My misunderstanding#0
Posted: 6/3/04 at 1:53am
At rehearsal tonight for a play I'm working on, I was having a discussion with one of the actors. He's 15, about 5'1", a dancer, and he sets off my gay-dar daily (although, to my knowledge, he's still closeted).

He was having a discussion with someone else, and I overheard him say, "Oh yeah. I shop in the BOYS department".

I was surprised later (and a little embarrassed, due to the way this all occurred) when I learned that he was discussing how hard it was to find pants his size, and it had nothing to do with his sexuality.

But come on. If someone said they shopped in the boys department, what would YOU think?

I'd think they were hoping to see Michael Jackson in person.
PEACE.

Fully grown men that do their clothes shopping at Gymboree scare me.

Ummm, if he is 15 he is still a boy.

pardon my straight ignorance on this subject but can women have gaydar? wouldn't it technically be "women's intuition?"

Damn. I don't get gay-dar? Man, this just isn't my day. Oh well, I'll settle for this "women's intuition" crap. But I'm not happy about it.

"Gaydar" is just as much crap as "women's intuition." There is no such thing. People have images in their brains of traits that they associate with being gay and when they encounter those traits in others, their "gaydar" goes off.

As for men cruising men, the thing that is often attributed to "gaydar" with which two strangers find themselves meeting in a croweded place and it turns out they'rer both gay, is just the fact that gay men will hold the gaze of another man while straight men will look away quickly.

That's ALL it is.

I was being serious! LOL


In theatre, especially when it comes to teenaged boys, a man is gay until proven straight.

This one in particular. He's getting awfully touchy-feely with another cast member (who happens to be an outspoken gay man).

Why are so obsessed with this, Flowery? A teensy-weensy bit of advice: One great way to alienate your gay friends -- or those coming out -- is to get all up in their business and sexlives. It makes others wonder about why you're so curious and not on your own personal prowl.

Namo - I'm not sure I totally agree on the gaydar subject. Maybe I'm calling it the wrong thing, but the way I see it, I can usually tell by certain facial features if a man is gay, which makes me think all the more certainly that it truly is genetic (hell, what am I talking about? My father was gay and so am I - thats proof enough right there!).
"I don't really get the ending,all i can go with is when after several months,Judith saw Pat sang,and later she kissed him on the toilet,after that the story back to where Pat went down from the stage after he'd sung,and he went to the italian lady.I just don't get it,what Judith exatcly meant when he kissed Pat that she had seen,and did Pat end up together with The Italian Lady?Please help me,thank u very much!" Quote from someone on IMDB in reference to a movie he/she didn't understand. Such grammar!

I'm not obsessed, Zola, it just seems that way when reading this thread and a couple of my recent posts. I would never get up in anyone's business about their sexuality. I promise.

But now I'm off to rehearsal. Ciao.

One more thing, I really resent the term "fag hag" or the shortened form "hag" unless it refers to Witchipoo on H R Puffenstuff.

Son of a gunn = nice try, but nothing that specific - I can't even put my finger on it (ha ha)...its just a facial shape I suppose - but yeah, those plucked eyebrows certainly make me raise mine!LOL....
