  • Is it a red flag when a man pokes another man with his finger? Would this act signify the poker as maybe being a pervert homo or maybe having pervert homo tendencies?

    I was leaving a meeting that consisted of a the poker and 2 other people. As I was walking out the door, the poker was standing at the doorway basically rendering farewells to us. That's when he poked me. I think he was talking to another person, but not really fixed on a deep conversation, when he poked me. I wanted to ask him a brief question but I saw he was talking to another person, so maybe he could read the expression on my face or my demeanor, therefore, he poked me to alert me to engage him. But I still thought it was a little odd and peculiar. The poke was in the kidney area, and he did not say anything to me until I asked him the brief question. It seems to be an effeminate thing to do - at the very least.

    maybe he was acknowledging your presence without havein to interupt what he ws saying to the other person.

  • Whether it is a red flag identifying homosexuality or not, it could be.  But it could also be that the man is simply very impolite.

    I would not attribute homosexuality on this basis alone, but I would not be close friends with someone who thinks it proper to poke another man in the kidneys for fun or "in good humor" either.

  • The man's father may have been intrusive and used this gesture as an attention-getter, instead of a more polite hand gesture, so the guy does it without really thinking ?  I'd think the tap on the arm is much less weird. Our torso and internal organs are pretty much off limits, right?  I think I would avoid someone like that and observe more carefully before entering a closer friendship.  If nothing else, it's a lower class method of non verbal communication.

    That's a good point, but I think a simple pat on the shoulder, back or arm would be much more appropriate and less potentially scandalous.

    Good points from everyone else, too.

    Children must be taught not to poke.  It isn't homo, it's just rude.  I would have poked him back!

  • Some woman in church poked me once, and I am a man. She told me to move along the bench.
    Gotta love how the SSPX laity always are eager to correct others.

    Perhaps we should introduce the poking man to the poking woman!  Are both single?

  • I find it really effeminate when men breathe. It's so disconcerting, I can't help wondering if they are gay. I keep my children away from them just in case!

    The point you're trying to make is not even logical, albeit, it's sarcasm, but there is no comparison between the autonomic nervous system (breathing) and the act of poking with a finger against another person. The latter requiring a conscious and willful act.

  • My fiancée and his best man do things like poke each other all the time, just to antagonize each other for fun. They get a kick out of it. I've never thought it to be effeminate. Irksome maybe, but not effeminate.
    Religion clean and undefiled before God and the Father, is this: to visit the fatherless and widows in their tribulation: and to keep one's self unspotted from this world.

  • Usually, but not in all cases, men poking other men has homoerotic tendencies.
