    No, I'm not trolling.

    I understand that this is a "gay fitness, health, and life" forum, so therefore a ton of guys who love to be ripped will join. But there are other sides to fitness, and you don't have to be ripped in order to be fit. (Even as a man)

    I guess I'm here asking this question because I've only been on this forum for a week or two, and I've noticed that a lot of guys really dislike feminine gay guys. Personally, I would consider myself 50% feminine and 50% masculine, but I've got to say I've felt pressure at times on here to act more masculine than I really am.

    Don't we gays deal with enough societal pressures from everyone else? Do we really need to persecute EACH OTHER for not adhering to societal norms?

    I mean, I like cutting hair, fashion, and lady gaga. But I also like football, cars, and heavy metal. Why is that a bad thing? Even if I was a big fat flamer who walked around belting out show tunes all day long, why would that even matter?

    Shouldn't we all just be allowed to be who we are?

    To chad2468emr:

    I can't comment on what you say specifically about the real jock forums as I am new. But I think that is good advice for the gay community as a whole. Gays get enough nonacceptance from the heterosexual community, within our own community (if you can speak of gay in terms of being a community) we should accept one another for who they are whether they seem to subscribe more to the feminine or masculine social constructs. You raise a good point

    We seem superior because we have a lower voice.

    I didn't say you seemed superior, just that some of you acted it.

    Oh, sorry, I didn't mean "seemed superior", but whether "are superior". icon_razz.gif

    You are allowed to be who you are, but not everyone is going to like you. That can be said of anything, though. It's not just a matter of being masculine or feminine.

    To think that we're all going to be supportive of each other because of our shared sexuality is a fairytale. Not gonna happen.

    Haha is that why you don't have a picture uploaded DesireIron?

    I'm not asking about beauty/attractiveness/hotness/whatever at all. I'm asking why some people in the gay community tend to be accepting towards feminine gay guys. There are even feminine gay guys who hate on masculine guys. Its all so stupid and a waste of energy.

    If someone's going to dislike me, then they can dislike me for something actually about ME. Its ridiculous for people to dislike someone else because of their masculinity or femininity. If you follow that logic, than its totally just for straight people to dislike gay people because they just don't like their orientation.

    I know as a human being I'm always going to run into people that won't like me, and if every one did like me I would honestly feel like I was doing something wrong. Its just that I wanted some insight behind this "masc iz bettur than femme" mentality.

    I call bullshit. You're telling me that you've NEVER acted in a way than you otherwise would to gain acceptance? Congratulations, you are the purest of them all. You've beaten human nature, and the need for acceptance.

    I've read literally hundreds of these masc v. fem threads and the bottom line is that people have their preferences and no amount of persuading can get them to think otherwise.

    As for my attitude towards fems, I don't think it gets any butcher than being yourself despite great personal risk.

    Why's that? There are masculine homosexuals, and fem heterosexual males.

    Because its not okay to just dislike someone because of who they are without them actually having done anything wrong. If you don't CARE for a person's personality or find them attractive then its whatever, but to openly hate on them is stupid. Its no better than being homophobic.

    The majority of human beings are stupid and lazy. This explains most of what doesn't seem to make sense on planet Earth.
