'That Makes You Homosexual' Is The Best, Gayest One Direction Cover: VIDEO

OneOrientation

Serious hats off to the gents behind One Orientation's "That Makes You Homosexual", a loving homage to boy band One Direction's massive hit "What Makes You Beautiful."

It had me in stitches. These boys definitely speak the truth, Ruth.

Watch this hilarious parody AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. This was very cute. But to me, the mixed reactions here underlines the problem we have with the portrayal of gays in the media--it's much more interesting for people to embrace the stereotypical traits of gays rather than accept the fact that there are gays walking among them, acting like normal people. That's why whenever the media covers a gay pride parade you see two things--the drag queens and the leather guys--not the millions of other men and women who look and act like "average" people.

  3. This is really funny and made me smile. Thanks for sharing! I've noticed that when anything remotely effeminate or "stereotypically gay" is posted on here, there are several folks who immediately condemn it and say not all gays are that way. You're right, not all gay men are this way, just as not all gay men are apparently as hypermasculine as the haters on here. Gay men span the spectrum of masculine/feminine, and to knock on a video that is funny and actually is representative of some members of the gay community isn't very nice. And to say this is the reason gay men get bashed is beyond ridiculous...are really going to play "blame the femme gay" for the homophobes out there?? Should we all just try to "act normal" so straights will play nice? Geez.

  7. "Retarded, utterly unoriginal, embarrassing and not remotely funny. This is why straight people bash gays."

    Thank you, Joe.

    "Have you ever, ever, ever entertained the thought that maybe just maybe certain people hate gays because their inherited bigotry make them hate pretty much anything they don't understand?"

    There are a lot of things people don't understand, but don't hate, either. One can not understand certain aspects of foreign cultures, for example, without hating them, being, instead, amused or amazed or enamored of them.

    And there is no such thing as inherited bigotry.

    Effeminate behavior is THE principal reason gay men are disliked--and this applies to liberals, as well as conservatives, even if the liberals will nevertheless concede the principle of equal rights. And it is the reason bullying exists.

    It is rooted in internalized homophobia. Those who engage in such behavior are doing exactly what bigots want them to do--and in fact share the ideological notion that bigots put forth--namely that attraction to other men sexually is incompatible with masculinity.

    There is nothing natural in this behavior--and its artificiality is apparent to anyone observing it, which makes it even more pathetic.

    If you get your head stomped into the ground after behaving like this, don't come crying to the rest of us for sympathy, because you will have brought it on yourself.

  8. Here's another fun reality - all the gays complaining about this video aren't able to do the same thing - to be just as Visible and just as Identifiable.

    if you want people to see "the other kinds of gays" then you have one option: make a video of yourself, and your just-like-you gay male friends. show who you are.

    you can't sit in the closet and complain that the Out gays aren't "the right kind of gay" when your own kind is a simpering insecure pu**y typing furiously from the back of your closet.

    show who you are, represent the "kind of gay" you are. or STFU.

    the gays you hate aren't going anywhere. they will not go into hiding, they will not back down. so your anger at them will not affect them at all, it'll only drive you further into your own closets of despair.


    so show who you are, and how you are about it, or shut up. but to sit and complain about them misrepresenting you when you have no intention of representing yourself just makes you a hissy little wimp.

  10. Rick, I have a sneaking suspicion that all the things people say about your are 100% true. If "effeminate behavior" is "the principle reason gays are disliked" then I'm puzzled as to why you don't shut down your naysayers and prove them wrong by showing who you are, and how masculine you are, and what kind of example you lead, and how accepted you are by the straight people in your life.

    I know many people like the guys in this video. The straight people in their lives love and accept them.

    I've also noticed that guys who talk like you are always full of S**t. You're not out, and you hate that these types of guys are, because these are the types of guys you were brought up to hate. But what's the use? If you're such a real man then why can't you show yourself? You must have nothing to hide, since you're such a masculine "tolerable for straights" kind of gay man, so why can't you prove it?

    The gay men you hate and blame for anti-gay prejudice have no qualms with being out and visible and known. the gay men you canonize all seem to make every excuse in the book to not come out, and to not show themselves as gay men.

    Quite frankly, you sound like the definitive internet troll - the miserable old queen who is furious that a world of gay men is out there loving their lives and you don't have the cojones to do the same thing.

  11. Rick, you could use a lesson in your vocabulary words. Internalized homophobia is the condition where gay people hate themselves because they accept the dominant cultural assumption that homosexuality is wrong. Do you really believe that effeminate men act the way they do because they actually hate being gay? Why in the world would they do such a thing that would bring attention to themselves if they don’t want anyone to know they are gay? That doesn’t make sense. It sounds like you suffer from a severe case of internalized homophobia yourself, thinking there is only one type of “natural” masculinity and it just so happens to be modeled on the heterosexual version. And to say that people deserve to be bashed is absolutely reprehensible. I suppose all the kids that have taken their own lives because of bullying also deserved what they got? While it’s not the same thing at all, you can compare your statement to the people who blame women for their own rapes because they were dressed too provocatively. It’s always the victim’s fault from perspectives like yours.

  12. I think Rick makes excellent points and I too hate effeminate flambouyant queens for the same reasons Rick does. You see, Rick and I both engaged in loving consensual sexual relationships with our fathers, something the bratty trolls on this site refuse to understand, and yet both of our fathers made us dress up like girls when we'd engage in sex-play because they thought we wanted it. Why? Because of effeminate queens who listen to Lady Gaga. That's why Rick and I are correct - were it not for those stereotypical effeminate queens marching in heels during pride parades, we would both have been able to perform sex acts on our own fathers while still dressed as males, which was our only dream in life.

