Why do gay men talk like that?

Let’s face it. Gay men have a stereotypical voice. Sorta.

Studies have shown that people can tell the difference between a gay man and a straight man just by their voice. (But not bisexuals.)

But why? What is the explanation? Gay Science has put forth a rational theory – and it includes Dolly Parton.

Gay men, you see, congregate in earthquake zones, allowing them to harness energy. That gets transmitted through their vocal cords. Other gay men can detect the vibrations, but straight men are notoriously bad listeners.

Dolly Parton can also detect the vibration, explaining why she’s such a strong ally for the queer community.
