Tazo995 saidSo you went to one of the meetups? How'd it go?
I was expecting that the gaybros would be your typical bros -- sound like a bro, act like a bro. The moment I heard the first of them started talking, I was taken aback, but I was like, "okay, maybe that's just him sounding like that and not all of them."
Then I met gaybro number 2, 3, 4, and 5... and all of them sounded the opposite of what I was expecting. Some of them even had more elaborate feminine mannerisms. So I was like, "cool, I guess this is what they are," and I just proceeded to socialize with them that night and threw away all of my expectations.
We bar/club hopped and ended up at dance club next, and one of the gaybros asked me to dance with him. It felt awkward because I don't dance (and most bros I do know don't dance), but these gaybros dance ala gaga. So yeah, that dancing ended quickly.
Probably the last straw for me was when one of the gaybros dared me to kiss one of the other gaybros. I thought it was distasteful for a first meeting and somewhat disrespectful. (And it's shit like this that give the stereotypical gay a bad rep.)
A couple of them were cool and respectful, so I had no problems with them. But overall, I felt their gaybro facade was false advertisement. I think gaybros should refer only to masculine and bro-like demeanor. If one sounds like a queen, dances like a queen, acts like a queen, that person ain't gaybro.
In any case, I don't even want to be associated with the term gaybro for now. I think the interwebz is still trying to grasped this new terminology. I'd say I prefer to associate myself with "straight-acting jocks."
