Dear Gay People,
If I had to describe gay millennials with just one word, it would be… BASIC!
The gay boys of today are all so basic I can’t even, I just can’t. They all seem to like the same things, dress the same way and do the same stuff. Tbh, I’m not quite sure where all this basic-ness is coming from. Maybe all those years of getting ostracised by straight people has instilled in them such a strong need to fit in that they pretty much all become the same person.
If you don’t believe me, the majority of gay millennials reading this will have 7 or more of the following 10 typically gay boy traits. And if you do indeed have 7 or more of these traits, I’ll be #SorryNotSorry as to hereby denounce you as a basic gay boy.
1. Taking Timer Selfies
The selfie game of most gay boys nowadays is so strong that front end selfies no longer cut it for them. Instead, the gay boys of today insist on using timer selfies, whereby they put their phone on somewhere high and then proceed to conduct a mock photo shoot of themselves since they can’t afford a real photographer.
2. Hashtagging #sgboy and #asianboy
If you’re already a full-time working adult, then you’re too old to still be calling yourself a boy.
3. Throwing their birthday party at a hotel despite the fact that most of them broke af
Not quite sure when chalet parties have gone out of style with the gay crowd but I’m guessing it’s presumably around the time when Instagram allowed gay boys to tag locations in their posts.
Lets face it, the only reason why gay boys throw parties at hotels is because tagging ‘Marina Bay Sands Hotel’ sounds a lot nicer than ‘Changi Chalet’.
4. Giving their gay squad corny squad names
Seriously, can yall not?
5. Being forever topless
The minute a basic gay boy attains a basic body, they seem to forget how to put a shirt on.
6. Not having any female friends
How some gay boys manage to not have any female friends at all completely baffles me.
7. Complaining about how ‘drama’ their life is
Ironically, the basic gay boys complaining about how drama their life is are usually the ones responsible for stirring up the drama themselves.
8. They love Bangkok
Actually, it’s more like they just love the wild gay parties there.
9. Their favourite singer is some pop diva
Not quite sure what is it about Beyonce, Mariah or Gaga that gay men seem to love but gay men do seem to have a knack for engaging in diva worship.
10. Being obsessed with Instagram
Some gay men take their personal Instagram accounts way too seriously it’s honestly pretty ridiculous.
