I've heard this bullshit online saying a majority of heterosexual women tend to be shorter while gay men also happen to be shorter as well. This leaves taller men being most likely straight and taller women to be lesbian. Do you believe this? I don't, but with all the gay guys I have met, they were all around 5'7-5'8?

Obviously, this is complete bullshit. But I think I know why people came up with this in the first place. Many conservative, stuck-up people confuse sexual orientation with gender identity and on top of that, they confuse gender identity with the physical sex you are (male/female). So they believe that a gay man is basically by definition more feminine (and thus more female-like) than a straight guy and a lesbian woman by definition for masculine (and thus more man-like) than a straight woman.
This, however, is also complete rubbish and anyone who knows a decent amount of homosexual folks (men and women) understands that they come in all forms and shades, just like straight people. Gay men are not inherently more feminine, weak and soft as straight men and lesbian women are not inherently more rough and manly than straight girls. Sure, there are people like that, but there are also gay men who are very manly and lesbian women who are very feminine. There are also straight people who don't fit into this stupid black-and-white pattern that consevatives have. For example I am a straight guy but I am very softy and my very first, real girlfriend is straight and a pretty manly girl.
For some, funny reason, we have tons of openly gay men as hosts of talk shows or game shows on our national TV station in my country (which covers about 90% of the audience, since we don't have any big private channels). Most of these men look completely "normal" and you'd never guess that they are gay. Out of about six hosts I can spontaneously think of, there is only one guy where you immediately see it. All the other ones look just like any other man and I wouldn't know that they're gay had they not publicly said it in an interview some time. I also know two gay men personally and ironically, they are everything but feminine. They are both pretty tall (6 ft 2 or 6 ft 3) and really really fit and muscular. They look more manly than most of those homophobic haters ;-).1
