    Yeah. And a real man has never cried in his life.

    Duhh.

    I was more thinking of society/entertainment as a whole. Going on a guy's trip is now a "Mancation", McConnaghey & Armstrong have to answer questions about their orientation just because they're hanging out, it just all seems a little paranoid to me.
    '

    Well, McConnaghey is obviously flaming.

    The reality is that being gay 40-50 years ago was no cause for joking, it could get you killed in certain places so in that environment, joking that someone was gay was probably cause for at least a fist fight. And of course if you were gay, you needed to be married with kids and keep the gay stuff very discreet.

    Honestly, I'm similar in age to you and I went to an all boys school and that was just the joke that was constantly made. Was/is it a sign of insecurity, repressed homosexuality etc etc?? I'll leave that to the elitist intellectuals on the forum to dissect. Pretty much any institution that consists of a large or exclusively male population is going to have the ghey jokes.

    At the end of the day, the gheyness is confined to a few posters and usually amongst ourselves (the jokes, not the sexual activity). People can always put me or whoever on ignore. I am equally tired of all the "what color whould I wear with this" threads, but I soldier on.

    You really should give the computer back to Jon now and let him have his say.

    wearing certain styles of moustache

    Shut your mouth.

    "Acting gay"? That's all pretty subjective and dependent on your environment. I live in rural VA, don't spit on the ground or talk about NASCAR and attend a weekly film club, so yeah, I'm considered pretty gay in this context.

    I live in San Francisco. I see a lot of guys making out in broad daylight so often that it's not unusual any more. What disturbs me is that the current trend, where acting or showing traits of gayness on the part of straight guys, is considered cool. For example, wearing pink, wearing ear rings, wearing certain styles of moustache, walking in a certain gait are all being emulated by straight guys. This is especially true where I live.

    At the same time, I'm glad that gay people are making progress in their own rights. I know that if I were gay, I'd want the same. A lot of us on this forum have pulled gay jokes or innuendos, myself included, to laugh the matter off. However, guys who consistently do this need to look in the mirror and ask what his d@#k really enjoys. [​IMG]



    So guys making out doesn't disturb you but a guy wearing pink does? Ok....

    I've worn a small diamond stud above a small gold hoop now since the late 80s. Was a ghey trendsetter? I have vowed to take them out in four more years (well, closer to three now), when I hit 40. There's ghey and there's being that guy, which I refuse to be.

    As opposed to the incredible maturity reflected in the belief that wearing the color pink is a gay trait?

    Not necessarily a new thing:

    Having said that, I do think American males are rather unique in how terrifying they find the prospect of being wrongly identified as homosexual and the lengths they'll go to avoid accidentally coming into contact with "gay" clothing/food/cars/furniture/power tools/colors/shapes/oxygen.

    No it is not.

    Wearing pink means your are a douche, pop your collar and you are the biggest douche.

    Typical straight guys paranoia. I've just suggested a few gay traits and it's like an earthquake to some of you. [​IMG] I've always played mind games and it works brilliantly in this context.

    I'd long been waiting for someone to equate pink with gay. Two days at LEAST.

    Awesome.

    C'mon ed it's not having sex with guys that makes you gay. It all has to do with the clothes you wear, the jewlery you wear, your facial hair and how you walk down the street. As long as you don't exhibit any of those gay traits you can do whatever and whomever you'd like and not worry about being gay.
