What Guys Said 7
Many guys are petrified of being gay, or having other guys think they are and giving them a hard time about it. I think it's about the closest male equivalent to bitchy behaviour and slut shaming among girls.
This is why stuff like:
"I'm not gay, but..."
"Not that there's anything wrong with it"
Society has made people obsessed with finding latent or suppressed gayness where it doesn't exist, and it's negatively affected men. This is a great example of it. Consider also the bromance concept, or the fact that men who have a close friendship with another guy are secretly gay for each other and in frustrated denial.1
Guys are taught to be tough and not express their emotions cuz thats a sign of weakness. Also its a competitions between makes so they can't expose their soft spot unles they know eachother well. They gotta act like they look tough all the time.. guys are embarrassed and ashamed to be frown upon if they compliment another dood. The word "Gay" for guy is a really powerful word.1

I'm not afraid to compliment my guy friends and i always do it. I'm just a straight confident guy who's never afraid to speak his mind no matter what. I never get a bad reaction. They always feel flattered and thank me.1
I always thought girls complimenting each other to be complete BS guys don't do BS for the most part that's why you don't see them complimenting each other0
It's all double standards sadly0
An we all just be slightly gay and get along0

It's not gay, but I don't see them doing it as often.
Sometimes I see my male relatives complimenting each other and making jokes. It's funny and cute.1
I don't think that's true.0
