Gay By Association

I know I shouldn't be so quick to point a finger at people and call them gay (I got really mad at accusations like these back when I was still in denial), but on of the things I like to do when I have nothing else to do is go on facebook and try to find people I don't know and judge whether or not they are gay. One way I do this is by searching for people with common interests. A search for "Ugly Betty" or "America's Next Top Model" is sure to bring up a whole list of homos. I then go through the list and look at mutual friends. If we have two gay friends in common, they are gay. This test is true in most cases. If we have no mutual friends, I first look at their profile picture and make a snap judgment: possibly gay, or probably straight. If the answer is possibly gay, I go to their profile and look at what other TV shows they have listed (as well as music and movies).

I don't know why exactly I do this gay facebook hunt. I never contact any of them (unless I know them and haven't added them), so it's not like I'm trying to expand my gay social circle. I think I mostly do it because it gives me a sense of power to know that my gaydar is getting stronger and stronger. It's the same reason my boyfriend and I point out which guys at Wal-mart we think are gay. It feels good to know that your intuition can get you in on a stranger's secret I guess.
