Are we identical?! The extent of which society influences us!

    I have lived in many countries. I have noticed that in each country (or region), the gay community takes a different uniform direction in values, lifestyle and behavior.

    In other words, gay people in each country have:
    - A similar thinking pattern (distinct from gay people from another country)
    - Similar facial features (to a certain extent, which might have been evolved similarly growing up because of social pressures)
    - Similar lifestyle and values

    I am not saying that each country's gay individuals are identical. Just similar in a way we would've never imagined, and heavily influenced by cultural norms.

    Do you know more about the subject? Could culture influence the traits of a homosexual person more than race and ethnicity?


    Examples: do Canadian homosexuals score a higher average in a given value than French homosexuals?
    Do gays in China have a homogenous mannerism? Would gays in the Middle East act more macho? Would gays in Argentina act more masculine?
    Would Dutch people score higher on coming out -by phone, letter, personally...- than other nationalities?

    I think the word gay is obsolete. If you leave it out, your question is answered.

    My question was about -the gay community- specifically.
    But -Lux- I know what you mean. I studied the effects of cultures on values and behaviors, and in that sense, yes the word 'gay' is obsolete because culture is the driving force around our behaviors.
