Any stereotype about any group of people bothers me, but especially that we are trying to get others to become gay...oh my god! TO be honest, I wouldn't wish that on anyone - it's a hard life. Especially being bi - everyone keeps asking me, if you're attracted to guys as well, why are you dating a woman? Arg. I also hate that people think we're forcefull in our opinions just because we're gay. hey, I've met several straight people that are a hell of a lot more forceful about their opinions than I am.

I think it is most annoying when people assume it is just a phase. As if they have any right to know what goes on in someone elses head!

I agree, any stereotype is annoying. I
picked the whole gay=effeminate one though, as I was spoilt for choice!
I lived my life in shadow- never the sun on my face
It didn't seem so sad though, I figured that was my place.

According to my prof...

The reason people resist sex ed in curricula, along with discussion about suicide and homosexuality is due to the "contagion" factor. In other words...

Administrator: "We can't tell kids to use condoms, becuase then they'll all go out and have sex. Instead, let's not tell them anything. That way, they'll never consider having sex."

Of course, what happens is they just go and have ignorant sex, thus causing a host of problems. Likewise...

Admin: "We can't talk about homosexuality, b/c then kids will start becoming gay."

Of course, young people naturally become gay. So, they become oppressed.

It's all due to this bullshit theory about contagion.
