Do some guys look gay no matter what?

Postby dracuscalico » Sun Oct 05, 2008 7:49 pm

I am not talking about how a guy walks, talks or moves, and not talking about "gaydar", but strictly on the apperance of his PHYSICAL attributes. Like could you see the guy was gay even if he was asleep, or if he was in a police lineup with identically dressed men, or if you were picking models from headshots in a book.

What physical features in a man's face make him look gay?

What physical features in his body make him look gay?

In nearly 50 years of being out in this society and looking at thousands of men I can say there is nothing about a man's physical appearance, i.e., head shape, body condition, hand size etc. that marks him as gay.

There are applied physical things that imply gay; like frosted hair, flamboyant clothing style, make up, excessive jewelry, etc. But even that isn't necessarily always accurate. Mr. T wears enough jewelry to be a walking repository for Zales. Many actors/personalities wear make up and have high style hair and wardrobe.

IMHO without these societal incidental clues there's really isn't any predicable method to identify gay men solely by physical shape/appearance.

I didn't like the story even though this is the second time I've read it. It was just musings but not really definitive. :?

Gayface really is more of a cultural thing just like a southerner's face or any subgroup within a psychodemographic. Depending upon whom you are used to dealing with, you adopt similar modes of expression including, gestures, facial expressions and vocal tonality. When the muscles are consistently used in a specific way they develop that way, like worriers have worry lines or mean people having overdeveloped frown lines. If you are looking at features that are a direct result of muscular development like along the cheeks and jawline from sucking a lot, that would be more realistic than saying someone's LIPS look like they suck a lot...

As far as c - ck sucking lips, there's a difference between saying someone's lips LOOK like they have done a lot of c - ck sucking, versus saying that they have the IDEAL LIPS FOR IT, should they ever decide to do it. There are lots of skinny lipped guys out there who have been sucking for years and STILL have skinny lips. If sucking really gave you bigger lips, no one would need lip filler injections, as there is no shortage of guys who are willing to let someone suck them. :twisted:

All of this would be comparable to the difference to between calling a guy a "bottom" simply because he has a bubble butt not knowing anything about him, versus saying he has an IDEAL A - - for f - cking SHOULD HE EVER DECIDE TO DO IT. There are plenty of flat butted bottoms out there who have been getting pounded for years and STILL are just as flat,(just as there are little d - cked exclusive tops whose d - cks STILL don't look any bigger after years of pounding a - - ....)


I do agree that there are a combination of facial characteristics that seem to be more prevalent in gay guys, but it has more to do with culture and the way they are accustomed to emoting with their faces within that culture that is the giveaway.

well...back in 2000 when NSYNC were big, the second i saw Lance Bass and all the girls were gawkin over him, i was like "...i think this dude is gay..." it's the arched eyebrows and the "gentle" eyes (which i think came to him genetically).

But i think its very possible. If being gay is a genetic thing, then looking "gay" could also be a genetic thing.

I have never thought I look any different than any one else. However a few years back, my wife, a friend who is lesbian, and I were talking about different things. Somehow we got on the subject of DSL's. We all agreed that Angelina Jolie has the best, hands down. But then my wife said that I wold give her a run for the money because I definitely have DSL's. :wink: Our friend agreed! To be honest, after they pointed it out, I looked real close, they were right! Oh our friend said I have great DSL's but she definitely has "PSL's". :lol:
