Hey, not gay!

Contra the accusations of the occasional critic, it would appear that Steve Sailer's system precludes my homosexuality.  I know I'll sleep better, for one:
Checking out these claims and insinuations is highly time-consuming and uncertain, but there is now a way to at least rapidly measure public perceptions of celebrities using what I call Google Gaydar.

When you begin typing a search phrase, Google offers ten auto-completion prompts in order of popularity. (This convenience came into the news recently when the wife of a German politician sued Google for auto-finishing searches on her name with helpful suggestions such as “prostitute” and “escort.”)

We can use the rank order of Google’s prompts to quantify what Mickey Kaus called the “Undernews” back when only the National Enquirer dared report on presidential candidate John Edwards’s illegitimate baby.
Apparently I am so straight that even typing in "Vox Day Ga" produces the results Vox Day Game, Vox Day Gamma, Vox Day Game Chart, Vox Day Game Thrones, and Vox Day Game Theory.  Contrast this to Kevin Spacey, who only requires "Kevin Sp" for autocomplete to throw out "Kevin Spacey Gay".  And then, there is Tom Cruise, who requires nothing more than one merely think about typing the letter T in order for Google to suggest "Tom Cruise Gay".

Clearly this is solid scientific evidence of my hypothesis that it takes a real and very straight man to drink a chick drink with umbrellas while wearing Italian loafers.  Oh, who am I kidding.  I'm living a lie.  In truth, I don't drink anything but red wine and prosecco these days.

Do you have a favorite red wine varietal?

Anonymous Totally Not Gay Myself September 26, 2012 3:42 PM  

However, google's autocompletion for "vox day n" returns "vox day nazi" as the first suggestion.

Heh.

OMG!!! Nazis!!!

Godwin'd the thread already? Gaydar thread + Nazis = ???

I'll have to keep hitting reload on Firefox after I make some popcorn.

Oh man.. That was damn funny VD.

I almost fell off my chair laughing.

Does drinking wine make you gay? After all, I have seen gay people drinking wine before. I never seen em drinking in italian loafers before though...


Hopefully the leftists gay people won't be threatening not to have sex with you. After all... That would hurt just too much.

I know this is OT....but, do you wonder how the replacements refs could suck so hard"

"Who are these guys?

The replacements come from lower-division college leagues such as NCAA Division II and III and the NAIA, and one even has Lingerie Football League experience.

Lance Easley, the side judge who made the initial touchdown call in Seattle, is a Southern California high school and junior college official. Karl Richins, a retired Division I official who trained and evaluated Easley at a training academy in July says Easley wasn't ready to work major college games, let alone the NFL.

Before the season, The Onion listed as among replacement ref gaffes: "Showed up on the field wearing Eli Manning replica jerseys." Real life trumped satire when side judge Brian Stropolo was kicked off a replacement crew that was set to work a Saints game when his Facebook page revealed him as a Saints fan."

Only 1 point. You have to put a "g", which puts it in single digits, and it's the 10th one so, just 1 point.

Except, if you type in "Vox Day Ho" you get "Vox Day Homosexual" as the prompt.

Anonymous George September 26, 2012 4:19 PM  

Of course the really funny one is if you type in "Vox Day i".

The first prompt result in this is quite funny.

Homosexual is such a straight man's term, George. "Gay" is the new pink.

My actual first and last names with "ga" comes up in google with absolutely nothing. As they say "Woo!" and "Hoo!"...

Vox Day, more like Vox Gay, am I right?

This very post however is going to skew the goggle gaydar on Vox.

Its the first thing that comes up for him now

Kevin Spacey should play Graham Spanier in the Joe Paterno Story. Joe Pesci should play Paterno. Tim Curry (or Clint Howard) should play Sandusky.

Not that there's anything wrong w...- oh, wait.

Anonymous Anonymous September 26, 2012 5:32 PM  

In my very limited experience, most gays have a very high opinion of woman. Ergo, Vox Day must be straighter than 180 degree line.

Wine is not gay, unless it's gay wine.

Chuck Norris g = Chuck Norris gay as the second entry.

Nope, not buying it. Sorry to burst yer bubble, Steve.

Hmmm...methinks the algorithm is based on something else...perhaps the people who made all the previous "queeries"?

Oh this story is just delightful! At the risk of not being a contributor worth his salt, may I suggest the VD analysis as worthy of the Sean Connery Fist Pump meme. :)

I may be mistaken, but I believe google tailors its results for you based on what you have searched for in the past. When I type T tom cruise gay isn't on the list at all.

The Italian loafers are a dead giveaway!

204, you are mistaken, but thanks for the (I'm guessing unintentional) laugh. On a related note, did you know that "gullible" is not in the dictionary? Look it up!

Anonymous Porky? September 26, 2012 6:53 PM  

I googled "Richard Gere g"

Turns out he's not gay, but he trains gerbils or something.

I told my wife Helen, after we moved away, that was it, you know? I promised I would stop playing around.


But there is a men's tennis court nearby where you can admire the game.

Back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. So tight in formation with those shorts.

So tight as the ball whizzes back and forth you can see the outline of their wallet and coc...combs.


I promised.
I uh... I think... I need a cigarette.

Wheeew. Tennis.

I googled my name, and the Google autocomplete gave me the following:

Blog
Chair
Artist
Oath Keepers
Alaska
Biography

If I type in the word "gay" nothing comes up. Relief!

And then, there is Tom Cruise, who requires nothing more than one merely think about typing the letter T in order for Google to suggest "Tom Cruise Gay".

Bullseye, that's hilarious!

Just think, VD: if you were Fat Albert, you could now say, "Hey hey hey, Google say I'm not gay!"

If you jumble the letters in Richard Dawkins, you come out with "Har! Darwin's Dick!"

Well...with, or without, wearing socks?

I'd never wear anything on my feet but Top Siders when drinking overpriced vodka (one ice cube)at the yacht club. If they actually, you know...get wet, they become "custom fit" to one's feet.
Yes, I have personally met a man (at a VERY nice rehab)who sported "special" white Gucci loafers, custom re-soled with Sperry "deck shoe" soles.
He claimed it was because Gucci used superior "lasts", for HIS feet. Oooo yeah, HE was an old daisy.

I didn't have the heart to tell him I recognised the "Guccis" as Asian knock-offs.
