    Just because you are gay doesn't mean you have to act like the stereotype. Hell, look at the bears. Bunch of freaking lumberjacks

    My late older cousin who was a classy gentleman would sometimes do the "limp wrist" gesture, but otherwise acted like a regular straight guy. You would never know it unless he was with his boyfriend, or if he told you... great guy.

    I have met a few who act like complete stereotypes though.. with the tight short-shorts, and excessive limping of the wrists and talking like they were extremely feminine. But, when you really think about it... that's all it is.. men expressing their inner femininity (which does not make one homosexual) .. much like how you see girls who are referred to as "Tomboys".

    But yeah. Most of the gays that I know wouldn't fit the stereotypes at all. Except for my cousin's brother in laws boyfriend. Man he's uber gay. Definitely the "girl" in the relationship. Funny as **** though, at my cousin's wedding he was drunk as **** and started stripping.

    I'd just prefer to label them as "dominant" or "submissive", or something like that. There are plenty of labels you can use without having to relate it to a straight relationship. You're right, though.

    Oh, okay. I just figured when you said:

    that you meant that you'd classify them as female. :S

    But I still don't know if I would polarise it like that. I don't believe flamboyance is particularly feminine, just as I don't believe machismo is particularly manly.

    But you can see the two lean heavier towards a particular gender, yes?


    Some gays seem to act more feminine...but none moreso that the hetereosexuals that were all the rage a few years back. So I hardly see it as a trait of gays to be feminine.

    Some are 'softer' in nature, but so are alot of straights...

    Well of course, just like those women who are tomboys but aren't actually lesbians.

    .. kinda funny how that works... stereotype gay men act like women, and stereotype gay women act like men... yet neither would have sex with the opposite gender.

    So I found this. For those of you who are too lazy to watch it, it's a Snickers commercial that aired in the UK for a brief period of time before the US got it banned because it was "against gays". I thought it was pretty goddamn funny, but I think they were stereotyping themselves on this one.

    I don't see how that was "against gays". There wasn't even any confirmation the guy was gay. Besides, power walking does make you look ridiculous (regardless of gender).

    Well, it was gay people who had a problem with it.

    I agree.

    To be honest, I think the gay community was stereotyping themselves when they said they were insulted by the commercial.

    LOL that commercial just made my day! One of the funniest I've seen in awhile!

    A sad day for WiiChat not having the reputation point system.

    You are correct, there. Couldn't have said it better myself.

    EDIT: On a final note, Speedwalking indeed sucks. Stop being a pansy and at least jog, dammit!

    LOL. It aired in Australia for a while, I think there was another one that went with it.

    Then it got raped off air.

    Our Prime Minister I think was offended, cos he was seen powerwalking all over the damn city.

    I wonder if anyone can answer me this.

    Why is it, that lesbians, who obviously like women, are attracted to women with male mannerisms? Ie...they dress like men, hold themselves like men, look like men, even sound like men.

    It doesn't matter whether you're attracted to someone masculine or feminine, because guys do the same when it comes to women. Obviously it just matters that they're female. I'm sure there are plenty of feminine looking lesbians out there, actually, I think the majority of them are. You've been stuck to an old stereotype for a while.

    You've clearly not seen the Frosties advert.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUKSxsxeBK4"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUKSxsxeBK4[/ame]

    Also-[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WAMSX8-zWO8&feature=related"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WAMSX8-zWO8&feature=related[/ame]
    THEY'RE GONNA TASTE GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think that advert was stereotypical of gays, and that's why it was taken off the air. Well, that and the abundant death threats the actor (lol) was recieving.

    One angry man wrote after watching it:

    'He's a revolting, dispicable child, he deserves to die'.

    Other people wrote:

    Death to the Frosties child.

    Those people must have forgotten that people get paid to do those sort of things. A lot of people would have done the same thing. It's like how people feel betrayed when your favorite football player jumps ship because of a better deal. Everyone would do it if they were in that position.
