    Ok, so I know being voted Man of the Day is just some fun little thing on RJ....but, how do you campaign people to vote for you when all you have on your profile are torso shots? Not that im bitter or secretly wish people would vote my face photo heavy profile for such a dubious honor...

    maybe im just jealous that my abs alone wont win me any titles (nah, thats not it)...but last time I checked it took a full head to toe body to make a man...so how come here all we need is from the neck down? a loaded question, right?

    There are some here that may think the only thing that can get you MOTD are
    "torso" shots. I guess we'll see if thats true.

    We were MOTD. Yep, these old carcasses. It seems making MOTD is not always about perfect physiques.

    ...something to do with character; that is, profiles and posts.

    I completely agree with the sentiment.
    Should we celebrate someone who is unwilling to align their face with their gay and jock identities?
    The first step towards acceptance is self-acceptance.

    In his defense, someone has seen probably seen his face, since he has private pics... that said, i wouldn't vote a body man of the day without a face to match...

    Well I guess that depends on if your voting for the man on aesthetics frm what you call head to toe visual or for his character and possibly what his profile might say that his headless shot can't. some of the most beautiful men have some dumb ass shit to say and vice versa. For the most part a man should be judged by many things but hopefully his character shines thru at a much higher value rather than something that lies in the perception of others anyway. Then again I'm FACELESS!

    As a headless torso I must take a stand and speak for all the headless torsos out there icon_smile.gif : Yes, you are a little jeleous ! ...and perhpas a little bitter icon_eek.gif. Not everyone chooses to complitely expose their identity on a gay website (or any other for that matter & no I'm not on facebook) but others such as your self , have no problem with it, and that's ok. I'm a pretty private person and would not like to be recognized anywhere in my city as the guy from a gay fitness & life website, I like to call it my little secreticon_razz.gif. On the other hand, I do enjoy coming on this website for various reasons, one of them being the many super nice men that I have ended up chatting with from all over the world....so I guess not everyone minds chatting with a nice pair of tits & so don't always need a head to get ahead icon_lol.gif....but to be serious, I think it's all good, heads, torsos, even blanks i have chatted with. The general moto is live and let live & damn it ! have fun while doing it !

    .... so no I wouldn't care to be a man of the day cuz I'm already THE MAN hahahaha !!!! kiddin, kiddin

    It's ok, I guess, if a headless torso shot wins MOTD, but I would not vote for one. I always consider it a bit of a character flaw not showing your face on a profile, or having all the face pics locked.

    i can understand that, because of personal/professional constraints, some insecure not-quite-out guys would not want to post a pic of their face here.

    but...

    IMO, having an uncertain, insecure man of this ilk being selected for this honor rather lessens the status of the award.

    Interesting! Many things make up character besides someones face. I guess it all depends on what you value. If you click on profiles getting off on what you deem as pretty faces then yes I guess it would be a flaw not to objectify oneself for your pleasure. When all's said and done it's just a pix taken one day in someones life recent or yrs old who knows but the one posting it? The flaw should be judging that pix and projecting what or who you think that person is just because he is headless or faceless. then again it's all projection when you click a hundred or more on a HOT LIST. Just sayin

    Award? is it that serious...really. I've been witness to members campaign for other members in the forums and I think that's cool and all but an Award. It's just another light-hearted feature of the site or so I thought. maybe I have not taken it that serious?

    I don't look at many straight dating sites but I'm assuming there aren't many people that have profiles with their face obscured. If there are I can only come to the conclusion that they are ashamed for being on the website or their activities....since they are married etc. I don't really want to associate with people that are ashamed of who they are or their activities. Judging one by their profile(how they want to represent themselves) is valid.

    Not having a face pic on ones profile speaks volumes, whether that person not showing their face realizes it or not. I'm sure known sex offenders, as an example, wouldn't want their face pic all over the internet and profile.

    Sure, a lot of folks have very valid reasons in their mind why they do not show their face on their profile. After awhile it really does start sounding like a bunch of gobiddy gook nonsense.

    since it's a vote thing , anything 's possible.
    there's not accounting for people's taste ..or lack of.

    but when it comes for man of the week or whatever they're called, you know the ones we get in our weekly mail from RJ , then it's always a complete profile: identity, full face, activities etc.

    Who needs "Man of the Day" when you're hot listed by men on a daily basis?! That's enough for me.

    No, I´m not fucking going to obsess over choosing not to have a face pic. Get over it, move on. If you really have to judge people on that basis you probably need to get laid more often.

    Well on that note it's my misunderstanding that's led us to this crossroad. Since your comparing RJ to str8 dating sites. I have been under the impression that this was a gay men's fitness/health site, I'm sure there have been some hookups and romances that have been the outcome of a left click but that was not what I thought of the site primarily (my bad). Now as far as your parallel to headless or faceless shots to sex offenders... Are you for real? There could be many reason's for me not posting a pic. My Mom could be the 1st Blk woman councilwoman in local gov't here on long island and maybe this could strain an already poor relationship I have w/ my father if I were to come out now and perhaps I'm walking my path as I see fit to exposing my life as I want to live it on my terms. whatever it might be creating a dialogue w/ someone should be the focal point of any chat website or forum. learning can come headless or faceless sometimes but admiration can also come in a glossy 8x10 as well

    Lol, well you do have a point about being sexually frustrated. But everyone is judged by everything that they do by everyone else. It's preposterous to act like we all don't make judgement calls by the actions of others. icon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gif
