No, you are also drawing from you exceptionally biased beliefs and limited personal experience. I said that. Maybe if you spent more time reading and less swearing like a 12 year old who keeps losing on Xbox you wouldn't make me repeat myself so much.
PsychDave im not JUST talking about films you stupid f***.
Nemiroff you aid cell, how am i the one with the limited view when youre the silly shit that is just following the herd and im the one with unconventional ideas?
so if some have a "hint" of that dialect, while others have much more.... they no longer sound the same... even in your limited view.
You say that, but without something to back it all you have is your opinion. Considering your attitude, I doubt you have met many gay people, so the sample size by which you are judging would be very small. You are adding to that with movie and TV representations of gay people. This is fundamentally flawed. To judge gay people by the speech patterns of actors makes not sense since many actors change their accent for roles.
Even if theres the "butch guy" they usually still have a hint of that...dialect.
I've seen many gay men sound very different. everything from that annoying guy I mentioned earlier, to the perfectly normal sounding couple on modern family.
even according to traditionally stereotypes, isn't one of them supposed to be the butch gay guy? the one on top that is more masculine? like Robin Williams in the bird cage vs his partner, don't know the name who was far more flamboyant.
you know what im talking about. You literally cant not, dont play dumb
can you provide us an example of this sound?
"Always" was used in the general sense. Come on now, dont be silly. Literally almost all of them sound that way, they even sound that way before they come out of normality.
you said they "ALWAYS" sound the same... therefore everywhere I look it should make no difference?
I have no idea about your anecdotal experiences, many others have met many who don't sound like that. so even when it comes to personal experience you seem wrong.
Nemiroff, that would be stupid because you would have the option of picking ******s from loads of places. In general, almost all the fags ive seen in real life talk like that.
I have met many gay men who did not have "that weird lispy anti masculkne voice". While I don't doubt they do exist, they are generally portrayed that way in the media as a trope. It let's people immediately know them without needing to thoroughly introduce them.
name 3 gay guys that all sound that way, and then I'll try to name some gay guys who dont.
that way we will have a definitive answer.
Christian, youre clearly just uneducatef on the matter because you stoned too many of them before they could speak. Nemiroff, it is not just in TV. its in real life as well, they always have that weird lispy anti masculkne voice.
they do.... on tv. it's a shame when people can't separate entertainment from reality.
same thing goes for black people. we primarily see thugs therefore they must all be thugs. Hollywood never lies!
although I do have to say that the voice of ross mathews just makes my skin crawl. personal opinion: he's fake and playing up the gay card stereotype for the camera.
They don't. You are just imagining it.
