Before I ask this, I want everyone to know that 1. I think gay people are cool and 2. I know Im stereotyping but I base this question off of my own observations.

Why is it that most gay people have a really good sense of style? Seriously, I wish I had the fashion sense that they have. Is there an actual reason, or am I just being a stereotyping prick?

Damn my stereotypes. Oh well, where I come from, gays are the best dressed people around. And thats not to say that everyone where I live is badly dressed, I live in the preppy part of San Diego, but gays usually take the fashion cake.

Must just be a local thing.

No, Im straight. And if I were gay, I wouldnt want to hide it, because then I could be well dressed, and who wouldnt want that?

did you ever think the reason they dress like that is to attract other gay people. why would you want look like them or even admire the way they look if you arnt gay.

So Im gay because I admit that many gay people I know are very well-dressed?

And are you straight? If so, have you EVER so much as looked at another guy?

If so then, by your logic, you are gay. And so is practically every other man in the world.

I don't know many gay guys/girls, but I do know that being gay is only a sexual preference. They may adopt the style of scene/goth/metal/skater. There's also the fact that many hang out with girls a lot. Get what I'm saying?

Basically, if you want to be able to dress well, hang out with chicks.

Well girls usually care a lot more about fashion than guys, so maybe gay guys are trying to emulate that?
#19
I've been friends with a few gay guys(don't get any crazy ideas; I'm straight); some dressed really nice but some also wear stuff that would make Stevie Wonder cringe(on a sidenote; I'm not a fashion guru).

Not trying to sound like a prick; but I think you might just be stereotyping; at least a little bit.

I was wondering why do so many gays have the gay lisp. i know that many dont but a large amount do.

Is it genetic or is it a choice?


I'm curious as to that too..

Well, I dont have a lisp, hell, I can barely say the word lisp for some reason, but anyways. For the most part, I think alot of gay guys have a lisp because they "want" to have one, as in, they want to fit a horrible stereotype that makes me wanna kick them in the teeth for being stereotypical like that and, giving average people who just happen to be gay, a bad name. . . . . *ahem*

I can understand if a person is just how they are, but you can usually tell when a guy is just trying to fit a stereotype insted of being themselves. Most gays aren't like you see on TV, but unfortunatley a decent amount want to emulate that stereotypical-ness and gives a bad name, just like blacks and all the gangsta rappers on TV, gives blacks a bad name, when really, most of them are really good people (as TV has done this to many types of people and races). So thats my 2 gay cents/rant added to this discussion.

Thing is, it's much easier to be a stereotype, so people sometimes fall into the trap. Which is a shame

i found it hard to read your post with that Red, Giant distracting CAKE!

as for the topic, unfortunatly i know quite a few gays aswell, and yes, a large majority dress damn nice! they helped make me a partial chick magnet! (lol) But there are a couple that are just creepy aswell, they dress all goth and wear heels and shat(together at the same time!!!!).

But they are all great people and funny. i just hate when they try and make a pass at you, or when they tell you,you are hot. i dont know how to reply.. lol

I'll let you in on a secret:

10 percent of every person is gay. Even you.

And on topic, just talk to girls and ask them (not random ones, your friends) about fashion if you want to dress with style. Be prepared to come off as gay, but this way you don't have to be gay and can still dress with style. Yay!

I honestly don't know why I as a straight man have no sense of style, and I imagine it would be very much the same if I were gay. I don't think that your sexual orientation has as much to do with it as you think.

Seriously guys, lets seperate "GENDER" (the socially constructed, generic set of ideals of what constitutes man and woman), "SEX" (the biological difference between the species; male and female) and SEXUALITY (the sexual preference of a male and female.)

The way people dress and their sexuality has very little to do with one another. There are stereotypes that people may want to conform to, but you cannot generalise these stereotypes to everyone. As someone did argue in this thread, a gay person can have a horrendous fashion sense. Of course, the very nature of what looks good is so objective that the very point of asking "y gai ppl dress gd" is pointless.

Agreed, but I believe the word you are looking for is subjective. Objective is pretty much an antonym of subjective.

Would you care to actually explain your stupidity?

I was merely asking an educated question based on something I, along with many people, have seen in their daily lives. Seeing that this thread would draw people of the gay persuasion, i thought it would be a logical question to ask to clear up my misunderstanding.

You just randomly insert a tired internet meme after bolding random words and accuse me of failing?

Some just know fashion some just dont, it's related to sexuality, check out metrosexuals for example.
