I, for one, enjoy the “confusion.”
This is also probably the first article I’ve seen that uses the term “gay-vague.” As in, “That’s a gay-vague band.” Too pretty to be straight, but not effeminate enough to be gay?
Wow, somebody’s really caught up in stereotypes and assumptions.
This one’s basically addressing the mythical “gaydar” bullshit that (mostly straight) people purport to have or not-have, and that because more and more “straight” men are cleaning up and looking good and using hair products that it’s becoming tougher for people to “tell” whether they’re gay or straight (ha. Like you really could before unless the person wanted you to).
OK, mostly it’s about fashion and capitalism.
But it’s another example of the fact that when you walk outside the stereotypes, people seem to get really, really nervous.
I enjoy keeping people nervous. Maybe they’ll learn to make fewer broad assumptions based on outerwear.
You never know.
