Jesus Christ, fine, every guy that I've known was gay has talked like that.

Thank you.

Yeah, I'm sure there are gay guys with non-stereotypically gay voices. I personally haven't known any. I'm sure I've interacted with some that I didn't know were gay. I wasn't trying to say if you're gay, you talk like Ross Matthews.
well that's what I thought from reading it

Quote by MakinLattes


I had a friend in middle school who spoke in this stereotypical manner. Guys in our class made a habit of shoving him into the girl's bathroom during lunch. One day we were giving presentations in social studies, and he came out to all of us. He started talking about how he came out to his family and how he was basically disowned, and that they told him they would send him back to the Philippines to "cure" him. It was truly heartbreaking to watch this tiny twelve year old break down in front of entire class.

Unfortunately, that happens a lot :/

Have you ever heard of anthropology?

yeah, i've taken a social anth class and even though at times it still seemed sketchy, at least anthropologists are more sensitive regarding who they're studying, and don't take such a normative approach to everything. there is nothing scientific about this thread--in fact it seems actively anti-scientific.

Quote by MakinLattes
Did you know they were gay or did you assume they were based on their speech pattern?
Know. I'm referring to people that I worked with or go/went to school with, and I've heard them talk about stuff that makes me know their gay (like mentioning a boyfriend or something).

And I really don't assume people are gay by how they talk. I've even had people call me out (like saying something like "man, how the hell could you not know he was gay?") because I never considered somebody would be gay even though they were a total walking stereotype.

I don't mean current anthropologists. It was a rather dehumanizing field for a while.

I think the gross generalizations are funny, in a sad kind of way.

Due, when I say I wonder about the "gay" voice, I don't mean that it is weird or unnatural. Like I stated before, there are plenty of gay people who don't talk that way, and straight people who do; it's just a voice. I just, you know, wonder how it works that way often No offense

Of course there's nothing scientific about this thread, nobody here has conducted a study of speech in heterosexual and homosexual men. However, the question is one that can be answered by such a study, and in fact it would be good to do so both for the fields of human sexual study and speech development. Camp tone and mannerisms clearly do have some correlation with homosexuality, and studying that could cast light on a great deal of questions with regards to the way in which sexuality shapes identity, and indeed how linguistic memes evolve within specific groups.

Part of accepting gay people is accepting that they aren't identical to heterosexual people, and treating them as some group that needs to be protected and guarded from studies that might help illuminate a great deal simply because of some silly knee-jerk response is pointless for everyone. Celebrate the difference and study and understand the way that humans act within certain circumstances and cliques; that's the only way to get any kind of equality.

I can't stand the "F@ggot" voice. Not the gay voice, because there is no such thing.
I know most gay men can't stand that shit being stereotypical for ALL of gay men. It's basically like that super annoying, ditsy girl, Paris Hilton style voice. Think all women like being associated with THAT as a stereotypical voice?

BTW, don't hate on my use of the word F@ggot, plz. There's just no other word that can describe it better: a super annoying pompous gay man

I don't know if it's inherited or just a product of your environment (like accents).

What I do know is that when I get really really drunk I talk with a lisp, so a lot of my friends/drinking associates think that I'm gay

Oh stop

EDIT: Not you^
But do they make fun of you and give ya shit about it like a ribbing? Or are they being serious?

It's called 'Camp'. And that's a lot less offensive. In fact I've never met a gay person who really objects to the word.

this thread is utter nonsense. Despite the fact that it's borderline homophobic, what facts can be ascertained from "All the gay people I know talk like this" or " I know 2 gay people and they speak like that."

I might start a thread about how all people that listen who metal music cut themselves and are emos, cus all the people I know that like metal music, cut themselves and are emos, and I'm sure I could find loads of chavs to agree with me. what is it about metal fans that makes them emo and self-harmers. maybe its because they listen to metal and feel the need to identify with other metal fans, so they cut themselves yeah???

and this thread doesn't help the image that rock and metal fans are generally homophobic, but the casual and open way you discuss an issue like this will make people think twice.

and the answer to this guys questions is...who gives a ****?!?

Lord knows that free inquiry is an evil evil thing and needs to be stopped.

I also quite like the way you rail on stereotyping and then stereotype, it's elegant.

My brother's gay, but you'd never be able to tell just by talking to him. He speaks the same way as anyone else. I feel that this qualifies me to say that the stereotypical "gay voice" is annoying.

Definitely seems like something that's forced to me.

Quote by Bob_Sacamano
I never understood how they got that voice. I mean, either they were practically genetically born to be gay or they changed their voice to what they think suits them. It usually kind of annoys me but I won't treat them different because of it.

First two posts sum it up well for me, I don't care to read further.
#104
None of the people i've met who talk that seem to be doing it intentionally. S'just how they talk.
#106
I've also been to some gay bars and most of the people at the bars don't talk like that. It's just a stereotype.

You are a ****ing idiot, although not as much of a wanker as due. You could very easily ask that question about metalheads and there would be no reason to object to it. There could well be such a correlation. If there is, that could be related to underlying angst (as a product of age) or more serious depression. I'm not sure, but either of those make some sense. I don't know whether there's a correlation or not, but I'm hardly going to get upset at someone asking the question if such a link is established.

EDIT: And surely discussing it casually and openly could be an indicator that people don't think it is a particularly serious issue and they don't really care what a person's sexuality is, or how they talk - it's just a curiosity. Similarly, I don't know why (stereotype, though an accurate one) German people have such a thing for sausages. Probably just a cultural thing, maybe to do with the availability of different meat at different times or something, I don't know. I don't think there's anything immoral about asking that question though.

No, it would be racist if I asked him if he was fascinated by chorizo.

Quote by due 07
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

I know a guy who speaks like that and I've always thought it'd be rude to ask him. I don't want him to feel targeted or anything because of his voice.

Relax lol, is it so wrong for people to wonder about this?


OT: It's a stereotype, and very few gay people use it. The only person I know who talks like that is straight. I doubt he fakes it, I kind of can't imagine him talking any other way. But I get what you mean, I sometimes wonder if some of those guys with effeminate voices make it up.
