OST's and OGT's

I've been meaning to create this post for a while, but I haven't gotten around to it until now. Everyone talks about these "Obviously Gay Traits" and "Obviously Straight Traits", but what it should be is "Stereotypical Straight Traits" and "Stereotypical Gay Traits" since it is clear that we are all gay in this sphere, yet we have a pretty balanced mix of "gay" and "straight" traits.

But it's fun anyway.

Stereotypically Gay:
-My voice pitches up when I get excited
-I've never been into watching or playing sports
-I sing showtunes and other songs in my car
-I can't live without frequent hugs and massages
-I am hyper sensitive. Disney movies and sappy endings make me cry, I'm easily upset by the suffering of others, etc.
-I cook, and love to teach myself to cook new things
-I have been doing my own laundry since I was in 6th grade or so
-I've never dated/kissed/made out with a woman
-I don't mind asking for directions
-I did musical theater productions in high school
-I was in choir
-I was never athletic

Stereotypically Straight
-I drive a manual transmission
-I love being outdoors, hiking, swimming and exploring
-I have mostly straight male friends my whole life (up until the last year or so
-My sense of direction is excellent
-I resent needing to ask for help
-I can open stubborn jars and bottles
-I'm not flamboyant
-I find history and politics fascinating
-I don't read fashion or gossip magazines/websites

I'm sure there's plenty more that I'm forgetting... Let me know if you can think of them


  1. gay traits you forgot... i love night clubs, and dancing. i have a fag hag. i love shopping, and fashion.

    straight traits... i love boobies (especially big ones). i don't like talking about my feelings.

  2. What? I don't love boobies! And I don't love clubs...

  3. Well... there you go, there were more SST than SGT... that means you're gay dude!

    Oh... wait, haha :)

  4. oh i thought you just were talking in general stereotypical assumptions about gay men vs. straight men not yourself...
