    We all have them. What's yours?

    From "The Broken Hearts Club" - "Dennis: Well, here's to your first OGT. Obviously Gay Trait. Mine are: love of The Carpenters, culinary interests, and intense fear of blood sports."

    Culinary Interests
    Theater - Esp Shakespeare
    Collecting Antique Furniture

    Apparently, the ability to design and build a decent kitchen. There was a large party at my house, that I could not attend (long story). From what I hear most of the women (who mostly didn't know me) were gushing over the kitchen. First they were arguing about which of them would seduce me into marriage, so that they could get their hands on the kitchen. Then, they all decided that I could only be gay.

    Oh, and the track lighting.

    Well first off, I'd say the main OGT is how I moan with pleasure and beg for more (harder daddy, faster!) when up taking it up the bum.

    Second would be sense of style and knowledge of the rules of fasion and style. I've had my commander actually call me up on a weekend to ask if he could wear "this" with "that".

    Well, there's 40something, single, never dates women--a lot of people seem to pick up on that. Then there's the tendency to blurt out "I saw Mamma Mia and it was FAB-u-lous!"

    Event planning.

    Eight years ago I worked with 12 guys in an IT department. I'm was not so much closeted at the time as bi and trying to just fit into my straight lifestyle as much as possible. I had no intention of coming out or leaving my wife then.

    Thanksgiving came around and I asked if there was going to be a potluck or something. They all looked uncomfortable, so I offered to throw something together. I coordinated who was bringing what, got punch made and decorated for the event with tableclothes and holiday knick-knacks. It was a smashing success.

    So much for all my masc mannerisms, being married with a kid, my interest in Buckeye football, or attendance at Company golf outings - I was officially knick-named Martha Stuart. Christmas, Thanksgiving and another Christmas where all hosted by me and very well received. I continued to be 'Martha' and I brushed off the teasing from the guys in the department. However, it was the last straw when I was introduced to the Chairman of the Board of this $200M a year company as 'Martha Stuart'. He looked at me and his warm smile sort of faltered and then he recovered and moved on. That was the last party I hosted there.

    uhmm. Stopping dead in my tracks on the footpath/sidewalk to check out a hot guy or...
    a drop-dead gorgeous woman in a way that a straight guy would never dare do in public!

    Giving out free compliments in public:
    to handsome guys (orientation unknown),
    women with extroardinary flair ("great hair/dress, luv!"), and to
    beautiful couples, usually newlyweds and guys walking hand-in-hand.

    It must make it Double Obvious then when I do all of the above while walking my two "excessively cute" westies.

    rawrrr. I am a man.

    The interior of my home at christmas.

    The table I set for dinner parties.

    How I wrap a present.

    Or maybe it is just my expensive taste.

    I think my OGT's mostly cancel out my AGT's (Anti-Gay Traits).

    I cook, sew, crochet, decorate, and can coordinate clothes (as well as sling an insult in a way only a gay man can). And yes, I know the difference between a charmeuse and a crepe and a chiffon...

    But I also chop wood, practice archery, backpack, can't do anything with my hair, and don't keep a clean house. And yes, farting and belching are normal bodily functions. Deal with it.

    I love poetry and art. I paint. I cook. I have a Macintosh. I am a renaissance man, an idealist and a dreamer.

    On the other hand I like surfing, rugby, hot wings, a good beer and tailgate parties. I don't look good in pink. My hair is as anarchic as I am.

    I hope we can move away from the proliferation of such stereotypes. My closest male friends (alas back in England but very dear to me) by such coarse criteria apparently *much* more 'gay' than I do. Which is wonderful in a sense, because it reflects that we are intelligent, interesting people comfortable and yet playful with our identities; and we are able to do so because we live in an open, tolerant society. I reflect that I am lucky: I know many of Kipling's thousandth men.

    Oh it was *One* gay tendency. Ok then: I shop at Abercrombie. How gay is that? :-)
