A lot of gay men may have found their first non-judgmental friends in women. Probably that's why TV shows and movies love to show the "gay best friend". A flamboyant gay sidekick for the progressive, hot female lead is a staple of many Bollywood blockbusters.
However, that doesn't mean that gay men want to be everyone's 'gay best friend.'
That's not the only stereotyping gay men have to face everyday. YouTube channel BeingIndian has put together the typical things homosexual hear everyday.
Watch the video above.
Here are some of the things you just should NOT tell your gay friends:
Do you get turned on by your own body?
If you are a lesbian, how are you so pretty? Why do you have long hair?
It's just a phase.
I always wanted a gay best friend.
You always think like a girl. Don't you?
How can you not like boobs?
You can get any girl, look at you--you are so handsome.
This is not normal. Aren't you afraid of going to hell?
Who's the wife in the relationship?
So, it's time to stop it already! Instead of using stereotypes to box them up, get to know them?
