Can you tell if someone is gay by their CD collection?

    Me and a friend went over my stra8 friends apartment. Everything was cool. In personality the guy didn't send up rainbow flags or anything...but when browsing his CD collection, I bet at least 80 to 90% of it was made up of FEMALE singers. I didn't say anything, but it really made me think...

    Female singers or gay icons that happen to be female singers? There's big difference between Amy Grant and Lady Gaga.

    I don't actually think sexual orientation is determined by cd collections. My ex boyfriend listened solely to hard metal rock while I'm a Martina McBride fan.

    I think that just seems a little judge-y to assume that.

    I agree. If it's Britney Spears or Mariah, who are gay icons, you are finding in the majority rather than just any other female artist, I would be curious too...

    Well, those were the first two examples that popped in my head.

    Despite my earlier post, I would agree that saying a CD collection is a main indicator is a stretch. I'd consider it supplemental evidence, in addition so something like wardrobe and/or mannerisms.

    Mostly likely gay. But there are gay guys who despise pop music in general so you never know.

    The only "CDs" I own are DVDs. And every DVD is gay fetish.
    I have no CD collection. icon_biggrin.gif

    Depends what iTunes has decided to put on my phone during my last sync. It could be show tunes, 90s alt rock, Jerry Jeff Walker & Robert Earl Keen, some pop diva, or singer-songwriter stuff. The occasional hip hop and reggae finds it's way in there too.

    Only if they have the soundtrack to the original Journey to the Center of the Earth, with James Mason, Arlene Dahl and Pat Boone, complete with the crooner's songs.

    Then you know they are gay.

    Unless, of course, he also has a collection of Morten Lauridsen's choral works. Then, naturally, you know he is not gay.

    Unless it is a Tuesday. Tuesday's are bad, and generally mean gayness.

    UM- I'm sure this is just a "joke" thread- but I actually don't listen/like any of those artists. icon_redface.gif

    I'm a bad gay.

    The owner of my gym listens to them though and he's a heterosexual.

    Then it must have been a Wednesday. If he had listened to them on Tuesday, then he and anyone in the front office would be gay, of course.

    Oh wait. Was it Barbra Streisand? In that case, even on Wednesday, he'd be gay, but not the others in the office.

    One must get used to the signs and portents. Read the tea leaves so you know the rules of gayness.

    Clearly, this OP made us all think, as it did him.

    Hold on there...not so fast.
    He can keep his gay card, but must give up something else that means just as much to him. I suggest making him leave his clothes on the table instead. icon_twisted.gif

    I listen to everything from Skinny Puppy to Peggy Lee, so I don't think you can tell a person's orientation by his or her CD collection.

    Besides that, who has CDs anymore anyway? All my music has been digital for a decade now.

    BELLO:

    I would not assume that you were gay based upon your music, but I might ask you to let me rip a couple cd's...

    I am sorry.

    If there is "Better Midler" in the collection....the person is gay...or not out yet.
