Pretending in conversations to not really know or only have vague recollections of major unavoidable Pop Culture facts, to the point of completely derailing a basic group conversation: “What? Who? Dustin Timberbake? Who’s that? Was he a baseball player? Oh yeah, maybe... he was like in some goofy band or something. Nickelback Boys or something right? ... Oh yeah In Sink... I might have heard the name, but I don’t really remember him or them.”
Or facts about anything feminine: “What’s that crap they put on their eye when they take forever to get ready?”

Unless I'm misreading this post... are coffee shops defined as "more feminine" by straight men? By others?
I've been gay for so long that I don't even understand these distinctions. Have retail operations always been gendered?

R13, I cracking up, because I never considered that. A former coworker good friend of mine and I were working on a big project together and I just asked him if he wanted to get out of the office and grab some lunch. He was like, "let me see if Dan want's to join us"... I'm openly gay, but he genuinely had no idea I was until it came up in conversation once a long time later. He's not a homophobe at all, it was just funny because I never picked up on why he did that at the time. It could have also been due to office gossiping.

Pretend they hate any “chick flicks”, feminine TV shows, all songs by attractive males or any female singers, but they’ll call out the “hot” girl actresses & singers. They maintain a very narrow catalog of acceptable music or movies to like, usually almost all rap is okay and movies where stuff pointlessly blows up. Usually with these types after a few cocktails the wife will begin to make fun of their shared interest in watching Real Housewives & HGTV, at which point the guy will become insecure and claim she “forces” him to watch it. What a sad existence.

Just a tale about a movie theater: One freezing night in February I took my son and my daughter's friend (daughter had a phobia of movies then and wouldn't come with us) Raquel to the world's worst movie, Early Man. It was a claymation flick and looked funny from the previews, but it was terrible. Anyway, there were only one or two other people in the theater. The kids were seated to my right, and this dude sat directly to my left. I believe he had sandals or crocs on. I was eating caramels (the ones with the white sugary stuff inside), which can be kind of loud (the wrappers). He was huffing and puffing because of my noise, and I believe his arm touched my purse strap. I was no hot babe but maybe 45 and 20 pounds lighter. If he had sat next to the kids I would have moved. I don't know why I didn't. I didn't know what to do. My husband said maybe he was a freak who always needs to be in a certain seat (we were in the middle of the theater, 'cause why not?). Raquel's grandfather said I should have changed seats.

The first time I went to a movie with this (then new) straight friend, he actually tried to leave a seat between us in the theater. I quietly said I was leaving if he did that, because clearly he was too embarrassed to be seated next to me. He explained that "oh no, of course that wasn't it - just force of habit." I never hung out with him one-on-one again after that - what a stupid, homophobic move. It's too bad that this shit is ingrained in their heads throughout childhood/teens/adulthood.

Get girlfriends. I have known many different types of straight men before, but they all get a girlfriend the minute a hint of gay comes their way. Odd to think this but : straight men are actually very vulnerable when they are alone. They need something to hide themselves in: frats and a girlfriend. They don't enjoy their own company.
Go to strip bars. I am sorry but if your dick is hard in a room full of other men- that's pretty damn gay.

Sorry - I call overthinking & overanalyzing on many of these posts. I always leave an empty seat between myself & friends (straight or gay) at a movie if it’s not crowded— it’s more comfortable; you’re not going to be taking during the movie; and unless your want to hold hands what’s the point? Several of the others are not done by straight guys “not to appear gay” but because that’s just how straight guys act. They really are different than most of us — case in point they usually don’t overthink ANYTHING, and the types of things gays often obsess over never even cross their minds. Both these stereotypical straight guy traits cause endless amounts of grief between them and the women in their lives.

These are all things CLOSETED men do.
Actual straight guys don't really think about whether anyone thinks they're gay because no one ever does. It's a non issue.
Thus the not sharing a booth thing is so odd and would be a huge red flag, as in "so do people often think you're gay? And why?"
And ditto on skipping a seat in movie theaters--it gives you room to spread out, so many theaters, especially older ones are so cramped. I do that with female friends as well as male if the theater is relatively empty.

