I think the really flamboyant gays put up with allot of shit in grade school / high school and now tend to take it out on others and still carry that chip on their shoulder.

I had a pretty easy go of things, most people thought I was straight and ended up being pretty shocked when I came out. Don't think a single person I told had the 'oh, I knew all along' response. It was more of a "what?! you?" response.

ila a lot of the cattiness of gay men has to do with imaturity. For a lot of gay men there is no reason to ever grow up, ie. marriage, kids so they never really stop going out and partying and therefore don't realize how many more important things there are in life then someones appearence or the clothes they are wearing. Katty single 40 year old women are the same way hence why they are bitter and single.

that seems so fucked up, but in a way i'm not surprised.
not consciously, of course, but yes, systematic abuse will spawn a negative outlook. this outlook can be manifest in many ways though, and the specific focus on aesthetics that's already an integral part of gay male culture will make negative outlooks more likely to manifest in superficiality of tyhis sort.

The Italian health ministry wants businesses (in Italy at least) to ease up on the dress code a bit. The reasoning here is that they think that if people dress more casually (read: comfortably) they won’t need to waste as much energy to compensate for the discrepancy between formality and comfort. If you can dress for comfort then maybe you won’t need as much air conditioning for instance. This seems to make sense. They’re starting with neckties claiming that taking off neckties lowers the body temperature by two or three degrees which means theoretically you will need two or three degrees less worth of air conditioning. For some reason tie makers are being particularly petulant about it.
wearing a necktie
in the summer is stupid
it be hot out yo.

I also find that the 'gay scene' type people (ie: people who do church street 7 nights a week, and that is their entire world) tend to be very insular, and tend to just feed off of everyone else negativity. When being bitchy and catty to outsiders is the norm for them, then people start doing it because its what they are hearing, and it just increases from there.

I know a lot of straight people who aren't growing up who also aren't bitchy.

I think it's just accepted more in certain circles that include some gay men (and their hags) to be fucking cunts to everyone. zero conscience. I think some of them might think they're being ironic...like it's really just an inside joke. or maybe that's giving them too much credit.

it depends on if they are more the tie or mouse-ear type.
the ties are more uptight, always with the scathing insults while the ears just want to have fun and dance.

I can honestly say that if he wasn't Gay or if this didn't happen in a popular store in the gaybourhood, then I wouldn't have hesitated to smack the shit of him. It was because of this I didn't. I was worried that a big, straight man such as myself would be either verbally or physically laying the smackdown in a gay neighborhood. I also live a block away. It just wouldn't look good

yes, that's why it's important to hang out with different kinds of people and do different kinds of things. like sometimes i hang out with junglists and snort meth, but sometimes i like to put on my beret and go to poetry readings to drink absinthe. it's all about variety.

yeah, violence wouldn't have looked good, your only hope for a comeback was if you could think of something snappy to say.

i'm terribly amused at your capitalization of "gay"!

Yeah it makes perfect sense, but people are all "but it looks so good!" You know what else looks good? The same people lying in a ditch. It's probably more comfortable too!

i think it's more something that was initially based on "monkey see, monkey do" and has turned into a coping mechanism for their own insecurity.
