1. Gay men always want to be the center of the attention.
2. Gay men have oral fixation.
3. Gay men roll like girls.
4. Gay men are mom's boy.
5. Gay men think sports are boring.
6. Gay men are obsessed with fashion.
7. Gay men love to dance.
8. Gay men love fistining ass.
9. Gay men are incompetent running machinery.
10. Gay men families are the last to know.
11. Gay men are clean.
12. Gay men lack strong male models.
13. Gay men always have a trust girl-pal by side.
14. Gay men have ??? wrist.(you can help me on this one)
15. Gay men are catty.
16. Gay men are drama queens.
17. Gay men pepper their lives with Pop culture references.
18. Gay men are into watersport.

Erm, who cares whether we fit silly stereotypes or not? I'd be willing to bet that most straight men, lesbians, straight women, TG's, TV's, TS's, intersex persons, and every other group you can think of would match as many of those stereotypes as I do.

There are only two or three that I can relate to. I value education, I like things clean, and I'm not great at running machinery (grew up on a farm, go figure).

Just goes to show you how wrong the typical gay stereotypes are.

Most people, gay or straight, can identify with at least a few things on this list.

Oh, come on Das, can't you at least watch to pick out the cute athletes??

Seriously, my partner and I are both big sports fans. We actually follow the game (or race in the case of NASCAR). The cute athletes are just a bonus!

Hmmm... there's one 'stereotypel everyman falls into, whether he be gay/bi/str8:

men who like sex

fortunately, when you're gay, you don't have to deal with the stereotype most women fall into:

women who say 'no'

Maybe.

Nope. Mainly because I'm white and have no rhythm.

8. Gay men love fistining ass.

Oh, now we're shifting gears. Jeebus ...

And that would be a "no."

9. Gay men are incompetent running machinery.

I ran a printing press for years. My prior operator (straight) got his thumb caught in the ink rollers and you could still see the impression of his thumb for years afterward.

Not since I realised that the football players were wearing padding on their behinds. Just drained the fun out of it.

Now, I do enjoy playing soccer. Minimal padding, and the third-finest bodies. Soccer players' bodies are only bested by those of swimmers and ballet dancers.

:P

Oh, I guess I do have an oral fixation.

It's not because I'm gay, though. It's because I'm quitting smoking.

Do you still smoke when you drink? I do...and I realize that should stop.

No, but I chew twice as much of the gum and need to hold a cinnamon stick. People give me funny looks because they think it's one of those little brown cigars. Smells better, though.

I should be clear; I'm giving up smoking, not nicotine. Quitting nicotine while dissertating would be a bad, bad idea!

Okay. I can be a cheerleader for your quitting. After all, folks here are cheering me on for the dissertation; it's only fair.

Drinking and not smoking is harder, but it can be done, especially if your drinking buddies are on board with helping you. I use the following mantra from time to time; maybe it'll help you: "A cigarette would really be good right now, IF I were a smoker!"

I use the gum and cinnamon, as described above. And there's over a carton of cigarettes on my desk. Having them there helps me to not smoke them, oddly enough.(When I don't need the crutch anymore, I'm going to give them to the secretary at school. A carton costs $70 up here.)

The gum -- 4mg pieces cost only a few dollars more than the 2mg pieces. So, I get the 4mg ones and cut them into four pieces. This way, I get less nicotine, but delivered more steadily. It seems to be helping with the writing, oddly enough.

What made me quit is waking up one morning (8 weeks ago yesterday) and finding myself unable to breathe. I knew I'd better give up binding or cigarettes, and the binding, surprisingly enough, is more important to me. Maybe you can find something similarly more important to you, like biking or something.

Oh, and here's the real kicker -- sex is SO much better now! No more being out of breath. It's Energizer Bunny time!

It's clear that the 20 things are overwhelmingly negative and pretty derogatory about gay men (often by giving them more female traits - hate women do you?).

Personally there are one or two straight men where I work that could do with being cleaner - especially when other (straight) men even complain about it.

But how very sad that the silly list says that only gay men value education. Are you really implying that every educated man out there only values their, and their children's, education because they are homosexual?

That's the equivalent of saying that straight men (you are only talking about men) prefer to stay ignorant and to keep their children stupid. You'd be one of the latter then?
