END OF THIS PAGE

Ben and Winnie-the-Pooh at Disney World Have you ever met someone and wondered, "Is he gay?" What about a family member, and you thought, "I wonder if she is a lesbian?" I often get letters from parents, friends, family members, co-workers, even wives or husbands wondering, worrying, concerned, or just curious about someone they know, if that person might be homosexual or heterosexual, gay or lesbian.

So, here I offer a guide (in game form) to assist you in telling if "someone else" is gay, lesbian, or straight. On the next page, I offer a guide (in game form) to tell if "you" might be gay.

I hope this will assist you in knowing more about people who are gay and lesbian, and how to relate to and understand them. Feel free to write to me if you have any questions, or need further assistance. Thanks, Ben

GAME ONE

Read each question carefully. When you think you know the answer, hold your mouse pointer in place over the answer you think is correct, gay (homosexual) or straight (heterosexual). In a couple of seconds, the highlighted answer will appear. Now, do not cheat, and just highlight every answer. Really try. Keep track of your score (twenty questions total) for your "evaluation" at the end of the game. For Those Whose Highlight Function Will Not Work, Answers May Be Found At The End Of The Test.

01. Your new male co-worker comes to work almost each day wearing a nice tie, pants, and a long-sleeve pink dress shirt. Pink? He obviously is... Nothing Says Dressy Like A Pink Dress Shirt... I Think... Not Sure... Let Me Get Back To You On It

WRONG. RIGHT. He just accidentally washed all of his white dress shirts with a red towel; typical male.

02. You visit your date's apartment for the first time, after your third date, and discover he has a teddy lying on his bed? You suspect he might actually be... Which Is Cuter? The Teddy Bear Or The Guy?

WRONG. RIGHT. Not teddy bear, teddy; left by the woman he was with last night.  You might want to get a different boyfriend.

03. On a trip to see a female business client, you notice she has two pictures of a young woman on her desk, and one of the pictures shows the two of them hugging together. She could be... Support The Military - Men And Women

WRONG. RIGHT. It is her sister, serving in the military overseas.

04. Your boyfriend's brother travels the country working as a ranch hand in the rodeo circuit. He is not married, and never speaks of a girlfriend. He probably is... Cowboys. Just Saying The Word Is Nice.

RIGHT. But, in this case only the lack of a girlfriend is the clue, and even that is not always a sign. WRONG.

05. Your new boss wants to install track lighting in all of the offices at work, and shows you paint samples for all of the walls to help him decide between "French burgundy," or "Italian butter cr�me." He surely is... Track Lighting Really Is Not So Bad If It Is Done Right

WRONG. RIGHT. His former job was working as a supervisor in a hardware decorating store.

06. You call a female friend on the telephone, ask her if she wants to go shopping at the mall, and she says she cannot because the football game is on television this afternoon. Football over shopping? She obviously is... Seriously? Football Over Shopping?

WRONG. RIGHT. She likes to look at all the cute football player butts.

07. Your sister tells you, for her birthday she wants a 110-piece wrench set. She may have turned... At Least Once In Your Life You Will Wish You Had A Wrench Set

WRONG. RIGHT. And when your car breaks down, you will thank her for knowing how to take care of herself and you, too.

08. You discover your husband's secret stash of nude male pornography, and find him chatting online in a gay male chatroom. Is he... Must Be A Gym Chatroom

RIGHT. You are not that clueless, are you? WRONG.

09. Your boyfriend does not make you cereal, eggs, and toast for breakfast, but an egg, bacon, cheese, and broccoli Quiche? Your first clue; he could be... Does Anyone Admit To Liking Quiche?

WRONG. RIGHT.  I almost forgot, he is French, and what a kisser. Swoon.

10. You decide to make your new boyfriend dinner at his place. While looking in his kitchen cabinets you discover he has all of his herbs and spices arranged in alphabetical order. You are suspicious, he might be... Do You File 'Garlic Salt' Alphabetically Under 'Garlic' Or 'Salt?'

WRONG. RIGHT.  He is the new chef at the best restaurant in town.

11. One of your co-workers invites everyone in the office to his apartment pool. You notice he has his right nipple pierced. At first you hesitate, trying to remember whether it is the left or right nipple, or earlobe that means you are gay. Then, you remember. He is... Why Are You Staring At Nipples Anyway?

RIGHT.  But, it was when he introduced you to his boyfriend.  Which nipple or earlobe does not mean anything. WRONG.

