I've lived in England for almost a year and I'm starting to wonder if there's an unwritten rule somewhere that makes people who wear shorts gay. I've had some classmates comment on my shorts, saying stuff like "Hey, you know how I know you're gay? You wear shorts" and "Eww! Shorts?!?" I could understand that statement if I was wearing tight short shorts, but my favorite (on a side note, they also comment on my spelling) shorts to wear are these (and they're practically the only ones I wear in public):

So, are shorts that uncommon in England or are these people just annoying me for no reason?

I don't know about the sexual connotations... all I know about this subject is:

Shorts suck.

shorts are shorts, if it's hot, there's no excuse.
i don't wear them, but i guess there's a limit to whether they could look ridiculous lol.
#8
they are just annoying to you for no reason, its those stupid little english pr*cks that like to make fun of pple, makes them seem more powerful, and UK UGers dont get me wrong, i'm half English but I did realise that some stupid kids in england tend to be c*nts (not all but many ofem are forexample bullies), btw, TS where are you from? coz that might me the reason, not ur shorts but the fact that your from another country, correct me if im wrong


oh and EDIT: shorts are the very best invention since food, bikinis and sex!!!!!!!!!!!!

it obviously depends on the shorts... I only use gay-looking ones not to harm ppl cause my manhood would most likely kill on sight.

they're probably just taking the p*ss because you're reasonably new and different to them,
and the fact they're basket ball shorts and basket ball isn;t as popular here as it is in the U.S

so yer they're just shallow and immature, but the shorts are a bit different to what's normal in England lol

Depends what kind of shorts you wear. Like when it's hot outside or for casual occasions I wear black shorts with my black slip ons and a t shirt. I would never wear shorts that are too short though. Just knee length is good.

1. I'm not gay
2. I'm originally from Estonia (Eastern Europe) but I've lived around Americans all my life, so I speak, write, and use slang exactly like an average American. (I've been mistaken for an American by Americans, so, yes, I do sound American)
3. DunnySun, no.
4. I generally wear shorts that go just past the knee and are pretty wide
5. They also don't like my taste in music...

Whenever I'm leafletting in Camden and I offer a leaflet to someone in shorts... They always reply in a german accent with their boyfriend hanging off their arm... so yeah, not only are shorts for queers, but they're for german queers too.

just dont wear long socks.
and make sure the shorts dont go any higher than the knee.

short shorts, high socks and sandals = gay.

long shorts, trainer socks and trainers = okay.


but, if you dont want to be discrimainated, go with the flow, do what everyone else does, and always, always conform.
#27
or socks with sandles if you wear shorts

It's sad how true that is. Just try to be as average as possible clothes wise at least...

WELL if they're tight

and really short

and have a bright colorful pattern,

then that's pretty flaming.

I think the thing that counts the most is the length.

If you're a guy, you shouldn't really shouldn't wear shorts that are much shorter than knee length.

Usually you won't get harassed if they're like, bermuda shorts.

i think the kids are just picking on your coz your foreign, not coz of your shorts..........sorry dude :/
