I've never gotten any lesbian signals from Rainbow Dash. She's just cool.

Girls can't be cool without being gay?

    Heya everyone! I haven't posted in here before so I will just say hey.

    I knew I was a lesbian long before I saw such acts, even before my son was born. So what accounts for me being lesbian if I never saw homosexual acts?

    Also just to stat I do not wish to cause any arguments. I just disagree with what was said.

      My mom's gaydar isn't based on coolness. Her gaydar is expertly crafted by our gay friends. Seriously though it is stupid when people associate tomboys with lesbians. Even Lauren Frost said that was stupid and offensive. According to my mom, Rainbow Dash gives off a real lesbian vibe, whether that's on purpose or not we both agree that's awesome.

        No, that's not what I meant.

        I don't in any remote way believe that our sexuality is a choice. I was stating that from the view of how the anti-homosexual people think. They think that homosexuality is a choice and even that it can come from seeing others be homosexual.

        So I was speaking from that assumption, saying that now not only do they think that it can be passed on by just seeing somebody else be homosexual, but, even more absurdly, they think it can be passed on by seeing somebody/character portraying behavior that is stereotyped as being homosexual.

        (I'm sorry, but going back and reading my post I don't even see how I worded that badly... I clearly wasn't speaking my own beliefs there.)

          I totally agree, some of those videos are pathetic or just really really awkward.
          Although most I have seen tend to be parodies aimed towards the male populace of fans.

          OK I'm sorry but you guys are getting MLP all over my beautiful thread.

          Let's change the topic, shall we?


          ^ That is a link. You'd be surprised how often people don't pick up on that.

            I wish I could ovulate. That would be a nifty ability to have.

            I have a feeling that that experiment would put me at like maybe 50/50 because I am absolutely the worst at picking out people based on their sexuality. It makes it awkward sometimes because while other people will just pick up on it, I won't and they have to spell it out and stuff, lol. :(

            MLP is amazing Andy. You must watch it.
            I've never met any gay people irl, so I don't know if I have a good gaydar or not... though it'd be pretty useful if I did. haha

            I think the fact that you think you've never met any gay people in real life means that your gaydar is pretty terrible

            I've met plenty of gay people. Usually if it's a guy, they mention their sexuality offhand after I've developed a crush on them. It used to be the biggest problem for me hahaha.

            I have horrible gaydar. There were these girls who I saw in class for several semesters and I never knew they were gay, let alone a couple.

            Hah, gaydar.

            That's really weird! I can't tell if anybody's gay or not, but that's probably because I live in a pretty homophobic town (because Asians.)...but I really want to "meet mah people", and have someone who I can talk to daily and get me through some hard parts about the "coming out" part.

            But I think I would have a very bad gaydar if I knew there were lots of gay people around nonetheless.

            Margaret Cho, anyone?

            Well droomph, that's pretty much exactly what we're here for! If you need any help with coming out or any other part of being gay and you can't find it in your offline life, then we are "your people" XD

            Ah yes, but I don't know where to start to do that...

            I swear no one in a thirty-mile radius from my house is gay, and most of them are homophobic. That's kinda weird...

            Oh werl wassup gaaaiz how's it doing

            So what's with the "pink thongs and assless chaps and those chest chains oh my" gay people? What are all your thoughts on those people? Because I know you people here aren't flamboyant (because POKÉMON, come on you know that's true).

            And if you are one of those people who like to wear pink panties, I'm very sorry. :apologetic mochi:

            I have the world's worst gaydar. We were playing a sharade type of game in theatre back in high school, and this guy started prancing around and we were shouting our guesses and I said "gay model" and he flipped me off. The guy next to me says "you know he's really gay, right?" lol And I felt so bad. :( I've always been bad at following stereotypes irl though, so I guess that might be more of a good thing than bad thing? haha

            Haha we could start a club

            It's just like how once a gay pastor came to our Winter Retreat. I was like, "HE's gay?" until he showed us the...questionable...pictures on the screen when he was giving his sermon and stuff. Ever heard of Christopher Yuan

            Is it psychological? It must be genetic. Psychological? Genetic. Psychology? Genes.

            Hm...

              I could totally imagine that. A gaydar gene XD. I also have a horrible time trying to figure out if somebody is gay or not (but that's because I am not a woman, and thusly do not ovulate).

              But we men have some quirky times, like how we...

              "We men just need to get it out once it a while. It's almost like a valve, and...you know? The city should put a red tag or something on it, and people would come by and say, 'That's not good, it's getting dangerously high'."
              Not a direct quote from-Louis C.K.

              And so that's our equivalent of ovulation.

              New break. This should be something fun to debate. My home state of California is deciding whether public universities should ask students to include their orientation on their paperwork when they apply for admission. Ostensibly it's to make sure there are enough support services for LGBT students on the campuses, but some say it's wading into some murky privacy territory.

              [the article]

              So would you want your prospective school to ask this? Would you answer it?

              I am out, so I wouldn't care too much... but I would want to know for sure why they are asking, and what they're going to do differently based on my answer.

              As long as it's confidential, and optional, I don't think it's a problem if they ask.

              Sounds fishy to me, would they like to know my favourite foods, colours and pokémon as well as people .

              I would leave it blank, and possibly file a complaint if a job or college asked me that.
