Just because I like dick doesn't mean I have to divide the world into "gay-not-gay" categories. Blagh.

You whores. You don't even try to be coy about it.

Wait. I still don't understand what makes these tremendous 'gay' cars. I mean, besides maybe the Volswagen Beetle or the Subaru Outback, I don't see how any of these cars can be distinguishable as non-breeder.

...because PlanetOut Partners probably got paid mucho dinero (mostly in Brazilian money, because it's all pink and purple) to select these particular cars. After all, they are making a profit, unlike most dot-coms of its class. Gotta get that money from somewhere.

Mazda's charming Miata is a great car for both tops and bottoms.

Sometimes I hate the gay overculture.

My dad would be mortified to see his newly purchased Ford Ranger (black extended cab, just like in the picture) on that list.

Maybe I should tell him. It'll be just as much fun as when he thought I was a lesbian in high school because I cut my hair short.

'94 Geo Metro with a huge dent in the passenger door and a pup tent in the hatchback. Sponsored by lower income, energy saving, earth-centered blogger who just happens to be gay.

Okay, flame me for this, but here is my purely straight-guy-with-gay-friends-and-co-workers anecdotal opinion that is only intended to express what I see while living in a town that is pretty open to gay culture.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is indeed a "gay car." It really is. 90% of the Cherokees in my neighborhood have some variation of the rainbow flag, pink triangle, etc. I cannot comment on any other part of that list, but the Jeep Grand Cherokee, for whatever reason, is beloved by the gay community.

I'm telling you now that there is no car more gay than the Plymouth Prowler.

Crimony, just look at the name. They might as well call it the Plymouth Cruiser.

Hey, wait a minute!

Of course it is. Haven't you heard? It's the top prize for the gay with the most recruits per year. Several notches up the ladder from toaster oven.

If these lists are true, and the number of SUVs on the list, someone needs to teach these homos about fuel efficiency.

[sorry]Yeah, they've always got their hands on the pump[/sorry]

I got nuthin.

The Jeep Wrangler I'm not surprised about. Over here it's probably only beaten by the Suzuki Vitara as a stereotype gay man's car. I am surprised by the saab and the bmw though. But then, was it cars for gay people or cars with a gay image? If the latter then I demand they add the Z3. ;)

Dude, your car is gay.

So...where's the "10 Great Cars for Blacks in 2003"?

Back in the 80's I used to think the one constant thing about cars was that people in Jeep Cherokees and minivans were the most inconsiderate drivers. I don't live in the US now though, so I couldn't say. It's now BMWs and Mercedes-Benzes here in Taipei.

My ride (and I'm gay, btw) is a 1988 Yamaha RZR motorcycle, of a vaguely metallic gray hue. How gay is that?

I'm not gay, but that comment doesnt fly.

A lot of gay people live in gay communities which are typically in the city, and yeah they have SUVs. They don't drive as much since they are close to work. Meanwhile the green-head lives out in the trees of the burbs driveing a eco-friendly Toyota that gets 40mpg and drives 100 miles each day commuting into the city (or around it).

Who's needs to teach who about fuel efficiency? Who's contributing most to world destruction? Where you live is more important than what you drive. How much you drive is most important of all. I'm tired of the SUV bashing it's white noise distraction from the real issues.
