I don't know why, but it seems like because I'm different, people think that I must be gay. I don't know why this should be the case. I'm different because of my Asperger's. I'm not gay.

Hi.

I grew up my whole childhood with being thinking and accusing me of being gay-- I was not.

I guess I disproved their theory when I started dating a cheerleader at 17.

Anyway, even if you were gay (Or I was) it is no one's business except your own and your mate's/lover's/etc.

Thanks,
Matthew

People thought I was gay too. I wasn't interested in romantic relationships, was a virgin & uncomfortable when guys talked/joked about sex, I'm more sensitive, I like some romantic comedies, I HATED sports but don't get why guys who bend over in front of other guys to make a foot-ball appear & then jump on top of each other are are considered straight & a guy not wanting any part of it is gay, I also like pop music & love songs.

It's always confused me why people use the word gay to describe a homosexual person.

I use the word gay to mean happy.

Maybe they think The Flintstones show is popular with homosexuals. Part of the lyrics in the theme go "we'll have a gay ol time"

Yes, and it doesn't bother me. I'd rather that people think I'm Gay than take advantage of me.

It is not uncommon for people to think this way, unfortunately. Human beings seem to have a propensity for criticizing what they do not understand. Tell them they just don't know the difference between gay and unique, or eccentric.

All the time, man.
It's perfectly acceptable for them to think that way. 'Cause I've got short hair, I skateboard, my style is unique but also pretty boy-ish and I tend to "hang out" more with boys. It kinda makes sense. But, well, I'm actually asexual.

Most Turkish fellas are well aware of homosexuality, transexuality, bisexuality, anything in that spectrum and they're always understanding when it comes to sexuality and rights. But, are they aware of asexuality? Well, not so much.
It isn't really acceptable for people to blame one's sexual orientation for his unique, amazing nature. But it is acceptable for them to try to figure it out by guessing.

yeah, but gay as in quiet, wimpy, cry easily and so on.
being aspie is being different, shy, more emotional and not always having that macho thing going, so they say gay.

Depends on how I myself am feeling and depends on how much people know about my love life.
