No! NO! NOOOOOOOO! The left side CAN'T be straight! I wanted so bad to get my left ear pierced, just as a sign of my left-wing politics. And now it's straight... *goes to lick her wounds, so to speak*

Well by at least half the stuff said here, I'm practically RUNNING gay pride parades!

At least with my friends, you want teh world to know you're gay? Wear a skirt.

Then again, around here, most people don't want people to know...

Hmm..

Heh. Other than the lisp and piercings (I don't lisp, and I don't have any desire to be pierced) I fit pretty much every stereotype for being gay (fashion, way I walk/sit, best friends all being female, hate sports, ambidextrous, etc.), and practically everyone thinks I am (the fact that I have girlfriends seems to be besides the point, I guess they figure I'm trying to deny it or something), but I have no attraction whatsoever to males (not that there's anything wrong with that). I just think its funny. Not that I normally deny being gay when accused, generally I have fun with their heads by pretending to come on to them (its fun to freak out fundementalists and bigots), but this is Toronto where its fairly acceptable to be gay (for the most part, there are idiot bigots everywhere unfortunately). So I suspect I'd probably confuse most people's gaydar here. I guess the stereotypes are just that.

Here's a silly one:
If you tell a person they have something stuck to the bottom of their shoe, a guy who balances on one leg and crosses his foot in front of him onto his other knee to look down to check the bottom of his shoe is straight, but a guy who looks behind him over his shoulder and picks his foot up behind him is supposedly gay.

In regards to the piercing bit, it's also sometimes stated that an earring in the left ear implies attraction to women, one in the right ear implies attraction to men, regardless of gender of the piercee.

Now, see, the mullet thing doesn't work, because I know this married couple - both men - and while one has this headful of blond curls, the other has this long, beautiful shade of red mop of a mullet. And I meant MULLET - the long ends are past his waist, and the short ends he usually has cut to about 3 inches. And the redhead isn't interested in women - although he get's mistaken for one a lot, due to how very pretty he looks, the llipgloss and nailpolish, and his tendancy to wear long flowy things... also, he's slender but he has hips. Very nice on the eyes. *g*

As for what side to pierce on, well, my mom had both my earlobes pieces when I was just a baby, and every time they grew over thereafter. And I'm bi. But, hey, then i moved away and let them grow over again, only to have my ears placed in a more unusual spot. *shrugs*

I think I have fair gaydar when it comes to guys, which doesn't help me at all! =)
At dinner tonight, one of the waiters was wearing a rainbow t-shirt and seemed to watch intently (as I did) when the No on 8 commercial came on the bar TV, so, I think that was a pretty good indicator, but I often can't tell and I think women are so hard to figure out. Most (straight) people I know think that tomboy girls and feminine men are gay, so, it's like they think that there has to be a "male" and "female" in every relationship.

The way I tell if people are queer is by assessing whether or not I'm attracted to them. It's worked surprisingly well in the past for both guys and girls. If they make my heart go pitter-patter, they're bound to be at least bi-curious.

(And my girlfriend is a southpaw, by the way. XD)

Heh, that's interesting about the whole "bottom of your shoe" thing...

I, however, just tip my ankle to the side-- wonder what that makes me?

That whole "musical theatre" thing (to expand on the earlier Judy Garland comment). I don't think the "am I into them" test works for me, though I (being a woman) actually managed to fall in love with Rufus Wainwright's music recently and was all like "does this mean I'm going to experience a life time of crushes on gay men (which would just be a little pointless as they won't be interested in me)?" because I thought I might be a little into him because I liked his voice so much, in fact, reflecting back on my life, I definitely do not have crush gaydar. I don't want a piercing and am right handed and look back over my shoulder when I'm checking for dog doo and dress mostly in blue and I love cats and dogs and I don't know what birkenstocks are and I'm not exceptionally enamoured of Judy Garland (though this may change with time).

Always knock before entering my room when I am in there alone, as I may be doing all sorts of wonderfully thrilling things that I'd rather you didn't see.
