I refuse to believe that any gay man would willingly wear the haircut on the left. What is that, even? A short mullet? A "shullet"?

I got 20.

by Anonymousreply 3April 3, 2024 12:55 AM

I missed the final one about "side" - had no idea.

by Anonymousreply 4April 3, 2024 12:58 AM

I got 19 out of 20. I'm 72, overweight, and haven't had sex with another person since 2003.

So this test is hardly indicative of being a gay player.

R5 What you get wrong?

by Anonymousreply 6April 3, 2024 1:00 AM

Really? Starting out with “safe”?

A question about "side," R6.

18/20, Almost an expert. I got the SIDE question wrong and the meaning of NPNC.

by Anonymousreply 9April 3, 2024 1:07 AM

Question 2: What does "DL" stand for?

I tittered at that one.

Same, R4. I stumbled on the side question.

20/20. Way too easy. And the explanations were written by a bore.

I got a 20/20 - like R4 though, I was a bit confused about side… I always thought side meant vers. Glad to now know the true meaning.

by Anonymousreply 15April 3, 2024 1:16 AM

I have never heard the term "side" in a gay context. But that could be because all my friends are bottoms.

by Anonymousreply 16April 3, 2024 1:17 AM

Side is on Grindr as a position option.

"engaging in adult activities"?? Who the fuck wrote this? I didn't realise the young generations are such pollyanna prisspots!

0 and proud of it.

by Anonymousreply 19April 3, 2024 1:22 AM

Side is a newer term. Grindr didn't even have the option until like a year or two ago actually. Bing says it was created in 2013 by some shrink. Can't imagine an oral only lifestyle. Zzzz.

20/20, I'm 63, haven't been to a bar in 20 years and never on the apps...such a silly quiz.

But, R19, your husband got 20/20. BTW, have you talked to Ben Shapiro since he let you go?

r18, Generation Zzz is ridiculously prudish. (As are some of my fellow millennials, I might add.) The quiz reflects that sad reality.

On the upside for the queer with the hair don't, and wearing the orange pullover: he has BDF. To be precise, long bent pale veiny dick face.

[Quote]"Fishy" is a term used to describe a drag queen who looks exceptionally feminine, often indistinguishable from a cisgender woman. It's a form of high praise in the drag community.

Because women's pussies smell like fish? How misogynistic.

by Anonymousreply 31April 3, 2024 1:45 AM

R31 nobody told you that the world of Drag Queens is not for pussies?

by Anonymousreply 32April 3, 2024 1:47 AM

R18 - and it says opposite gender. It specifically means haven’t stuck your dick in a pussy.

R33, couldn’t a gay woman be gold star?

Platinum Star means you haven't shared "adult activities" with the opposite gender AND you were born by Caesarean section.

Opposite sex. It’s based on anatomy.

Another 20/20 here. Wish my vision were as good as my vocabulary! I'm 61 and haven't been to a bar in decades. I learned "fishy" a few years ago watching The Big Fat Quiz of the Year on YouTube, and "side" courtesy of a video by Michael Henry.

by Anonymousreply 44April 3, 2024 2:36 AM

20/20 and fairly R5.

by Anonymousreply 45April 3, 2024 3:23 AM

19/20. Like many others I missed the "side" question. It was somewhat awkwardly worded and I thought it was asking about a side piece. Ah well.

Some of those questions were so obvious that even boring straights would know, though.

by Anonymousreply 46April 3, 2024 3:28 AM

R10, I'd go further and say we should have been an option.

And yeah, what kind of mind thinks it is a good idea to run a quiz about the intimate details of gay life, but never use the word "sex"?

by Anonymousreply 47April 3, 2024 3:39 AM

Chicken, trade, rough trade, t room, trick. Old gay slang.

I'm surprised so many people got confused about 'side'. I'm seeing that more and more each day on forums.

by Anonymousreply 56April 3, 2024 2:09 PM

The DL absence suggests we are, in fact, not all that.

by Anonymousreply 57April 3, 2024 2:16 PM

For a quiz that pussyfooted around fucking by using 'adult activities', I'm surprised however that a whimsical reference was made to the problematic 'fishy'.

Always misogynistic, my understanding is that this is no longer considered appropriate parlance in drag culture. 'Fishy realness' was often used on earlier series of Drag Race, but I think I read somewhere that it's no longer permitted - at least in some iterations of the franchise.

by Anonymousreply 58April 3, 2024 2:41 PM

"Side" is another word for "boring".

I don't know why. "Fishy" is decorous compared to what is said in the streets. Back in my day, the girls would scream "Bitch, your pussy is on fire!!" and that was high praise.

Stop trying to make "side" happen!

by Anonymousreply 62April 3, 2024 4:21 PM

I got "side." Not everyone wants a dick in their ass or to stick their dick in an ass. I thought gay men were creative in the bedroom.

I didn't get "safe," and some of the others were fairly obvious, even if you aren't smack dab in the middle of the gay "community."

by Anonymousreply 63April 4, 2024 12:19 AM

I missed "side." But I'm also a straight woman.

I got 19 of 20 - I missed "side." I'm 50.

Some of these are just general text/app slang, not particularly gay. I feel like there's a level of even gayer gay slang.

by Anonymousreply 70April 4, 2024 3:44 PM

'side' is/was for side piece. no idea wtf this 1st grade level intimacy shit they refer to.

'safe' USED to indicate 'safe sex'. again, WTF.

19/20 - I missed "side" which is something new I learned.

Also, while watching Instagram, I learned of another. What is a blouse?? Answer - a feminine top. Thought that was cute.
