Emily Heller doesn't understand why some people say certain things out loud. (2:41)

I MOVED HERE RECENTLY.I MOVED FROM SAN FRANCISCO.

YEAH.

A LOT OF TIMES WHEN I TELLPEOPLE I'M FROM SAN FRANCISCO,

THE RESPONSE IS THE SAME,IT'S ALWAYS, "OH, SAN FRANCISCO.

THAT'S A NICE CITY,BUT PRETTY GAY, RIGHT?"

AND I UNDERSTANDWHY PEOPLE THINK THAT.

I DON'T UNDERSTANDWHY THEY SAY IT OUT LOUD.

HERE'S THE THING, THOUGH.I'VE LOOKED UP THE STATISTICS.

AND SAN FRANCISCOIS ONLY 25% GAY.

SO THAT'S1 OUT OF EVERY 4 PEOPLE.

SO THAT'S LIKE SAYING,"OH, YOU LIKE THE BEATLES?

YEAH. THEY'RE PRETTY GOOD.

BUT WHY ARE THEY ALL RINGO?"

IT JUST FEELS LIKE EVERYONEOF THEM IS JUST RINGO,

RINGO.

RINGO.

THEY'RE SO IN YOUR FACEABOUT IT.

I'M NOT A LESBIAN.

I KNOW I HAVE TO SAY THAT INORDER FOR PEOPLE TO KNOW IT.

BUT I CONSIDER MYSELF AN ALLY,YOU KNOW?

AND I'VE NOTICED THAT THERE AREA LOT OF WAYS IN WHICH GAY MEN,

AND GAY WOMEN ARE TREATED VERYDIFFERENTLY BY SOCIETY,

LIKE A LOT OF TIMES WHEN PEOPLEDO IMPRESSIONS OF GAY MEN,

THERE'S A VERY SPECIFICVOICE THAT THEY USE.

IT'S ALMOST LIKE AN ACCENTOR A CADENCE,

A GAY-DENCE,IF YOU WOULD--

BUT THERE'S NO SUCHVOICE FOR LESBIANS, RIGHT?

THERE'S NO LESBIAN ACCENT.

AND I THINK THAT'S WEIRD,AND I THINK IT'S UNFAIR.

I THINK THERE NEEDS TO BE ONE.

AND I'VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT IT.

I THINK, HERE ME OUT,

I THINK IT SHOULD BEA REALLY BAD FAKE FRENCH ACCENT.

BECAUSE HOW GREAT WOULD THAT BE

IF ONE DAY YOUR TEENAGEDAUGHTER SAT YOU DOWN

AND WAS JUST LIKE,"MOM, DAD,

(French accent)I HAVE SOMEZIN TO TELL YOU."

"ZIS IS JUST, UH,WHO I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN.

I WAS BORN ZIS WAY."

"YOU DID NOTHING WRONG."

"I WANT YOU TO BE HAPPY FOR ME."

"I AM JUSTHOW YOU SAY...

VERY ANGRY FOR ZE LADY CARPET."

"LADY CARPET?"
