LGBT stereotypes are conventional, formulaic generalizations , opinions, or images about gay , lesbian , bisexual or transgendered people, based on their sexual orientation or gender identity . Stereotypes may be learned through personal experience or indirect means; parents, teachers, peers or the mass media, [1] though lack of first hand experience tends to lead to more reliance on stereotypes. [2] Negative stereotyping is often a result of homophobia , biphobia , and transphobia . [3] Positive stereotypes, or 'countertypes,' also exist but may be no less harmful, as they are still oversimplified views of the group being stereotyped. [4] However, unlike ethnic and animal stereotypes , LGBT stereotypes are still widely believed to be true by the general public today, and are usually less disputed. LGBT stereotypes are not limited to one country or region.[ citation needed ] Contents [ hide ] 1 Homosexual men 1.1 Appearance and mannerisms 1.2 Σεξ ανδ ρελατιονσηιπσ 2 Homosexual women 3 Βισεξυαλ πεοπλε 4 Τρανσγενδερεδ πεοπλε 5 Σεε αλσο 6 Ρεφερενχεσ [ edit ] Homosexual men Gay men are most often stereotyped as being effeminateHYPERLINK \l "cite_note- chrysler-4"[5] despite the fact that gender identity and sexual orientation are widely accepted to be distinct from each other.
