Men of great masculinity and charm in my experience. Tall (for the most part) well built, and in the top five nations for looks, no doubt; all with a sexy French inflection.
More to the point, there seems to be a tacit acceptance of gay life. Once you've married and produce a kid or two - lol - you can do more or less what you want with whosoever you want.
This is well-short of acceptance, of course, but it's probably what my own mother wanted :-)
An Arab friend of mine maintains that gay partnership is, in fact, the ideal relationship for mothers of gay men. There will always be war with their daughters-in-law because the mother makes it clear that the son will never love any woman as much as his mother. Well, if he has a husband the problem is solved!
