Lie about being gay?

Postby zooroaster » Thu Nov 13, 2008 4:43 am

I have often considered it being a far easier thing to telling someone I was gay versus the consequences of explaining the patterns of behaviour of the schizoid model. Ironic, I know.

Has anyone ever thought this or even done it?

That could have awkward moments...

Your at work and your boss puts his arm on your shoulder... "I think you will go far in this company. Would you like to come over to my place and see my new jacuzzi?"

I'm pretty sure he doesn't own a jacuzzi.

Explaining any kind of pattern, especially something as complex as schizoid behavior seems like it would be difficult if it is not already evident to the person you are explaining it to.

By the way, zorro, how do you go about explaining the pattern of schizoid behavior, if you are motivated to explain.

I'm curious about one thing, though. How would being gay explain a pattern of schizoid behavior? There are many gay people who are extroverted and sociable. Would telling someone that you're gay really fit as a plausible explanation for any obvious schizoid traits you exhibit?

Funny coinincedence. I've used this excuse too.

With the willing help of a female friend, I managed to convince an overbearing and obnoxious co-worker that I was, in fact, a raging lesbian, and he had absolutely no chance whatsoever.

I did it out of desperation, because rational discussion wasn't working, and it reached a point where I seriously considered injuring him and blaming it on "sexual harassment defense."

As counter-productive to understanding as it is, jumping on the stereotypes of other 'aberrant minorities' can be the easiest way to get rid of unwanted attention. Assumptions about homosexual lifestyle and characteristics made by the a lot of people are a convenient, if somewhat unethical, loophole that excuses schizoid behavior without much debate.

tl;dr you use people's ignorance/prejudice to your advantage

There was one time when this girl just wouldn't get the hint that I didn't care about what she had to say, how she felt, and what she thought of me. She just wouldn't stop bugging me. She got my number and my aim address and just wouldn't let me go, so one day I told her, "I'm gay."

It worked. I haven't had to do it more than once though. A lot of people already think I'm gay anyway, so it doesn't really matter.
