Worst LGBT StereotypesAs a member of the LGBT community, I'd like to confirm that these stereotypes are dumb and pointless. I've seen them online and heard them on the street and oop-
Just because one transgender is a child predator that doesn't mean all of them are. I don't even think that person's transgender. Probably just an act just to see underage girls in the bathroom.
that’s a stupid stereotype
In some cases it is true (I.e. Jeffree Star and especially James Charles, who I hate). I usually imagine men who happen to be gay to be more masculine that some straight people.
Honestly, I thought this when I was a little girl. Forgive me.
Not always the case. A lot of gays are masculine too.
I've honestly never understood this to be honest
That applies to me, my hair is short. But it doesn't have anything to do with me being les.
Some keep it long.
my sister has her hair cut short, and she isn't a lesbain! she has a bf and has probably NEVER liked girls in that way..
what about femme lesbians?
Not to toot my own horn, but I'm ace and I'm pretty mature for my age. I really don't like the stereotype that Aces are being "childish". Being told "you're too childish" as an Ace is really hurtful because we grow up under the assumption that there's something wrong with us (and of course, there isn't) or that we're just late bloomers because, according to society, everyone should feel sexual attraction right? No. It is hard to come to terms with being Ace because how can we understand not feeling sexual attraction when we don't know what it feels like in the first place? We're not being childish. And some of us are old people too
I used to think this too but it's not really the case. Some people just don't feel sexual attraction to others.
Hey I'd say its good to keep a childlike mind
Anyone say this to me they're slapped.
Where did this come from?
Again, said no one ever.
That’s... I don't know what to say.
Basically, aromantic is feeling little to no romantic attraction but can feel sexual attraction. Some people are just not capable of romantic feelings. No need to put em down for it.
I’m aromantic as well as asexual. I know a bit about what pimps are and I (and possibly other aro’s) aren’t pimps.
False. A polyromantic relationship is consented through all partners.
Whoever came up with this...
Uhh, why does this stereotype exist?
Remember Drag Queen Story Hour?
why would someone think this?
Not everyone does this. Only a few self entitled morons. Once again, a small amount in a community doesn't determine an entire community.
More than a few and they make sure they ram their views down people's throats via the media et al.
Well, homophobes shove their beliefs down LGBT people’s throats
*Cough* Pride Parades *Cough*
I've never understood the logic behind this. How in the world does being attracted to more people = being more likely to cheat?
where is the logic in that?
COMING FROM ME, A BISEXUAL, WE ARE NOT MORE LIIKELY TO CHEAT and if a bisexual person cheated, we do not claim them
I got admit this! hell, be gay is bad, but bi is another different thing, and the worst part it's when u lie and control people for u own pleassure.
In all honesty, this has got to be one of the most ignorant and biased LGBT stereotypes I've ever heard.
You know, cause when a guy has a crush on another guy, it logically follows that he is a pedophile. (this is sarcasm)
Wonder where did this stupid stereotype came from
Huh? People actually think this?
Some of them are.
No we are not. We don't have to "PiCk A sIdE! 1! " We are still bi no matter what gender our partner is.
I’m bi and I’m definitely not confused
I never understand why people call Aces "straight". Straight literally means someone who is heterosexual heteromantic. Straight people are Allosexual. Aces are literally the opposite of Allo. Aces are not straight (but some of them are heteromantic. Still doesn't mean they're straight)
I'm demisexual (a person who does not experience sexual attraction unless they form a strong emotional connection with someone) and I hate it.
False. It's just preference. I know plenty of gay men. Some wear makeup, some don't.