The only guy who ever did this to me - leave a spot open in between at a movie - was a closeted possibly bi, homosexual. It was 1998 and it was a Nicholas Cage Meg Ryan (?) romantic drama. I saw Titanic with a male straight friend with no spot in between. It's not more comfortable, it's weird. I haven't been in a movie theater in 9 years though. Fuck that shit. I did go to a fancy one with beer and waiters and food a few years ago but it was stupid.

So me and friends don't sit in the back row and assume dude can't just keep pissing on people's heads. But yeah, we're in there and hear screaming, and people running, and lights on and police. We didn't get pissed on. I never went back to a dollar theater again.
Also had a guy next to us keep spitting huge globs of spit on the floor like right next to us. We got up and moved, and men were EXPECTED to defend honor and start fistfighting cholo gangmembers. Huge Drama. Movie theaters are over. Have been for 15 years. Society is too gross and mentally ill.

R51 Tommy has admitted to m/m experimentation in youth—including head and sucking another guy’s feet—because he was curious, sexually bored (after that much skanky groupie action, who wouldn’t be), and wasted.
To my casual-Crüehead knowledge, he’s never definitively said that he isn’t bi or that gay sex disgusts him; only that he enjoys sexual relations with women more than with men, and that he’s not had the pleasure of anal with a man before.
Given that both one of his bandmates and one of his sons seem to be gay/bi, he’d be an even bigger hypocrite and a piece of shit to say anything too homophobic publically.

I agree with R100. Straight men rarely give a damn or a thought about being gay, unless being gay is the point. But there is a great deal of “ Lord of the Flies” behavior that suggest they think a great deal about status. I have been among straight guys, married ones, that will do or say stupid stuff with their buddies because that’s what’s expected by the group. Straight men are far more pulled by the tide of other straight men. Being gay isn’t in that obit.

R115 female homosocial interaction works differently to male homosocial interaction, due to the commodification and objectification of women (the root of misogynistic homophobia)—more at 11.
Anecdotally, I’ve seen guys introduce friends to other friends by bigging up their mate’s physical strength/sporting ability, prowess at something, wealth, status, or another marker of social approval. It’s the same social ritual, only it doesn’t often involve the explicit vocal appraisal looks, because of the aforementioned commodification/objectification.
Yes, pretty or handsome men can have things easier and do gain subtle access to higher echelons thanks to the begrudging admiring acceptance of other men, but ultimately mens’ social value and success level isn’t nearly so subject to how they look as womens’, end of.

R152 angry Bull, what you don’t get is what’s at the core of it is reproductive competition for PUSSY! Women are not infallible and need to take accountability in civilized society for what they’re requiring be brought to the table. Watch any fucking National Geographic documentary and you’ll learn that. You ever see the males birds or lions that do the behavior that the FEMALES like in order win access to the glorious vagina? The females set the standard of behavior, the females are the reason the males act like beasts or gentlemen, take responsibility. If women told men be kind and respectful to everyone, including your local homosexuals, or no pussy for you then it would change things drastically. Women control the narrative of society, even though the Twitter crowd would try to have you believe they’re all helpless yet empowered victims to evil men. I hold women to a higher standard because I believe they’re higher thinkers than the average straight male, who tends towards animalistic behavior. Women need to train their men better, but they like the brutish behavior. You want to go around and pretend to be a higher, civilized species to be vaunted, then act like it.

Analogous: The reason pork products are so popular in Spain is because after the Reconquista, all of the secret Jews and Muslims were anxious to prove that they were not really secret Jews and Muslims and thus ate pork in public because it was forbidden by both religions. In England, however, no one was suspected of being a secret Jew, so pork played less of a role in the local cuisine.

I've been a loner for quite some time now but used to be around het guys a lot earlier. Some were dear friends and some just school and work buddies. There are so many different kinds of straight men that most posts in this thread are more or less correct since they apply to some of them.
There seems to be one universal thing, though, and that's being aware of societal norms and the pecking order in any group or work place. We as human beings tend to learn pretty early on how interaction among groups of people work. I'm actually not surprised at all that some het guys would be afraid of being seen as gay, and thus refuse to go out only with one guy. It's not homophobic per se but just being aware of your own image and your standing in the group and the society overall. You see, many straight guys are sticklers for rules and feel safer when they're followed. Hell, *I* feel safer when people follow rules. You just have to be aware what rules to bend to be able to live comfortably.
Many straight guys, no matter the age, are lost little boys when taken out of their comfort zone, but then again that applies to gay and bi men as well. People follow the rules to fit in. There are only so many trailblazers to break the rules.
Pecking order among gay men can be even more brutal since it's basically all about the looks. Even if you're loaded but you're ugly you get pitied for being ugly. Since male looks don't matter that much to straight men it's not that straightforward with them but there are definitely other ways to measure your standing. And yes, most het guys are totally aware of what being handsome means. We're hardwired to detect symmetry and beauty.
Now, with aspies things are different since they fail to read and understand many signs that we take for granted.

