There’s a responsible way to be masc-attracted, says the Internet

It’s not wrong to be attracted to masculine people more than to feminine people, but it is wrong to be a prick about that preference.So say many commenters in Reddit’s r/gay forum, who recently gave counsel to someone wondering if being masc-attracted was a problem.“I see that a lot of guys put ‘masc4masc’ and ‘no femmes’ in their Grindr profiles, and a lot of my gay friends have talked about how offensive this is,” the original poster explained. “I do feel like when dating, I’m more attracted to a guy with a deeper voice, strong jaw, taller [stature], all ‘masculine’ traits.

His boyfriend’s mother is pressuring him to dump her son—help!
In what sounds like a psychological-horror spin on Meet the Parents, a Reddit user said that his boyfriend’s mother shunned him after meeting him for the first time, tried to get him to dump his boyfriend, and told lies about him to her son.In a post on the r/AskGayMen forum earlier this month, the Reddit user—let’s call him John—said that he had just gotten a call from his boyfriend’s mother, whom he met a few weeks prior. “His mum phoned me and told me that this was just a phase for him [and] said I should let him go so he can get back to his ‘normal life,’” John wrote.Then the mom hit John with a long list of flimsy rationales:She told me that I was the only boy he’d ever been with (untrue, we did the discussion about previous partners), he was in a relationship with his childhood sweetheart (untrue, we’ve met, and she thinks we make a great couple), he was only interested in my money because they come from a much poorer background (I don’t care about this, and it’s probably untrue, as he only found out about my real wealth a few weeks ago), he was just experimenting, he didn’t really want me, he wanted someone to look after him and I can’t do that.”On top of that, this misinformed mom told the John that the boyfriend assumed that his family would accept John because the John is Christian—and added that the boyfriend was wrong about that.“I was a bit taken aback [by] the call, and now [I] don’t know what to say to my boyfriend about the call,” John added in his post.
