Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys

The new Sundance Channel series, "Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys," explores the gay best friend phenomena. Because, apparently no one demanded it, but got it anyway.





This brings a new face to the reality of niche, upscale TV. It is inescapably a female-gay ghetto. And the desire for upscale women for gay best friends for shopping (as detailed by the LAT review here) is telling. "A Celebration of the most important relationship in a straight girl's life -- her gay best friend!"


This show is the illustration of why, beta males are losers. Far too many, get pushed into gay best friend categories. Also, a look at the picture shows why straight White guys should never wear shorts except at the beach. The proliferation of "gay best friend" in urban, professional circles for women is toxic for the average White beta male. Thus the need to go Alpha male, or simply not bother.

For those wondering why this guy was featured on KTTV Fox Los Angeles, with his PUA bootcamp offering $1,300 seminars on how to actually pick up a woman and not be the gay best friend, the "hunk or gay" mentality of the modern professional woman is a big reason why. Gay best friends are an aspect, an indicator, of a skewed relationship market.

Our current relationship/sexual model puts a premium on hotness, and desire of the moment. John Edwards is not experiencing millions of women calling for his head, after betraying his cancer stricken, dying wife in the most ugly way. Now Elizabeth Edwards is struggling to live long enough to divorce him, to shield her assets from both Edwards bastard love child and legal action. So her children are not left with nothing. You would think there would be an outcry from women, to string up Edwards on general principles. Yet … nothing.

Decency, compassion, and faithful companionship seem to be the province of pets and gay best friends. Not family and spouses. For men, it seems various video games and perhaps pets as well. This is not the mark of a strong social structure able to withstand rapid change and many shocks. If Twilight, and Ugly Betty are part of the problem, so too is "Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys."

In a rational society, a woman's best friend would be her husband. Who, even if he was older, or fatter, or less socially dominant, would be her partner in every aspect of her heart and life. Not a mere sex object supplemented by a fabulous gay best friend. That the upper classes so obviously celebrate this dysfunction is more evidence (if it was needed) of their decadence.

First let us pray for Elizabeth Edwards, who suffered so much in her life. God rest her soul.

Second, the "fag hag" phenomenon is nothing new. I knew women like that back in the 70s. See also Mary Louise Parker's role in the 1989 film "Longtime Companion."

Fag hags are not new, that's true. They were also around in my day in college in the mid-80s.

I do think, though, that the gay rights movement has placed this on steroids a bit. Now it's not just for the traditional reasons that women have gay male friends, but it's also for the political *panache* among the PC set.

Heck, it gives you more PC cred than being married to a blind transsexual eskimo.

No, because fag haggotry is an amplified version of the LJBF phenomenon, while its inverse is a threesome and/or attention whores trying to impress an alpha male.

How does the saying go? Women have boyfriends and girlfriends -- and if you're not fucking her, you're her girlfriend.

hah, awesome

When you get into an anonymous internet environment, the freedom to be honest is almost amazing in its capacity to explain the world.

Shows you how ideologically repressed we are.

The gay best friend is our modern equivalent of ancient eunuchs.

Just to let you know, a 'fag hag' is an ugly women who hangs around gay males.

A 'fruit fly', however, is an attractive women who hangs out with gay males.

In light of this media portrayal, one must ask to what extent men will pretend to be gay in order to secure female companionship. It's a bizarre twist on the mating impulse, but it is nonetheless a sound strategy to secure mating options.

"Fruit fly". I like that one!

Gawd, that sounds like the premise of a new sitcom. Have we really descended that low?

If this article doesn't give the majority of single men in the Anglosphere/Western World more reasons to walk away from the women of the Anglosphere/Western World and go to Latin America, Eastern Europe, Russia; and East/South-East Asia then nothing else will.

On another note, I agree with the posters here that the whole thing about girls having gay men as friends IS an extension of of the whole "Let's Just Be Friends"/"Friend Zone" treatment the majority of young women in the Anglosphere/Western World give to the majority of heterosexual men in the Anglosphere/Western World. I've got a feeling that Anglosphere/Western Women want to to turn all of us men "gay" so that they would be free to persue bad boys and thugs until their heart's content.

That's just what Eastern Europe and Latin America needs, an influx of marginalized Americans poisoning their gene pool. We made our bed, let's sleep in it. Otherwise, revolution.

modernguy,

Abadoning the Anglosphere/Western Women for the women of Latin America, Eastern Europe, Russia; and East/South-East Asia is already underway with many men from the Anglosphere/Western World "jumping ship" and for very good reasons e.g. Latin America, Eastern Europe, Russia, East/South-East Asia are not as misandrist/feminist/female-orientated as the Anglosphere/Western World

Men, let the Anglosphere/Western World sink under its own stupidity and misandry. There are better places in the world where there are plenty of attractive women.

Whiskey according to what you read about John Edwards, he can be a sympathic chracter. According to what I read in Game Change(very well wriiten BTW). Most of John Edwards aids thought the man was Asexual and very much a dotting beta to Elizabeth.

in other words unlike Clintion, Edwards didn't have a new one rolling in every week.

whiskey you are such a romantic. When you write things like this you give me the ginna tingles.

The gay men in this show aren't bears. Most are of the ephmanate type. A couple of them have sleep with their female friends( one has done it more than once).


What women get from this sort of gay man is the best of both worlds.Someone who can protect you and make you feel safe, some you can touch and enjoy his manliness without feeling thretened, someone you can talk to and who understands you almost as well as another woman.

Quite helpful piece of writing, thanks for the post.

If any men here are listening/watching -literate women get turned on by correct spelling and punctuation. From what I have seen here, many of you might benefit from some advice in this category.
