I am a sworn glove user, and yes, I confirm we are all definitely gay. No doubt about that.
That is no reason for discrimination or hatred, though.
The only glove I think I ever really hated was the Michael Jackson glittery one. It was silly, superficial nonsense when MJ wore it. It was completely absurd, mindless idolatry when fans did.
I will wear a pool glove when it's hot and humid. If the air is dry, I don't. And no, I don't have any problem adjusting.
I think where you lost everyone is calling an inanimate object gay, which is literally an impossible scenario. Though, I'm still not seeing a strong argument for anything you've said--perhaps if pool gloves all had floral patterns, or Hello Kitty on them or something? Anyways from what I've gathered, they're mostly looked down upon(if at all) by insecure people.
Headed to break some racks, thanks for the responses--hope everyone has a great day.
I bought a couple Poison billiards gloves, I think they look pretty cool, they keep me from getting chalk on myself/clothes, I don't have to run my hand over a chalk block that thousands of people have touched and probably the best part is I've noticed a slight improvement on shot control.
Yet it's commonly shunned, first I've seen on these forums and then in actual pool rooms, etc. So what's the deal? Why do people hate them/the people wearing them so much?
You're allowed to use the word 'gay' in a demeaning context. The question is, are you as narrow-minded and demeaning as using the word in this context implies you are?
Offended anyone? I doubt it.
We just find your attitude pitiful.
