    Was at a social gathering, and this very attractive man came in. He walked pass and said hello to me. Next thing u know, it seems everyone had nothing nice to say about this man. I know this happens in the straight community also. I use to chase women all the time. But it seems to more common in the gay community. The funny thing is, they never had a conversation with this indiviual nor they knew him personally. They talked bad about this man based on what they heard.

    This is not a problem that is exclusive to the gay community. People put other people down to make themselves feel better.

    Probably based on his confidence and looks...he's probably resented by some of those at the party with perceptions that are "less than" what they perceive him to have. Pretty sad.

    I'm so guilty of doing this.

    They make you feel insecure because they are so attractive and you feel threatened so you do everything in your power to destroy them/marginalize them icon_lol.gif

    It's a defence mechanism. A very unfortunate one.

    It's a defense mechanism. Instead of admiring the guys hotness and going to talk to him with the change you may get burned you make yourself feel better by switching it up and pretending your not into him. It goes all the way back to the kindergarden era when you pushed Johnny Hicks off the slide before you realized you liked him.

    the long answer might have to do with said's theory of repressed populations repressing others into to gain imaginary favor with the hegemony...

    the short answer is you think it makes you cool
