AWG (Average White Guys) liked on DL

According to someone who has posted here in the past few days, DL has an interest in a type called "AWG" (average white guy). Who are some examples of the AWG liked on DL. What makes them "average"? Who are the non-average white guys?

by Anonymousreply 19906/24/2015

The Craigslist Killer. There were so many people raving about his hotness when that happened. Guy was totally ordinary but he was white and blonde so therefore a DL dreamboat.

I appreciate a cute or handsome guy. I do prefer the average guy, the guy next door. For me this is a man that has an average physique. Not pumped up to look like turkey ready for the roaster. No muscle boys, no shaved and tanned anything. No group think clothes or hair.

I'm with R9 on this. I don't understabd the sexual attraction to them, although for Louis Tomlinson I do. Another I would add to the "baffling attraction" list is Jake Gyllenhaal. I not only don't understand the attraction but also find him repulsive, almost revolting. I enjoyed Brokeback Mountain but sitting through an entire movie with him was very difficult. It's his only film I've ever watched.

Are more threads about AWG created due to the socio economic situation that prevents many black folks from paying to post? AWG's are hot news on DL, ABG's don't get a mention.

[quote] look at the threads here. Most of the ones claiming to be about "hot" or "beautiful" guys are almost all white guys, and almost all AVERAGE white guys. It's ridiculous. A lot of the people starting threads about "hot/beautiful/gorgeous" guys have horrible taste.

So bemoan the "average" guys. And start threads about hot non-whites.

by Anonymousreply 5011/05/2013

Someone should explain "personal taste" to R49. Colby Keller, Matt Bomer and Jon Hamm are 3 names in this thread that I would never consider "average". They're all gorgeous to me.

Now, having said that, I realize that that is my personal opinion and not a fact. That's why I said they're gorgeous "to me". However, they are all very conventionally handsome men, so someone insisting that they're only average does come off as a bit biased and weirdly defensive.

However, I'm sure R49 has a list of men a mile long that he finds attractive that would leave me scratching my head and wondering what all the fuss is about. That's personal taste. It's personal in that it only represents the speaker's point of view, and it's a matter of taste in that it is based on a oerson's opinion and not a verifiable fact.

Why or how this becomes about "white guys" I don't know. That's a leap that's only explained by racism.

by Anonymousreply 6611/11/2013

You must be new here R66. Hating on white guys is a DL staple. There's threads like this one, talking about how white guys others find attractive are really just average. There's the 'twin brothers get married' thread, which happens when two white guys tie the knot and have their picture in the paper (apparently people are supposed to marry outside their race). There's the 'it's impossible to discriminate against whites because they are in power' variety. Lastly, there used to be the 'I'm (fill in the blank with a non-white ethnicity), but white guys at bars (or on Grindr or whatever) won't sleep with me, the racists!', though thankfully those have tapered off some.

Not speaking for anyone but myself, but I'm not offended. I think it's a stupid thread, personally, that's all though. As someone else pointed out, no one person's idea of what's either attractive or average is gospel. If there are other threads where people are talking about guys they like, who are you to get on them for it? Ah, but this thread here keeps getting recreated every once in a while, because the one or more DL posters behind it have an agenda apart from the supposed subject matter of the thread itself... Me thinks it isn't the rest of us who A) are getting offended and B) need to deal with it.

A lot of athletes are not facially hot since that's not their job. OTOH Hwood stars are virtually never "average" in the real person sense.

IMO even the the least attractive stars do not have problems of averageness. Kellan Lutz EG is gross (facially) but not because he is too plain.

The closest thing to AWGs would be blond guys, natural blond guys are almost never hot to me. But maybe they hair is dramatic looking enough to attract other guys' attention. That still doesn't add up to average.

The other arguable AWGs would be white violent criminals under like 40. Seems like every one gets his own slobbering thread here. But even if they plain looking or ugly they're not "average." They are murderous freaks who are probably living the sad dream of the our most mentally ill posters. Hot!
