    When I see pictures of some gay guys like on Facebook, and hear me out, but why do most seem to have a look completely devoid of intelligence in their eyes, the pursed lips, and plucked eyebrows?

    I know there's different styles to gay guys, but I could never understand the connection between fashionistas and an utter hollowness to their eyes. There's nothing mysterious or sexy about it.

    Maybe it's just the really femmy kind but the only other guys I've seen do that are fuckin' guidos.

    Anyone know what I'm talking about?

    really? I see that in strraight guys pictures.

    Absolute blankness... even when gay guys say they are "Straight" acting. All I think is expressionless (you can just tell by looking at their facial expression that nothing is really going on inside that head).

    it's like actually funny sometimes...

    That could be true too, but coupled with the "fashion" they try to exude it makes gay guys come off a lot worse.

    It's funny that you think you can read minds by looking at their photograph. Maybe you should work for the CIA.

    I'll leave it up to someone else to repost the "gayface" thread.


    I'm too lazy,.



    But hey, it's better than the Myspace poses, where every guy stood in a mirror with their shirt off and every girl gave a peace sign, titled their head to the side and made kissy-lips.

    Well I can read your mind as you were typing that now, so you know, that may not be a bad idea.icon_biggrin.gif



    And I guess I have to make this disclaimer.... but I don't mean ALL the gay guys I look have that vacant, vacuous look, but many of the ones with the dyed, individually gelled hair, the plucked eyebrows, that do the pursed sucky sucky lips thing YES it many (not all) have that look.


    Just something I noticed. And if I wanted to kiss-ass about it, the reason I'm posting this here is because the vast, vast majority on RJ simply do not have that going... so kudos.

    Yeah I know what you are talking about. A gay guy assigning negative traits and stereotypes to gay men in general. Big red flag for me. There's a name for that kind of thinking........actually, a few names.

    Anto saidplucked eyebrows?

    I wish guys wouldn't do that!




    I couldn't agree with ya more! Some gay dudes take the "plucking" OVERBOARD. When I see 'em, all I can think is "Yiiiiikes!!" OR, "dang you're SURPRISED about something!" icon_lol.gif

    Oh for God's sake, come on. That's ridiculous. Do I look like I have Down's? Wait - don't answer that.

    Honestly I tended to notice a look similar to (but not exactly like) downs syndrome in most gay dudes I've met... droopy eyes, rounded face, goofy smile... maybe you're thinking the same sort of thing?

    would you know they were gay if you didnt know? Just based on their picture?

    Of course you wouldn't.

    Well I wouldn't go so far as equate the face with Down's Syndrome (who are lovely people) and I think I'd be doing a disservice to those with the condition. Down's that is.

    But thanks for those that have enlightened me to the issue that plagues our community... gay face.
