- Gay Banker responded to a letter from a reader asking about how a person new to London could find some gay friends. Several British social networking sites are listed, including Village Drinks, Jake, and Out Everywhere. These are contrasted with Gaydar and Gay.com, which are characterized as more cruisey. It is remarked that even though the last two are sex-oriented, they are worth a look because one can also become friends with men one has sex with. Recycling old tricks into new friends is environmentally friendly.
- Jockohomo commented on the article in New York Magazine about the science of gaydar. The question is raised whether the traits that make one appear gay are biologically based liked sexual orientation. A quote is provided that indicates that being gay is more than sexual behavior or physical characteristics, it is about the nature of the soul. Well, it is also a little bit about penis.
- Stay-At-Home Gay pooh-poohs the concept of gaydar, pointing out that people are more likely to remember when they were correct about guessing someone's orientation rather than when they were wrong. This leads people to believe that gaydar exists and that gay people have it. The author believes one has to be more direct: "You have to get the final confirmation straight from the horses mouth (and by that I mean sticking your tongue down their throat) or for some of us from the horses ass (figure it out yourself ^__^)."
