Are gay men hyper-competitive?

    There often seems to be an "one-upmanship" in the forums. I first noticed it when posting concerning Glock pistols.

    It later dawned on me that the basis for strong response to that post was nothing other than competition, even though a real world stage for that competition had not been defined. Had I placed a title to the post as something like "World's Best Gun," then I can see some of the response where soemone suddenly stated, "it's a piece of crap."

    I see this in the political posts also. We have two "choirs" on RealJock. Neither seem to propose anything that is constructively worthwhile other than their own mantra. In fact, when someone suggested moving that consersation over to a site of "like minds" so that constructive action could be taken, a real explosion occured.

    So is this simple competition, even though poorly guided?

    As opposed to other men?

    Most people are competitive by nature.
    Some people are weird and don't participate in the competition of life. icon_wink.gif

    Yeah, most people just in general are competitive. I'm not, at all. I don't really care about winning because I know it means more to other people. As long as I don't come in last in something then I'm totally satisfied. I like being in the middle of the pack.
