    Why do people do that? This one guy at the bar at the other day called me son and I was like, "you're younger than me".

    Does it bother you?

    I'd take girl any day, because it's usually in jest.

    Trollileo saidOnly if they're into kinky father/son rubbish. This was the main reason I've deleted any and all gay networking accounts outside of RJ.


    This does seem to be the least offensive gay site I've ever been a part of.

    It's a Southern thing. I doesn't have to be derogatory or condescending.

    I think it's all in the context in which it was meant. I know several guys who just do that, especially those older than me. From them, it wouldn't phase me. I put it in the same category as the comment, "young man". It could be offensive, but isn't. A friend on FB recently used the "young man" line and I just chuckled.

    It could be offensive if the "son" comment was used as a way to categorize or demean you. If I ever picked up on that, I'd just say, "I'm not your son".

    No one has ever called me son except for my parents.

    I don't think I'd like being called son by someone else. I'd probably make a comment about how I had sexual intercourse with their mother, and I might become there new daddy.

    Well, it's like this son…. when you're my age, everyone can be a son, son of a bitch, son of sam or just plain son of a gun so we old folks just abbreviate to 'son'.

    Seriously, I call my real son 'son' when I speak with him. I'll call him and say 'hey son, how are you?'. He's the ONLY one that gets that honor and it means a lot to me to be able to do that.

    "Son" doesn't bother me.

    When strangers say "hey guy" to me, it feels weird.

    I've referred to younger men as son, and it's in an intent to be friendly and complimentary and as a reference to the age difference between us. I don't mean it to be condesending or sexual - I may need to re-think that if guys don't like to hear it.

    Son was a slang way of saying dude from my experiences. People still use it like that today . At least in NYC

    I think it's funny when they call me that, especially from Hot younger guys who don't know that I'm older than them.
    Kinda Hot... icon_wink.gif
