  • lmao no. God I hope not. My son has a really awesome barber whose so cute! He has sports stuff all over the walls and shares the shop with another guy. If I had to take a guess based on posters and that they arent gay. I think thats such a generalization. On top of it my dd plays sports, granted shes 6, but I hope she keeps on playing its good for her, and I wouldnt want anyone thinking she was gay because she played sports.

  • No. There are some fields that traditionally have attracted more gay people, but you can't assume someone's gay because of their job.

  • No I don't believe in stereotyping or gender bias, except when it comes to giving birth. And once a man can do that I am all for it!

  • I've had a lot of people assume I was a lesbian because of those things... but no, I certainly do not.

  • Me too Obby. My friend, who is a designer and hair dresser, assumed that I was a lesbian cause I played softball in high school. Even though he won't admit that he's gay. And I know he is because he's straight up told me the idea of having sex with women is disgusting to him. lol
