They'll Know We are Gay By Our Cars

My kids have teased me about this, and I have pointed it out to more than one or more friends who are lesbian about, you know, the um, er, car or truck they drive. When we had a red Chevy S-10, we felt very butch. We were told it was an appropriate truck for us to drive, as if a Ford or Toyota Tacoma wasn't butch enough.

I confess: I own a Jetta and a Cabrio.

I am so gay.

And it isn't just my friends who picked this up. On 265gay.com there was a list of the top 10 gay and lesbian cars:

1 VW Rabbit
2 VW Eos
3 Mazda MX-5 Miata and Audi A3 - tie
4 Mazda MAZDA3 and VW Jetta - tie
5 Toyota Yaris
6 Saab 9-3 and Dodge Caliber -tie
7 Volvo C30
8 smart fortwo
9 Toyota Matrix and MINI Cooper - tie
10 Maserati GranTurismo

While VW doesn't make Cabrios any more, they replaced them with the VW Eos.

So are you telling me that I'm no longer gay because we drive a Jeep (something) and a Murano. OMG and all along it had to do with cars and not the water......who knew.

My partner had and still wants a Jeep. And he wants a Murano!

It has everything to do with the car, the upholstery, the German engineering, the "thunk" of the door when it closes...
