    Interesting. Never heard that one before.

    So guys who like to take off their shirts and show off are gay? Or am I reading too much into it?

    I don't know if it is actually. Truth is I'm just wasted right now. At 6pm Sunday. In my own living room. Alone. What a fucking waste....icon_sad.gif But this thread prevails!

    I don't know. I think it's English in origin, along with Uphill Gardener.

    It is an English term, as far as I know. I remember my dad saying a lot when I was growing up. I think it suggests that you're a pervert because you like to see under mens' clothing, pushing the stereotype that gay people are perverted.

    such things have been around for a very long time. I get such a laugh out of so many of em. Butt Gees I myself don't think of em, or really hear them either.

    I do remember:
    Fug packers.
    Doughnut makers.
    Stamp lickrs.
    Marys.

    Gosh there's a load of em. But the joys of being at peace with my sexuality, is they don't hurt me.

    Gosh One stands under the banner of fag.

    "Giant Baby" is a slang term for a Teletubby... icon_biggrin.gif I think. Or it could mean George Bush. I'm not sure.

    I think it's the homo version of a skirt-lifter, being a ladies man.

    Funny. I saw a guy do that at the gym today. Based on that and his other mannerisms and gestures, I thought
    "Geee, he's cute, and really...............VAIN!"

    Gay didn't even occur to me. Not that he couldn't have been, but rather that I didn't care after the 'show'.

    I locked eyes with a good looking guy today at the gym as he was walking towards me. When he got 2 feet away he lifted his shirt to wipe off his face.


    Reading this, I think he's prob a little gay

    My Dad always told me that shirtlifters were slang for baked beans. They make you fart a lot, hence they lift your shirt. Makes sense to me. I was understandably surprised to hear it being referenced here as term for gay men.

    There are a lot of shirt lifters at my gym but I'm not convinced they are gay in the homosexual sense. If you are referring to gay as in they are tools then yeah that is most likely 100% true.

    I always have liked Fudge Packer sounds purposeful.

    Shirt lifter sounds like some ridiculous english clip thingy that connects the bottom of a shirt to some tit ring mounted spring apparatus.
