I've heard that plugging a microphone into the amp your guitar is in may damage the amp. Is this true?
We're all in the gutter.

(But some of us are looking at the stars.)

Yes it is.
Why?
Guitar amp = for guitars.

probably due to the difference in frequency. speakers might be damaged. i've tried it before. it sounds very weak and thin.

I've got an old Gorilla CG25 that my wife uses with a mic for singing when she plays piano . Hasn't hurt it. I see no reason why vocals should hurt a guitar amp unless maybe you're Barry White, then you should use a bass amp.

Yeah, you can stick vocals through an amp. How could you possibly damage it when a guitar has a larger frequency range than a normal human voice?

I do believe you just used Blink 182 and hard rock in the same sentence. It would seem you're rather confused.
I have a quote in my signature! And it makes fun of blink-182! I'm cool now!

the only damage i could see happening is feedback and that can occur with guitars anyway.

Microphones do feed back more easily tho (at least I think so). I think they might also have different impedances, but I'm not sure if that matters at all.

Does anyone who says it'll do harm have any evidence or reasonable arguments why it might be bad?

A persons amplified voice can in no way harm a guitar amp. That's just ridiculous.
