It may be a joke, but I watched the honest trailer of 300 and the narrator lists a bunch of homoerotic undertones.
One of them is men wearing thongs. Why is that gay?

A lot of people see wearing thongs as a feminine trait, and a lot of people associate gay males with a higher level of femininity.
In reality, a man who wears a "thong" is no more gay than anyone else. I mean, me personally, I'd NEVER wear one (seems uncomfortable and it's just not ME at all), but I couldn't care less if other dudes wanted to go for it. The ladies, however, might not love it.1
