how comes that famous male people who have someting to do with fashion, style, design and beauty seems to be all gay? Have straigt men necessarily a horrible taste, no sense of style and absolutely no talent in clothes and design? And if so, why?? Versace, Moshammer, nurejew,.. and how their name is, they were so brilliant in what they did because they were gay or has one thing nothing to do with the other?

It's really got little to do with being gay, from what I can see. It's all a stereotype thing. Straight men, while there are some with excellent taste, are generally afraid to get into such fields because they will be percieved as being gay. I've known straight guys who would love to have jobs like that, who chose to pursue other careers because they couldn't deal with having to explain to people 24/7 that they aren't gay. It's pretty dumb that people still worry about such perceptions, but they do. Not only that, but men are trained from childhood to behave in ways that are "manly". So it takes a lot of "breaking out of that mold" in order to pursue a supposedly feminine career choice. Gay men have already had to break out of that in order to come out, so it helps them in a way on that path. Realistically, all that being gay affects is who you choose as a romantic partner. My father is gay, and he's pretty darn masculine.
