17 Phrases All Gay Men LOOOOOVE To Hear

Really, the more often, the better.

1. "You don't look gay."

Columbia Pictures

Ahhhh, sorry! I forgot my magical tiara at home.

2. "But you're not effeminate at all."

Universal Pictures

I guess I missed the lesson where they taught us that all gay men HAVE to be effeminate. I suppose I also missed the one where they said there's something wrong with that.

3. "So, do you dress like a woman?"


How did you know?! Because I'm a man who likes other men, I must automatically have a passionate desire to wear bralettes, right? As far as I know, what you wear has nothing to do with your sexual preferences.

4. "Who's the man and who's the woman?"

Well, last time I checked, he was a man...and so was I.

5. "Are you gay, or do you just wish you were a woman?"


Actually, I always wanted to be a unicorn dolphin.

6. "When did you become gay?"


One day I fell down the stairs and hit my head and BOOM! Gay.

7. "I'll make you a man."

Fuji TV


8. "What a waste."


... Thanks?

9. "I've always said 'gay.' I don't mean it as a slur. It means the same thing as 'lame' when I say it."


OH! Thank goodness. Thanks for clarifying.

10. "I'm open-minded! I have no problem with it. All cool with gays..."

The world needs more heroes like you. You've ended prejudice.

11. " long as you don't try to hit on me."

Twitter: @xo_ynel

QUICK, COVER YOUR FACE! I'd hate to fall into hetero temptation.

12. "You must love Lady Gaga/Britney/Beyoncé/Madonna."


Actually, yes! When you come out of the closet, you're automatically enrolled in their fan clubs, and you get a free rainbow thong.

13. "I know another gay dude I could hook you up with."

Everyone knows that when two gay men lock eyes, they immediately fall in love.

14. "Were you abused as a child?"

Warner Pictures

You would NEVER ask someone you just met that question! Why do you think it's okay to ask me that just because I'm gay?

15. "Does everyone at your office know? I know not everyone is so accepting of it."

Warner Bros.

I'm like Batman. Nobody at work knows my secret identity.

16. "Should I use female pronouns around you?"

Of course, girl! Gays won't understand if you speak normally.

17. "I'm sure it's just a phase."

A phase that's lasted longer than the Jurassic period, the Crusades, and the Cold War combined.
