Many people still say some highly inappropriate things to gay people, whether out of hate, fear, or ignorance. With that in mind, here are 20 things you should never say to gay people.
This statement is problematic for a number of reasons. First, you come off as questioning whether a person truly knows their own mind. Finally, this statement makes several assumptions about what it means to really be gay or straight.
Just as straight people come in all shapes, sizes, and various levels of masculine and feminine, so too do gay people. Telling someone they are your gay best friend devalues your relationship.
