    I tried to search the forum see if i could find anthing, but nothing came up really. So i thought i would ask it straight up.

    Im a huge hip hop fan and always been, its the only music i listen to (coming from France Quebec or USA). And i feel like most of the gay guys would hate that music, and i can understand to a certain extent. They do say stupid homophobics things sometimes, but i dont mind at all.

    I wanna know how you guys feel when u see someone walking down the street in hiphop clothing if i can say (baggy pants long shirt). When you look at them do you think automaticly that they are not gay just becoz of the way they look (even tho gay rappers exist)? Is it a turn off to most off you guys, or its the opposite? And generally, in the gay community, is it a rare case a guy who lives hip hop?

    I groove to hip hop all the time.

    What do I think of guys that dress in a "hip hop" manner? I think they are expressing their interests through their attire just like so many other people do. And, unlike many people, I do not automatically become cautious or make uneducated assumptions about that individual.

    Ok so I feel the need to educate you (and some others) on hip-hop and my perspective. I'm not here to attack just forming an opinion... so there are 2 different perspectives on hip hop. The one where you just described where it's mostly influenced by the rappers and media. The other perspective is what I have live by and am apart of. Hip-hop isn't just about the rappers there is a whole community dedicated to it. The baggy clothes and "thuggish" looks you describe isn't real hip-hop. To be honest not one single person involved in the hip-hop community, fits what you've described (that I've met). Also, there are soo many elements to hip-hop to where you can't sect into just rappers and hood-rats. and mostly what you hear on the radios isn't really hip-hop (pop-hop is what I call it). Find some underground artists and you will see a whole different side to the culture.

    I know that this is all besides the OP's point. so to answer the question, I react the same with any of them. I welcome them with open arms and try and gain a new friend in the hip-hop scene. You can never have too many friends. As far them being gay or straight, i put that in the back of my mind. i rather hold close ties with these people as friends then make it messy by asking if they would want to date.

    Enjoying hip-hop music is one thing..

    Dressing like a fucktard is another.

    Dressing like a douche will result in getting treated like a douche. Is this such a hard concept to understand?

    Very true up there, and i totally agree that the bullshit that's on the radio is far from what i know as hip hop (personally i call it hip pop icon_razz.gif hehe)

    I grew up with only hip hop and reggae/dancehall and that's still most of what i listen to. Will always do that i think, i love the music and the vybe..
    I do dress a little like that tho, big shorts/jeans but not those huge basketball shirts, new era caps or that crap. geez some of em really look like dresses damnit hehe..
    but it can vary, i just dress in whatever feels comfy, dont care too much about it.

    But here in Sweden those type of huge clothes are not very common to see arond town (anymore). And if i would see someone dressing like that, i pretty much would assume him straight yeah. Then again i of course know that some of em are closet cases to some degree (just as i was up until recently) so i dont give it too much thought really..

    It is unattractive to me to overdo anything, be it huge baseball shirts, or tighty jeans, pink dress shirt and backslick. same thing, it signals to me that you are trying to be something you're not...

    I find hip hop very annoying and I generally try to avoid anyone who listens to it.

    hip-pop is probably a lot better and easier for others to catch on to. I like it.

    I agree with all of what you're saying. Lil Wayne wears skinny jeans so the everyone else has to. Kanye West drinks Rose so everyone else has to. Rick Ross' giant ass wears a t-shirt that fits him and everyone has to go out and buy his size. it's Crazy haha

    idk how it is in Sweden, I've heard various things about the different hip-hop scene's over seas. i'm more into the dancing side of hip-hop and i have been gathering stories from some of the founders and the people they trained and helped grow within the scene. the way its portrayed now is kinda how it's always been portrayed, but it takes 1 time for a person to peek in and see it's nothing like the media portrays it.

    Hip Hop is a rapidly evolving genre. Since i'm a 90's baby this is what first comes to mind when I think of hip hop. Listen to the story being toldicon_biggrin.gif

    You'd be surprised to see how many guys here are into hip hop. I expected little response to my heavy metal thread, but the contrary was true. As for clothing; who cares. I often wear my patched leather jacket or bandshirts as well, although mostly just for gigs/festivals. For me it's a way of supporting the bands. Having said that, 90% of the posters here still have a major boner for Britney Spears or Madonna, so don't expect too much icon_lol.gif (and no, there's nothing wrong with that. Each to their own)

    You avoid them just because they LISTEN to it? icon_neutral.gif

    I like it! I don't really know how I react to a person... I mostly just listen to the music, either Polish or Spanish.

    Well, it allows him to avoid certain groups of people he already doesn't like......

    I used to like it before it got seized by the Top 40/Pop market. It'll never be the same. Haven't really paid attention to much post-2000.
