Can you tell if a guy is gay by the way he claps?

My friend says that straight guys clap by cupping their hands and putting them together at an angular motion. He says that many gay guys keep their hands rigid and straight up bringing their hands together like a mirror. What do you think? How do you clap?

You're kidding with this bullshit, right?

By the way he 'claps'?

Well, if he discovers the gonorrhea while he's peeing AND seated, he's gay.

No, straight men clap with their hands all rigid too. Like this one:

Gay men clap like the Duchess of Kent used to at Wimbledon.

I was in the audience at a TV talk/variety show and they provided clapping instructions and standing ovation instructions. The whole damn audience actually had to rehearse jumping up while clapping and yelling. There was an applause coach down in front, off to the side, that we were supposed to watch for clapping cues and when to jump up for an arriving guest.

I think the 'slow clap' from the movies is actually a gay thing? Meant to be used as a catty thing, not like they use it in the movies.

I do it the straight way.

The light clap is also kinda gay.

It all depends on how he claps while wearing green on Thursdays.

Applause and any enthusiasm in general is just like, sooo gay.

One thing is for sure, every time I have gotten the clap it was from a gay guy.

I snapped both wrists clapping too vigorously for Gaga at the VMAs. My hands hung like limp rags from my arms, and I had to beg an elderly neighbor to wipe my butt for me.

No you can't tell if he's gay by the way he claps but here are two ways to tell:

1) Tell him to look at his fingernails. If he straightens his hand he's gay. IF he curls his hand sort of like a fist and turns his wrist around he's straight.

2) Tell him he's dragging something on the bottom of his shoe. If he kicks his heel back and looks backward at it he's gay. If he bends his knee so he heel comes up between his knees he's straight.

I can tell if a guy is gay by the way that he dances

I can tell if a guy is gay by the way that he prances.

This is the only gay clapping I'm interested in.

No, just by how he gets the clap.
