    everyone knows one or two stereotypes of the "typical" gay man. now, you and I know there is NO typical gay man, and the stereotypes are generally given to us and forced down our throat by Hollywood and television, so i'm interested to know how you DO NOT fit the stereotypes.



    I'll kick off: I have never heard a Lady Gaga song, can't stand pop music and don't do recreational drugs.

    I've never had a "fag hag," unless hanging out with a lesbian couple counts.
    I only talk with a lisp when mimicking the stereotype for fun.
    I fart, burp, and wipe my nose on my sleeve.
    I've driven 23 stick shifts out of the 26 vehicles that I've owned.
    I grew up hunting, fishing, 4-wheeling, mudding, swimming in ponds, cattle farming, and catching turtles and snakes as pets.
    I have driven tractors, bulldozers, forklifts, dump trucks, log trucks, and earth movers.
    I have physically kicked ass, and had my ass kicked...and walked away each time with only bruises.
    I almost got into a bar fight a few nights ago (by a couple homophobes), but the guys backed down when they saw I wasn't backing down.
    One of them almost cried by the time I was done verbally ripping them a new asshole.
    I love pastel colors, including pinks and yellows.
    Yes, the above is non-stereotype, because I'm "man enough" to admit enjoying those colors without giving a fuck what others think about it.
    I drink Jack Daniels from the bottle.

    I don't have a "fag hag," (unless hanging out with a lesbian couple counts)..I just have female friends.

    I only talk with a lisp when mimicking the stereotype for fun.

    I fart, burp and blow my nose in public, but not in restaurants.

    I've driven 20 stick shifts out of the 22 vehicles that I've owned.

    I grew up hunting, fishing, 4-wheeling, mudding, swimming in ponds, milked cows, raised chickens (nasty birds!) I had a squirrel, a skunk and a raccoon as pets, as well as dogs and cats. ALL OUTDOORS!

    I have driven tractors, backhoes, bulldozers, forklifts, dump trucks and oil rigs/drill rigs.

    I have physically kicked ass, and had my ass kicked...and sometimes walked away with a new friend.

    I had no idea what 'focaccia' was until I saw it mentioned on here.

    I cannot name any clothing designer that's 'all the rage' now and only can name the ones that have been in the news in the past (Gucci can put 3 stripes on a dog turd and it will sell!)

    I couldn't care less what other gays think of me, my car, my clothing, my lifestyle or whether I am 'out' or not, or show my face online; or what they think of my friends.
    There is a reason they are not part of my circle of friends!

    I don't call guys "girl" or refer to them as "she" or "her."
    I detest gay bars, gay beaches, and circuit parties, and I don't believe in gay immersion.
    I don't end my declaratory statements with a question mark.
    I don't spend 2 hours primping and pumping up before leaving my house.
    I don't use poppers during sex.
    I am not a flight attendant.

    Syntactically declarative sentences uttered as statements. comments, conclusions, or assertions are generally associated with a final fall in intonation. E.g., "I am attracted to gay boys that are beautiful externally and internally." That's a simple declarative statement that should be uttered with a falling intonation. In some gay communities, that simple declarative statement would have a rising intonation as though someone were asking a question as opposed to offering a statement (e.g., "I am attracted to gay boys that are beautiful externally and internally?"), which generally telegraphs intellectual uncertainty and lack of verbal commitment.

    Varsity (HS) and college athlete.
    Never wore glitter, make up, or anything like that.
    Snakes are awesome.
    I drink bourbon from the bottle.
    I put ketchup on everything I eat, and often by accident, my pants - and it doesn't bother me.
    I like Taco Bell.
    Manual transmission driver.
    Not fashionable at all.
    Do not like lady gaga or Britney Spears music.
    Well educated - never worked at Hollister or in any retail position (that seems to be one of the only true stereotypes I have defied - valuing education and not spending my 20s working in the mall)
    Smokes cigars - the Cuban kind. Wait, that still sounds mega gay, strike that.

    I don't lie about my age.
    I'm not youth-obsessed.
    I don't go around calling guys "giiirl" or "bitch."
    I find the shaved/waxed chest look pathetic.

    personally, I don't like lady gaga, rec drugs will eventually kill you, and after watching a special on the logo cable channel, called adonis factor....I didn't realize there was so much competition and even catagorizing in the gay community....the theme I've always heard in connection with the gay community was celebrate diversity....on the program they showed men obsessed with their muscle-building, using steriods, kicking out those thinner guys, even bullying them around....

    that's not celebrating diversity.

    As far as that theme goes, I've been watching the man of the day votes, who gets in, and how the system seems to work...if you don't "lift weights" and show your developed muscles (both rear and fro) you have a very slim chance of getting man of the day.....the kind of men I've seen on here, are so diverse, kind, funny, intelligent, etc. but don't life weights..I throw my vote in for them...

    it would be a pleasant surprise to see your face on the front, however, that's not why I'm on here....i would never make it anyway..

    lets celebrate true diversity....?

    thanks
