Reddit recently had a field day when user u/ma_damn_blueberry posed this very important question to straight men of the Reddit: What's the strangest thing you've been told not to do because "that's gay?"
Honestly, sometimes the level of ignorance in this world is just so ridiculous that I'm left wondering whether some of us are going back in time. I mean, is it just absolutely bonkers that homophobia is still a very real thing in this day and age? Why is it so hard to understand and accept that heterosexuality isn't the only form of sexual orientation in the world we live in? In fact, some individuals are so ridiculously ill-informed on the subject that they believe certain actions have the power to make one gay. Read a book or two, will you?
The AskReddit forum recently had a field day with the topic when user u/ma_damn_blueberry posed this very important question to straight men of the Reddit: What's the strangest thing you've been told not to do because "that's gay?" As it turns out, straight men have been chomping at the bit to share the incredulous things they've been called gay for and the thread quickly went viral with many hilarious revelations that make you laugh and facepalm yourself at the same time. Some are eye-opening, some downright depressing, and some others prompt you to pray for the poor souls wandering this planet under the impression that applying sunscreen could make them gay.
Some dude just called me a pussy for putting on sunscreen. Imagine thinking you're tougher than the sun? The fucking sun?— Riggs (@RiggsBarstool) June 10, 2017
