14 Ways Your Gay Bestie Influenced You More than You Realized

It's not embarrassing that you know every Madonna song ever written, it's embarrassing that everyone else doesn't.

It's a myth (that needs to die) that all lesbians are tomboys. No group ever fully fits into their stereotypes. And sometimes, you find that you're fitting into another group's stereotypes a lot more. Like, gay men for instance. You'll find yourself wondering how you aren't really a gay man. For instance...

 

14. When You & I (by Lady GaGa) comes on the radio and you belt the entire song, start to finish and then get emotional about that fact that she’s finally marrying her cool Nebraska guy.

 

13. When old Madonna, Mariah Carey, Toni Braxton or Whitney Houston comes on the radio and you relive you belt every word and then get emotional about your childhood of playing dress up and vogueing in the bathroom mirror.

 

12. When you realize Rent was put back on Netflix and squeal so high that dolphins can hear you.

 

11. When someone says Blackout was after Circus and you correct them by rattling off all of Britney Spears albums in chronological order because how can this person not know this vital life information?

 

10. Basically whenever there is any mention of a female pop star, and you feel compelled to scream YASSSSS and snap your fingers.


 

9. When you’re feeling chubby so you start ordering vodka soda’s with lime at the bar instead of beers because you know they're lowest in calories.

 

8. When you found yourself crying over Glee's double gay wedding. 

 

 

7. When you defend Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie from haters by reminding them they are reality T.V. OGs. Who could forget how amazing A Simple Life was? 

The disrespect.

 

6. When you’re hitting on a dance major and she starts discussing how influencial jazz dance has become but makes no mention of Michael Jackson, and you feel compelled to school her on the King of Pop.

And she clearly doesn't get life, so you moonwalk away.

 

5. When you find yourself surrounded by drag queens at a gay bar instead of single women.

 

4. When you've forgotten how the scoring in football works and you have to ask your friend why everyone is excited and cheering.

 

3. When you realize that your gay guy friends are the most thoughtful friends, always remembering every detail of your life, and that it's rubbed off on you.

 

2. When hanging around all those drag queens pays off, because they've instructed you on how to be the best wing woman there is (since everyone knows gay men are the experts in this arena).

 

1. When your outfit game is so consistently on fleek, your friends ask for style advice and you have a twinkle in your eye, remembering the day your best friend and you discovered H&M men.