A good friend from work invited me over to his house. He's married and he and his wife were throwing a little cocktail party for them and their friends. Aside from observing the tedium of married suburban life, it was interesting to see how all the wives self-segregate into the kitchen to talk and all the husbands stay in the living room. I didn't know any of these guys aside from my friend, and at the time, I would say most of them were in their early thirties/late twenties and very frat-bro.
What was odd was the homoerotic undertones of how the husbands would physically touch each other's asses and crotches. From my gay eyes, it was weird especially since the wives are just cackling away 30 feet from us in the kitchen.

My future BIL is a Turk from Cairo and is a personal trainer. He also loves designer clothes, lives in the gym, and has a curious enjoyment of soapy dramas and design shows meant for a female audience. We joke in our house that my sister is the tough butch one in their relationship. Honestly I always keep a close suspicious eye on him (not sexually, I’m lesbian).

R223 when we first met him, the thought that he could just be dodging military conscription (it’s mandatory in Egypt) had crossed our minds. We even asked him about it, and he said that while he wasn’t keen to do it, if his country called on him then he’d go. He’s now passed the age for conscription and is still with my sister, even having introduced her to his parents (who horribly and vocally disapprove of him committing to a white pagan Jezebel, btw).
He currently works here in the U.K. on a semi-permanent VISA (as an engineer), and my sister started dating him years before Brexit, so it doesn’t seem likely he’d need such an elaborate facade just to stay in the West. The U.K. government pathetically fall all over themselves to bring in quotas of educated Arabs, you know how it is.

^^^forgot to mention that personal training is his side-hustle, and that he’s from a wealthy industrialist family. He also lived, worked and studied in France for a couple of years before coming to England, and became trilingual there. Rich well-educated Arabs who speak many languages have plenty of options if they want to stay in the West, so unless he really wanted a middle-class white English beard for some specific reason I don’t see that he needs my sister as a crutch. People of his ethnic and class/wealth background can tend to Ben effeminate or flamboyant or looks-obsessed without being gay, it’s a whole thing.
That said, I do think he’s bicurious or bisexual, based on probing but not offensively gross questions he’s asked me about being gay several times. And his interest in competitive bodybuilding....

Straight men "jokingly" call their straight buddies gay or make gay jokes , even though they're all straight, because in their minds the worst "joke" is too be gay or feminine
I used to work for a construction company and we had to help remodel a Walmart overnight and two of the men that worked construction with me were really good friends, and one walked by a woman's purse that was pink with frills on it and he jokingly said to his buddy, "Oh you left your purse out here" amd his buddy said back, "Fuck you, like I fucked your girl last night"
They both had a good laugh and thought it was hilarious

A lot of this is right out the window in southern Europe. In Italy, young straight days want to look good and go all out with clothes, hair, accessories and keeping slim. The clothes are very fitted, a lot of pale pastel colours on shirts and scarves (they wear scarves from September to June), they buy and use a lot of products. You often see two guys out together.
Because of the repressive culture, a lot of older gay or bi men marry women and have families. There are few outward signs they are gay, but they are always on the prowl for a hookup.

R207 No and no, although I was crushing hard on my friend ( the husband who invited me) at the time. We had are own little sweet homo moments though!
Not sure if he thought I was gay bc I never spoke about dating women to him, but I was pretty heavy-handed in my flirting and being physical with him. He was a man who I think enjoyed the attention bc he was a bit narcissistic. I thought he was attractive but other gay guys I asked didn't really see it. Remembering back, we just had good chemistry and enjoyed hanging out. At work, he would just stop by my desk to talk to me plenty of times. When we would go out for lunch just the two of us, he would tell me things he said he never really shared with anyone but his wife, and all I could think was I wanted to bang him.

