Henry here, answering your questions only a guy can answer. Today’s question got me angry a little. We’ll get to that in a moment. Anyhow, lfdk;sajf; writes: how do i know if a guy is gay?
And here’s the part that made me sad, a user’s response from Miah Stone, who says:
-The guy wears tight clothes
-Always stares at other guys’ ‘private’ parts
-Clothes are a bit feminine
-Says things like ‘You go, girlfriend!’
Miah, my friend, this could not be further from the truth. Instead, this is a stereotype of gay men, and not how you can tell one for sure. In fact, Henry has a few pals who are gay guys and gals alike, and I can guarantee you that there’s no defining characteristic. Just how straight people come in different shapes, sizes, colors, personalities, religions, and well, everything else, gay guys and gURLs do too!
When you really think about it, being gay is just a preference, just how Henry prefers his pizza topped with ham, pineapple, and a side of hot sauce. You might like yours with pepperoni, but it doesn’t really define who we are.
So for every Glee-loving fashionista gay out there, remember that somewhere, there’s his parkour-jumping, football obsessed counterpart — which if you ask me, is the cool thing about living in a world where everyone’s different.
Now, to answer the real question: The only way to really know if a guy is gay or straight is to ask them. It can be a touchy subject, especially if a guy is in his teen years and still trying to figure it all out. So, my best advice is not to ask. Instead, make him know you’re comfortable with the person he is, because when he’s ready enough to admit it to himself, he’ll also be able to admit it to you.
