Things not to say to gay teenagers

Post by Guest on Tue Nov 17, 2015 2:19 pm

I know sometimes people, and I mean like my age or a couple years older or younger feel uncomfortable talking to someone who is gay. But it's okay, I got the same interests as many straight people do, and act pretty much the same other than the fact that I like boys, not girls.
But, here are some things I have heard that are hurtful to me, and I thought I would share them with you, things that hurt gay kids you should not say:

How old where you when you chose to be a gay?
You should go out a girl and see what you’re missing.
Oh my god, that’s so gay!
How do you tell if someone is gay?
You like sports? But I thought you were gay?
I would never have known you were gay. You seem so straight.

I got 2 friends that are gay, and you are correct Austyn, nothing lights a fire under them more than if someone says these things. Sometimes, people just do not engage their brain before they speak.
