    yes , those newspaper in here they always write something like "let's see how THE THIRD gender world looks like..." , "the story of the third gender world" ... etc ...
    That's just a way to say about gay but it really bothers me icon_neutral.gif

    Apparently the authors think gays are a bunch of fem bottoms lusting for straight men. How decadent and disturbing to know that many of us think this is true.

    All I understood is that we react to sexual stimuli in similar ways to straight men, which does NOT mean that we're completely the same the way the title of the article suggests. Just because we enjoy the same kinds of porn for the same reasons doesn't mean we're completely analogous. In other words, I think the title seems TOO broad with regards to the actual for the findings...just my opinion...

    Btw, the whole thing that gay men want young men is kind of an assumption cuz we've also got the sugar daddy flip side which a lot of people ignore...


    As for the third gender thing, people that exhibit the stereotypically "gay" behaviors don't really fit the same cultural/social norms that most "hetero" men do so I could see why people would argue that. That doesn't mean we're a different sex, as per chromosomes we are male...that doesn't mean your gender (i.e. behavior as given your sex) correlates 100%, even given the social/cultural norms etc...again, just my two cents....

    The article makes a good number of interesting points, but also indulge in 'cliche".

    Reading it, it sound like there is something as a typical gay male, and something as a typical straight male.
    A male is a male, I never, ever saw any character or behavior flaw not equally shared by gay and straight males of the same culture.
