Do pretty gay boys have it easier in a straight world?

    The current thread about racism got me thinking about homophobia....

    In my experience, people who, for whatever reason, are homophobic tend to be so warm and nice to me in person. I know it's because they think I'm cute. I mean, even straight guys react this way sometimes (which I guess is like a gay boy who wants to be friends with a pretty girl). It's flattering, but I just find it hypocritical, because I know what they really think behind my back.

    Has anyone else noticed this phenomenon? Do you think being pretty can get you a free pass of sorts?

    To be honest, the threat of being treated differently is one of the reasons I fear losing my beauty and take steps to prevent that from happening.icon_sad.gif

    Studies have shown that more attractive people do get treated better by both the same and the opposite sex. It isn't a conscious decision. When people see something pleasing, it makes them feel good, and they react in kind.

    Yes, being pretty does make it easier. After all, humans are naturally drawn to beauty.

    Every once in a while a str8 guy wants to get his cock sucked by a guy and prefers to see a pretty face looking up at him.

    Pretty gay boys serve a purpose and a need in our society.

    Being Mansome gets you str8 guy ass. Every once in a while a str8 guy wants to feel a hot dick attached to a hot man and they don't want to see their sister pushing it in back there.

    @all - Now do what Clay says!

    I agree, but, "Pretty" and "Handsome" are completely different things. People can think a guy is really "Handsome" (has more ruggedly good looks), and he will be treated really well in ALL circles of life. Whereas, a "Pretty" guy (especially, if he's effiminate), even in the gay community, will be treated badly, depending on which circles he enters.

    What do you think?

    Yes, arguably, there are many definitions of what people find attractive, and some guys are more universally attractive than others. But in general, if someone find you attractive, they will treat you better, even a straight guy treating another straight guy better.

    I didn't mean pretty in a derogatory way. It must mean something different where you come from.
    I meant attractive, which could be handsome or pretty.

    Actually, I find that alot of straight guys respond to pretty gay boys like they're women. I think their femininity draws on their biological instinct to protect them like they would a woman or a small child. I've even seen some straight guys get a little flustered over a pretty gay boy. I think it's when the, "what the hell am I doing?" sets in that problems arise.

    people get tired very quickly of a pretty/handsome/attractive face if there is nothing behind it just a vacuous self-absorbed bore

    But then there is always plastic surgery when the cracks appear and gravity takes its toll

    Well I don't know if I'd call myself pretty (that would be arrogant) but I agree with the above comments about how you can be treated by str8 men.

    Generally str8 men treat me like a girl. They call me 'love', compliment the way I dress sometimes or my hair etc etc BUT I never feel like I'm treated like the rest of the lads.

    There is this definite separation from other men and at times segregation due to confusion which isn't always nice if your a minority.

    So no I don't think 'pretty gay boys' have it easier. Your seen as less than because your not a 'real man' and certainly not a pretty girl.
