Does my voice sound gay?

Or does it just sound English?

by Anonymousreply 215June 28, 2022 8:36 AM

I don't think any of the options encompasses my take on it: English of indeterminate sexuality.

by Anonymousreply 1June 21, 2022 12:55 PM

I agree with R1. Perhaps potentially gay, but not definitively gay, mainly because the Englishness precludes a conclusive determination.

OP, I am highly sensitive to sound, and I can tell a lot about you just from that small clip - but I won't. Thoughtful sensitivity, intelligence, agreeable manner. Yours is a wonderful sounding voice which anyone would be privileged to hear every day. It does not denote that distinctive "Yaas, Queen!" indisputable gay identifier, but it also would not elict some huge surprise to find that it belonged to a gay male. Whatever the case, your voice is sincerely and genuinely your own - I can hear it in your voice!

It's no different to the scum who call AIDS the "gay man's disease". Stop the homophobic and unintelligent bullshit!

r59 Except it does describe some of the problems that have been adapted internationally by flamers... with valley speak. like the excessive use of um, oh, so, like... and discussing the issues of cadence.

Comparatively, we would look at uk gay pop culture.. I'd suggest media between the 70s and 90s, where we have more exaggerated represention...

problem, of course, is the uk has many, many, many english dialects, accents and instead we're usually limited to soho faggotry. . . with a spritz of American influences

or the entertainment and media focuses more on class distinction.. usually the lowest of low and often with a bit of a northern ireland flavor that leans on the harsh and brassy... to which the northern irish accent tends to sound like trying to speak with a cock in your mouth... as so many vowels get shortened in words vs where in gay speak they're extended and sound a little retarded.

then with subcults like trackies, it reminds me more of the stereotype of french (blame the west asians) with harsher starting consonants.. to which like hor d'oeuvres is her durr vs the others that seem to prefer whore to dropping the h.

Gay Brit, 2 strikes.

To be fair, most Brits sound kind of gay the more proper they try to speak. But you sound naturally gay on top of gay Brit.

Americans incorrectly see manners and being very refined in men as a gay trait. Because straight men are rude sloppy pigs. Ergo, Brits who come across as proper start off with this assumption. I have even heard straight American woman say that British men all sound gay.

But like I said, I can detect a little bit of gayness even if the Brit thing was removed.

R147 sounds like he has a slight Irish brogue. I also like the raspy undercurrent. Very sexy.

R147 you have a very sexy accent indeed, I wouldn't say it's a particularly 'gay' voice either.

^ Thank you for the various compliments. I've always hated my voice to be quite honest; I think that that's common for gay men as some of us are very invested, when young, in going undetected. And, yes, I am Irish!

I have a crush on UKGuy's voice too, R127 (and also on OP). Two very different types, but both very pleasant.

It's been nice being able to hear people's voices here. Like getting a message on your answering machine. Something closer to real, human interaction. Weird, but nice.

Well, thank you for that. I didn't have a great day and this thread definitely improved it. I won't use it because English is not my first language and speaking is very difficult for me (and I have a terrible voice), but it's a very good idea.

Posh is such an odd concept for Americans. We don't really have an equivalent to that. To us that kind of sound coming from a man sounds fake and pretentious. That's why it probably sounds gay to us because we associate men who are very refined to the point they have altered their accent as something only gay men seem to like doing.

Southern accent is not the American version of Posh. It's mostly associated with older generations and traditions of slavery. So it can instantly send the message of being very ignorant or poorly educated or even racist. It's not an accent anyone outside the south would want to imitate.

Probably the only accent Americans have of a Posh version is a fictional character on TV. Thurston Howell the Third, from Gilligan's island. And that was a sitcom.
