Running gear & gay associations

Why is it that every time I search for running gear on eBay - be it split shorts or Ron Hill vests, does it always say GAY in the title as if running gear is some kind of fetish get-up for queer men?

I just don't get it.

  • Queer?  Who are you, Arthur Atkinson?

    And... WTF are you going on about?

  • I take it if you are asking for split shorts then you aren't putting in running and the split is at the back of the shorts not the sidesimage
  • If you want gay sites try googling leather full length  chaps with you young son next to you........................he wants them for horse riding and you have to explain all the pictures that come upimage
  • *pulls in couch and opens the pringles*

    This ought to be a good 'un

  • Cinders did you notice who the seller was on your link...Could be a marriage made in heaven for D2D image

    Phillis - Type either 'split shorts' or 'Ron Hill vest' into eBay and it'll come back with a list of items, some of which have titles like 'RUNNING SPLIT SHORTS/GAY' or 'Ron Hill Vest (GAY)'

    I'll save you the search - click me and meIt's bizarre.


    and the problem is?

     those items are definitely GAY!

  • FF, lol hadn't seen that image
  • I think it is just an unfortunate product code.

    It could be running gear for queer ladies.
    Never knew you into that sort of thing, D2D.

    I didn't realise Ron Hill now put his good name to vests specifically made for gay people...

    Easily the most stupid thing i have every read

  • image oh dear..........
  • Not sure where this is going.

    D2D, have you got anything against gay people wearing Ron Hill?
    Or in your words, some kind of fetish get-up for queer men?

  • My husband is gayer than a gay thing.  Should he take up running??
  • The Reading (gay) Pride festival was held over the weekend. I ran past the venue in my Ron Hills and didn't get wolf whistled so I think they're safe.

    As an aside, the festival is held on Kings Meadow ... which is known locally as Queens Meadow for that weekend.

  • i once saw an adidas track top i liked on ebay and it said in the listing to email for more pics, so i did, the guy emailed me back numerous shots of him wearing the jacket.....oh yeah and nothing else imageimageimageimage

    decided against buying it, especially after i saw what he had been putting in the pockets image

  • As someone has suggested, and the seller on your first link says, the GAY reference is just a product code.  I have to say though that the gear and model on the first are certainly very camp.

    No, I've nothing against gay people - my best friend is gay actually.

  • She'll tell us she know people that are not white next.image
  • and yet when I have worn lesbian clothes (ladies cricket whites) it wasn't described as GAY in the shop.

    I couldn't have cared less to be honest. The only thing that caused a slight concern with my kit purchase was when I was in Lillywhites buying my first bundle of whites and stuff. A young lad was serving me and I told him I was a beginner, just give me all the stuff a new cricketer needs. All went well until he handed me a box. I declined and, smiling, suggested a chest protector might be more appropriate. Poor lad, I've still never seen anyone blush so deeply.

    It's true.

    I've told you about him before - James.

    Don't get funny with me, Ian.

    And yet you still refer to gay men as "queers"? Bit of an outdated, perjorative word, innit? image

    *lol*  Poor fella!  Imagine the images that needed to go through his mind before it all clicked.
  • I think Lesbians are described as "ladies who favour the flatter shoe" these days...image

  • I wear flat shoes and boys clothes. in fact I was wearing boys trunks in the pool today, they matched my girls top.

    Just thought I'd mention it.
