1.) Gay men exist to give you fashion advice
A gay man with amazing fashion sense is a staple of pop culture. From *Queer Eye for the Straight Guy* to the token gay bff (more on that later) who doesn’t hesitate when to tell you that you look like a hot mess, the mainstream media seems to have this idea that dudes who like other dudes also have a serious thing for Coach leather goods and cheerily-patterned pocket squares. This is not only insulting to gay men who would rather just show up in their cargo shorts and sweatshirt (I mean, be true to yourself, right?); it also makes assumptions about any man who has good fashion sense — and there are many straight men who know how to dress well (we’re looking at you, Jon Hamm).
