Have you ever been turned off because someone was “too gay”?

Some people think this is problematic but has someone being *obviously* gay ever turned you off?

I would never have been turned on in the first place if someone opens their mouth and a purse falls out. I'm gay, thus the "being into men and not women" thing.

I was set up on a date with someone once. After the date the friend who set us up asked if we would be going out again. And when I said no, he said," It's the voice isn't it?"

It was.

I haven't been turned off by a voice, but I have been turned off by the personality type who walks into any place and thinks they're the life of the party. Always loud and a bit entitled. It's like they're always drunk or on coke or something. They think they're blazingly funny and think they're on Drag Race, but they're usually either just recycling old jokes from drag queens or saying horrible things just to shock and don't have the timing of a Joan Rivers to pull it off.

I am very much attracted to dudes based on voice. No matter what a dude looks like, or how nice he is to me, I cannot be attracted to him if he sounds effeminate or nonmasculine. This is why I like to talk on the phone to prospective dates from Dating apps. Likewise, I am never attracted to guys that carry themselves in an effeminate manner.

I've dated a couple of fem guys and had no issue with that aspect of their personality. I've only ever stopped seeing someone for being "too gay" because they centered their entire existence around being gay. Some examples:

Our first date we went to a bar to watch Queer As Folk (dating myself there).

He had a bar schedule hanging in his house so he could make sure he knew which gay bars had what specials on any given night.

Super active in the drag community.

Would look at me like I was an alien if I tried to talk about something that wasn't specifically gay related.

He was a flight attendant.

If he didn't have a big dick I don't think I would have even bothered. But it was huge and I was a size queen when I was younger.

Done a LOT of theatre. Many gays (particularly the young lads) felt like it was their duty, to be "on" (as effeminate as possible) all the time. Fucking tedious, pretty annoying at times, and unnecessary as far as I was concerned, but I guess - for them? It was about establishing an identity, in a decidedly non-judgemental environment, I guess?

There are degrees of effeminacy.

1. Hinty. You can tell he's not straight but he's not blatant. Ex, Elton John. ACCEPTABLE. 2. Comfortable with his femininity. Doesn't make an effort to hide his gayness and people like him for it. Think Graham Norton. LOVELY. 3. Expansive. Dresses and walks like a power woman with flair and uses words straight men would never use, like "adorable!" David the HGTV decorator turned real estate person. I'D STILL DATE HIM. 4. Superfag. Borderline trans, wears skirts and women's purses and jewelry, make up and stilettos. Yes, you, Billy Porter.

There is no such thing as "too gay" OP. You are confusing and conflating the term "too gay" with extremely feminine gay men. Femininity and homosexuality/being gay are not linked. You are either gay or not, you are either a masculine gay man or a feminine gay man, and feminine gay men are often referred to as "too gay"; despite the fact this has NOTHING to do with being gay or homosexuality. Why are so many of you extremely low intellect not to understand that?! FFS.

Yes, in the same way that I might be put off by a straight man whose every outward expression is an ignorant and proud of it heterosexual whose talk never strays from tits and beer and NASCAR and reinforcing his sense of machismo.

Or in the same way that I might be put off by anyone who is a complete living stereotype of one sort or another: the always rushing somewhere soccer mom; the comic convention nerd who can talk of nothing else and purposely dresses and acts the part; the swaggering stock broker with the inflated sense of self importance and inferiority of all others; the academic with sup on his tie and dirty eyeglasses who can't eat or drink or see anything without presenting the cultural background fo some foodway or class signaling or some mini-lecture.

People who are too very one-dimensionally one postured thing I tend to dismiss. It's not that someone is obviously gay or obviously straight or obviously a busy mom or obviously geeky and likes fantasy entertainment that's off-putting, it's when that outer shell is so thoroughly developed that you could spend an hour with the person and never get a glimpse of anything beyond what's on the surface, no self-awareness, no reflection, no interest in engaging with anything outside a cultivated exterior image.

R46 I’m really tired of people acting like they don’t understand how the English language works. I put “too gay” in quotes specifically because it’s not a real thing. Most people understand what I mean by that phrase and they have probably used if not thought it.

I will say “too effeminate” is less exact than “too gay” because I think there’s a general stereotype that gay men are effete. Gay men know there’s a difference between being masc and a Queen and I think we’ve all known one of each. The point is they’re still gay men, some just overly emphasize the gay part.

