    I think its the "Gays are recruiting kids into homosexuality from a young age" , I just find it incredibly dumb that people actually believe any of this junk

    I thought the one about how our guts will begin to eviscerate, or something akin to that, after too much anal was pretty good.

    I think the 'lesbians are just ugly women who can't get a man' thing is pretty daft. As there are some incredibly fit lesbos out there and straight men love to wank over girls doing things with other girls.

    I heard one that I believe came from the church, something along the lines of the numbers of gay/etc people are increasing and they will soon have a world majority, take over the government, kill off all the straight people, and run the world into the ground. It was funny.

    They believe these things because they don't understand. It's what they've been brought up to believe.

    Hopefully in the future people will be educated much more about LGBT individuals.

    Gay men are more likely to be pedophiles.

    The following explains it better than I can :slight_smile:

    This is empirically false. Psychologists (see Groth & Birnbaum 1978, for example) have elaborated on two types of pedophiles: fixated and regressive. Fixated pedophiles have no sexual interest in other adults, and are thus not to be described as heterosexual or homosexual because they focus on children of any sex. Regressive pedophiles are often attracted to other adults, but sometimes regress to immature sexual states where they become attracted to children. Regressive pedophiles do develop sexual orientations under this model, and the majority of them are heterosexual. Fortunately, this stereotype is slowly dying off.

    People who aren't monosexual (eg. pan and bi people) can't be monogamous.

    In response to Naren. Can we create a save the straight people campaign? We need them to keep making more gay people, my parents are as straight as they come, but love me just the same.

    My favorite is that "Trans* people are just really, really, SUPER gay." That was exactly how it was worded to me and I thought it was funny, so now every time that someone asks me if I'm gay I don't even get offended; I just giggle and say "Yes. I'm really, really SUPER gay!" :grin:

    Not directed at me, but ones I've come across...

    "If you look deep inside yourself, you will find out why you think you are male."

    "I've studied this a lot, ok? There are only two genders."

    "People who think they're asexual just have repressed homosexual feelings. Poor them. :frowning2:"

    These pathetic lines made me laugh.

    Actually, I saw a book about that on Amazon a few weeks ago.

    It was a sci-fi thriller, if I recall. Hopefully someone knows the name, but the plot was something about a society in which the government controls the population through genetically modified reproduction in laboratories, and any natural reproduction is strictly forbidden, except for research purposes. All people are homosexual, and anyone found to be heterosexual is sent off to special work camps and prisons. The protagonist is a heterosexual, struggling to keep his sexual identity hidden.
     
  14. Probably that bisexuals are just greedy. I found that pretty funny.

    What I don't get we're fighting for or rights, and they think will take over the world for evil. :bang: Gosh! Why would we be mad over your sexual orientation when we're just trying to get equal rights. But, when that happens we'll deny your rights? I'm so confused.

    "All gay men are promiscuous."

    EEEH! Wrong.

    "Gay men recruit children to be gay."

    Wrong again, bigots.

    "Bisexuals are people who can't make up their mind."

    Wrong again. I've heard this from both sides of the spectrum, and it outrages me. :l

    "Gay people raise gay kids."

    Then where the hell did I come from? :confused:

    I think some of the most ridiculous ones went something like this: gay men choose to be gay, because

    1) They hate women
    2) They wish to be women
    3) They have 'given up' on women

    It's not a common view, but probably the one that had me switching between a 'WFT :confused:' face and doubling over in pain from laughing so hard. A lot of them came from teenaged girls, not surprisingly.

    Then there are the countless bisexual stereotypes I won't even bother going into.

    I'm being unfair to some hypothetical guy with a crush on me by being asexual. Never mind how much more unfair it would be to encourage him to waste his time with me when he could have someone who reciprocates his feelings.

    I read the funniest article a few months back about how people become gay when evil sex demons infiltrate their dreams. It was hilariously well written considering how batshit insane it was.

    I love my sex demon, lol.

    The one that has driven me crazy is these straight men who think gay guys can give better BJs because we have one too and know what it should feel like. I can't even keep count how many guys have asked me for a BJ wanting to know if it is true. Naturally gay guys want every straight man they see because we are all sluts is the other myth I hate.
