Word of the Gay: "Troll"

A "troll" is a word used in the gay community to denote an older and unattractive gay male.

Yeah it is pretty horrible, I didn't want to post a picture of a person because I didn't want to even label anyone ugly or old, so I figured a troll will do lol. Plus he has a gay shirt haha.

VIA the internet "Troll" is slang for someone who goes out of their way to intentionally harass someone, get a rise out of them or provoke unnecessary disgruntled situations, without provocation.

In other words, one of those people who think the internet is a play ground and the people around them are less than real. Hence cyberbullying D:

Yeah, many of the words and phrases I feature have other meanings but I only highlight their queer undertones. Sadly, though as I am sure you have seen mewi this site gets its fair amount of trolls and spammers.

No, a troll is not some careless term used in the "gay community". It's a stupid term used by stupid gay men, the same way stupid gay men call women "fish" for reasons I will not get into.

Not all gay men are gorgeous muscle hunks, nor do they are so STUPID as some "gorgeous muscle hunks" and some of their blind worshipers who call any men less hunky than Jeff Stryker a "Troll" Who are you calling a troll, buster? Know that many of the not too attractive fight for gay rights and against inequality,too, and even for marriage equality, even when is most unlikely someone will ever want to marry them, and they, too, have a right to love, desire, and perchance the right to dream and hope to be loved in return!Don't disparage a man on body appearance alone-it's the behavior that matters!

It is so heartbreaking not to have been born attractive. Most of my life I was harrassed for being gay. Now my own people call people like me a troll. I wonder why I was ever born?

Anonymous I object to the usage of this word and find it offensive. All people are beautiful and made in God's image, whoever calls you a troll is the ugly one.

Oh give me a break. "Trolls" are old gay dudes. Not all old gay dudes are trolls: some are still hot and smart and charming and classy. REAL trolls are out-of-shape, young-man-chasing, classless, persistant, and far too often completely delusional about their own sex appeal. They write foul things on restroom walls, they hang out in steam rooms at gyms so they can get a glimpse of showering jocks, they are grabby, and they won't take no for an answer. Your "God's image" platitude was silly: God doesn't try to grab your weiner when all you want to do is sit in a sauna after your workout.
