In Britain at least, a man whose left ear is pierced is almost always a man who considers himself heterosexual. A man whose right ear is pierced is almost always a man who considers himself homosexual. This tradition is so universally understood amongst the "gay culture" that a male hetero here or male homo here who gets one ear pierced is invariably very careful to get the correct ear pierced, lest the incorrect message be conveyed.

Logically, both a man's ears being pierced should be a statement of bisexuality, one would think, but practically, it's not - both homo and hetero men sometimes have both ears pierced, and I can't off the top of My head recall ever personally encountering a bisexual man with both ears pierced.

That's how it works here. From what has been stated by TrojZyr above (or below, in threaded mode), it may not be the same in America.

For the record, I personally have tattoos down one thigh*, and no piercings. I might consider getting an ear pierced. I don't know which ear, though, being bisexual Myself, and whichever ear I might get pierced would falsely scream out hetero or homo, and I wouldn't get both pierced as (My opinion only; no offence to any gentlemen here who have both pierced) having both pierced looks crap on men.

*I have the Japanese mantra "Masakatsu Agatsu" in kanji. Translated, "True Victory, Self Victory", which I consider a reflection of My character, although I interpret these words slightly differently to how they were (probably) intended.

The same in America, as far as I know.

When I had my (left) ear pierced, the young lady who did it made very sure I understood the "message" involved beforehand.

I'd no idea about all that, before she explained it.






Ah, I see.

Thank both you gentlemen for the info.

i personally think that is extremely silly to have to make sure you have your ear ring on a certain side of your head in order to maintain sexual perverence integrity (in the eyes of others).

Well, once I get out of the Marines and decided to get my ear peirced, I'll be sure to get it done on my "non-gay" ear.

Ha!

Yes,sir!

That was definitely a typo!!

I can type pretty fast but have a bad habit of having a slight lack of attention to detail.

But...I am glad that I could make you laugh!

Personally, I don't think the fundies know who are the "goodies" and the "baddies" in Harry Potter books. All they know is the books are about magic and witches, therefore it must be Evil.

Just the same as there is no "Good" witch in The Wizard of Oz. When growing up in the neighborhood there was (believe it or not) a catholic family that would not let their children watch The Wizard of Oz because it had a "good" witch in it. Needless to say us neighborhood kids made fun of their kids.

Absolutely. Just say the word magic and they get their little panties all in a wad. It's sort of like yelling "BOO" at someone in a house of horrors, the way they react.

The thinking goes something like this. If you read those Harry Potter books, get a tatoo or piercing, or listen to metal music, you are flirting with Satan Himself. Your eternal soul is in mortal danger! Muuuaaahaaahaaah

I recommend you read "Wicked" by Gregory Maguire to truly find out which of them was the "good" witch.

As usual, they don't even take the time to do a little research before writting their crap.

The left-ear or right-ear piercing thing is kind of a "non-written rule" that have been around for long time. I found it's used in different countries and cultures. But still some times you find someone who pierced the "wrong" ear for his orientation.

They never made a rule for bisexuals. I guess you have to wear the piercing on your nose!

I think it's the intent behind it and not the act itself thats important. I can think of many people right off the top of myhead that do body modification not to celebrate their flesh, but as a knee jerk reaction to be "cool".

Just as a side note, take a look at Fakir Musafar's website. This man has been modifying people's bodies for fifty years! It's a little more than just ears though.

those people are fools, whomever wrote the article. myself personally have my labret, lip, eyebrow and one ear pierced and i can personally say it was not following the crowd. i did it for 2 reasons; reason one was personal preference as i like having them there and couldnt care less what others think about me for having done this. reason two was a rather crude and simple excuse as to why i would pierce my own face, and that was just out of sheer boredom. now as for this being a sign of a satanist? i scoff at the ignorance of these people, plain and simply. this is in my belief, another person trying to stifle or scare off people from doing what they want. i say if they like being pierced, then so be it, let them do it and go along on your own path and pay no attention if it bothers you. if they do it to "be cool", then let the sheep join the herd. it shouldnt matter what others think it represents.

The only redeeming feature of this article is it's length.

It was so obviously written by a fundamentalist Christian, and quite dated to say the least.

Last I heard, the left or right earring thing went out in the seventies.

I've had both of my ears pierced for almost 20 years now - so I'm a promiscuous homosexual? Well, I'll admit to one of those distinctions!

I wonder what this writer thinks of a tattoo of a cross.
