Gay test

(Not about language.)

Via George “It’s OK to be Takei” Takei on Facebook, this sexuality test (meant for men only):

Comments were all over the map, picking out almost every detail of the photo, including the radiator, the soccer ball, and the lack of decoration on the wall.

Note assumption that gay men in general have fashion sense. And expectation that only gay men would notice how cute the guy is. Both are false, the latter spectacularly so: straight men notice attractiveness in other men — other men are, after all, both possible models and possible competitors — but they’d be unlikely to frame their judgments in terms of cuteness, hotness, etc.

For the record, I think he’s cute (the smile is a big thing for me) and I think the chair is regrettable. But then I’m gay.
