Well, for starters, I'm 22 on a slim frame. People expect my age group to wear their A.Eagle, Hollister, A&F. But I don't. And this *rant* (although I'm not ranting, moreso asking) is not about "Why are you dressed up today?" (hate hearing that almost daily, shit's ooooollllddddd already people!) After meeting new people (not always mind you!); namely girls; they ask "Are you gay?" I don't take offense to it cuz gay people are aight I ask them what makes them think that. "How you're dressed. You're so well dressed." I usually reply, "So one must be gay to dress well?" And for the record, i have NEVER seen a gay guy go out in tailored clothes, FC, etc. They always have that "I'm gay" flair to it, like those "fashion experts" you see on makeover shows. I'm never offended, it's just dumb as hell for people to assume this over something that's not important in the 21st C [read: maintaining respectable image]. I've always believed in the "you don't ask unless you're interested" standpoint, because really, why does someones sexualy pref matter to you, if you aren't interested in the first place. If you aren't, you should be impartial to it and curiosity shouldn't even strike. I *believe* as one gets older, people are less inclined to automatically think this, because it's more accepted for older folk to dress to the nines. But, if you're in the younger demographics, you're probably gay. So, do you guys ever get this because you know how to dress?
