.. humans tend to stereotype people that they can't understand ..<quoted text>
I don't know, but it might help gays if they quit acting so different from everybody else.
What I mean is, you never hear a straight man identify himself as a straight man. Just the man. Why does a gay man feel the need to force a different identification on himself? Why must he say "I am a gay man"?
Now it's just my opinion, I could be very wrong, but I think the "normal" gays - the ones that don't wear rainbow socks and have a strong lisp and call guys "girlfriend"- help gays a lot more than hurt gays.
This is how we perceive you. It's a stereotype, I know. It sucks, I know.
.. you were raised in a culture that frowned on sissy boys and butch women. Because of Topix forums, you're slowly starting to understand gays/lesbians come in all shapes and sizes ..
.. people like River Tam, Lacez, Wilderide and myself must remain highly visible. That's the only way you'll ever find out who we really are ..
