What Are Your Most Masculine Traits?

Postby rovie » Wed Jun 29, 2005 9:45 am

What do you consider are your most masculine, or straightacting, traits?

Is it the way you walk or talk, is it what you wear or how you cut your hair or beard, how you relate to people, or is it your work or what you drive that adds most to your straightacting tally? Maybe you consider yourself to be a masculine, or straightacting, all-rounder.

I was just thinking today as I was driving about, what is it that makes a gay guy identify as straightacting. I was entertaining the idea that you could have several very different guys from metrosexual to butch all consider themselves as straightacting/masculine..... and in my view.... they could all be right.

Hey Rovie.....

As i was sitting here thinking about this, i found it was hard to. I keep thinking about the most feminine traits simply cause they are theones i strive to change, but the masculine ones? Hmmm I'd have to say eating. I mean at 200 and change im no small guy, but i am not by anymeans huge. I just like to eat. I think that is one of my most masculine traits......

Let's see. I'm a little over six feet tall and I'm a big black guy with some flesh on his bones. I talk like a regular guy but I read a lot so it shows when I use words that most people don't use.
I respect sports and athletes but I'm not crazy about them. I like
looking at the pretty girls and of course, the pretty boys but that's just me. I'm just one of the guys, I guess. I'm not that good a dresser, I don't like watching Oprah, Lifetime, Oxygen or any of that stuff that stereotypically only women and some gay men watch.
I'm REALLY into Sci-Fi. It's practically all that I watch. I love Tv shows such as Angel, Buffy TVS, Charmed, Roswell, Big Wolf On
Campus, The Outer Limits and of course, Chappelle's Show on
Comedy Central. I love Saturday Night Live and Mad TV. I need to exercise this summer. Oh, I'm healthy. I could be doing better, you know. Yeah, that's me.

I need to engage in bisexual behavior on a massive scale. It cannot be corrected but I have no other way to fulfill my needs.

Watching things like Buffy and Angel are masculine :lol:
I was asked "how's it going", to which I replied "it's going, not sure where because I'm in no condition to drive."

What an odd yet challenging inquiry.... Hmm, my most masculine attribute? I suppose it's my physical appearance. I've got broad shoulders and many people tell me I look "fierce" (and not in the drag queen terminology way... :P ) I'd say my voice is pretty deep... Oh, and I love horror flicks as well! The bloodier, scarier, the better.

I dunno Rove...

When I think of what they are, I don't know what traits I have, i'd say are to be considered masculin or not.. I like cars..? but I know lotsa chicks that like musclecars and go to the track with thier husbands and race.. so that cancels that.

I used to think stuff like nice thick beards and hary chests were all masculin male traits, but I know now... thats no longer what they are, rather, they are just fukin hot. :lol:

I dunno... :?

My most masculine trait(s) hang(s) between my legs and occassionally gets sat on when wearing boxers. Other than that anything else is up in the air as to whether it's masculine or not.

I don't know if they are lowhangers or if the weather is just so hot that they try to get away from my crotch to cool down...lmao. But yes, it does hurt...that's why I rarely wear boxers. I usually wear boxer briefs or briefs to keep them in place. When I go commando I have to be careful though...OUCH!!!! :shock:

Hey Steve - Are you kidding? You love musclecars, you own them, work with them, you go out with them, compete in them.... I'd agree with you if you just turned up at the track on the weekend with your boyfriend...

When were beards and body hair not masculine? ..... you weren't indirectly referring to the bearded lady were you?

Im not really sure, but all my str8 friends think its weird for a gay guy to dip. I played baseball all through school and its just natural for me to do that.

I think the most masculine aspect of me is my walk and my general body language. I call all my male friends "buddy" and to some gay guys, this is very scary ( I really have no idea why)

I'm a short and somewhat thin guy, so my physical presence is not at all intimidating. I don't lisp, but my voice is sort of normal - neither high pitched nor very deep.

It turns dudes on to you....that's what it does.

MY most masc. trait would probably be getting real aggressive when I drink and sometimes getting into fights (don't worry guys, if I drink around you, I'll be cool.....only when I feel threatened).

Postby retlaw23 » Thu Jun 30, 2005 3:52 pm

People worry to much about it, why? We all have some traits that could are fem, so do the str8 guys, if you pay attention. Who are we trying to impress, be yourself and forget about what people think. "Its when they stop talking (about you) is when you have to worry." Yes there are some guys that take it to the extreme and they could bring it down a bit, but otherwise I dont really judge. That may not be who I am or who I would date but its cool for them, my bro is kind of fem and so are his friends and it works for them.
