Y Chromosomes determine whether you're male or not.
So if you have XX chromosomes, you're a girl and if you have XY chromosomes, you're a guy.
Chromosomes contain genes from your parents and determine stuff like eye colour, hair shape, skin colour, etc etc. Hormones make things change, eg body development.
The Y tells the body it's male, that's the only function of the Y. In some errors in Meiosis in male sperm production a man may "Accidentally" pass on both his sex-related chromosomes instead of just one or the other with little to no consequences in most cases, unless of course he and his wife both passed on an X with the same sex-linked chromosomal abnormality such as color-blindness or what have you.
And sometimes one can be born genetically male but develop as a female physically. There's one actress I heard of that's like that, but I dunno who she is.
But now we're drifting off-topic.
I think it's more a movies character that curved into some our minds that gays should act like girls, wear dress or put on make up.
No! There's no such thing. There are some men who bear estrogen hormones which causes them feminine noticeable things but not every gay has this hormone malfunction.
Actually i haven't seen any girlish gay. But i have seen Men who have feminine signs or likewise.
If a gay guy wants to be feminine, let him be feminine. Stepford Wives taught us that making a person behave within restrictions set based on their gender is wrong. Also, whatever makes a person happy makes them happy, so leave them to it.
Stop protesting, I'm merely raising a point for discussion, I'm not trying to rally up an angry mob.
One of my friends is gay and isn't attracted to feminine men because he isn't attracted to girls and is looking for more than a girl with a *****. I also disagree that it is a stereotype, when I used to go to gay bars with my friend, I'de say 60% of the gays in there would act like girls and think my shoes are fabulous. I mean, they are fabulous but, I wouldn't receive that compliment if I was at a rugby pub.

Stewart played a gay man in a relationship, and though he does act the part very well, there are a few instances of stereotypes burning through to the surface.
However, all in all I think I should watch it again just to be sure, it's been a while. It's worth a watch though. He doesn't act all that feminine for the most part, though he does act a bit stereotypically.
Here's a clip of some scenes.
After hearing that, I thought of all gay people I knew, and it kind of makes sense. My uncle is gay, and he came from a family with 7 children and a father who was very "manly" yno, working class guy, ran a sports club. It makes sense that he wouldn't have spent much time with his children, or any time emotionally connecting with them.
