  • lmfao!! ive never heard that before
  • No, why would you think that. Animal lovers are animal lovers.....don't matter your gender...+4
  • I've never heard that before either.
  • it dont matter on the gender to have a cat
  • Well ive never heard anyone say that but if they did id give them a mouth full ,why the hell is it gay to own a cat just cause youre a man if men didnt own cats they would be loads of cats without homes and in shelters, i know loads of men who own a cat and treat them like babys and none of them are gay.
  • Nonsense. I had many cats.
  • I can't see that happening,My buddy has a cat and has had her for years.I see nothing wrong with a cat for a pet.Now if you asked about a ferret.....HAHA:p
  • Women never get called lesbians for having a dog. Maybe that idea will die off.
  • I don't know, I've never heard of that.
  • I don't think it is gay at all....some people are just superficial. Not sure what superficial person started such ridiculous an idea.
  • Generally cats posses many characteristics that are stereotypically looked on as female. Small, gentle, effete, snobbish, cruel. etc... Thus it stands to reason a guy who has a cat as a pet might have the same stereotypical female characteristics attributed to gay men. Where did it begin? Stereotypes are generally born out of ignorance.
  • The unfounded rumor was traced back to a hetero dog kennel in San Francisco, California. Those bitches!
  • Cats are wonderful companions for people of any age and gender. My husband had a cat for a pet until we got married.... 17 years with his beloved Siamese cat. Plus, you are hanging with Sexy Saramonster so you are 100 percent hetero.
  • That is a strange one must be just another homophobic old wives tale.
  • I've never heard that before. I have a cat. Her name is Dog. =P
  • I'm really surprised that no one has heard this. I have heard this by so many people that I couldn't put a number to it. I guess it's better that way.
  • yes, its pretty effing gay. I mean when I said you had a cat my brother in-law came in from the other room and said, "He has a CAT!?" and you know Reed, he is the most mellow metro man ever and even he thinks it was gay. Then when my family heard on Christmas that you had a cat...oh man my dad laughed. I had to make excuses for it.
  • I've never heard that one before. I don't think it's gay. When I met my husband he had a cat, and we still have the damn thing. He's annoying as Hell! But we still have him. : )
  • Having a cat is so gay that the gay hairdresser who lives next to me was like, "No fuck that...I aint havin' no cat...that's just too gay for this bitch right here! Holla"
  • I have a cat. I'm definitely not gay. I didn't know people thought guys with cats were gay, is that true?
  • No Clue. Stupid Media!
  • It has always been thought of that cats have "feminine" qualities and are better suited for women, rather than men. However, this is just a false belief and I happen to have a very nice cat named Cornell.
  • I've never thought that. I have a bigger problem with guys that don't like animals. Liking cats, in particular, has always been a good litmus test to a guy being good relationship material...kind of like respecting independence while still being appropriately sensitive and playful.
  • Then Im real gay. I have three. They keep my three dogs busy.
  • Because men are associated with hunting, a hunter has traditionally used a dog.
  • It began where all stupid ideas begin - in some dummy's head. Besides, what's wrong with being gay?
  • I dunno. Because those people are sexually insecure?
  • It is all a big misunderstanding. Back in the oldin days, some really manly guy, who everyone thought was straight but was really gay and trying to come out of the closet, said "I don't really like pussy that much," and everyone just assumed that he meant felines, being that he was so manly. It was therefore, on that very day, that people began the assumption that manly men should not have cats and if you did have one then you were secretly a woman in disguise, penis or not. Why? You gotta cat or something?
  • I've never heard that. But I've often seen gay men with their little dogs all dressed up and pretty, but not with cats.
  • I have not heard that either.
  • Never heard of it actually that's how my husband first got me to to his house he said do you like cats I said I love them he said oh then come to my house I have a beautiful cat well I fell for it seen the cat and never left....
  • I never heard of that but I know a lot of men don't like cats. I wouldn't consider a man gay if he had a cat though.
  • Because men think having a big dog makes them manly instead of having a little kitty. Secure men know it doesn't matter. Like my hubby who loves our kitties.
  • Probably some elementary school kids started joking about it one day.
  • That is the silliest thing i have heard all day, maybe they are gay and trying to deflect attention?
  • Likey due to the fact that cats keep themselves extremely clean all the time and hence can easily and naturally become an analogy to women. On the othe hand, dogs are playful and messy and can naturally be an an analogy to men. So in conclusion, this stereotypical idea might have been seeded from the mind of a very messy/dirty guy, lol!
  • SOMEONE'S MIND IS WARPED. I'M NOT GAY AND I HAVE 6 CATS.
  • I've never heard that, particularly. Many of my male friends have cats that they love, and no one's every said they're gay. But, if I had to hazard a guess, it would be that cats are stereotypically "female" and dogs are stereotypically "male"--I mean in terms of how society conceives of them--so a male doing a typically female thing is stereotypically "gay." It's ridiculous, obviously.
  • aaah the love of my life was my cat such an angel, Gone to heaven now, but still in my heart. But i'm not Gay, and never heard that before. All of my Gay friends have dogs.
  • LOL Because Cats are stupid. Dogs are mans best friend!
  • Who knows. It seems that some people stereotype everyone and hate everything. They aren't happy unless they daily inject themselves with a huge dose of negativity. I guess they figure that a guy needs to have 6 pit bulls, 4 German Sheppards, 3 vultures, and an assortment of other carnivorous animals patrolling their back yard before they will be accepted as a man.
