I've been noticing it more and more, so I thought I'd ask the Pit's opinion on it.

Why is it normal when girls go "She looks good!" or "She's pretty!" but guys get called gay as soon as they even imply that they can judge whether another guy is good looking or not?

There's a difference between acknowledging that another person is good looking and being attracted to them.

It may be in violation of Man-law, I'd have to double-check.

I compare myself to other men all the time. It's a social thing, not that most people here would understand

Ah yes, you have a condition that many guys live with and are affected by everyday. It's called a penis.

I think it's dumb that we can't do it, but that doesn't change the fact that I'm unsure when a guy is good looking.

Because the people you hang out with are not sexually secure...me and my friends will openly admit when someone is attractive.


Exactly. Simply as humans we recognize when someone has attractive traits.

I usually tell whether another guy is attractive or not by asking one simple question:

"If I looked like him, would I kill myself?"

I never go and say "Jesus, that is/you are a sexy male, we must bone," to a man, unless it's Sean Connery, Fabio, Jack Black, Chuck Norris, Burt Reynolds, or the other standards of man-love.

I would comment on if someone looks well put together. I wouldn't say attractive, but perhaps good looking, at least.


But you have to be a damn fine piece of work.

i dont think it matters if your attracted to them or not if someone asks me what i think about a dude ill say if there good looking or not it dosent make me gay.

oh and to anyone who has a problem with gays and says its just not natural, then why does it occur in nature there is a gay population in every species that breeds.

Because we're intolerant bastards, some of us insecure about our sexuality. So implying that we can see how a male is attractive, could imply that we are sexually attracted to him.
Since most of us are intolerant bastards, it'd be bad to say such a thing.

I usually say it out loud. Unlike some people, I know secure with my sexuality and saying a guy is attractive won't suddenly make me gay.

Same here.

I think Marc Bolan of T.Rex is very attractive. If I were gay, I would want him.

#24
People are way too insecure, I've even known some people (boy/girl, girl/girl, boy/boy) kissing eachother just messing around (not making out, just kissing... as a kind of joke thing) as some people being really grossed out.. it doesn't mean anything, they don't get any "germs" or "cooties" from it, it's completely harmless but some people think that is completely wrong or if they're the same gender that makes them either gay or bi.

I really don't care if people think of me as a gay guy, I know i'm straight, any girl i am interested in or have spoken to more than a couple times know that I am straight, if people want to think differently, great.

You know what... I can always tell when a guy is an attractive guy or not... but I don't say it out loud. Because people yelling "gAy!" and **** like that gets really annoying because basically every guy at my school is insecure and stuff... so I keep it to myself. Or tell girls.

Why would it not be fine to be attracted to them? Hmmm?!

When I was a freshman, a friend of mine and I were having a serious chat, and suddenly he says "Why don't you get a girlfriend? You're attractive".

.....awkward silence and nervous chatter followed.

Hahaha! That's awesome.

I say things like that, it has different weird undertones though. They know I am gay, which makes it weird, but I acknowledge that they are straight so that kind of cancels it out. But they still get weirded out?

Like: "Oh yeah, you're good looking, you could get a girlfriend if you wanted...

...Or a boyfriend."

What am I doing wrong?

I can imagine being a little weirded out. I even get creeped out when I find out that girls are crushing on me.

I was more creeped out my by friend saying that because I'm highly unattractive, and
he's loudly homophobic, which leads me to wonder if he's got weird ass secrets or something

I feel secure about my sexuality. I know I don't have physical attraction for other men. I often say to my friends/people on TV that they look good, and I'm not ashamed of it.
