Inspired by dcwrestlefan's recent thread "why are you straight?", an interesting twist on the ubiquitous "why are you gay?" and "why are you x%/y%?" threads, I found myself reflecting upon this question that is posed to me all the damn time. In general I hate repeating myself, so I try to come up with a fresh answer each and every time someone asks me this: "so.... what's up with that 1% gay in your profile???" I actually revealed the real reason for this a long time ago, shortly after I changed my status from 100% straight to 99%. If someone is willing to do the digging they might be able to find that. I've since referenced this post or made other reasonable explanations in similar threads a few times. But that's not as much fun as the answers I tend to give people in the chat room or who pm me with the above hopelessly unoriginal question. I get asked this probably twice a week on average so I'm sure I've forgotten many of my responses, but here are some of my favorites that I could recall: Why am I 1% gay? (most of these are even true) - I own a Versace shirt - I can sing from memory more than one showtune - I'm feeling fabulous - I once lived within the greater metropolitan area of San Francisco - I've been to Europe - when I was a child I thought about being an interior decorator - I like fucking dudes in the ass - my favorite shirt is purple - I own an iPod - I'm a reasonably good dancer - I don't watch sports - I don't drink beer - I throw tupperware parties - when I was four I used to cross-dress in my big sister's clothes - I've thought about working as a flight attendant - I've cut my own hair - I own every animated Disney movie on DVD, and the Wizard of Oz - I saw Titanic in movie theaters 8 times - the first concert I attended was Debbie Gibson - I used to sleep in a Strawberry Shortcake nightgown - I Tivo'd a show on Logo once Anybody else have any humorous answers to this asinine question?
