What is it about supposedly "straight" guys that makes them act so unbelievably gay when they all hang out together in a group? Especially when there is at least one girl present.

I've started to notice how close guy friends act increasingly gay around each other. Whether they be wrestling (a.k.a. laying on top of each other) or feigning gay-ness by cuddling and whatnot. They try to act like they do this for the girl, but what about when they make gay jokes about themselves...when there are NO girls around. Are they all just expressing their suppressed gay tendencies? Are they really Bi but refusing to admit, or what? What is it that makes guys act so incredibly man-on-man around each other?

I don't know. I read something once which said that there are no truly 100% straight or 100% gay people, that everyone has a little bit of attraction to both sexes at the same time...just some people have it more pronounced to one gender over another. So maybe thats true and all these guys do have some type of feelings toward the same sex, but they're not that strong and society is too conservative to accept the idea that one person could both love a man and a woman interchangeably. Society (a.k.a. religion, conformity, and all that stems from it) is damaging, limiting, non-functional and keeping people from being able to experience love in a free and open manner, without any restrictions.

So maybe a lot of guys have unrealized feelings for other guys and they subconciously act on those feelings in the ways I describe before. I'm afraid we may never know, because people are too afraid to ask the question.

Let love be love. No judgement attached.
