Is It Insulting To Be Called Straight
Here’s a question from Reddit that sparked an interesting discussion. Someone asked gay guys if they get insulted if someone calls them straight. The replies are interesting.
“‘Straight-acting’ is a fetish among gays, so I’d imagine most of us would be flattered by it, and/or affirmed in our heteronormative impulses,” one user replied. “[In my opinion], insulting someone by calling them straight is deliciously ironic.”
Frankly, I don’t think it’s even relevant. There’s never been any shame associated with being straight, and no one ever had to hide in the closet for being straight. That’s why it’s called “heteronormative.” But then again, the people who replied are not even taking it to this level…which does not surprise me. We have a long way to go yet.
