As in, do you believe that you fit the stereotypes for someone who isn't straight??
No one ever expects it so I don't think I do actually have to say I am so guys know I am am available and girls can relax around me.
There were rumors going around about me being gay since 6th grade, before I even knew what gay meant. So yes, I think must have always looked gay.
Totally! I don't mind I guess as it's just the way I am and I'm used to it. I just don't like the assumptions that people jump to as a result.
Does gay even look a certain way now?
Straight people don't really realise it, but it happened to me several times that I met someone who was gay and as we looked at each other, we just knew. So I might look gay to the gays, if this makes sense.
I mean sometimes I think I do look a little gay. When I'm around other gays they can tell but when I'm around heteros they can't tell.
Well, I have a fair bit of body hair, I have very few feminine tendencies, I don't wear make up, and the most I'm willing to care about my outward appearance is that I look clean and I only care about my clothes enough to make sure their colors match. I also have almost nothing but T-shirts and shorts. If we're going by stereotypes, not really.
Not really. I mean, I'm not super feminine (I usually don't wear dresses or heavy make-up) but I also don't look butch at all. Nobody can tell.
Probably. I don't wear makeup or have immaculate brows, but I wear tight clothes. Apparently too tight sometimes.
I feel like many consider that an indicator of gayness.
I remember overhearing a customer/fuglyuglyuggo whispering about it to whoever was sitting next to her in the waiting room one day. She said my clothes were too tight and that I should be out on the streets. She didn't exactly say anything gay-related, but I felt like that's where she wanted to go. She was so offended by my gay trick attire. :lol:
I really wanted to tell her a little bit about herself.
No, I could pass as a straight person more than some straight people that I know.
I wouldn't say I'm camp but I also don't think the people I've been telling recently have been shocked by the revelation. It's quite nice to be someone who looks like they could be gay and it's not a surprise, but also not fit into specific stereotypes so I don't get too constricted by those.
People always see that I am gay, might be the way I move, talk, I never see it myself, but my boyfriend says he could see it from a mile away
Since they see it anyway, I have started to use some make-up too, which is good because I have some scars to cover.
Sometimes. Sometimes not. Depends on my mood. But I don't really care either way.
Well.. If you were told I was a girl.. I'd probably look like quite the .. lesbian? Tomboy? Really butch girl? idk? lmao..
But then there's this:
I guess not, because no one assumes that I'm gay. I'm not butch by any means, but I'm also not super feminine. I think I *act* gay, if that makes sense, but no one knows I'm gay or suspects it, so I must not look it.
Depends on what I'm wearing and who I'm with. I tend to act "gayer" around my LGBT friends, you know, the walk, the talk, ect... but most of the time people don't suspect it... it heavily depends if I'm wearing my sweatshirt tied around my waist, apparently...
Very gay. I have short hair and my grandmother says "You look like a lesbian. Ya know, boys won't like you because you get your hair cut like that!" Oh my god, she has NO FILTER
I've got longer hair (collar length), and a countenance that makes me look as if I've been oppressed my whole life.
Er I have been accused of being gay in secondary school but I really think thats because I was very unpopular, not good looking, coy about my crushes and had boyish interests and no girly style sense. It just felt like another way to poke fun at me. Now I am dressing more purposefully masculinely like I prefer and being more confident, people think I'm the surest gayest person on the planet. In reality Im confused bisexual whos kissed more guys than girls and has mostly identified as straight until I realised I'd been ignoring a lot of stuff and fell for a girl. I just really love guy things and menswear. I think before it was more annoying straight people calling me gay and now its more lgbt people. I don't object to being seen as the super dyke I just find it hilarious when some girl implied I knew I was a lesbian at like 8... nah mate, decided I was bi at 17.
