If It Walks Like a Dyke…

posted by on October 15 at 22:43 PM

Gaydar. The 69th Sense. Enigmatic, subtle, stealthy, painfully accurate, horribly definitive, often fabulous in its implications. That spooky extra special thing that God or whoever gave homos (and other interested parties) so they could hone in on other homos. Does it really exist?

Fuck yeah, gurl.

New study suggests body movement gives clues to sexual orientation

Researchers attached motion sensors to gay and straight volunteers to see if sexual orientation can be detected by the way people walk.

Observers were only able to accurately guess the sexual orientation of men; with women, their guesses didnít exceed chance. But whatís most interesting to researchers is understanding how that snap judgment can unleash a series of stereotypes ó even from the most liberal-minded.

But of course, you already knew that, instinctively somehow, didn’t you faggot?

Of course you didn’t. Can you spot that gay sway?

I don't know about other people, but I have at least 15 distinctly different ways of walking depending upon where I'm going, how fast I want to get there, and my overall mood. And that's not counting all the different ways I walk when I'm just experimenting. Ever walk in such a way that your body does not rise and fall at each step, but maintains a constant height throughout? It's harder than it seems!

Holy shit! Did you notice the link off to the side of the article you referenced, about the five-year-old girl in Florida left for dead in "alligator alley" after her mother was assaulted?! THAT'S the story, mofo. Let's hope it ends up in "Last Days," or Hell.

My gaydar usually goes off when a guy is going down on me. That's a sure-fire giveaway.

I don't know about anyone else, but Adrian calling me "faggot" makes me feel sexy in a way I'd rather forget.

Explain the "disapproving matron" tone of voice - that's always been the dead giveaway for me.
