wheat beers and beers such as stella are certainly "light" but the problem is people associate light beer with cheap piss water (which most is) and there is so much more out there.
having said that since my favorite is the oatmeal stout at the pub by my house I'd certainly not consider myself a "light" beer person. also i tried a chocolate stout the other day, it was great i'll have to go back.

"i don't drink beer, but here is what you should drink."
great advice from someone who "doesn't drink beer" i'd rather have someone say "I drink beer, this is what i drink"
