There are a few guys who don't look gay with earrings, but I find most people do look gay. Two earrings always[/i[ looks gay IMO.

Your partners like it and you don't care about females?

:whistle:

Oh. And in my opinion. Mans should not have pierced ears.

That's just... not normal.

Humans should not have pierced ears, it's not normal. ;)

I personally find it quite repulsive, haven't the slightest idea why.

I think this whole survey is implicitly offensive. Portraying something as either Cool (meaning great) or Gay (meaning disgusting) is an insult to gay people. In my vocabulary, gay means the opposite, it means "great". I started out wearing an earring in my left ear, because I am a gay man, and when so many straight guys started to wear a single earring, I used to wear earrings in both ears, because I am gay. Now it's very unclear, and in any case I have taken them out, not because I have turned straight, but simply because I am too old to wear them any more. Earrings, long hair and tight jeans look fantastic on young males, and in my opinion, they would look ridiculous on me at my age. As for being gay, despite every effort to be otherwise when I was a teenager, I have remained steadfastly homosexual throughout my 56 year long life and now regard it as simply the way I am. I have never been treated adversely because of it by family, friends or colleagues, on the contrary, it is often an interesting topic of conversation. I do however object to being portrayed as a waste of space by members of communities like this, considering that I worked all my life and paid taxes that fund your education, police, defence and welfare, to say nothing of the other uses that politicians find for the money. You have never met me, you know nothing of what I have contributed to society, so don't judge me until you do.

It's gay - I personally wouldn't get one anyway. I have seen on TV that they use some kind of thing that looks sharp that they use to pierce your skin. I would pass out if that ever happened to me.

Wow, I'm actually quite surprised at the reactions :p

As others has previously mentioned, earring in right hear makes it appear that you say that you're gay. I know some men who has their left ears pierced, and they don't look gay and they're not gay. I think it mostly comes down to the person's personality more than the looks.

But IMO it looks a bit weird and especially those with both ears pierced :x Personally I wouldn't pierce it and I am not a big fan of it at all, I feel that it's out of place for men. I'm totally fine with it with females though.

I don't really care. Some of my friends have their ears pierced, mostly hoops, but diamonds are also cool with me.

I'll never do that to myself though, but if someone does it - it doesn't automatically make them gay!

I believe the saying when I was younger was: Left ear is right, right ear is wrong.

in this context, clearly "right" = straight, and "wrong" = gay,

not very nice for a teenager coming to terms with the enormous consequences of discovering to their absolute horror that they are gay, and destined to be the object of bullying, discrimination and derision for the remainder of their natural life.

This "male earring = gay" is also somehow implying that your sexuality can be switched on and off with a metal stud or hoop however when I was even younger still, any earring in a male was gay no matter whether left or right. Take it out and you're straight as a toothpick again.

Well, I was referring to "when I was younger" and for me that was about 25 years ago. ;)

If it makes any difference, by my senior year HS I have both ears pierced and wore two small hoops.

Please...everybody I know (including me) started getting our right ear pierced in the early 90's. Everybody was doing it; I just followed the fad. In the 90's, it was the Left ear that meant you were homosexual.

And why does anybody care anyway?. Too much hate, that's whats wrong with the world.

An earring on any ear on a man is copiously gay.

I think piercings are disgusting to begin with (except belly button rings on girls!).

I think piercings on men look stupid, and its nothing to do with them being gay or not.

When I was growing up it was gay to have one in your right ear. (or rather wearing one in your right ear signified that you were gay) I guess it's changed now....... *shrugs*
