    Thought Question for people who like to reply to GAYT (Guy Above You Threads) :

    I see a lot of response to people's posts to these GAYTs along the lines of:

    ... sorry, too old

    ... pass

    ... nope, too chubby

    ... not my type

    ...WTF dude! you got a third eye in yourhead...! No wayyyy! I'd not touch you with a barge pole...!!


    and so forth... stuff that I'm sure is walloping somebody's self esteem somewhere icon_biggrin.gif



    What do you think?

    Do you go by "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything..." and wait for a better looking guy to post?

    ...or hit do you them with the hard, honest truth "I don't like-ah ya face..." (or whatever other attribute you gleaned from a 20 second scan of the "guy above you" profile that turned you off) ?

    I generally wait, myself. icon_neutral.gif

    I'm not offended by e-ego's.

    When it comes right down to it, if that person doesn't or wouldn't like you, they're not worth your time anyways.

    So you're the one to blame for unleashing all the pent-up narcissism, meanness, and drivel of these stupid theads? Beware the inevitable karmic payback.

    In fairness though, those threads a ridiculous, I've never seen them on any other forum.

    But what is the point in having them if you can't answer honestly, although 99% of the responses are so obviously two faced, (which I suppose represents the gay community anyway!)

    I wonder how many people have messaged the guy below you (who gave you a nice comment) only to get no response!

    Well put.

    And yes, I'd fuck, throw you against the wall do dirty things, not change you profile pic, approach you in a bar, but really the best thing about you is your kindness that beams through all your pics.

    I think it's a gimmick to get people to look at their profiles when they say negative things that seem way over the top and also their negativity is sorta supportive (positive outlook...I'm stretching) because I admit that when I see someone say something negative about another I get a little curious and check out that person's profile to see why. That's just my opinion of the situation.

    Other then that who cares? They said what they said because it's what they felt or they were trying to be funny. Whatever the case that doesn't mean it's true. It just means that some people can't give simple answers to simple questions.

    What's the big deal anyway, if everybody would only say nice things these threads wouldn't be half as fun.

    And why would I give a shit if some random dude says I'm ugly? Grow some thicker skin.

    I think that when other gay guys take swipes at their gay brothers, it is an attempt to take back power that a bully or parent stole from them during their (most likely turbulent) upbringing. But this activity honestly is low-level entertainment and makes the purveyors of it seem really effete. It is so easy to say nasty things about someone else, especially if they are not in the same room to punch you in your sissy face. I'd rather be noble and manly and focus on TEAMWORK to build people up in a supportive way instead of tearing someone down based on sexual attraction or lack thereof.

    Tazo, I disagree. I think paying someone a compliment is a lot of fun...you hottie. (See what I mean?)

    So it's retroactive bullying that you never got to do in school? Nah dude, I think that's overthinking it a little. Agreed that saying nice things is just... nicer, though.

    That would be another thread though. And these threads also exist, like "guess what sport the guy above you would be good at" for example.

    Or maybe you should start a "compliment the guy above you" thread.

    Oh and thanks icon_razz.gif

    It absolutely is retroactive bullying we never got to do in high school, and the anger surrounding it comes out in destructive ways if we don't examine our thoughts, and think like men instead of boys. Why else would the stereotype of gay-guys-tearing-each-other-down-based-on-externals even exist if this activity wasn't so prevalent in our culture?

    Complimenting the guy above you threads. I think that's a great idea. icon_wink.gif

    Well man, maybe you're not thinking enough about the impact your words have on the universe and everyone who lives there, or you haven't worked through your personal crap yet, but I wish you luck in any case! It might be a different philosophy on life that we each have, so it isn't worth arguing too much about it. icon_biggrin.gif Carry on.