12. Over the weekend, you run into a male co-worker coming out of a grocery store wearing black leather pants, leather vest, no shirt, a leather baseball cap, and thick leather and metal boots. At first, you are shocked, never seen him wear such clothing. Then, you wonder, could he be... Does The Man Make The Clothes Or The Clothes Make The Man?

WRONG. RIGHT.  There he goes, getting on his motorcycle.  That makes sense.

13. Your female next-door neighbor, lives alone, and goes on and on about wearing Birkenstock shoes, and how you should, too. She also cuts her hair short, and wears flannel a lot. You wonder if she is... I Do Not Understand Them; But, I Respect Them

WRONG. RIGHT.  She�s eighty years old, is cold all the time, and has bad feet.

14. You and the other male co-workers are on a work break. You are discussing the latest football scores. When you ask one of your co-workers what he thinks, he says he does not watch football. Everyone stops talking, and stares at him. You wonder if he might secretly be... This Is About As Close To Liking Playing Football I Ever Got - Ben

WRONG. RIGHT.  He is six foot, seven inches tall, and played basketball in college.

15. Your little brother is growing up, and you visit his apartment for the first time. There are dirty clothes everywhere on the floor, a torn poster of a sexy almost nude cheerleader on the wall, nothing in the refrigerator, and one of the legs on the coffee table is missing, being held up by two stacked beer cans. At first, you are shocked, but then amused, because, after looking closer at the cheerleader, you know he is... The Clothes Will Not Walk To The Hamper By Themselves, Mister. Pick Them Up!

RIGHT.  It is a male cheerleader on the poster, and if he is ever going to have a life partner, you better teach him how to start cleaning up after himself. WRONG.

16. Your male high school friend tells you his favorite holiday is "Halloween?" You have long suspected, and now you know he is... Disney 'Pinocchio' Halloween Mask, Gillette Shaving Advertising Promotion, 1939

WRONG. RIGHT.  He likes to play pranks and practical jokes on people, not dress up in drag, and even drag is not a sign, too.

17. Your sister, who lives in the United States, and who does not live on a farm, just bought her fourth pick-up truck, it is bigger than the last one, and she has already personalized it with stickers and a hanging thing on the read view mirror. She is probably... If A Gay Man Drives A Pick-Up Truck, What Does That Mean?

RIGHT.  Not because of the pick-up, but because she always puts a rainbow sticker on the bumper. In most locations, the rainbow flag is one of many symbols used by gays and lesbians. However, this can be slightly confusing in Europe, where the rainbow flag also happens to represent an environmental peace political party. WRONG.

18. You are at a party, and everyone is playing "Truth or Dare." A male friend answers you with "Dare." So, you ask him to tongue kiss the guy on his right, and he does. Finally, you know for sure he is... Don't Look, Ethel! Don't Look!... Too Late

WRONG. RIGHT.  Hello?  It is just a game, nothing more.  Please.

19. Your aunt has been "roommates" with the same woman for over twenty years. She always comes to every family gathering, but everyone calls her "Aunt Joan's friend." Your aunt is probably... Friend? Golf Friend?  Bridge Club Friend?

RIGHT. And your family should have started speaking of your Aunt's lover as more than a 'friend' long, long ago.  Why don't you begin today? WRONG.

20. Your best friend's dad is gay. You wonder; could your friend be...Gay Dads With Children...'Run, Toto, Run'

RIGHT. Maybe, maybe not; if so, it has nothing to do with dad. RIGHT.  Maybe, maybe not; if so, it has nothing to do with dad.

So, how did you do? E-mail me and tell me your score, how you did, and if you enjoyed playing this game.

15-20 questions right? You are very knowledgeable about sexuality and sexual orientation, and do not allow stereotypes or cultural differences to confuse you.

10-15 questions right? You are learning, have begun to challenge generalizations about people, and you check into things before assuming and labeling a person.

05-10 questions right? You cannot make up your mind, still cling to some false beliefs about people, but are capable of learning, and growing.

00-05 questions right? I am surprised you are even visiting this website, unless it is to further or reinforce your personal agenda, and false belief system about people.

A Gay Christian Online humorous parody article. NOT meant to be taken seriously. Designed to poke fun at and point out many of the false beliefs and stereotypes about gays and lesbians, and the various unproven or falsely stated and yet believed "theories" about the cause(s) of homosexuality.

Do You Sleep With A Teddy?No teddy collecting, pink shirt and leather pants wearing, basketball playing French chefs were harmed in the making of this parody.
