I have this friend named Kevin. He is athletic, good with cars and tools, and loathes when I play my soundtrack from the musical Hair. My friend Kevin is a game man! ~A hush falls over the crown of straight people~ It’s 2016 band even though there are a vast amount of people gay and straight that make up this interestingly beautiful blue marble, gay men are still portrayed in the media as either super feminine or hyper masculine and on the down low. What are some things that straight people get wrong about gay men you ask? For starters, every gay man isn’t a great dresser! You hear about the gay man coming into room and you think “Oh he is such a snazzy dresser”. No! That’s just not the case all the time. Don’t get me wrong, you do see a lot of gay men that are fashionable, but don’t put them in a box. Another misnomer is that gay men are sensitive and caring and love to listen to gossip and problems. LOL! Well let me tell you, I know some rude, mean, or stoic guys. They could care less about your problems. Let’s just make a list shall we…
Nothing is worse than being the token gay guy. Every question having to do with being gay get fielded to you. You have to hear “is he cute or oooooohhhhh do you think his dick is big?” I don’t know, I was paying attention to my own business thank you very much.
Um, hello there are gay guys that like sports or concerts or motorcycles or art… shall I go on. Your first comment shouldn’t be “OMG did you see Wicked when it came to town? There are other interest that gay guys like.
You may think you are God’s gift to women or the world, but that doesn’t mean that gay men want you. When you walk around town do you automatically think of hopping into bed with EVERY woman you see? (Don’t answer that) Well, every gay man isn’t interested in you. Even if they were that’s no reason to act weird or be mean.
Unfortunately, this stereotype is highly thought of. However, there are a number of gay men that are looking for a long term monogamous relationship with another person. There is a “hook up” culture sure, but not anymore so that in the straight world. I know a lot of reaaaaallly straight people that whole heartedly ONLY WANT TO HOOK UP. Don’t pin that on gay men alone.
