Gaydar

What exactly is a “gaydar” you might ask. Well, up until a few days ago, I’ve never even heard of the word. It goes to show how creative some people are when it comes to mixing up words together to form a new one. I laugh every time I hear this word now. It’s a temporary humour that will go away with time.

I was up at Limeridge the other day, shopping and hanging out at Bubble Tease. I was waiting around for Jenn to close up shop when I saw this girl walk into the shoe store next door. She had a very nice body and was strutting around like she knew it. She was swearing some very tight clothing too. As she walked into the store she walked by a group of guys. Like most guys, we all tend to stare and focus our eyes on certain parts of the female body. This girl was turning heads everywhere she went.

Shortly after entering the store, she came back out and met with another girl. This girl seemed like the total opposite. She was a bit shorter and was wearing jeans and a leather jacket. Her hair was dyed pink and only the top part of her head had hair on it. The read of her head was shaved.

When I saw the two of them together, my gaydar was triggered. A gaydar, if you haven’t figured it out by now, is a gay radar. It’s an ability to determine whether another person is gay or not. Of course, there are more direct and accurate ways of finding out the truth but it’s no fun going that route.

Jenn: What are you staring at?
Me: Lesbians.
Jenn: Where?
Me: Right next door.
Jenn: I want to see.
Me: It’s too late now. They’ve gone into the store.
Jenn: How do you know they’re lesbians?
Me: I can detect this kind of stuff.
Jenn: So you’ve got a gaydar?
Me: Ha ha ha! I’ve never heard of that before but yes.

As we were talking, the lesbians come out of the store and walked pass Bubble Tease. I made eye contact with Jenn and signaled to her that the lesbians are walking right behind me.

Jenn: Stop staring! They’re not lesbians.
Me: Yeah, they are!
Jenn: No. They’re not even holding hands.
Me: Well, they are now. Ha ha ha!

I can’t say that the gaydar works 100% of the time. It could be pure luck that I’m guessing that they’re lesbians and turn out to be right. It’s not like it’s hard to detect. Most of them are open about it but not a lot are willing to come out to admit it yet.

It’s the 21st century and this whole gay thing is pretty much the norm. I’m not sure why anyone has anything against gay people. They’re just regular people who happen to like members of the same gender. I don’t see what wrong with that. I’m not even sure exactly why being gay is illegal in some places. If people wants to be gay, let them be gay. If that’s what makes them happy, so be it. Who are we to interfere in their lives. It’s not like it’s lethal or anything.

Don’t ask me how I found this video on YouTube, I just did. I didn’t do a search on gay people. I just saw it on a page and the title was funny. “What What (In the Butt)” Ha ha ha!
