If you’re a self-described “straight acting” gay guy, does that mean you’re actively trying to seem straight?

slyfggt:

If so, what exactly do you get out of it? You’re not straight and you’re lying. Do you think that manliness is a heteronormative, butch virtue exclusive to breeders? Have you ever considered just being yourself? Does portraying a straight guy feed into some fetish for straight machismo? Do you think you’re advantaged over less “straight-acting” gay men around you because you act this way? 

I’m fascinated by the concept of a gay man having a “straight” personality. Male lesbians also fascinate me.
