I wear a jock strap for one reason- It does the job better than any other type of athletic supporter. But apparently from what I hear every time they come up as a topic lately, it sounds like they are catnip for gay men.
I want to be clear that I no problem with gay men and don’t want this discussion devolving into a homophobic pissing match. My problem is with an attitude that if a man drops his gym shorts in a locker room while wearing a jock strap that he's unintentionally sending out a homosexual mating signal…
Is this really the case these days? If so I’ve been oblivious to the fact up until now. Do you avoid wearing a jock because of a perceived gay sexual connotation?
I’ll keep wearing one when I need to regardless because they work and compression shorts are uncomfortable as hell… But it does suck to see the actual purpose of a men’s product being overshadowed by a fetish attached to it.
I was in the Netherlands at the weekend and went in to a sports shop to buy a pair of gloves and they has a whole rack of jockstraps which apparently are much in demand by male cyclists there. I bought a nice red one to add to my collection of white ones! They are just called bike and seem really good quality.
There are approximately 90 - 100 replies to this thread (including mine)(LOL), but (as of this post) 2460 views. Hmmm.... I'm sure they're just interested in the discussion, and don't know that there are photos of men wearing jock straps, on one of the pages..............
By replying to your post, and your coming back to read it, we have already added 3 views, while only adding 2 posts - and that's assuming nobody else is reading new posts.
Not only won't they, they cannot. Each reply necessitates 2 views.
Vicious queens? Now did I call you an Uncle Tom?
No, Cisco, you didn't call me an Uncle Tom, but it wouldn't matter if you did because that insult only has any sting coming from another black person. Besides, I'm way too old, and and lived through too much of this bull to care what some niggahs think of me. I got over that bullshit when I was a teenager.
Besides, I didn't call you a vicious queen, I simply compared your tactics to theirs. If you want to argue, argue with what I actually wrote rather than your own assumptions. The former is far more relevant.
Jack can fight his own battles.
Yes, he can. And I am also able to disagree with your posts independent of JB.
I'm staying out of the marriage debate from now on because I can't be bothered with it, but If you think you're going to bring a fight to my feet you self-hating black man? Think again.
Apparently you can be bothered with the same-sex marriage debate. Otherwise you would not have brought it up here.
I'm not looking for a fight. I haven't been in a fight in 8 years. But I do know this: you are not acquainted with me, nor do you have the professional expertise to assess my psychological state via a few posts on an Internet community. Therefore your conclusion that I am a "self-hating black man" is a poor assumption.
Besides, I didn't call you a vicious queen, I simply compared your tactics to theirs.
Please don't argue semantics with your poor attempt at insulting me, you haven't lived THAT long enough to try. You've must have gone through a lot of turmoil for your views, the same views shared by people who have such little regard for you, that I CAN assess from your bitter defensive hurt tone.
Again, your argument rests on shaky ground. You don't know anybody I know. And you certainly don't know any people who have "little regard" for me specifically. You might know people who--in general--tend to dislike blacks and/or homosexuals. But you cannot say that you know any people who dislike Milo Morris for whatever reason. To be sure, they're out there. You just don't know them.
I have found, in general, that people who complain about semantics are more caught up in their own emotional upheavals than they are interested in logical exchanges.
Well I dis-like you, so you have one who specifically dis-likes Milo Morris. You're good with turning an argument around Milo, it's an attempt of making an argument with not having an argument, I'm a 'vicious queen,' no, my 'tactics' are LIKE a vicious queen, what's the differance Milo? Other than you backtracking because you know the name calling is making you look bad. I call you on it and it's "emotional upheavals" from others who probably call you out on it like I just did. You have to excuse me, but you're kind of a drama queen.
I'm a 'vicious queen,' no, my 'tactics' are LIKE a vicious queen, what's the differance Milo?
Let me give you an example. Terrorists, insurgents, freedom-fighters, etc. are not armies. The same can be said of the farmers, merchants, laborers, etc. who fought at Lexington & Concord. Yet they sometimes use army-LIKE (military) tactics to advance their causes. So while you may or may not be a vicious queen, you used the tactics of a vicious queen in response to JB. I responded to your tactic, not to you individually.
I hope that clarifies the difference.
You have to excuse me, but you're kind of a drama queen.
That is an opinion, and therefore carries the requisite value. You're welcome to it. Keep in mind that most here will tell you that I am not a queen of any sort.
Well I dis-like you, so you have one who specifically dis-likes Milo Morris.
Yeah. I get that. And you're allowed. I'm not everyone's cup of tea. Just be a aware that neither are you everyone's cup of tea. And from what I've seen so far, I don't like you very much either. So maybe the sensible thing for us to do is to agree to stay out of each others' way. What I mean by that is to not comment on each others' posts. If we can do that, I think we can keep peace. Agree?
i thought this was a discussion about jockstraps but I'm obviously wrong and way out of my depth here!
Actually, you were right. It started out as a discussion about jockstraps.
Sadly, it was derailed.
Such is the nature of forum discussions. Some stay on topic, but many do not.
Actually it wasn't just about jockstraps. It was about the 'perceived' fetish of jockstraps to gay men, since I am a gay man, I have more say on the matter than most here.
I also noticed the pics I posted were taken down. What a bunch of insecure, whiny, crybabies with the delicate sensibilities of a 12 year old girl. It it was a gay men's forum and the topic was about bikinis with a straight man (he'd be a cool guy to be kicking it with gay men) posting girls in bikinis, the gay men would chuckle about it and think he's cute as Hell. They certainly wouldn't freak out and have the virulent reactions displayed here.
