Take That, Breeders!!

This was on OUT.Com and I couldn't help myself. Found it kinda funny - Seven Reasons Why We (Gays) Are Better Than You (Straights):

1) When we have kids it’s because we really want them.
Goodness knows we all hear about those silly “breeders” who practice unsafe sex and then get a “surprise” one day. Gay people don’t have it so easy. When we want to have children there’s always a third party (be it a test-tube, a surrogate, an adoption agency, etc.), adding to the already great challenge of deciding to become a mother or a father. We’re not saying it makes us better parents, but… OK, that’s what we’re saying.

2) We have better style.
If we didn’t, would there have been a Queer Eye for the Straight Guy? We think not. And given that most celebrated male fashion designers bat for our team, we rest our case.

3) We set the trends.
How else can you explain us wearing $500 designer jeans years before they were popular? And where would metrosexuality be if we hadn’t been getting ourselves plucked and waxed for eons? These may not be good things, but still, we were there first.

4) We take better care of ourselves.
You know you walked into your 10-year high school reunion with more hair, fewer wrinkles, less fat, and better fashion than any other guy in your class. Be proud.

5) When it comes to partying, we do it up right.
Every straight gal pal of yours (and some of your hetero guy friends too) tells you they have more fun at a gay club than they do at a straight club. And naturally most of the hottest party planners are queer. It’s because we’re more fun. No really, we are.

6) We are devoted.
Be good to us, we’ll be good to you. No matter the generation, we stick with our divas (see Judy, Barbra, Bette, Madonna). And, hey, we’re brand loyal too!

7) Watch out for our wit.
Growing up as outsiders (to one degree or another) forces us to be verbally fast on our feet. So be nice, or a cutting remark will slice you down to size.

I think #7 is especially true for me...yeah, that's one to be proud of...


  • Hahaa! These are great! And true, actually! Why do you think all of us straight gals aspire to have a gay boyfriend? I mean, they take up where our straight boyfriends leave off, of course!!

    And #7 is definitely for you:

    Kiddo to stranger at bar: "You're a NOBODY, I tell ya, a NOBODY!" Hahaha! ;o)

    Have a great day, kid!

  • Very nice.
    I love this list.
    The ten-year reunion thing was totally true for me. I did look better than almost all the fat, married guys there.
    Of course, back when they last saw me, I was fat - but that's not the point!
    I ate because of sexual repression!!
    Or something like that.

  • LOVE IT! And I agree with every one of these. I can soooo vouch for #5...the drag show we went to still ranks as the most 'sans rock band fun' I've had!
