There is a longstanding stereotype that LGBTQ people can’t drive. Or rather, they can drive, just not very well.
Some believe it may have to do with the fact that so many gay people migrate from small towns to big cities, where having a car isn’t as necessary, so they never properly develop good driving habits.
Others say it’s because they’re psychologically programmed to always be trying to outrun bullies.
Last year, Mathew Rodriguez at Into published an article about self-driving cars being a major win for gay rights.
“Gays not being able to operate a motor vehicle may be a problem of the past,” Rodriguez wrote, citing a recently-released study in the Annals of Tourism Research that found self-driving cars would soon be taking over the roadways. “I’m talking, of course, about driverless cars.”
And now, the tweets…
I’m gay. I can’t drive. And I don’t want to.

There are three species of gays:
Gays who can’t drive, gays who can’t do math and gays who can’t sit normal but I am a combination of all three

The idea that gays can't drive is a myth made up by city gays, cause rural and suburban lesbians be driving across the country for a first date

I don't believe gays can't drive. Lotsa gays drive well.
What they can't do is park. Gays can't park.

The reason gays are so bad at driving is because Celine Dion and Cyndi Lauper both recorded versions of "I Drove All Night" and took the wheel for us

you're not gay unless you've experienced or are one if these things:
– long distance relationships
– ice coffee WHORE
– doesn't have supportive parents/family
– pothead, alcoholic, athlete, artsy, or a combination of these
– can't drive for SHIT
– either really good/bad at math
