    I just wanted to express my opinion and hear about yours on this topic. I find really offensive to find people hiding their face in all their pictures, just like they were criminals. I really think those people see the gay thing as something degrading, I could get it from a teenager but from 30yo guys? seriously? I think is time for those people to start being true to themselves.

    Completely agree. Hear, hear!

    Seriously, come out already and show your face! I'm gay.. You're gay.. We're all gay! It's 2013. Not 1913. Hell, there were gay men in the year 13. It's time we all proudly showed our faces.

    I agree but some of us truly are butt ugly.

    In a hoody, I'm not quite as handsome as Palpatine.

    I love being judged it happens in so many aspects of my... Scratch my and replace w/ life in general. I could choose not to show my face for various reasons. Maybe I feel old ugly and weathered and who knows perhaps the same OP will start a thread about how only a certain look is worthy on a site filled w/ ego at every click.

    Wherever the faceless pic is in their life and whatever reason is rational.... Is, and should not be judged by you or anyone for that matter. Your entitlement to view my face is... Irrelevant.icon_rolleyes.gif

    I think the OP is hiding his body. I want too see your nipples before I interact with you any further.icon_twisted.gif

    I disagree. I think it's up to the individual to reveal themselves when they're ready and that guy should never be pushed to doing something he believes is uncomfortable. Their reasons for not revealing are numerous whether it's their job, family life, etc. Whatever the reasons are, I absolutely respect them and their choices.

    I was speaking to a guy whom you described OP. The reason why he chose to be hidden is because of a high profile job. However, he unlocked his private photos for me where he had his face pics (no nudes) once he trusted me following our conversation. And what a beautiful man he is too! So overall it's their privacy. Their are tons of guys already on this site with their face showing so if a headless pic is chatting with you, ask for his pic and if he refuses to reveal, simply move on.

    Why don't we apply this same logic to nicknames? Why do people need them instead of using their full name everywhere?

    I've dated my fair share of "discreet" guys and it never bothered me until recently. BEING GAY IS LEGAL. You aren't hiding from the law, and if you're so embarrassed by your homosexuality that you're hiding it from your job and family, then yes I will be offended. The world thinks there are so few gay men (when I asked my coworkers, they all felt it was probably less than .1%) and that's because you're all hiding and being embarrassed by it. Be at least a little proud of it and maybe the world would be able to understand a little better.

    Now you're two cents richer, congrats.

    While I usually go by this, people being embarrassed of their homosexuality concerns me to an extent. Either I want to help them come to terms with it, or I'm hurt that they think it's undignifying enough to hide it. Maybe offended isn't the right word, but certainly a little hurt.

    Stick around longer. You'll see some of those headless profiles reveal themselves. RJ is a form of therapy for some guys. Maybe they're insecure about their looks, or maybe they're a late bloomer and aren't sure about their sexuality. Instead of being hostile towards these guys, try to be a little sympathetic. Some of them will eventually step out of their comfort zone and be more open.

    If you don't have the patience for that, then no one is forcing you to interact with them.

    As much as I like seeing a face behind a post, I don't know others' situations or circumstances, and two other aspects to this.
    1 google image search, which can match/identify a face here with someone out there, so to speak.

    I assume this is a troll thread since the OP is gone, or maybe he was blasted out of here by a bunch of hate mail. I make jokes about the headless torsos, but I get it. There still aren't enough protections in the U.S. for gay people. Losing your job because you belong to a gay web site and have your face pic posted isn't worth the risk for a lot of people. I make jokes because the situation is so absurd, but I understand the reality behind it. The last thing people need on a gay site is more judgements against them.
