Sports, but only the kind where people don't make any sort of physical contact.

No one here is concerned about anything, it's a phenomenon we are just curious about.

I've wondered why too. Granted, there are a bunch of gay guys who don't talk like that, and straight guys who do. I've assumed hormones play a factor.

i guess i just find it interesting that of all three "gay accent" threads i've seen here, none of them have been started by a queer person. and it seems like all three of these threads have pretty hostile heteronormative undertones--it's almost like people are buttmad not everyone speaks like them.

There's only one conclusion...

I haven't seen either of the other threads, but at least on this one I'm not really seeing anything homophobic or hostile or anything like that. That's at least not where I'm coming from. I think most people on the thread (I included) are just genuinely curious about it.

I'm in a music faculty too and some of the voices I hear are mental. I mean, there are some tenors around that if you didn't see them, you'd swear it was a woman speaking. I wonder about this all the time, because it seems odd to me that sexuality could have an effect on tone of voice or that you could learn to speak so radically different. It would be like if I just started talking with a Scottish accent all of a sudden and never stopped.

Then again, there are straight guys that talk with the gay voice so

I only know two gay guys who talk like that. The rest talk no different than anyone else I know. One of my friends came out a few years ago and only recently did he start to talk with the gay accent. I figure it's just a cultural thing. If you hang around any group of people long enough, you'll develop your own distinct characteristics and it will spread to other people who join the group. I asked one of my gay friends (who didn't have the accent) about it and he said he had no idea why so many gay guys had it, but figured it was a cultural thing like I mentioned.

I've met plenty of people who talk like that, regardless of orientation. It's very bizarre. There isn't a "gay" speech pattern for women, which makes it even more weird. I always thought it would be rude to ask someone if they were forcing themselves to talk like that. I think some gay guys just happen to be born with that kind of "accent," and some guys force themselves to talk like that.

I honestly don't know, and I don't care enough to find out.

considering you called the way a subset of gay men speak "weird," it does feel like that's where you're coming from.

I find it interesting how you're the only hostile one in this "hostile heteronormative undertoned" thread.

if people were that interested in finding out, you'd think it would have occured to one of the many bright minds of the pit to either (a) ask someone who speaks that way or (b) do a two second google search. **** you all

It's also kind of disgusting how you use whatever socially imposed privilege you have to leap to the defense of minority groups at every opportunity.

How is it disgusting? He's just leveling the playing field. And on top of that, he's not exactly wrong, is he?

I think he just has a reputation now where he has to go mental at the slightest hint of anything anyone does being outside of the norm.

It's more fun when he brings it up in an unrelated discussion

I'll bet the straight guys who talk like that only do so to trick their female friends into thinking that they're gay so they can totes get involved in their sexy slumber parties and they can practice kissing and determine who has the nicest breasts. Clever bastards.
