Gay men and masculinity


There are people who think that gay men are not masculine enough. But there is a video which proves that the situation is quite opposite and gay men are even more masculine than straight men. The video, from Greg of ASAPScience, asks the question: “Are gay men more masculine than straight men?”

He states that the idea of masculinity is “about the acceptance and approval from other men. And since gay men for a variety of reasons are constantly looking for validation and approval from other men, does that mean that gay men are essentially more masculine?” Going on he adds that men with same-sex attraction are “still looking for approval from other men quite constantly and therefore by definition, gay men are hyper masculine. But gay men also have to deal with homophobia which is directly linked to gay men being more feminine.”
