It really makes me want to barf when I hear a gay man talk with a lisp It's very disturbing to me. I don't think that is true, it certainly is true of a lot of gay men, it probably has something to do with confidence issues, possibly brought on by people who made them feel like they were somehow less of a person, or shall I use your word "disturbing" people, simply because they were born different. Many straight men have lisps, as well as gay men, it really isnt a very good indicator of one's sexuality, I know plenty of gay people and only a few of them have a lisp. Anglican leaders from around the world reiterated their opposition to the "victimisation or diminishment" of gays and lesbians, saying demonising and persecuting them was "totally against Christian charity and basic principles of pastoral care". The mormons poured millions into forcing through prop 8 in CA: to ban gay marriage.
Where Did Spaniards Get Their ‘Lisp’ From?
Is There a “Gay Voice”? | The New Yorker
Now before you guys start I realize not all gay men talk in a lisp. I'm just curious as to why a lot of them do. Is it something they do consciously or is it something they have no control over? Please, if you're just going to type how much of a homophobe I am than just stop.
How do people get a lisp
In fact, some readers of this site have reported hearing the tale from their Spanish instructors. It's a great story, but it's just that: a story. More precisely, it's an urban legend, one of those stories that is repeated so often that people come to believe it. Like many other legends, it has enough truth—some Spaniards indeed do speak with something that the uninformed might call a lisp—to be believed, provided one doesn't examine the story too closely.
One thing that shows the gay voice it isn't "put-on" or a conscious decision is that most gay men I've met are attracted to masculine sounding voices. Thus it seems weak to believe that gay men would WANT to sound gay if it reduces their perceived attractiveness to other men. Is there any research available on this?
