    I sure agree with this. As the old man of RJ and one of the earliest to cum out, I rarely ever miss.

    "In other words, gay men, according to scientists, boast "a mosaic of both feminine and masculine features."

    That coupled with watching them move or say a few words gets it virtually every time.

    "Results indicate that the faces of homosexual men were rated more "masculine" by viewers, defying the stereotype that gay men "look feminine.""

    In many countries like India, Pakistan, Arab countries, a lot of african ones, people from north america would assume they are gay due to more mild mannerisms and rituals like holding hands in public etc.


    True, much harder if not of 'this' culture.

    This makes sense. Gay men are attracted to men. If they looked too "feminine" there would be almost no attraction. But gay men may sometimes be attracted to the faces of straight men, but they can't be too straight. So on balance, their morphology is a mixture of maleness and femaleness. The faces of gay men would probably look very masculine, with a mixture of male and female qualities.

    I've heard that there is a "gay face" but could never figure out what the features were that made a face a "gay face." Always thought it was a myth.

    Well then, the latest gay porn, the metro sexual, the scruff bear and urban hipster movements is surely obscuring these lines among survey takers.

    I think its more on the lines of stereotyped visibility. For 40 years or more, the only 'known gay men' was the stereotype. A cop, firemen and average joes can now be openly gay, as more and more men come out, the Carson Kressley stereotype will fade and there wont be a need for these survey takers, its the Kinsey scale moving to the middle, as the average

    When it was the Village People in the 70's, America did not put them into a gay stereotype and most people singing to YMCA did not know about gay 'bath houses', most people enjoyed the song because of its catchy tune and dance craze

    I wonder why researchers try so hard to pinpoint a way to tell the difference. I wonder why people obsess on the reasons that a person might be attracted to one thing and not the other, and why it's all sex related. It's a strange way to go through life. I don't know of anyone making a big deal over research about why some like or don't like vanilla or cinnammon or whether or not there are ways to tell who likes what in those regards. It's only ever about sex. I appreciate, to a degree, that people want to know all about my sex life. Am I bottom, am I top, am I detectable, do I pass for straight, etc. Sometimes, though, I wish the worldwide world would just go about their own lives for a couple of days.

    i think it meant making facial expressions that were very similar to what stereotypical females made

    Well, I guess you mean men are becoming less afraid of being more natural -- after all many men are naturally smooth and without much beard.

    In some cases that's enough to tell, but face combined with speech and movement is generally plenty.

    A good example is a Lou Reed interview with Charlie Rose from ten years ago. He's was married to Laurie Anderson since 2008 until he passed last week. They were together for about 15 years before that. I think he was a genetic homosexual and is an admitted bisexual.

    Watch his hands from min 5:15 on for about ten seconds. That ain't no straight guy who does that.

    I don't think it is entirely in the face. I usually can tell a gay guy (or at least a feminine one) from a distance. The walk, the clothes, the clone look, the stance. And probably the eyes are a big factor. I don't have all of the facial characteristics listed so don't think it applies to all guys or races. There are gay guys that would never make it as a drag queen for example because they are more masculine looking.

    I read a study (that seemed authentic) and they came to the conclusion gay men have bigger packages, compared to straight men. I believe this was an independent study (no bias).

    I would've thought the opposite, since gay men tend to enter tighter quarters. I want to say around this time I read research that believed the head of the penis/ridge is used to hypothetically remove a competitors seminal fluid.

    Can't your penis just get hard because its a guy your brain is wired for? Why does it have to be something specific? Just like how you can't "prove" someone's skin color, I don't see how your attraction to a guy can necessarily be proven physically. Yes, there are preferences: muscles, height, social circles, scenes, activities, interests, but that is more cultural.

    What is this new term they're coming up with: "gay face"? Who would guess some guys "look" gay. Throw a "research study" over it, and take that away from the population. Give away your ballz if you let every printed article make you freeze, fly or fight. Don't we know this to be true already anyways? icon_rolleyes.gif

    Does that take anything away from gays in general; and what about the credibility of the study? Wow, the impasse between common sense and concrete science sure is short on this one.
    Almost like a study on bullying showing that bullying leads to low self esteem in some victims. icon_neutral.gif Can't roll my eyes far enough back to the "duh" of it all.

    I have a longer face and bigger nose so I guess that makes me "straight." I swear these studies are so lame and never accurate. icon_rolleyes.gif