R246 not to speak ill of your mate, but I agree with you that his behaviour does seem self-centred to the point of mild narcissism, and he did seem to be using you for an ego-boost and some easy attention. I’ve had ‘friends’ in the past who kept me around for convenient affirmational attention, and it hurt to find out that they didn’t care about me and weren’t interested in me beyond what I could do for their self-worth.
So I hope it isn’t/wasn’t like that between you and your friend. You come across as a nice decent sort, so I hope you have plenty of other friends who don’t treat you that way.

R247 No I never felt like he was using me. Like all people, he had his own flaws, and there was a bit of narcissism, but that wasn't ALL there was to him. He definitely had done generous things for me. And despite any narcissism he may have had, I would call him out on it. I always had some witty or sardonic remark to throw back at him, which he seemed to enjoy. Probably because his entire social circle of "jock-bros" didn't talk that way to him and his wife, while nice, was far too dull for it.

R271, good example. I work in academia and have noticed that male professors go out of their way on the first day of class to talk about being "happily married to my wife and kids." I have decided that they do this not to avoid being mistaken as gay, but rather to make it clear to students that they are not available, and that the "student crushing on the professor" fantasies should not be indulged. (Speaking as both a student and a professor, I can tell you that these silly crushes happen quite often.)

Also, don’t hang about a drunk Brit if his sports team have lost. Not worth the aggro, and the offer of a blowie won’t make them feel better (they might even take it badly).

This sounds more like social class differences than anything.
What most of you are describing is the behavior of barely literate blue collar workers in Darkest Flyoverstan.
Most of the straight white collar guys I know, even the ones in their 50s and 60s, don't act like this.
Take salads, for instance.
That may have been a thing in 1987 (and for many DLers in fact, it still is 1987)
But they all eat salad now and no one would think "Oh, they'll think I'm gay if I order this!"

I think it more than anything it makes me sad when you realize that straight friends you’ve known for years don’t really trust you—or care more about what non-friends or strangers might think. I know it’s social conditioning, and I try not to take it personally, but it still stings that they act like you’ll turn into the gay Mr Hyde if they let their guard down. And I agree that girlfriends often perpetuate this doubt, any perpetrate their own homophobia by making their man think you must have ulterior motives.

Anyone who cares more about what the outside world thinks, or would date a girl who reinforces their deep fears, is even worth a second glance. Make friends who are loyal, open minded and smart- they tend to be adults and mature. A real man knows himself- something many straight men never get.
Also stop picking male friends because you find them attractive. And men who fear you will turn them gay have already visited Oz.

A lot of the behaviors described here sound like a lot of straight men want their gay male friends to know not to try anything with them, straight women do the same with straight male friends. Let's get real here, how many gay men are "friends" with straight men simply because they are lusting after them? They don't want to be friends they want something more and they hope if they befriend them then it will give them an "in". Men of both sexual orientations aren't exactly shy when it comes to pursuing lust so maybe some of these men want to set boundaries.

R322 I live in Baltimore - home of the Ravens. I like football. Grew up watching the Colts. I am also an attorney. Many a Monday I would walk in a courthouse and there was a lead like sadness throughout because the Ravens lost ,or a place of jovial greetings if they won. That's what I would expect out of an emotional high school cheerleader- not a group of professional adults. The need to connect to a team's up and down is a form of co- dependency that is almost cult like. It shows an inability to roll with the punches. Sadly it is also the only time I see straight men show unabashed emotion freely.

He knows what the world will say about your friendship but he doesn't give a fuck. He knows at some point you might throw yourself at his head- but he will brush it aside because he knows who he is, and who you are. You are the best man at his wedding, The godfather to his kids, a babysitter, his drinking buddy, an uncle, shoulder for his wife, and a person he trust. Trustful people - gay or straight - don't have sex on the brain. That fact that you think you can blame the gay man for the insecurity of the straight guy is self hate at its best.

Watch a NATGEO doc this is all just animalistic behavior to attract mates. We don’t call them “Breeders” for nothing. The hyper masculinization in America happened in the 80s after feminism brought men insecurity, as women became ball-busting corporate cunts, then AIDS hit and being overly fit & muscular became a way for gay men to show the world they were “neg” and straight men tried to show they weren’t “no fag” by being disgusting and free of creativity, because women have an internal need to continue the species and catching a deadly disease activates their alerts. Men just like to cum. I think women are the main cause of homophobia, the facade of civilized culture is just that.