Every time this question comes up, I think of this disco queen who lived in my building 30 years ago. He was on the first floor, so everyone could hear the shitaceous music coming out of his apartment as we entered or left the building, got our mail, waited for the elevator. He dressed in the latest gay style, which at that moment was the hiking boot / sock / short / shirt optional look. He was just trashy—especially playing his music so loud—and before a year was up, he left. One imagined he was evicted.

I don't understand men who wear makeup or who paint their nails or who want to wear dresses. I don't understand the whole "yass queen" thing or shaking your butt like a girl. It makes zero sense to me and I think it's stupid.

However, at the same time, I also have to admit that feeling that way is my own personal damage and I have no right to tell anyone else how to be gay or how they should act. Everyone needs to be gay in their own way - not my way.

I also have to admit that I'm GenX and I don't understand showy displays of any kind that bring attention to yourself - gay or otherwise. And, also, we had to walk a very fine line with our gayness when we were young in ways these Gen Z kids do not so there is a little bit of generation gap at work here.

On the flip side of that, I do love an old queen. Those boomers who went through it, survived AIDS , and live in fun apartments in the city and who have a story for everything. They're a good time and have great hearts.

R31 no, we get it.

Like I’m femme and mostly desire women, and while I adore a slightly-masc or soft-butch girl, I really can’t abide the deeply-entrenched bulldagger as a romantic interest—you know, the ones that seem like they’re transitioning, who obsessively bind and stuff, and put a fake-bass voice, and try to treat you like a stereotypical basic awful douchebag straight-man bro/fuckboi/trucker/lumberjack/whatever would, and refuse to enjoy or discuss anything remotely femme or feminine. It’s too much and totally grotesque, an embarrassing pantomime.

Not trying to offend or to alienate. Dgmw here; a little soft-butch swagger and some androgyny is great, and can be sexy on the right woman. A soupçon of masculinity, if you will. But if a girl has gone full drag-king full-time, she will have to accept that most sapphics (except the closet-case femmes, the addicts, and the lamprey princesses) will not really appreciate that, because what they’re drawn to and want is recognisable and unapologetic femininity.

Also, I understand that for a contingent elderlesbians and bi women, butchness was a shield and a defence mechanism—I wouldn’t take that away from anyone, and maybe in the same circumstances other sapphics would do the same. It’s been mercifully easier for the women 21st century.

But in the year 2021, bulldaggery and stone-butchery is not for me.

The most attractive thing in the world, at least in my eyes, falls in line with R99’s comment—someone who wholly embraces their true sex/gender and its characteristics, while being unafraid to mix it up with a few small gestures or attributes borrowed from the other side of the binary for the purposes of style. That is punk and so cool imo. This works on men or women imo—nothing cuter than a regular-looking and sounding dude with a slight touch of breedability (maybe that’s because I’m more attracted to women, though?)

Used to casually on again off again date this one guy. Great body, gigantic dick, unfortunate face, but nice guy. However he slowly got more and more gay. He went from being into games and comics to nothing but drag race and gender identity. We stopped seeing each other for a few reasons, but when I went back home and reconnected he had gone full gender cult. I gave him a pity fuck but it was horrible. About a year later he became a tranny and is dating another tranny. So I guess I dodged a bullet; although I think he was just lonely and looking to belong. Had I stayed with him he probably wouldn’t have trooned himself.

I'm the femme gay most of you refuse to date! I get interest, but usually only from guys who 'fetishize' my sort - I'm just not into that kind of role play.

Less about being overly femme and more about being too wrapped up in being gay, where that becomes their entire identity

I was wondering that, R121. I'm guessing an overtly, in-your-face kind of gay? Attention-seeking and faux dramatic, maybe. I've never equated 'faggy' with femme. I'm certainly not like the above description!

I just hate the whole you are a bigot unless you embrace everyone, including cunty queens, angry dykes, etc . There are people I like, people I respect and people I tolerate. All of these people get a basic courtesy. But no one has the obligation to love everyone—just respect everyone’s right to do their thing until it fucks up yours.

There is a vacuous queen where I work. He is always”on”, and never shuts up when people are trying to concentrate on their work. We all know in minute detail how sex-positive he is, and we are now experts on Rihanna’s fashion line. I have observed him creating a harem of some younger female colleagues and pointedly excluding others. It will end in tears. I avoid him like the plague.

by Anonymousreply 126September 30, 2021 4:56 PM

121 Fem implies someone is softer and feminine, like a femboy, or maybe a shy twink. I would never call Perez Hilton fem for example. Or that annoying non-binary red headed freak who makes those tik toks. He isn’t fem.

