meninlove said lol, so is there an approved butch way to run?
One thing I've noticed about men in general
over the years. Gay men are more paranoid about appearing masculine or not and try harder to avoid looking like a girl. This obsession touches many aspects of life. Ironically, the harder they try to appear "butch" ( a ridiculous gay term) the more gay they appear.
I know we all love our testosterone so why not work with it rather than trying to control it. It's stupid to try to chanel it into some approved/accepted way of being a man. In general, straight men give each other a lot of slack and aren't quick to judge each other's masculinity. Wish I could say the same about gay men.
The most attractive guys, gay or straight, are always the ones who don't give a shit about what other men might think. They walk talk and move the way they want. They have sex with no regard to what others might think is a masculine or feminine role.
To these men, being sensitive, having a nurturing nature, laughing silly, jumping up and down etc. only add to a masculine assertive personality. When a man frees himself to experience life, he is comfortable with everyone around him doing the same.
Guys.....run the fuck the way you want to and get to that finish line being proud of who you are. Get real and be natural.Sorry for the rant
. I just came from a bbq and was wearing cutoff shorts and a wifebeater T. It was only the gay ones who HAD to say that I looked gay. Nevermind that the straight guys were dressed in the same way.
