Don't hate on my use of the word "nigger," please. There's just no other way I can reveal my bigotry and ignorance.

Well aren't you just a little fag.

Just because somebody isn't a straight, white male doesn't mean they are magically immune to being beaked for ridiculous aspects of themself that are, by and large, completely unrelated to things they have no control over and there is nothing wrong with anyways (such as being gay). The voice is bloody stupid and annoying and it isn't rooted in "gayness" or anything (although a lot of gay people have it). You lot are ridiculous.

being gay, I don't understand it myself. I've never had the accent, although recently I've realized I'm starting to pronounce words and say things like the stereotypical voice

and what's weird is I don't have anyone to learn it from besides the very seldom times I do hear it on tv or like customers where I work.

but the thing is I'd say I hear something like a Russian accent more than I do a "gay" accent, and I cannot immitate one nor does it affect my normal accent. Yet sometimes the things I say will come out sounding "gay"

I'm not saying it's not adopted or learned, but, from what I personally experience, it's not something that's actually forced.

idk man idk

I knew a guy whose voice changed completely like this. He also picked up other mannerisms, too. It's a curious phenomenon.

Can't stand most camp people as it usually involves them trying to be the centre of attention or making a drama out of things.

I usually have to call them out when they start bullshitting or making a big deal out of something and then people get eggy with me because they think i've got a problem with gays.

Then again i'm basing this on 2 people I know so maybe one day there will be a camp person I like.

None of this reply has **** all to do with the point of the post you quoted.

I sincerely hope you noticed that.

My brother has a slightly effeminate voice, but he doesn't do a 'gay accent', it's just the way he talks.

I tend to do that, quote a post and then write an actual post responding to a differnet dude. Drugs.
#132
Yeah, actually I just realized that not two seconds before seeing your reply just now. Only the "fag" bit was aimed at me.


Which is true.

Totes gay for teh cox.

I don't care how you meant it, I knew you didn't mean in the directly "you are a derogatory term for a homosexual" bit.
#135
I think the feminized accent is pretty intentional.

My gay uncle and his civil partner both talk like normal men and have deep voices.

I have had three friends come out of the closet all over the age of 16 and they still talk like they did before, they don't sound girly.

You choose how you talk. I don't care if you want to try to sound like a girl all the time but it's pretty clearly a forced habit imo, my barber does the annoying gay voice and it's not a big deal but it doesn't sound legit.

Quote by Todd Hart
It's a social behaviour based on their contemporaries having adopted the camp style of holding oneself. It isn't forced per se, but it isn't their 'natural voice', much like the way you talk to a child isn't your natural voice.

I know some people with that kind of voice, and i don't really know how to explain it. However, i do know some gay people who have no affectation in their voice at all, and you would probably assume they were straight unless they told you otherwise.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

There was a kid in high school with me who had that accent, but he wasn't gay. I think some people truly do have it, but I'm willing to bet most gay people (out gay people) force it.

It probably has something to do with the fact that a lot of gay guys are just effeminate.

Very few of the gay dudes that I know actually talk and act "camp". They'd rather kinda keep it to themselves. In my opinion, it seems to be used by the more attention-seeking individuals.

Additionally, I know a couple of guys that are camper than a row of pink tents that are actually straight. I believe it's a conscious decision. One that can be funny as **** in some situations.

My math teacher this years has a gay accent and it's not forced at all. He giggles and it's still noticeable. It's pretty awesome.
#145
I know a straight guy who speaks fairly flamboyantly.
I actually don't know any gay guys personally.

Most gay guys I've met don't have the lisp. They sometimes have a more effeminate way of talking, but still in a male voice. It's hard to explain. I have this one mate who dresses in such a shocking gay way (it's kind of awesome) and yet has a fairly deep voice, and looks "dainty".

How is it not rooted in gayness? Even if it's not a genetically occurring trait, it still is part of gay culture.

It can feel forced at times, but I'm sure it's simply from hanging out with others that speak the same way.



Yeah, this. We call pick up accents, slang, and habits from the people we associate with. It's also possible that it's serves as some kind of identifier to other gay dudes, but I have no way of proving that either way.

The only thing I've found off-putting so far is your use of the word 'queers'. I don't even know why, it's just not a term we like to use in the UK.


I'm not sure if it's a particularly common term in America either. It seems to be common among radical and anarchist groups, and I've read articles attacking the use of the word on the basis of it's association with political radicalism, so my guess is usage of the word is at least in part a political thing.

It was common until like 10 years ago. Now I rarely hear it and I also kind of associate it to have a negative connotation.

Edit: I think "queer" was sort of like "faggot" in like the 60s or so. Then in the early 2000s, gay people started adopting the term in sort of a prideful sort of way (TV show titles like "Queer eye for the straight guy"). But now I rarely hear it. I hear "joto" more than I hear queer.

I know it's not the greatest source, but wikipedia dates the origins of 'queer theory' and the positive use of the term 'queer' back to 1990. This indicates to me that it was already being reappropriated by left wing groups several years before it moved into the mainstream, which also explains why I keep reading the word in current radical publications. Out of interest, I did a google search for the word 'queer' on the website of the International Socialist Journal, which is the quarterly journal of the group currently laying claim to being the largest Marxist outfit in Britain and found this article mentioning the existence of queer theory courses at universities in the UK as well as UK-based groups which use the label 'queer', which indicates strongly to me that the use of the term is a political/academic and not a geographic thing.

So, does that mean that in about 30-40 years, gay people will be calling themselves faggots like it aint a thing?

I do hope that it comes to this actually. People using the word to express humility rather than offense.

I wish so much that it didn't have such a negative connotation towards gays. It's such a satisfying word to call someone.
