Ya know, not to be stereotypical (and since I started with that, you that I am  ::)), but I have noticed that gay guys...

i think a good rule of them when you're about to make a generalization about a group (republicans are... lesbians seem to...) is to substitute "black people" or "jews" or "puerto ricans" and see if you'd be significantly less likely to open your mouth and say it.

i feel like i always hear "i've noticed based on all my gay acquaintances that they always..." when the same people would never make a blanket statement like that about a racial or religious group b/c they know it's so offensive

"black people are smarter than others and have a natural penchant for law"

"puerto ricans are smarter than others and have a natural penchant for law"

Hmmmm ... the substitution rule lexy poses seems to work OK here with midjeep's generalization. can't imagine too many blacks or puerto ricans getting mad at the above.

EDIT: perhaps the proper critique, if there is one, is the following:

even positive generalizations are harmful insofar as they promote a tendency to generalize in general (!).

even positive generalizations are harmful for a lot of other reasons beside that one.

it may just be that gays are more pretentious, so we learn how to SOUND intelligent, even when we're just thinking about sex and talking out our asses. THalky, Max, do you agree?

shhhh... don't let the breeders know we're not all smarty-pants'

I always think about sex... and make *&^% up like 80% of the time... so I agree.

one of my most frequent phrases is: "I just made that up... but it makes sense so I know I'm right"

ok, but your proposed litmus test was not applicable to midjeep's statement. That's all i was pointing out.

There are sooooo many negative generalizations about homosexuals so I just wanted to make a positive. I did go to a Baptist undergrad, not too many "we love the gays" t-shirts (however, I do think we were pro-lesbian because I know I saw at least 50 girls wearing "We Love Bush" t-shirts....wait, maybe that was for the President  :D)
