Gay Cliques Census: Where Do You Fit In?

I just stumbled up on an unofficial Gay Cliques Census done a while back by a site called Noodles and Beef. The survey was created to shed some light on the demographics of the gay community, but also to discover what cliques are actually in use (eg, Bears, Cubs, etc…), the relationship between cliques and attraction to other cliques, how tops/bottoms range between groups, and what the geographic differences are between cliques.

Of course you don’t have to take it seriously, but it’s a fun exercise nonetheless. The survey told me that I was a Gym Bunny, who are apparently mostly attracted to other Gym Bunnys, Gym Rats, and Otters.

I can agree to a certain extent, but when I looked up the definition of a Gym Bunny in the Urban Dictionary, it read: “A gay man who spends an obsessive amount of time in the gym working on sculpting his body — not for health reasons — only to show it off in a club or on the beach.” I don’t really see myself as that guy. Especially when I read the example the Urban Dictionary uses: “Richard couldn’t seem to find time in between work and his gym schedule for a relationship. He is such a gym bunny.” LMFAO – that is definitely not me. That does describe my former roommate exactly though. Share your results below!

    it says I’m a gym rat, most attracted to other gym rats, gym bunnies, and muscle cubs. There are a lot of cliques on that chart I’ve never even heard of. What the hell are otters, gainers, and bulls?

    The only questions in this survey pertain to physical characteristics. It’s interesting that they label people according to their height and weight while not asking questions about their lifestyle. There are plenty of skinny people who do not go to the gym, the fact that they are labelled as “gym bunnies” is misleading.

  • I was labelled a wolf. I’d never heard of that one before…but sounds kind of sexy, so I’ll take it! And it says the only group I’m remotely attracted to are other wolves (which is not true in my case). But I agree, limiting it to physical characteristics can’t make it completely accurate.

  • HAHAHAH. It said I was a gym rat. Soooooooooooo far from the truth

    and otter is a cub that is fit, a gainer is someone who likes to be fed and gain weight, I’m an otter!

    I’d probably be considered a twink, but my personality is so anti twink.

    Cliques… in other words, adult gay men acting like 12-year-old girls. Depressing.
