with I can help you figure out how to put your furniture together though
The answer, drum roll pplleeaassee- 5 gay, 0 straight… Tricky, right?
