So, manly is being a thug? I'm very attracted, I think about them all the time; I check out female butts when I walk to class. There is no such thing as looking gay, and being gay is normal. It was a great relationship, and we liked the stares we got from people who couldn't figure out if they were looking at a couple or not. Or at least until I can afford to move somewhere more enlightened. Then they wonder why straight men don't tend to cultivate Characteristic X, when it instantly causes women to lose interest through prejudice.
It probably won't have any questions, I just need to type it out and get it off of my chest. Courage and confidence r shown in the dealing with of a problem. But that's beside the point. I don't identify as gay but everyone else seems to think that I am. We were into catching crayfish in the creek and making up imaginary islands and hanging out in the woods, haha.
They're never excited to have a gay friend to shop with. I'm not planning on changing who I am based on what it looks like. Thanks for saving my number and hitting me up. This is the place to unload that baggage that's been weighing you down for days, weeks, months, or years. This in combination with my style of dress geeky but semi-fashionable has led most of my acquaintances to just assume that I swing for the same gender.
Embrace it and don't change yourself if you're happy. She doesn't seem to get it. Mannerisms are probably the biggest one that can project the appearance of being gay, but those can be changed. I wish people would ask out of genuine curiosity and listen to what I say, instead of making assumptions and projecting their own points of view onto me. For the fifth time in my life, someone has told me that I'm gay. I'm the complete opposite, no one thinks im gay but actually. .
Aside from just general frustration you seem to be taking it well. Just regular nice clothes you'd wear in an office. And it's only gonna get worse with time. That's a really bad example. They pick up on the fact that I'm trying hard not to look at them, and I get this weird vibe from them. Many people think a middle aged single male has not come out of the closet.
Their opinions don't matter except when it is a woman in whose pants you are trying to get. So scared of people they have to be jerks to them. I'm a straight woman, but I'm enough of a tomboy that some people assume I'm a lesbian. I really want to be that guy. Here's why: If people wish to proclaim me a lesbian, so what? Telling them I like them or something is impossible. But still, this whole thing has really pissed me off. But, I am very outspoken for gay rights, and so clearly Not interested in men.
I am gay and it took me ages to convince people I wasn't joking. Of course I am by no means any kind of expert, but that is just my take on it. I'm saying you don't have to itch your balls and spit on sidewalks to be a man. Basically, during my sixth-form, we had a new student join our class. Alternatively, use it to score chicks.
They seem to think gay people automatically act or look a certain way or have certain interests. Disclaimer: This is kinda shitty. Do you have interests that would give off the wrong message? But being outside the norm may be difficult and garner criticism, so the trick is learning how to manage that while also maintaining your self-confidence. And I'm officially tired of it. No one genuinely thought I was gay having a girlfriend helped But even people I just met assumed I was straight. And if you really are, this will reinforce what people think. And I would love a female friend.
However, the fact that you are comfortable in your personal tastes, regardless of their alignment with these ideals, shows confidence which many women find extremely sexy. Entrenched in a culture whose institutions perpetuate these rigid dichotomies and strict gender ideals, it may be extremely difficult to break the norms and be accepted for doing so. Keep being yourself, and as Alice says, go find some people who are interested in exactly the same things. That's just the way it is. So your post was the sort of feedback I was looking for.
