    1. The gay accent. Yes, it exists. The only reason people don’t bring it up is because people feel it’s a negative quality that shouldn’t be talked about. But it’s not. It’s just another way people speak. Most gay guys have this tone in their voice that is just kind of softer or lighter. Or just the way they say certain words, emphasive certain parts of the word (especially dragging on endings), or carry their conversations.

    No it's all bull shit. You should see my hips move when I walk. Also, beer is the ONLY kind of liquor I like.

    Whatever your ambitions are I think it's pointless to make such arguments. Let people be who they are going to be- straight, gay or bisexual.

    I have two friends that I've just recently met. Both have a certain quality to their voice that made me suspect they were gay. One of them just introduced me to his long time girlfriend and the other won't stop talking about girls (and trust me, it's not a cover). They must get really tired of girls thinking they're gay.

    I used to have a roommate who had this so-called "gay accent", and I thought he was gay for the longest time (as in a few weeks) until I heard him having sex with his girlfriend, and I believe they have moved in together since last year.

    Also, I know more gay guys who have "straight accent" than the ones with "gay accent".

    So no, unless if the only gays that you know are the stereotypical ones portrayed in the media by straight actors and with scripts written by buncha homophobic idiots, you would know that this whole "gay accent" thing is just some ridiculous bs.

    LOL That's not true, that's just another way of stereotyping and generalizing, so what about guys you wouldn't think they were gay until they told you? They don't have this so called gay accent. icon_confused.gif

    gurl please, you should see my hips! *finger shake thing in a 360 degree motion*

    The voice thing doesn't mean much..I've defiently met some guys who sound a bit more effeminate (gentle i should say..i dunno) and are straight, in relationships or some even married. It doesn't mean a whole lot

    I sound like a chain-smoker IRL but I like sex with men. I confuse people.

    is it just me, or does it sound like that was written by a screaming queen? I can just hear the voice in my head lol. and for the record. I LOVE rum and beer, coolers give me a headache. I dont have limps wrists, i use my left hand on my blackberry, i pull the straw out of my drink and sip from the glass unless its a cup with a lid. my upper body doesnt lock when i walk. total BS. Oh and apparently the originator of that article watches a lot of gay guys drink. now i wonder why?

    I do love me a dirty martini! And if I get beer, it's usually a Blue Moon with a slice of orange on the side. The list caught me.

    To be fair, while not all gays meet all (or even any) of those descriptions, people meeting those descriptions do tend to be gay and a lot of gay guys match most of those descriptions (though the cellphone thing seemed random and limp wrists actually don't seem very common too me).

    Not all stereotypes are baseless. Just because it's not true of everyone, doesn't mean that there isn't any statistical validity to it. It's a little silly to argue against it really...

    I agree with Monger... what a crock of shit icon_rolleyes.gif. I also have a very good friend who is 100% straight and loves the pussy (I mean love), he has a higher pitched voice but is far from being gay.

    I always found that the top indicator that a man is gay is his penis becomes erect about males he finds attractive. The rest is irrelevant.

    It's nice to see exceptions to the case, because masculinity needs to be challenged, but there is something to gay talk that's a social indicator of sexual orientation. So I disagree with those who deny that you can't tell if someone is gay by the way they speak.

    This issue is studied in linguistics and there's a dissertation recently done on the topic:

    Piccolo, F. (200icon_cool.gif. Listener-identified phonetic correlates of gay-, lesbian-, and straight-sounding speech (Doctoral dissertation). Retrieved from ProQuest. (UMI No. 1528449201).

    From that study, it cites three other studies published in 2003 and 2004 that models gay talk.

    For reals. As annoying and potentially offensive as they can be, stereotypes originate somewhere very close to the truth.
