While in the real world, LGBTQ+ persons are just as varied in personality and traits as straight/cisgender ones, it has suited television writers to use common stereotypes for their gay characters in lieu of actually making them "real people". To be fair, gay TV characters in general have become more realistic since the 1990s. But the stereotypes still remain the favorite tool of the hack writer - or the comedy auteur looking to parody or [[BlackComedy shock]].

Asexuality is already represented on the gender and sexuality page, which is a much better fit for a trope about not having a sexual preference. I'm Asexual, and I've never seen anything suggesting that the LGBT community has helped Asexuals figure things out, it seems to be other Asexuals or figuring it out yourself, it's insulting to get claimed by with a group just for being a minority in terms of sexual preference.
* Asexuality: The A of LGBTQIA. People who don't experience attraction to any gender.

Please don't delete this again. Asexuals are queer and part of the LGBT+ community, which I will remind everyone is NOT just LGB, not exclusively the domain of gays and bisexuals (and plenty of aces are also homoromantic or biromantic, anyhow). Visibility is especially important to the asexual community, and plenty of aces actually discovered asexuality through TV Tropes and had their lives vastly improved by finally understanding themselves.

Doesn't really have anything to do with being gay or bisexual.
