well, clearly it is performative. it’s not a natural biological thing that comes from liking cock. it’s a means of performing “I am gay” - a signal to others. that’s why not all gay men do it, because they don’t want to define themselves that way.

That’s my initial reaction to it, but that feels really offensive to me.

I’m curious: You’re in Australia; does the stereotypical voice happen over there? Or is that purely an Americanism?
