The 5 Most Common Stereotypical Gay Guys

We all know you've thought about it before.

The 5 Most Common Stereotypical Gay Guys

I know you have created your own mental concept of what a stereotypical gay man is like. Don’t lie and say you haven’t. I’m gay and do it all the time. So, I decided to take it upon myself to create a list of the 5 most common gay guys you’ll probably meet at least once in your life time.

1. The Gay Best Friend

This one I would say is the most common “stereotype” there is. Mostly because every gay person can be a gay best friend if they wanted to be. The gay best friend is the best possible best friend a girl could have (if I do say so myself) because most of the time, they understand how guys are complete dogs and understand your pain. Plus you MOST LIKELY don’t have to worry about the petty drama that some girls can bring with them.

2. Is he really gay?

In all honestly, excluding the GBF, I think this is the most common type of gay. Just because we like guys, just like straight girls do, doesn’t mean that we want to be just as girl as a normal girl. They might joke about and pretend to act fem as a joke a lot, but unless you were good friends with them, you would have never guessed that they’re gay. We are still MEN, we just happen to like other men also.

3. The Stereotypical Gay

That one gay character in every comedy you have ever seen. He’s loud (sometimes), he’s sassy, and has that “super gay” walk and demeanor about himself. In gay terminology, we call them ‘fems’. Before you matured and realized that being gay is okay and not weird, whenever you thought of a gay person you probably thought about this type of gay person.

4. The Sports Star

You honestly probably would have never known that this person was gay unless they told you. He was probably captain of the football team, and just never talked about his “romantic interest” so you automatically assumed he was straight. They are “a MAN”.

5. The Intellectual Gay

We all know he’s gay because he always brings up the topic of political debate of gay rights EVERY CHANCE HE GETS. If it’s not political topics it’s on the philosophy of homosexuality in general. They’re proudly LGBT, but it’s kinda over kill. Not all of them are boring/irritating. Some know how to turn it on and off so it is a lot less frequent and less irritating.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
