Do gay couples or gay people in general like to gossip?

    Or is it the same with all people? Just wondering how you guys are. I'm in a gay neighborhood where there are at least 3 gay guy couples on every block. Over the years I notice the couples really trash other people in the neighborhood when they get together. I just don't understand all that. There are people that will never talk to other couples because of it, etc.

    No. Everyone gossips and trash talks. It's not just a gay thing.

    straights are the worst gossipers ... why? ... because people that gossip feel they are somehow better then those they are gossiping about

    It's common, but not just between gay guys....although it seems, in some gay circles that there's a licence for cattiness...I've been in groups with straight men and they gossip as well, just not as bitchy or with as much venom.

    I avoid gossip, I refuse to take part in it and will remove myself when I begin to hear poison from another's mouth. I have no respect for gossips, I don't trust them and I have no interest in the dirt they're trying to spread.....it's the lowest form of communication.
    'nuff said.

    Gays have the promiscuity of men and the drama of women. The "best" of both worlds.

    Do you have any straight female friends? Ask them about other women gossiping and they'll tell you all about it. If not, watch any of the episodes of Housewives or Vanderpump Rules on Bravo.

    I have worked with straight male field technicians for about 17 years now and they are the most gossipy bunch of girls I've ever seen.

    Gossip comes to me to die. I don't trash other people behind their backs and you will lose my respect if you do.

    Totally the same with all people. Gossiping has nothing to do with intelligence, but it reinforces our notions of right, wrong, and who are our allies. It's a natural part of human existence in order to (oddly) promote group solidarity.

    Your profile, OP, says that you are 44. How can you possibly live to such an age and be so naive?

    Gossiping is the past time of the masses, along with organized religion and major league sports

    Gossiping is what anthropologists and psychologists would call "social grooming." I forget the name of the anthropologist, but he did a study once where he went around and ease dropped on people's conversations, and he found that nearly everyone gossiped for the majority of the conversation, regardless of age, sex or SES.

    We human beings are very social creatures, and it's hypothesized that gossiping is a type of social adhesive, i.e., social grooming. Think about our closest primate relatives. They sit together and "groom" each other while pulling bugs and other insects off. In a way, we do the same, except we pull out the mental bugs from our friends and acquaintances. Gossiping unites people and brings us together.

    Also, some anthropologists and linguists believe that language actually originated around the fire pit because that was the time we congregated at night to eat and to be protected from the wild creatures, and as a result, gossiping has been around for almost as long as human language. Language and gossiping is a very social activity that is shared all across the globe, nothing unique to gals or us gays.

    gossip, the lowest least mentally taxing form of conversation.

    I hate gossip. So much so I refuse to take part in it at all.

    I'm as much interested in peoples lives that I don't personally know as I am in in whats happening across the road.

    aka, as long as they ain't hurting anyone I couldn't give a shit.

    Fucking hate gossip . The logic between he said she said is stupid because someone told you they think something happened than that thought gets spread on its so stupid . Worry about what you know for sure and that's only your business .. I never care about other people lives that's just me though

    My husband and I, rarely talk about others. Nor is it a prerequisite, for us Bona Fide Homosexuals either; not to say some of us do.
