14 Things Straight Women Get Wrong About Gay Guys

Written by Michael D'Alimonte

Gay guys get misunderstood, a lot, at least when it comes to our lifestyle. The largest misconception is that all gay guys share a specific lifestyle, one that's a big ball of sex, abs, and partying. If only that were true. The largest culprit of reinforcing the gay stereotype, even though they don't really mean to, are some straight girls. Such women seem to have a singular conception for all gay men, one that's far from reality. To illustrate what I'm talking about, here are 14 things some straight girls never seem to understand about gay guys:

1.   We don't want to be your "gay best friend."
2.   We don't know (or care) if that outfit looks good on you.
3.   We aren't hooking up all the time.
4.   We don't want to hear about your guy problems.
5.   We don't like to be called "so cute" when we're with our boyfriends.
6.   We don't want you to be our "fag hag" and party with us.
7.   We don't want to hear you complain about how "all the good ones are gay."
8.   We don't need you to stand up for us.
9.   We aren't "one of the girls."
10. We don't want to give you sex tips. Seriously.
11. We don't want to be set up with "that gay guy" you know.
12. We don't all watch RuPaul's Drag Race.
13. And we don't all love Beyoncé and Lady Gaga
14. No, we don't want to make out with you.
