Welcome, The Gaytheist!

Hello hello! The Flaming Pi summoned me from the YouTube netherworld and said that I should join, so I followed his advice. I'm glad to find so many other LGBT atheists here. :-)

Perhaps he meant lisping, lisp can sound like hiss.
Comment by Marx on May 13, 2010 at 10:03am
I think what they may be referring to is that people with certain types of lisp cannot pronounce an "s" sound in words, and instead pronounce the "s" as "th". If the "th" sound is exaggerated by drawing it out (thhhhh) it sounds somewhat like a hiss. What in the world this has to do with being gay is beyond me, but I have seen gay friends camping it up and part of the camp is drawing out the "s" sound in words, which creates a hissing sound.

Charles, I think there are other hissers in the animal kingdom, including the hissing cockroach. I can't think of others offhand. Oh, maybe the bride of Frankenstein.

You're welcome. Mistaking the stereotypical lisp for a hiss sounds possible.

Sorry about that, I meant to say "not including myself".
Comment by The Flaming Pi on May 13, 2010 at 12:16am
Well, that's three people (including myself) who have never heard of the "gay hiss" thing.

Thank you Daniel the Apostate, Grundgetta, and Charles H Downs. I'm convinced my friend was confusing the hiss and the lisp. He couldn't elaborate further. He simply thought there was some stereotype involving hissing. Thank you all, once again. I just needed a couple more people backing me on this.

I certainly never have.
Comment by Daniel W on May 12, 2010 at 8:09am
I have never heard of hissing as something that gays do. It's a strange thing to say. You should ask your friend to elaborate.
