Because they dress really metrosexual?

Though, the "most" meterosexual people must be guys in Japan and Korea and gay is sooo tabu there. Plus they have some really strong views on gender roles ;P

We don't! That's why ze chicks love us and foreign guys call us gay out of puuure jealousy! ;)

Edit:
Perhaps - in order to avoid any confusion - I should add that the gender role views are obviously changing in Japan too but they just didn't come as far as the west has.

Well, speaking of Alex here, all my stereotypes of gay Swedes flew out of the window after I met him :P

What's bad is when you find straight men who dress in colors even the most stereotypical gay wouldn't wear...

AND these straight men... make Carson Kressley look straight

I live in Tasmania, so my mother and father are definately cousins. *Plays duelling banjos*

I occasionally wear makeup and straighten my hair so that obviously means i'm gay.

My ex was half filipino, i watch anime and i listen to X Japan so that definately means i have an asian fetish.

I'm from a single parent family and live in a lower socio-economic suburb so that means i should be on the dole with 2 kids from 2 different women and a heroin addict instead of in college.

I'm from the Southeren United States - so that makes me an uneducated and uncouth redneck.  Wait... I didn't say that right  but I proved THAT particular ignorant stereotype wrong.

The last person that spoke shit about the South to me got his ass kicked. ;D I've got family living in Florida, and they are some of the nicest people I've ever met.

"All American by birth, and born with Southern pride"!!!!!! ;D

Hmmm let's see..

I was born in Hawaii so I must be Hawaiian....
I'm Puerto Rican so I must speak Spanish...
I'm an Army wife so I must cheat on my husband while he is deployed...

Yeah, I get quite annoyed with these.

- I'm English, so apparently I like drinking tea. (I really, really, REALLY don't)
- I like a few Japanese bands - so apparently I hate all English music and listen to nothing else apart from Japanese-language music
- I have long dyed/groomed hair - so apparently this makes me homosexual.

here is mine:

I´m small and look like child => i´m definitely 12 years old (fact is that i´m 18 years old) PLUS same as Maya:the fact that i´m not high means that i´m cute*arg*
I have black-pink hair => I´m EMO and I´m thief.(stupid Czech Republic)
I like girlish boys => I´m lesbian.
I like doing and saying crazy things and laughing. => I definitely must be idiot.

I'd never assume that about people from Tassie. You do have two heads though, right?

I go to University, so I must be a liberal-minded teenage neo-anarchist. (It makes me feel so horribly old when people find out I'm 23 and look at me as though I'm older than Jesus.)

Also, because I like J-rock and Japanese fashions I must also have a gargantuan anime/manga fetish. (Okay I went through that phase, but it ended 2 years ago :/)

Bah. Writing this has made me feel hideously old ._.

And I don't even look emo o_O

About everything about soldiers I've encountered was not true. Also, female soldier= some super sharp at all situation girla. Or a kind of woman that doesn't cry.

Psychhealth problems= ruined wreck for life.

Talking with certain people= caring about what they say. Quite often, I'm just talking because it makes me simultaneously think easier better on things I really need to solve; people tend to mind verbal side of everything just a bit over much.

Forever love, forever dream.

Aim for the future, or the past will eat you up alive and think you are very yummy.

I always get the usual "You have long hair, you must like Slayer etc" When most of the time I say "No I'm not a fan of them".  I am not a stereotypical metalhead and i do actually like other music.

Now british stereotypes, I always get told by american's that they don't understand my accent (Now if I was from the north or the west country I would understand) but I come from the Midlands and I speak rather obvious clear english.  Thats one I get alot.

I heard that in russia they banned people from dressing like emos/scene kids. does anyone know if that is true?