Faggy means someone is a shrill queen and it isn’t limited to body type.

Used to go to drag shows with a drinking buddy of mine. His roommate was a drag queen and performed at a bar in San Diego. He invited me to dinner one night with his roommate and their friends. It was awful. They don’t know when to turn off the stage act. Every other line coming from their mouths were a read or a shade. Vicious and nasty. I had to tell his friend to back off of me because he was pissed that I wasn’t a fan of Carol Channing. And he was also pissed because my friend was attracted to me and not him. I don’t think that it was romantic though-he just wanted to have my friend around as a mascot (we drifted apart because he had no real backbone). And they were worse backstage. Maybe it was just this particular group of drag queens, but it left a negative impression on me. One night I went to the show and his drag friend was doing that stupid conga song by Gloria Estefan. In the middle of the song his wig fell off. I had to leave I was laughing so hard. And that queen saw me and gave me the serious stink eye. Never went back. My friend and I would meet at happy hour and usually drift over to see the drag act. I just couldn’t anymore. I think that bitch might have ambushed me or something. “Man beaten to death by trannies; film at eleven!”.

This thread is total deluded.

Half of the posts are making fun of guys that ‘center their lives around being gay’ yet the poster is posting this on a gay board that they pay a monthly subscription to that they have specifically sought out.

The other half are posts about ‘bitchy’ gays and how awful they are. These posts are explicitly bitchy. And are being posted by gays. Le sigh.

You guys are just too fucking stupid it’s unreal.

[quote] Have you ever been turned off because someone was “too gay”?

It depends on the situation— whether I'm in bed or in a bar.

It's funny, on the discussions about being set up on dates above, I would never let a woman set me up on a date these days. Experience has shown me that women tend to set up gay guys based on "oh you're BOTH gay, you should like each other"reasons. I know I'm being stereotypical here, and I am willing to be wrong, but that's my experience. But set up by other gay men is fine, and if my family did, as retro as it sounds, I'm pretty confident they would only pick a guy who they know is right for me.

As far as the question, I don't get turned off by a guy being naturally, obviously gay at all, though my type is more everyday - out and confident, but not making gay his whole life. What does turn me off is horrible behaviour, mean and nasty under the guise of being witty (true wit is a lot rarer). If I meet gay guys and they are mean and nasty about others in my presence, I'm turned off. I don't like seeing people ostracised or made fun of in a really mean way, and I also know those guys would turn it on me behind my back in a heartbeat.

This behaviour, in my experience, does tend to align more with the feminine guys but of course it's a mistake to say all feminine guys are like this.

by Anonymousreply 143October 3, 2021 4:48 AM

R143 I think we’re conditioned to presume ‘femme’ gays will be more bitchy, then when you see it happen you affirm that belief whereas if you see it happen with a less ‘femme’ guy (just as often in my experience) you think of it as outlying.

I have to say in general though I find gay people to be more inclusive than straight people, and to have more empathy.

by Anonymousreply 144October 3, 2021 5:31 AM

Along these lines, I think there is a definite preference for many within the gay community towards masculinity. I think that this preference is sometimes mistaken for misogyny or a dislike of women or overly feminine or flamboyant men when it's really often just flat out sexual preference. Sure there is some misogyny going on occasionally, there are gay men that hate women and I'm not cool with that. However, lots of times things are misinterpreted. I can be joke about being abhored by the idea of watching straight porn and want nothing to do with discussions about maxi pads or mascara and not be a hater.

Bitchiness is the first defense against rejection. Histrionics are the first defensive measures for social anxiety flare-ups.

Once again, these are strong-willed men who resisted bullshit straightening as children. I had a lot of effeminate traits beaten out of me before I started school. I never reclaimed them and that's something I regret.

This is a good point. I've always said guys like this are always on the frontline. Certainly the ones who "pass as straight" and who join in on the mockery of gay people while they're in the closet can be really annoying, especially when they come out and then end up centre of attention, something I've seen a lot. Humans, huh?

Straight people are less jaded by years of dealing with queens living a tired cliché gay persona irl. Straights still find it entertaining, but most of us are over the gay court jester trope.

Apparently lots of people on the left were turned off by Buttigieg because he was "not gay enough." If he'd only been a bitchy queen and acted like he was on Ru Paul's Drag Race he'd probably be president now.
