Why do people trying to talk like a gay person just talk with a lisp?
I’ve known many a gay man in my day and I’m not sure one of them ever had a lisp, yet when someone is trying to mimic a gay man, he simply does the limp wrist thing and talks with a lisp. Where did this come from, and why does the stereotype continue? Have the people doing this routine ever met a real gay person?
