Is it really considered gay or ***** for a guy to sit with their legs crossed or something.

I tend to do it a lot and its comfortable for me yet people seem to always call me out on it acting all overly macho or something.

Whats the big deal with sitting with your legs crossed because I suppose its something I mustve simulated of my grandpa because Ive always been doing it and lok back at old pictures its something he used to do too.

Maybe it's how they are crossed, no?

i also sometimes stand akimbo? with my hand on my waist with my posture a bit askew when waiting for something like that may be a gay posture or stance. i even wear pink shirts to work. and style my hair all differently at times to work. people notice, but they never once questioned my manlihood. they always say like, "if brian can wear a pink shirt, then so can i"

i have seen the mailclerk here wear a pink shirt because he said i inspired him.
duh

Obviously there's nothing wrong with it. Sit the way you want to.

It depends on whether you're eating quiche or not

Oh come on, do you people seriously worry about such things? Is it such a problem or a deeply-seated insecurity? People will always find a reason to dislike you or assume things so why bother worrying...

Hell, even if people assume you're "gay" or you are sitting "*****" as you said, what is the problem there?

Well its not that I am insecure about sitting that way because I still do it.

I just never realized it was considered 'unmanly' until it started being pointed out and wanted to know if it was a universal thing that people thinko f it as being unmanly or if its just the people in my community

I cross my legs, so have no worry. Nothing I do is ****.

Only if you are doing it on another man's naked lap.
