From the Huffington Post Article
This really grinds my gears. As long as this kind of thinking persists, the world will forever define the "gay man" with it's skewed and stereotyped view. This is an enforcer of self hatred, and fuel for the community ignorant of what it really means to be a part of the LGBT community.
A recent article on Slate.com about a Reddit subgroup known as "Gaybros" inspired the above conversation on HuffPost Live.
"A gay man who acts masculine and is interested in guy stuff like sports, video games, military issues, grilling, knives, gear, working out, gadgets, tech, etc…"
"Young masculine homosexual males who exhibit no effeminate characteristics or interests and make a point of going on about how 'normal' they are. Previously they would have refered to themselves as straight acting but that's so 2005. Gaybros have no gay friends because they can't relate to other gay people. This is something else they insist on telling everyone."
