college fad for a while: "Campus Crusade for Cthulhu". It was making
fun of the "Campus Crusade for Christ", which had the slogan "I found
it." The Cthulhu version's slogan was "It found me."
I also knew a guy who insisted that any woman who refused to have sex
with him must be a Lesbian. (Until I knew him I really didn't know
there were seriously such men walking the earth.) Since at the time I
was self-orienting as gay, I reasoned that I must be straight, since I
didn't want to sleep with him either.
People get strange ideas. I wouldn't worry too much about anyone who
puts too much weight on either Cthulhu or sexual orientation of others
based on extremely limited psychological data.
There is a(n) RPG called "Call of Cthulhu", and it's in the D&D vein.
Dice, a "Keeper" (nee dungeon master), players, and general carnage.

points, and if you lose too many of them at once facing some nether
terror, you're catatonic, possibly out of the game for "years", or you

Shub-Niggurathology? And an N-meter? (Necronomicon, of course!)
Remember that there are gullible people everywhere who will believe
*anything*, particularly if it smacks of the supernatural, and most
especially if there's a flavor of the demonic. Add to the "devil
worship" mix a hint of sexual "perversity" and you have a recipe
guaranteed to get religious fundamentalists (as a rule the most
gullible when it comes to believing in outre cults) lo most uptight
Or perhaps someone was just yanking your chain.
