Results of a survey show that nearly three out of four gay men are “turned off” by effeminate characteristics in a prospective partner.
The survey also found that just under half of the gay men in the opinion poll thought that effeminate gay men gave the gay community a bad image, with the study concluding that masculinity is in crisis within the LGBT+ community.
Published in the latest issue of Attitude Magazine, it has been revealed that 41% of bisexual, queer and gay men have considered themselves “less of a man” because of their sexuality.
Attitude’s Editor-in-Chief, Matt Cain said of the survey of 5,000 readers: “Masculinity is in crisis. At least that’s the message that seems to emerge pretty much every day from the mainstream media.”
