No, straight guys sit around and answer polls about whether something is a "gay" type activity or not.

And what's the point of this?

oh you're from texas. My bad. I guess it matters where you come from.

The point of that is to make the funny. I couldn't care less what his sexual preference is, I just think his reasoning for ordering a womans shirt and wearing it with a scarf is funny.

Sorry if you found any of my jokes offensive, but I didn't start the thread and I'll try to remember to be more sensitive to your feelings next time. Wait, no I won't.

Good. Since I guess you're all about reinforcing stereotypes, you're doing a perfectly good job of it for yourself.

And I don't think telling someone they're gay is funny.

Are scarves on men gay? No (unless they are pink and have feathers)

Do I wear one? nope

I'm perplexed about this whole notion of being "gay" because you're wearing something.

Can someone please explain this????????????

It seems as though people are reverting to fifth grade. Like when I was a kid and someone did or said something stupid, then I called them gay or a faggot.


Now those assless chaps that Prince wore were pretty gay.

Yes, but Prince can do what ever he wants and will still be badass.

Scarves on Men..... only if your a WWI or WWII fighter pilot - scarves served a purpose for them...

how about using clothing accessoreis for what they were intended and not as a fashion statement?

wear a scarf to keep your neck and face from the cold and realize it has a purpose for you to look semi-ridiculous in other people's eyes - enough with image-builders and keepers...wearing one because it accessorizes your coat and whatever you're sporting underneath = [email protected] has a closet full of them to make sure it matches any suit/coat

I have been assumed to be gay while wearing the following:
Levi's 501s
cut-off jean shorts
standing in the checkout line at Banana Republic

Scarves get Mike's seal of approval, and that is enough for me. (small pic)
