Gay men- Are we on average more picky than straight men? watch

    I have no data to back this up, and I am aware I am making a generalisation. Of course not all gay men are picky, and some straight men are very picky. However, on average, I get the impression that gay men are EXTREMELY picky with their partners. Why is this?

    Since gay men make up 5-10% of the male population, surely you would think that gay men would if anything be more open minded about choosing a partner but from personal experience, it seems that sadly many gay men discriminate against each other. I.e. 'He is too camp' 'Not laddish enough' etc etc etc

    Why is this?
    And do you think my opinion is true?

    Here's some statistical data:




    It's fair to say that the statistics on this are somewhat contradictory, and none of them are definitive for 2018.
    However it does seem clear that your hypothesis is incorrect - according to the statistics found from a quick google search.
