Gay bros rise to the defense of tall bottoms: “Hottest sex I’ve had”

Anyone can be a top and anyone can be a bottom—or vers or even a side, for that matter—but we all know the stereotypes about tops and bottoms. Such stereotypes would have you believe that tops are tall, domineering, and masculine, while bottoms are short, submissive, and feminine.And in a Reddit’s r/askgaybros forum, one 6-foot-2 Reddit user said he’s been made to feel “kinda undesirable by some tops, especially the dominating ones.”“Have any of you bottoms got rejected for your tallness?” the user added.Related: WATCH: The struggle is real for the 6’4” bottomUnfortunately, that tall bottom is on the receiving end—pun very much intended—of a scientifically verified bias.In a study published in PLOS One in 2014, researchers studied the height preferences among non-heterosexual men and found that “men that preferred a more dominant and more ‘active’ sexual role preferred shorter partners, whereas those that preferred a more submissive and more ‘passive’ sexual role preferred taller partners.”In other words, “men who preferred to be ‘top’ in the dyad preferred shorter partners, whereas men who preferred to be ‘bottom’ preferred taller partners,” as the researchers wrote.  A post shared by Schadey Lane (@schadeylane)Back in the Reddit thread, some commenters commiserated with the 6-foot-2 bottom’s plight.

He disinvited his gay brother from his wedding, so why is the Internet siding with him?
Bold fashion choices are practically a queer birthright, but every so often, a little self-editing is called for.A soon-to-be-married straight man uninvited his gay brother, Sam, from the wedding after seeing Sam’s planned choice of attire — a rainbow-colored tuxedo.Sam called the snub “homophobic,” but many online feel the groom was justified in his actions.To be clear, the bride and groom set a “black and white only” dress code for their big day, so showing up in a rainbow tux does seem like a fairly big cry for attention. Plus, you never want to upstage the bride.Sharing the story on the ever-so-popular AITA (Am I The A**hole) Reddit forum, the groom said he was initially excited to have Sam and his boyfriend Jack at the wedding.Related: She brought a homophobic date to gay cousin’s engagement party. It didn’t end well.That excitement was dramatically dampened when Sam sent his brother a photo of his outfit a week before the event.“Initially I thought he was joking so I said ‘lmao.’ He was very hurt and told me to go f*** myself.” He added he’s always been comfortable with whatever Sam wore in the past, but that given the circumstance, it felt inappropriate.The groom told his brother “he could come if he didn’t wear the outfit,” but Sam dug his rainbow-colored heels in the sand and refused.“He said it cost a lot of money and he didn’t want it to go to waste because ‘I was being homophobic,'” the groom wrote.“I am very much not homophobic,” he added.
His boyfriend’s mother is pressuring him to dump her son—help!
In what sounds like a psychological-horror spin on Meet the Parents, a Reddit user said that his boyfriend’s mother shunned him after meeting him for the first time, tried to get him to dump his boyfriend, and told lies about him to her son.In a post on the r/AskGayMen forum earlier this month, the Reddit user—let’s call him John—said that he had just gotten a call from his boyfriend’s mother, whom he met a few weeks prior. “His mum phoned me and told me that this was just a phase for him [and] said I should let him go so he can get back to his ‘normal life,’” John wrote.Then the mom hit John with a long list of flimsy rationales:She told me that I was the only boy he’d ever been with (untrue, we did the discussion about previous partners), he was in a relationship with his childhood sweetheart (untrue, we’ve met, and she thinks we make a great couple), he was only interested in my money because they come from a much poorer background (I don’t care about this, and it’s probably untrue, as he only found out about my real wealth a few weeks ago), he was just experimenting, he didn’t really want me, he wanted someone to look after him and I can’t do that.”On top of that, this misinformed mom told the John that the boyfriend assumed that his family would accept John because the John is Christian—and added that the boyfriend was wrong about that.“I was a bit taken aback [by] the call, and now [I] don’t know what to say to my boyfriend about the call,” John added in his post.
