I was just wondering what some of you have done to give out little hints to people that perhaps you're not straight... and I know I'm not the only person that does dumb things like that... Most people never get what I'm hinting at. I even told one person that the straightest thing about me was my hair (I have incredibly curly hair) and they didn't get it. Either that, or I do incredibly dumb things to find out if other people are gay or not... like bringing up every gay celebrity I can or just discussing equal rights and all the minorities often discluded, esp. gays.

Well, there is the whole limp-wrist rutine with a little hip thrown in for good measure. I don't consider myself homosexual, but I take every opportunity I can find to take the people around me by suprise. Heh... if I were in a manga, I'd be the guy that tends to make everyone fall on their heads with a seemingly 'innocent' remark. Since I'm normally so quiet, everyone is a little shocked when I'll make a homosexually-oriented innuendo. Usually subtle stuff. It's an interesting way to gauge a person's openeness about the subject. Some laugh, some don't get it, some look at me confused, and some back away. Luckily, I go to a pretty open-minded school.
Oh yeah, and there was that one time on the playground back in elementary when they asked me which girl I wanted to marry. I can still quote my response. "I'd rather be one than marry one". Heh.
