I have a theory that because straight men are considered 'alpha', and put on a pedestal, pampered- that they are able to focus on things better. Like they don't have a worry in the world to interfere with their concentration. And that may read as smarter.

That sounds credible to me, R3. If you are considered the default human, you don't worry about being taken seriously by others as women or gay men might. It's about confidence.

Why are gay men obsessed with straight men?
Can someone make this thread please?

That's ridiculous. Not all straight men are "alpha," nor are all gay men "beta," nor by any stretch are all straight men "put on a pedestal" and "pampered." This is an absurd overgeneralization.

Most men generally overrate their intelligence and looks.

Indeed, R10. Check the comments of any "HBD" (human biodiversity/IQ fetishism) blog for proof.

I agree with R7.

They aren't. A lot of gay men have Tracy Flick Syndrome--they think they're smarter, wittier, and more sophisticated than most other people; however, at the end of they day they're just trying to escape. What they're trying to escape from can differ from case to case, but usually their lives are masked by a pretense meant to obscure humble roots, lifelong struggles with weight, strained relations with family members, or omnipresent feelings of loneliness.

Straight men have to use a fair amount of their brain developing strategies to get laid.

I used to think gay men were smarter, but this site disproves my lazy assumption daily.

If you are born white, straight, and at least upper middle class and don't go on to become a senator...you failed.
But seriously, r19 has part of the reason. Also, smarter might not be the right use of language as the outward criteria of smartness is weighted towards qualities of cultivated appearance and verbal skill and expressiveness. Gay men tend to fair better when these exterior traits are judged. We are the best at faking these qualities too.

When it comes to the arts, fashion, etc. we are smarter. When it comes to politics, NO!

Politics is like gossip to most, they don't really understand the damage of not learning the game.
Some Lesbians seem to be pretty good and fixing and building stuff.

From my experience, lesbians make great engineers.
Gay guys are excellent at music, fine art, marketing, PR, athletics, and healthcare.
All from my experience though.

I noticed that in families where the sons are worshiped and the daughters left to themselves, the gals turn out to be better and smarter people.
I think that is the same case in a society that worships straight, white, men.

The outsider experience and perspective (if it doesn't make you insane), makes you smarter. You are constantly observing and analyzing things. Someone not in the position of the outsider does not do that.

R44, maybe it's NYC, but majority of gays (in or out) I've known are fundamentally right wing. Of course, not all, but I think the transactional nature of pickup sex has something to do with it. Other elements might be self-reflective sexuality or hermetic aetheticism.
By no means universal. Know many selfless of our ilk.

I'm with 45--I know a lot more Jacks working retail than I have Wills working in the business world. I also believe there are a great many more gay guys than straight guys saving for retirement and not for the latest fashions and cool gay car.
