    There is a guy in one of my classes at school that is "T" totally hot. He's 6'3" nice bod and brown eyes that capture your attention. To me he looks like a total chick magnet, but, he wants to be a travel nurse and wears a braided string around his ankle and sometimes a plain rubber band around his wrist. Help me out here. If a guy wears things like that around his ankle, is that a gay thing or is it just a yuppie Abercrombie type of thing to do.

    Just curious,

    LOL Are you implying that all these little hotties on campus wearing Abercrombie attire are gay? I WISH.

    BTW Hazelgod,

    I'm just curious and don't mean this to be sarcastic. What are the parameters of being 1%gay?

    IMHO, (in my rarely humble opinion), the more a man adorns himself with jewelry, the less sexy he is.

    I have no idea what you crazy college kids are doing these days; but my gut instinct says he is gay or at least bi. I have NEVER known a 100% straight man to wear an ankle bracelet.

    I agree with NJQT.

    I live in surfer city, beach sun and sand. No guys around me ( I have teenage children, so ages from 18-45) wear ankle jewellery.

    My gorgeous hubby wears a silver bracelet or a leather cuff sometimes, a black cord necklace with a silver pendant.

    He would seriously balk at wearing anything ankle.

    Around here hetro guys seem to avoid any form of jewellery, especially on the ankles.

    I dont think it is a "sign" that he is gay or bi, but I do think most 100% hetro guys would not want to be labled as "gay" so would avoid the attention of ankle jewellery.

    That's what I was thinking, but I'm 45 and he's probably 22 or younger so who knows.

    When i whent to the pow wows out west the men would wear bells on their ankles, when it was the audiences turn to be a part of the pow wow i would dance with my own bells on my ankles, along with feathers that i had wrapped myself, some were done by a cherokee women. I think what it really comes down to is wether or not a man is comfortable in his own skin or not. :smile: It goes deeper than social acceptability, it`s an inner part of a person that just wants to be one with the bigger sceme of things and not trying to fit in with the norm.

    Does a braided string actually count as 'jewelry?'

    As for the rubber band, maybe it's aversion therapy (think a bad thought or crave a cigarette or something and snap the band against the wrist.)

    Tribal costumes don't count lafever. Though I might pay good money to see you in a loincloth. :wink:

    Actually, I think it is more generational and socio economic than anything else. I tend to see somewhat boho kids in my neighborhood wearing them. As far as I know, most of these young guys are not gay. They probably are influenced by the Abercrombie and Fitch look, though. Or... Abercrombie is influenced by them.. who knows.

    I tried going about with one for awhile. I got the idea (that and the completely shaved groin) from tribal Africa (an identity statement thingy).

    People (in their ignorance) didn't get it, and by then it all seemed to be turning into this artsy-fartsy-tribal-tatoo-body-mod-cult-craze-in-thing to do. Next thing I know gothics, tribal sorts, gays, and other groups I didn't particularly identify with seemed to be sporting them like neckties. Even little kids were wearing them.

    There's nothing so boring as an aberration that becomes the norm. I quickly dropped it.
