    I suppose its a bit like when I hook up with a muscular guy and say "I'm skinny, is that ok?" Instead of appreciating the fact that someone finds us attractive, we think about what sort of people they are probably normally attracted to. And it makes us think about our own "unattractive" qualities.

    Gay men are terrible for putting themselves and each other into categories, depending on age group, body shape, ethnicity, amount of body hair, fashion sense and god knows what else. And the trouble with doing that is when you say you find one particular type of person attractive, it implies that you don't see anything attractive in all the other types.

    Quite true. I am Black American. I was hooking up with a white guy when I lived in the states. Meh. Out of the blue, he told me he'd never date me because I was Black. Just wanted the fabled "BBC". Ugh
