Apparently it’s not socially acceptable for a man to invite another man out just for coffee or to go out for a meal, in case it’s perceived as a date. Like it’s fine if you wanna go to the pub and drink beer and have a chat but make it non-alcoholic and suddenly you’re not straight anymore? You can go to the cinema together but ONLY if it’s an action movie. You guys can’t even just go shopping with each other. Oh masculinity, so fragile, so strange.
It’s funny because I’m gay and sometimes straight guys want me to give them advice on doing their hair or what fit of shirt and pants to wear and stuff like that, but they never know how to ask without seeming effeminate. And it’s like, just ask, nobody’s judging you! Girls like when guys put more effort into their appearance, it shows that they care and that they want to make a good first impression to the people they meet! Straight guys need to be more comfortable with their feminine sides.