  13. Personally, I LOVE being reduced to a cultural stereotype.

  14. "...the gays you hate aren't going anywhere."

    Amen, Little Kiwi.

    I don't know why I read Rick's silly posts anymore. He's fighting....pretending to fight a cause that is hopeless (and should be).

    He'd better not go to the West Village the last Sunday in June and talk his sh.t. Some Drag Queen will take off one of her heels and whup his azz.

  15. Derrick, i suppose we can solace in this knowledge - the "RICK's of the world are so cripplingly scared of being known as Gay that they'll have no impact whatsoever in the world.

    They won't be around other gays in order to ruin our fun. They don't have the balls to be Out to straight people, so they won't ever raise their voice to change things.

    They will only ever log onto a website that allows for anonymous commenting, and that will be their outlet to live vicariously through, as they have no Out Gay Life of their own to enjoy or experience.

    there's a reason the "i hate femmes' crowd can never show their faces. They're not man enough.

    Posted by: LittleKiwi | Jun 14, 2012 2:51:34 PM


  16. @Douglas Gay men who try to behave like women are doing so because they have internalized the prevailing societal idea that homosexuality equates to a lack of masculinity.

    Did Alexander the Great behave effeminately? No. Do professional gay athletes like Gareth Thomas behave effeminately? No.

    You see, there IS only one type of natural masculinity and it is not the "heterosexual version", it is simply the "human version"--and it, in fact, has nothing to do with sexual orientation.

    By describing such masculinity as "the heterosexual version", even though it is manifest in many gay men, you just demonstrate exactly what I am talking about--that YOU and others like you have been so successfully beaten down that you have internalized the idea that homosexuality and natural masculinity are not compatible and that there is some kind of uniquely "homosexual version" of masculinity that is different from the "heterosexual version".

    Why would there be a different "version" of masculinity based on sexual orientation?

    What would be the basis for it?

    None--UNLESS you believe that sexual orientation is somehow determinant of degree or kind of masculinity.......

    Posted by: Rick | Jun 14, 2012 2:56:31 PM


  17. If you're so masculine then why can't you show us all this example you lead, Rick?

    Kiwi and Derrick are right. You're hating people who aren't going anywhere and certainly aren't going to back down, and yet yourself evade and give excuses to not be just as out.

    If you're such a masculine man why do you continue to refuse to show everyone this example you claim to lead?

    Posted by: Brandon | Jun 14, 2012 3:01:23 PM


  18. Wow, someone is *REALLY* hung up on gender roles....

    Posted by: John Kusters | Jun 14, 2012 3:01:24 PM


  19. Brandon, you're fighting as much of a losing battle as Rick is.

    Rick will never show who he is, and the gay men he blames for his hating being gay will never, ever, slink away into the shadows like he wants them to.

    So it's a good thing. He'll keep on being an anonymous coward and the gay men he hates will keep on living out and proud lives.

  20. Ok I'm reading the comments here and I really don't get it. Why are people so upset? I don't understand why there's so much hatred. I just came out last year, I'm a high school junior, and I'm already sick of guys saying that it's my fault that people hate gay people just because I'm not some jock or something. And thank you to the people on here who ask why. Why are other gay people always angry and hateful toward guys like this in the video, guys like me, and yet you guys who hate don't ever put yourselves on the line to show who we are. I don't get it!!!! Why are you so full of hate? Why are you mad at these guys in the video, when you should be mad at yourselves and all the other guys who you think are like you who aren't being as visible! Maybe people would think gay men are different if all you guys who think you're so different stopped hiding!!

  21. @Jamie Before you ruin your life, son--and trust me, being effeminate WILL ruin your life--limiting your professional and social options severely--find yourself a masculine gay man to model your behavior on. There are plenty out there now and they are the ones that succeed, professionally and otherwise.

    It will be the best thing you ever do for yourself and you are still young enough for it to change your life.

    Good luck to you.

    Posted by: Rick | Jun 14, 2012 3:28:53 PM


  22. Why? So I can end up like you? This is my first day reading the comments on this site and I can already tell that you're completely messed up. You're like those guys at school who tell me that I'm the wrong kind of gay, but you know what? I came out first. I did it FIRST! They're still not out! I walk around with a target on my back and they hide like losers. I know who my role models are and they're people who stand up for others, and people who are themselves, not people like you who hate and then hide. I'm not even 18 years old yet but I can still tell that you're the last thing I'd want to be like in my life.

    Posted by: Jamie | Jun 14, 2012 3:35:28 PM


  23. @Jamie, be who you are. You will be loved.

    Posted by: Linda | Jun 14, 2012 3:36:51 PM


  24. Jamie, they're full of hate on here because it gets them some obviously MUCH needed, albeit, anonymous attention. It's an odd kink, but apparently not uncommon.

    Rick dear, how do you know how masculine or feminine Alexander the Great acted, you weren't personally in his company, were you? If not, don't toss around your suppositions as if they were facts.

    Posted by: jim | Jun 14, 2012 3:39:16 PM


  25. @Jamie You don't know anything, little boy.

    It is a crying shame that the "it gets better" propagandists are sentencing impressionable young people like yourself to a life of misery at the social margins by encouraging the very kind of behavior that will keep you at the margins for the rest of your life--and you are too young and immature to realize what they are doing to you.

    Which is why kids end up being bullied and even killed.

    I just hope you see the light before that ends up being your fate, as well.
