    Wear rings? And not just one or two, but quite a few.

    Although, some do wear just one or two. I just don't get it. It does nothing for me and for some reason it creeps me out. Not wedding bands but rings on the thumb, pinky, pointer finger etc.

    Is this a fashion statement trying to pick up or a personal preference as I usually only see homosexual men doing it... (AND PURITY VOWERS!)

    They're actually cockrings, but they were too large for their cocks so they put them on their fingers.

    Maybe so people can identify them as gay, i.e. not having to come out every single time to strangers?

    I'll wear a single ring for dress-up occasions, but never for daily activities. The ring I most use is rather nice, but passé nowadays with rainbow stones. But it still succeeds in signaling others that I'm gay. Well, most others.

    During our honeymoon my late partner wanted us to wear our matching rainbow wedding rings all the time. As we were checking into a hotel one evening the clerk noticed his ring.

    "What a lovely birthstone ring! And your children were all born in different months!" she gushed. "Or do you have more than 6 children?"

    "Um, no," my partner answered in confusion (he had zero children). In the meantime I had fled into an alcove like a coward, leaving him stuck at the desk all alone, to laugh myself silly. I don't know how he kept a straight face, if you'll forgive the expression.

    I finally pulled myself together and returned, when the clerk saw my own ring. "Oh, my, and you have 6 children, too!"

    I bolted for the entrance door to get our luggage from the car, choking back my laughter. We laughed hysterically for 5 minutes non-stop when we got into our room. Which incidentally was handicapped with only 1 queen bed to sleep 2 grown men with different last names, which hadn't phased the clerk a bit.

    In fact, her first comment to my partner when she located our reservation in his name was: "Yes, here it is. You're the non-smoking handicapped queen." That was the first time I had to flee the check-in desk that evening to compose myself.

    What you don't know is that they're actually channelling Elizabeth Taylor.

    When I was 17, I was invited to dinner with a very wealthy man (heir to the John Deere Co., John Deering McCormick) and I thought it would be tasteful and classy to wear seven of my best rings.
    To this day, I remember what he said that evening. "My dear, you have lovely jewelry...but one doesn't wear it all at one time".
    To this day, I never leave the house with more than one on each hand.

    I used to wear rings, but not anymore. I had to wear bling during a phase.. :S. Now I only wear a watch and a BuddhaToBuddha bracelet.
    All the rings I had are now too big. Leaning out also reduces finger thickness.. lol. I just keep them now in a box on my desk.

    I have noticed it a lot too. Not to be too classist on this - but it is usually the lower income, less educated "retail gays" that go for that look. I don't really recall ever seeing an accountant, professor, or surgeon blinged out.

    I don't even wear my class ring let alone a wristwatch if I remember to have my iPhone on me. I am really not a jewelry/accessory person. I don't get why others want to be responsible for wearing so many extra items (likely expensive ones) beyond pants, shirt, and shoes.

    No rings for me. I just find them annoying to my skin and they don't function well under the nitrile gloves I wear at work.
    ...Now rings on other appendages... that's a different story icon_twisted.gif

    In your profile, you have at least 3 pictures of you wearing retarded looking headbands.

    It had to be pointed out.

    According to the last memo I got with the current Gay Agenda, the multiple rings decision was ratified in an attempt mostly to irritate and mystify YOU specifically.

    My understanding is that Phase Two will involve forcing YOU personally to wear multiple rings simultaneously in an effort to really cram the Agenda down your throat.

    The Governing Board and Accessories Sub-Committee will be THRILLED to know that the plan is working.

    I wear my class ring & that's it. I'll wear a promise ring if a guy were to ever give me one & I'd like a James Avery Cross thumb ring.
