What ways are you most like the stereotype of another gender or orientation than your own? And yep- I freely admit I’m dealing with stereotypes of what a gay-man/straight-man/woman/lesbian/etc. is like, so no hijacking please.
So for example, if you’re a she-Doper who loves building things with power tools, or a straight he-Doper who’s paid more than $400 for a pair of designer shoes, or a gay-Doper who loves tractor pulls, plop it here.
I’m a gay man. I’m most like the gay male stereotype in that I like showtunes, easy listening, and even Barbra in moderation (singing only- “even though I’m a Democrat would you PLEASE SHUT UP ABOUT POLITICS!”), and that I have absolutely no interest in sports. The “straightest” or “least gay” things about me in terms of stereotypes would be:
–I have no sense of and less interest in fashion
–I’m as far from being a neat freak as you can get without haz-mat guys coming to your house
–Can’t stand techno-music (it literally gives me a headache)
–Get that damned California chardonnay away from me and pour me a whiskey and Coke
–Love guns/own several
–My guiding philosophies of interior decoration are “how much does it cost?” and “put it over there, or somewhere… if I need it somewhere else I’ll move it”
My “girliest” qualities… hmmm…
–I love textures (Egyptian cotton, silk, etc.) and scents (e.g. candles, bath oils)
–I love romantic art (Waterhouse, for instance) and music (Loreena McKennitt is one of my favorite humans)
–Would far rather cuddle at home than go partying or drinking
So what are some of your ‘alternate’ gender stereotype qualities?
