I’m Never Using The Word ‘G0ys’ Again

At the intersection of internal gay politics, “alt-right” provocation and Jewish vernacular, here comes more ammunition for the language police.

Here come the G0ys. — a group of men who have “affections for other men” but are opposed to stereotypical gay culture and what they claim as its threats to male culture.

They use a zero instead of an “a” because, for them a is for anus and they “reject anything to do with playing inside another person’s anus.”

In among pictures of well-built men in various states of undress come explanations of their stance. In the section “Head’s Up – Dad!” [sic] they say

Most men who have grave fears about the sexuality of the children have received those fears in the form of false evidence appearing real. There are (2) groups responsible for this “false evidence.”

Conservative fundamentalist-controlled ‘reicht.’

Liberal, gay-anti-ethos left.

To be delivered from fear into the peace that is the truth, — is to realize that both groups are vile liars, and that neither you nor your children need not be the object of their messages.

Dedicated to trolling gay men and straight folk alike, and committed to a particular idea of masculinity while quoting the Christian Bible (and embracing a Hebrew word for non-Jew) they aren’t poised to make a lot of friends.
