    So Here I have compiled a list which contain common subtle and obvious indicators a guy is gay - in the closet.


    Please keep in mind this is all for fun and "useful purposes" I DO NOT intend to offend anyone... and most of this is STEREOTYPING but in a "fun" way I guess??

    I found these throughout forums and personal experiences.

    1. Limp Wrist syndrome

    2. Snake neck syndrome - Sometimes they rest their head in a weird way to the side- like if they were really tired/bored or sleeping on someone’s shoulder (straight guys keep their head alert on their shoulder, alot of girls pose for pictures like this-- smiling and cocking their head to side)

    3. Most of their favorite artists are from famous powerful women.

    4. Crossing their legs a little too tight (nutsack squeezer)icon_biggrin.gif

    5. Catch them checking out hot dudes obviously icon_lol.gif

    6. They have this girly look to their eyes (would check out people from the corners of their eyes like a sly cat) or like to batter their eyelashes

    7. Have a gay face ( pouty lip, predatory-surprised look to their eyes)

    8. When they stand they kinda lean and put all the weight on one leg and bend their body = gay sassy stance

    9. Constantly checking their face in a mirror every time they get

    10. Love to wear flip flops

    11. Gay lisp

    12. Most of their friends are girls

    13. Uncomfortable around guys that are not their friends ( can’t socialize quite the same as a heterosexual)

    14. Usually take a gazillion “selfies”

    15. Obsessed with Divas (sassy role models)

    16. When they walk you can’t tell the top of their body is moving, (a bit awkward—not fluid /relaxed like a straight dude)

    17. Dresses a little too well for even a fashion conscious hetero

    18. Their arms and legs are usually really close or clenched to their body when they sit—closed posture (imagine semi- fetal position) or as if they are cold

    19. Like to work out obsessively

    20. Sometimes when they walk they put their arms up like they are holding a cup of coffee—straight guys keep their arms loose and relaxed at their side (think of a praying mantis or Roger from American Dad)

    21. Can’t handle joking insults from straight dudes even though no harm was intended—they react like insecure girls.
    22. The pupil dilating to attractive guys.

    23. MOST of them hate to watch sports and don’t understand why straight guys love football so much.

    24. No girlfriends or if they have some but overly publicize it to eliminate any doubts

    25. Pretend to be really homophobic

    26. Dancing subtly girly-most closeted will try to not to look feminine when dancing but sometimes they can’t help it.—this one is obvious

    27. Holding cellphone with right hand??? – I have no reason why this is but I heard it mentioned a couple times

    28. Holding a straw while drinking??? – I have no idea why for this either but It is indeed a feminine dainty-mannerism.

    29. Gay guys love to walk around and check out as many people as possible—like if they are walking down the hall or mall they scan and check every person out or they do it subtly by corners of their eyes. Or when they are sitting down and someone comes through the door they are usually first to whip their heads around and look.

    30. Hair flips even though there is no hair in their eyes or long hair. I don’t know why but this is but a lot of gays do this when someone talks to them, they will WHIP their head around (refer to snake neck syndrome)—straight guys will just turn normally even if it is fast


    SO HOW MANY OF THESE APPLY TO YOU?

    Stereotyping is fun, according to the OP.

    So basically you are saying they act like valley girls and are continually checking out every man that walks by.

    Well duh gurl ... but that doesn't cover any of the DL men.

    Sorry, but none of the 30 applies. Those are just homophobic idea of gay people. Interesting enough, a lot of persons grow up subscribing to a lot of what is listed, but it doesn't necessarily mean its how they should behave, just how society has molded them.

    I think being attracted to a man is the most masculine thing you can find in a man. What straight society has done is twist it, because the traditional idea of sexual attraction is man being attracted to woman and woman attracted to man.

    So if you are attracted to a man, you are a woman or have woman feelings. Very twisted.

    Another thing, a lot of these stereotypes associated with Gay culture come out of school, young and being bullied. The descriptions: sissy, runs like a girl, crying and not showing interest in activities like sports or talking about girls and cars.

    Nothing is wrong with that, its just that society has applied a context in gay culture called the effeminate male. Some men end up adopting it as their true identity of what is homosexuality. Unfortunately, when you are gay, to most ignorant straight people, homosexuality ends up defining your entire character instead of just being a part of who you are as a person

    Just because a guy likes other guys doesn't mean he acts like this. People on here get all crazed about the term "straight acting" but it's used so much because there are a lot of masculine guys who naturally don't act like that list and cannot relate to that male-feminine behavior.

    AMoonHawk saidSo basically you are saying they act like valley girls and are continually checking out every man that walks by.

    Alot of these cover DL men!

    1. Limp Wrist ( alot of DL men don't even notice they are doing it)

    6. They have this girly look to their eyes (would check out people from the corners of their eyes like a sly cat) or like to batter their eyelashes

    (Alot of gays/ Dl men look through the corners of their eyes and not even realize it is just subtle, straight men tend to look at people or check out girls with full head turned directly at them that is why straight guys always get caught)

    8. When they stand they kinda lean and put all the weight on one leg and bend their body = gay sassy stance

    I notice this posture in alot of closeted gays who admit to it later on and do not even realize it. It is very subtle like if they put their arm on their hip than that look really obvious but straight men tend to stand with feet equally apart and not really bending or leaning on one leg

    13. Uncomfortable around guys that are not their friends ( can’t socialize quite the same as a heterosexual)

    This one is clearly an obvious indicator to DL men, I'm pretty sure Valley girls have no problem socializing and flirting with dudes.

    16. When they walk you can’t tell the top of their body is moving, (a bit awkward—not fluid /relaxed like a straight dude)

    This is another subtle one that you might not really notice unless you check yourself walking in the mirror or something..

    18. Gay guys tend to have more closed posture.

    (most straight guys tend to sit with very open posture like their crotch is literally displaying and their legs are wide and arms apart, while SOME DL men kinda have very closed posture.

    20. Sometimes when they walk they put their arms up like they are holding a cup of coffee—straight guys keep their arms loose and relaxed at their side (think of a praying mantis or Roger from American Dad)

    This is another one that is not super obvious

    30. Hair flips even though there is no hair in their eyes or long hair. I don’t know why but this is but a lot of gays do this when someone talks to them, they will WHIP their head around (refer to snake neck syndrome)—straight guys will just turn normally even if it is fast

    I personally notice this in a ton of gay even "masculine" men they it is not like a cliche obvious hair flip but sometimes they do it when they are caught off guard.


    someone could NOT MATCH A SINGLE ONE of these and be gay or vice-versa but these are just subtle indicators...

    If someone winks at you in the gym, is he gay? If he introduces himself to you, is he gay??
