    Why don't people say things as they really are?

    Sounding gay = sounding like a woman

    The more "gay" you sound the more you resemble a female in the way you speak.

    Funny ... lots of straight men sound gay to me ... you can hear that little higher pitched reverberation in the back of their throat ... but you have to catch them off gaurd ... most 'masculine' sounding voices are an act ... I can remember my cousin puposely changing his voice when he was real young so he would sound more manly .... most masculine voices are an act ... a masculine voice is associated with a deeper voice, so most men lower their voice (consiously). And they also give the look ... the mean face look, to also appear make them appear to be more masculine. They work hard at it to keep up appearances. And another thing they do is avoid looking at people, especially guys, but sometimes you can catch them at it. All that acting and sounding masculine (straight) .... takes a lot of work.icon_confused.gif

    People have the right to sound however they want. I sound pretty monotonous at times. That's not any better. Elliot(DR Robot) is making it sound pretty cool though

    Actually, everyone's voice irritates me. Let's all take of vow.




















































    Ow, well that hurt. I just started singing show tunes to block out the silence.

    ay?


    Most gays don't want to sound gay because they remember, for instance, such gay icons as Truman Capote, Liberace, TC Jones, etc. being made fun of because of the sound of their voices. Johnny Carson would always use a lisp when impersonating a gay person, yet he was a good friend of Truman Capote's.

    When I am at my parents house and I answer the phone they always think I am my dad. So I guess not.
    People are usually a little surprised when I tell them I'm gay. Or maybe they just think that's what I want them to be.

    I sometimes wish I would look and sound more gay.
    I think that gay guy who has his own back and doesn't ever compromise who he is is a strong image and I would be happy to look and sound like that.

    I always thought Jack was ten times the man Will was.

    So it's a self self-hating, I mean, self-preservation-thing??

    It reduces your chances of sexing a hot sexy masculine muscular straight-acting frat bro, and that is of utmost importance...even more important than breathing.

    I have always been turned on by guys voices. As long as it not put on or affected, I am drawn toward men who sound and act somewhat fem. This was especially true when I was younger and I was around younger guys. One of my first crushes was on John, a guy who loved to roller skate, spoke French, and had a nasal sounding voice. We played tennis together, were in debate together, and theatre. He was really nerdy in high school. When I saw him five years later, he was really hot. He was a really patient guy who was bisexual and versatile and taught me how to bottom. I wish he were still here. He died 30 years ago of HIV.

    I agree, every time a masculine closeted dude indicates that he wants to cheat on his wife by sucking my dick then bending over (they are always bottoms lol) I hold my breath and wish for the best. I've passed out a few times only to wake up to another random queen giving me mouth to mouth on the wrong body part.

    My favorite type of voice is the deep gay voice. The long drawn out melodic deep voice.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidIt's a whole movie?


    Saw the entire film - If it were a documentary about "sounding gay," it would have been more interesting. The film lost its focus after 10 minutes.
