    There's an article on ChristWire.org entitled "Is my Husband gay?" that is currently bouncing around the social networks. It's a 15-point article disclosing extremely stereotypical behaviors of men that are meant to help woman identify their husband as "struggling with homosexuality." For example . .

    http://christwire.org/2010/08/is-my-husband-gay/5) Gym membership but no interest in sports
    Gay men use the gym as a place to socialize and to have secret liaisons in the bathrooms. They like to work out their bodies without the competition of sports play. Afterward, they use the showers and steam rooms to engage in sexual activity beyond the prying eyes of women. If your man returns from the gym too exhausted to talk or have sex, that is a worrisome sign.


    While the author naturally cites no sources for some of the basic statistics he makes (such as 2-4 million Christian couples "struggle" with homosexuality), he backs up this point in particular with a Realjock article in one of his many responses to the comments: Sex at the Gym: Harmless Fun or Just Plain Wrong?.

    What do you all think of this?

    Haha, that was a funny read- I thought it was satire at first, but nope it's a genuine article. Typical fundamentalist mentally.

    Umm, let's see do I socialize at the gym, sometimes. Have I hooked up in the showers, nope that's just gross!

    Thanks for sharing

    Obviously not. The whole article was pretty comical to me until I saw Realjock being cited, and effectively proving a point that the author was making--as contrived and stereotypical as that point was. What I'm interested in is hearing from other members how they feel about the fact that Realjock articles might be used to support the closed-minded arguments these people make.

    Depends on whether or not the author has an active RJ account ;)

    Ugh, yeah. Agreed. The fundamentalist issue is the biggest reason why I could never personally vote for Mike Huckabee. I do lean Republican, but it would take a lot of deep thought before I could bring myself to ever pencil him in on my ballot.

    That, and the fact that he compared homosexuality to beastiality and pedophilia. Oh, and the fact that he says even knowing what he knows now, he still would have released (multiple) cop killer Maurice Clemmons when he was governor of Arkansas. Up in my area, that is a super sensitive issue. Sorry to get the thread off track, but I just had to get a Huckabee rant in.

    This site has to be satire. Right? I mean no one could even write an article that could be so unintentionally hilarious right?

    NO ONE IS THAT STUPID

    Yeah, I sure hope so but unfortunately I doubt it. I was browsing the book section at Goodwill awhile back, and stumbled across this book:

    I think gym sex is much more fun when the hottie is tied up spread-eagle to the smith machine.
    Sauna sex is too fucking vanilla.

    viveutvivas saidHe has a home gym. Membership is free AFAICR. icon_razz.gif
    But I haven't decided yet whether or not to get a smith machine.
    I never use the one at the "real" gym anyway, but it sure would make a fun sex toy. icon_wink.gif

    This topic demonstrates what we once said about topics on this site being publicly accessible and easily use-able. The topic that time was promoting sex with legal minors.

    Natural men have a certain amount of grit about them. They sweat and they smell. Homosexuals often abhor this sort of thing and will also be incredibly particular about the cleanliness of the home. In other words, unless your husband is a pig, and expects you to pick up after him like a good wifey, he's gay. Nice option.

    Travels frequently to big cities or Asia. What, no mention of Europe or Amsterdam. How did SF get left out? A lot of business executives are gonna be pegged gay on this one.

    A man who is secretly engaged in homosexual activity with others may exhibit feminine qualities when they get together in a group. In a sense, he has “let his hair down” and this will be seen in excessive back talk and speaking with one’s hands. Ladies, don't marry an Italian! All of them are apparently gay.

    Does it seem like he’s purposely standing right in the middle of a crowd to show off his chest and arm muscles, peppering people with questions about how strong he looks? He may be craving physical affirmation from other men and desperately looking for hints of shared desires in those around him. Or he may be having fantasies about being a TV wrestler. Because you know how gay those macho wrestlers are.

    has anybody read any of the testimonies though? I mean, i couldn't imagine being 40+ years old and having the person i love leave me for the opposite gender. Think of that. what would you do if you're husband you've been with for 25 years or whatever decides he's straight? how would you take that? can you be mad at him? I honestly think most women deny that their husbands are gay for the sake of their pride but still.

    and the gym is a major hook up place. I understand where the article is coming from. has anybody read any of the other articles that are on there? The related articles are where most of the information comes from that this article uses. I feel sorry for the women that lose their husbands because they decide after getting married that they're gay. and honestly, if i was one of those women i would probably blame gays and hate them as well.

    Finally, a litmus test for gay vs. straight... and I am apparently straight...
