We built up 32, Facebook fans before launch. Then, there were a few articles, like one in Queerty, which made the app into a place for straight men looking for other straight men to get oral sex in secret. There you go then. Most of the people I chatted to on there said that they identified as gay. People have called it an app for straight men because of the design, the logo, the name, the fact that interactions include 'fist-bumps'.
But maybe that kind of behaviour doesn't have to be restricted to the 'straight' male community.

After all, isn't that, in itself, just conforming to another socially-constructed idea of gender and sexuality? This app has caused loads of media speculation because, in some ways, it all seems so confusing. People have taken it as an app for confused people. Maybe we're just thinking about it too much though. Maybe it's all pretty straightforward.
Is BRO a dating app for straight men to meet straight men?
Like BRO's mission statement puts it, a place, "for men that are interested in meeting other men… as simple as that". Like I'm doing it all in secret. That's not because I'm a homophobe who doesn't want to be tarnished with homosexuality. It's because I'm in a happy relationship and I wouldn't want the missus or her mates catching me on there I think that's all it is, anyway.

The underlying message is that sexual intercourse with complete strangers is a normal activity and effeminacy is a natural state of being for gay men. Both are false. Point taken, but then why do you keep coming on here if you dislike Queerty so much? If you dislike what you see Queerty representing, why keep showing up to post? Why come here?
Because this site is, sadly, visited by LGB people and has an influence in establishing what is normal and acceptable. It spreads misinformation and toxic values to LGB people, and in particular LGB youth, some of whom are influenced by it and thus harmed.
If you actually want to generate discussion you really need a different approach. Among other things, this gives us a chance to interrogate our own biases: Are we really not attracted to something or someone, or do we have other things going on? So let me get this clear… Effeminate gay men are pissed because the masculine men they are attracted to are attracted to other masculine men, and the effeminate men are hurt that they attempt to act masculine to attract masculine men and still get rejected….
Seems normal. I have no remorse for effeminate men. Drag queens and effeminism are not the symbols of gay men, regardless of what many believe. And many effeminate men ruin gay clubs by trying to run a hierarchy, and the masculine gays are at the bottom of the pyramid, yet are also their targets.
