We told you about the stuff that gay guys are sick of hearing, now we’re moving to the gay girls. Yup, they’ve heard these a ton of times (I have witnessed it and it’s seriously annoying) and it’s time we bring up the 10 things gay women are tired of hearing you say. Seriously, pay attention!

1. You’re A Lesbian? *Takes a closer look* Really?

Similar to gay men, lesbians too have to deal with this dumb question.

2. So who wears the pants in your relationship?

Simply put, “Who’s the man in your relationship?” Another gem thrown around and it really isn’t even a good question. Stop trying to fit people in the sphere of your own logic to make your life easier. #SmileAndMoveON

3. Two girls in a relationship? Emotionally, That’s draining right?!

Seriously?! Think about your question and think about it again.

4. Does that mean you guys don’t have pregnancy scares or STDs?

Firstly, No. Women can’t get pregnant on their own. And that can be a heartbreaking fact for a gay woman. So don’t be trivial about it. Secondly, STDs spare no one. And if you ask that question, you need go and read a book on it. Maybe you’ll learn something.

5. How do you have sex?

If you really want to know then, read a book (again!). Or surf the web for answers and stay out of other people’s business.

6. Can I join? Or Watch? I like women too.

Do I even start to explain how inappropriate/rude/dumb/immature this is?

7. I wonder what it’s like to be a lesbian. Just that men bore me.

Sure, you’ve had bad luck with men. And we can agree that you’re emotionally drained from all the heartache. But that alone isn’t the license you need to go gay. Genius.

8. Are you also a feminist?

Nope.

9. Haha. Do you have a crush on me?

Every lesbian isn’t into you, just as you aren’t into every guy. It’s that simple.

 

10. Are you sure you haven’t met the right guy?

Are you sure YOU haven’t met the right guy (or girl)?

There are a bunch of other things we say that could be inappropriate or could be put in a much polite and non-invasive manner. We’re all human and have our choices. Let’s just get along and agree on simple things, together. War is bad and there’s a lot of fun to be had. (Yeah, I had to end on a happy/cheesy note) See you soon!
