Was not sure if you had been around or seen enough "God hates Homosexual" types to make you think that basically any church goer was insane. LOL

I'm straight, yet I have a LOT of shoes (well, for a stereotypical male at least I'm sure)! I have 8 pair in the room I'm in now, and at least 4 pair in another room.


One of the many things I hated about my (minister) father: he said he 'liked" homosexuals but "didn't approve of their behaviours" yet....
--- he'd constantly watch lesbian porn (he really, REALLY liked it... it'd be watching it while having the bible in his lap so he could pretend he was looking up things--he found porn sites with names I would fear to enter).
--- he loved Elton John--because he was obviously straight and didn't flaunt homosexuality (yet KD lang was shoving it in your face, as was Ellen Degeneres)
and a number of other things, but that kind of illustrates it.

But can you tell me if these 3 inch pumps go with this D&G bag and sunglasses?

Kingschosen....Wow.

A man's greatest pitfall is none other than himself. For only he can dig himself a hole he cannot get out of.

RE: Your experiences with homophobes-
I personally think that having a sense of style has nothing to do with sexuality. There are plenty of both gay and straight dudes who couldn't put together an outfit to save their lives. Likewise there are plenty of both gay and straight dudes who could tell you whether or not your shoes match your outfit and which accessories work better.

If there is a statistical trend showing that gay men are more likely to be willing to shop or show an interest in fashion, then maybe it's because they don't care about being labeled as "gay" according to the same stereotype that suggests it's something only women and gay men do. Undecided

Agree. Marriage is a "sacrament", (historically)..the churches get to do whatever the hell they want . Civil Unions, on the other hand, should be for and about anyone who wants to engage in one. Marriage is on the wane, statistically. There are many other arrangements for and about conceiving, and raising children, that seem to work just as well.

As for the stereotype .. it's just a matter of what you're exposed to. My neighbor buddy is gay, and the Quarterback of a Big 10 team, and his BF is a Left Winger for a Big 10 Hockey team. The screamers get the press .. it's all bullshit.

Well I would say depends on the colors and style, size of items, head shape, hair color and length, what clothing would go with it, time of season, general attitude.... but when I searched the bags they appear disgusting so "probably not" (lol) and maybe I went way to much in detail...

Seriously though, normally when people want colors or advice on some things relating to fashion/redecorating they come to me for some reason.... I swear, people find out you love theatre and musicals.... Of course one of my lesbian friends refuses to believe I am straight, she has told me she will only accept that I'm bi because she "just knows"--some parents of women I know swore I was gay, one of the daughters said "no, he's straight, trust me" which I found almost odd considering I had never hit on her. I just apparently have this weird thing for shoes....

Well said.
Makes me think of an instance that my sister in law had. She ended up calling the school her daughter attends because they told her daughter that she could not like blue as her favorite color because it was quote on quote 'A boy's color.'
It is no wonder that stereotypes are so easily and readily fallen into. Society has already gender labled our colors. Not to mention much of what we say or do. Hard not to get loss in the mess.
