"Gaydar doesn't exist."
Studies show that gays are better at identifying gays than straights are.
Luke Bryan has inbredface more than gayface.
Could be both, I guess.
[quote] Studies show that gays are better at identifying gays than straights are.
Gays tend to think most men are gay until they are proven wrong. Even then they are 'sure' a person is gay.
The amount of straight men gay men have told me they're sure are gay is ridiculous.
Also gays find bisexuality hard to grasp, mentally. They're always convinced they must be gay, gay gay and they're SO wrong.

No, no...R38 = homosexual male. But you validate my point to some degree, so thanks for that.
R33, you must be the only one who doesn't know.
Oh please, Michael C. Hall is gayer then gay. Just because he beards does not make him straight.
Williem or William Dafoe, whatever his name is has aids face and frankly, if you catch Hall in the right light, so does he.
Omg Willem Dafoe is so strangely hot. If you Google his name and click on images, 8 out of 10 images are so attractive. The guy just looks smart. Brad Pitt is so bland and such a poor actor to be celebrated, Willem Dafoe deserves so much more recognition.
"Gays tend to think most men are gay until they are proven wrong. Even then they are 'sure' a person is gay."
Like I said, gays do better at guessing if a guy is gay or straight than straight people. Studies have proven this. Straight people tend to think every guy is straight unless he is a HUGE flamer. But believe what you want to believe.
"Also gays find bisexuality hard to grasp, mentally. They're always convinced they must be gay, gay gay and they're SO wrong."
Bisexuals find homosexuality and heterosexuality hard to grasp, mentally. They insist that "everyone is really bi" even though studies show otherwise.
I'm trying to understand bisexuals. But every actor who claims to be bisexual, because he has slept with a few woman, they aren't all convincing me.
Bisexual, men and boys.
R46, your post should be at the top of every thread like this.
Willem Dafoe is hot, friendly, intelligent and....
Dan Feurriegel (sp) is gorgeous. Very very gorgeous ... [Disappears into hazy fantasy land populated by goats ....]
Cliff Richard [laughs for days ....]
Dafoe is a short guy, right?
Clark Gregg. It's a face that has launched a thousand cookie baking sheets.
Another one here pulled up short by "Michael C. Hall." Hell, I don't know that he's gay, but I know that he's gay. I've been passing that "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" poster in the subways every day for months. Don't even know if he's in it still. What other straight actor ever headlined that show? Come on. I think Andrew Rannells was in it just before Hall and even his poster didn't look as gay as Hall's.
I wasn't sure about Hall being gay during "Dexter" but then I saw 6 Feet Under and it sort of looked to me as if Hall tapped into his discomfort playing a straight guy to play Dexter's discomfort pretending to be a 'normal' guy, not to mention pretending to be hetero.
R59, John Cameron Mitchell, Hedwig's creator, is playing the part now. But he injured his knee last month and Hall came back for a week while Mitchell healed.
No denying he's gorgeous R52, but those eyebrows.... Come on.

Years ago when I was 21 I asked a straight sixteen year old guy how the hell gayface happens. Reason being, you can't tell everyone who is gay, because not all gays have gay face. But back then, at least, if someone had gay face, they were gay. I was just confused how so many men ended up with the same facial expression that told me they were gay (even though not all gay men had that facial expression). I think you're born with your sexual orientation, so does that mean some baby gays come out with gay face? Is it genetic?
I was asking this stuff and the sixteen year old looked at me and changed his face to gay face, and then back again. He was all "You mean this?". e
It was totally in the mouth and eyes. The mouth I can see, the eyes I'm not sure what's happening there, but it's unmistakable. You can't look at Andrew Rennels, even before he speaks, even if he hadn't shaved that day and you just saw him in saggy boxers or something, and not know he was gay. But if he had a straight identical twin, he'd look just like Rennells, but without the gayface, so I think it's not inherent, but something about the facial expression. I've read theories that it's "feminine", so I sometimes look at women on the subway thinking, what if they were dudes, would that be gay face? I'm undecided.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
