As I started coming out to the "wider community" (ie anyone other than family and friends of the family), I started to notice the same questions/statements popping up.

eg: (read these in earnest, wide-eyed type voices)
"What made you like this/why are you gay?" I've developed the standard response of "Good genes, better upbringing and a healthy splash of luck."

(in an even more earnest voice)
"But HOW do you know/ you're too young etc etc"
Response: "Think back to the last time you were asked why you were heterosexual, how did you respond?" (This stumps everyone who's asked so far, back it up with "Why should I have to justify myself, and not you?") If anyone actually says "I said I was straight because...." Let me know! LOL

Anyway, the point of this post is more directed at lesbians, because I'd like a witty response to the line "One nite with me and I'll make u hetero" yes, I know they're immature nitwits that shouldn't be bothered with, but I'd like something to make me feel better while I'm sitting there fuming! lol

And for gay guys too, any standard questions that you get?

"If you don't like gays, then they're everywhere, coming out of the woodwork to corrupt little children... but if you are gay, especially if you're in high school, you're the only one in the universe..."

One of my friends who does know about my sexuality always asks me who I fancy. I try to remind him that I like girls as well but he seems more interested in what boys I like.

As for a good comeback line.... something like "One night with me and I will drive you gay." Hard to come up with but something along those lines.

I get told I'm too young a lot. My own father(he got over it after a month or so) told me something about knowing my orientation at eighteen. Then some other girl asked me just so she could ask if it was a choice and she stared at me like a freak, because I was so "young," maybe I'm too "young" according to her to be so "corrupted." Sorry, too much sarcasm.
