Misconception

At this time and year its still surprising to know that many of our fellow Filipino are still stuck on the idea that if you are gay, you'll like straight men, if you're gay, you'll like girl's clothes, if you're gay, you like to have a slim and thin body. But that's so Ice Age already LOL!

To most of them if you're gay,you just have to look like the "parlorista" gays that they used to know (no offense meant to them.)

S0me of my friends are still shock once they find out I'm going out or dating someone gay-ish than me! and would say "Are you trying to be a lesbian or something?!" haha. They find it weird, that's why I always told them, straight men are safe when I'm around! And homophobic men are always been suspected of being gay themselves!LOL

I don't know I'm just weird I guess, the more effeminate the person is the more I'm attracted LOL!

Gay Facts:

Most gay loves to be masculine and bulky.

Just because someone is gay doesn't mean he won't like sport or any physical activity.

Just because you suspect someone seems to be gay and you want him to admit it, let him be,its his prerogative.Maybe he has a lot of stuff to consider. Lets face it, most of our family and friends have a hard time dealing with homosexuality.And stop talking at the person's back!That he should come out and stuffs like that, and like this. Its not easy being gay specially if you have a lot to lose!

Just because someone is so manly doesn't mean he's not gay!

Just because he hangs out with straight men doesn't mean he's straight!You can never know!

Gay men can still have attraction with the female species.(Well, I still have some desire with women if you may ask!haha)

Just because he is married, doesn't mean he is straight!

Homosexuality is not contagious.

Not all homo's are loud, vulgar, flirty and slutty!haha

And just because I'm gay, doesn't mean you don't treat me right, that I'm less of a person!

Isaksak nyo 'yan sa kukote nyo! kidding!!!!!!!!!!!

you're right mac...

not all hunks are real men..
not all gay men wants to wear woman's clothes...
some gay men wants to have girlfriends (i think it's termed as "beard")...

the sad part is most filipinos are typecasting gay people to a certain image that degrades them. :(

Great post. I'm reminded of this quote by Harvey Milk:-

"Gay brothers and sisters,... You must come out. Come out... to your parents... Come out to your relatives... come out to your friends... if indeed they are your friends. Come out to your neighbors... to your fellow workers... to the people who work where you eat and shop... come out only to the people you know, and who know you. Not to anyone else. But once and for all, break down the myths, destroy the lies and distortions. For your sake. For their sake..."

By becoming more vocal and open in who we are, that's the only way we can break down the prejudices of society. Unfortunately gay pride events don't help with their displays of flesh and men dressed as women and vice versa parading through the streets. That's one part of it. Gay people though are really just like everyone else in terms of who they are and how they live their lives. We just want love and acceptance and the freedom to be who we are without prejudice.
