    Why can’t gay people keep their male or female characteristics instead of acting like the opposite sex?

    Not all gay people act like the opposite sex; it just seems that way. There are plenty of people who keep their male/female characteristics.

    I can explain from a male point of view that gay men may act effeminate (though many don’t) as an act of freedom. Once you accept your sexual identity, some men refuse to feel restrained by society’s view of masculinity and femininity.

    The majority of gay people I meet act in the manner members of their gender stereotypically conduct themselves. Gay people act certain ways for different reasons. It always helps to think that for every ‘feminine-acting’ gay male you meet, there are loads of ‘masculine-acting’ gays.

    Sex roles, since they can be broken, are merely social constructions. They in no way dictate masculinity or femininity. They are, essentially, irrelevant.

    The vast majority of gay people fit almost all stereotypical gender roles of their own sex. You must only notice the people who seem to act differently to you. Conversely, few heterosexual people fulfill every rigid gender stereotype of their sex. For example, there are heterosexual female athletes and heterosexual male artists. I don’t know any gay people who act like the opposite sex. Perhaps you are thinking of transgendered people? Gender identity is separate from sexual orientation.

    Not all gay men are sissies, and not all lesbians are butch. In general, people cover the spectrum of the feminine to masculine scale, and gays and lesbians are no different. It is true that some gay men ‘overdo’ the feminine and some lesbians are really butch, but I think that has more to do with their individual personalities and the society they choose, rather than their sexual orientation.

    I don’t understand. Why *should* they act like heterosexual men and women?

    It’s sometihng I’ve thought about for a long time, and I’ve come to the conclusion, Why are there macho and feminine stereotypes? Are they valid nowadays? And what about straights who act like the opposite sex? There are many straight people who also act like the opposite sex.

    Well first off, the statistic is that 10% of men in the world are gay, if you take the world population, that’s quite a bit. I personally believe that at least 1/3 of those are still ‘in the closet’ or haven’t identified their sexuality yet, and I know personally as a gay guy that their are alot of ‘str8 acting’ gays, because Im one of them, gays that act like the opposite sex actually are a turn-off for me.
