My Facebook feed blew up last week with all my gay friends linking to this article on Slate about “gaybros”.
Firstly, the definition:
Gaybros (via Urban Dictionary) – A gay man who acts masculine and is interested in guy stuff like sports, video games, military issues, grilling, knives, gear, working out, gadgets, tech, etc…
My first thought was “that’s half my gay friends.” My second thought was “he sounds hot!”
“Gaybros” started up on content aggregator Reddit, and guys who fit that definition (or think they do? Or try to?) are reportedly organizing meet-ups in various cities. The article (which some of my pals were bitching about being divisive and anti-effeminate guys and others were identifying with) has caused a lot of discussion all over the queer areas of the net.
What does your Manhunt Daily blogger think about the “gaybros” phenomenon.
I am not a “gaybro” but I would totally get with one in a naked manner. I don’t care if it’s divisive. I think dudes should form as many clubs as they want. Finding a place where you feel like you fit in is fantastic. Just don’t be a cunt about it.
I LLLOOOVVEEE butch guys. Guys who play rugby, know football stats, are dumb (yeah, I typed that), and have tribal tattoos or ones featuring the Fighting Irish leprechaun.
This “gaybros” concept (whether it’s an actual thing or just the gay media blowing things out of proportion to create “trends” to report on) is fantastic for one reason.
It groups all of these masculine dudes in one place for you to jump on. Yes, I would be a “gaybro” groupie. I might be able to recite lines from The Golden Girls on command, but it doesn’t mean that I can’t fuck you or get fucked by you with a raging ferocity. And yeah, you can bottom with a raging ferocity if you’ve got the moves.
So, keep the “gaybros” coming. I can talk cars, and make you feel like you’re the butchest bitch since Vin Diesel. If that’s what makes you more comfortable…and easier to do.
The following are what you get when you put “gaybros” in Google Images. Heh.
