I loved all the chat about stereotypes back on page 20.

I understand the point about not stereotyping someone based on their appearance and interests. However, I'm pretty sure this is how gaydar was invented, and gaydar is probably the most important thing for a gay person to have if they want to get a date. Smiler

Gaydar is not about using stereotypes to see if someone is gay. Gaydar is about sensing whether or not some dude/lady is flirting with you in a gay/lezzie way, or if someone might be into you. Straight people do this too, only with the opposite sex.

^I agree with BitsOfBone (Amanda, right?) here. The very first thing you notice on a person is his/her looks and whether you like it not it says a lot about a person. Stereotyping is something our brain does on a daily basis. Personally, I don't think stereotyping is essentially wrong. Everything has frame/form and details. Besides there are nearly 7 billion people - there bound to people sharing the same qualities.

Haha well I thought it was funny.

Anyway, I don't agree with you Jellybean, simple as that.

I can't believe I am defending stereotyping, but its simply something that we all do, and more so the gay people because we don't all walk around with signs displaying our sexuality.

^^there's a difference between stereotyping and making educated guesses about someone based on deliberate signs.

If someone seems to be working to project a certain image, then you should accept the possibility that certain things are true about them. But do NOT assume that they /are/ true.
