Tonight Huffington Post Columnist Rachel Thompson and Writer/Critic Bennet Pomerantz discussion of the term  GAYDAR


Our guest is the author Bradford Noble, author Dating Bradford and life coast

in case you dont know what is it..Gaydar (a portmanteau of gay and radar) is a colloquialism referring to the intuitive ability of a person to assess others' sexual orientations as gay, bisexual or heterosexual. Gaydar relies almost exclusively on non-verbal clues and LGBT stereotypes. These include (but are not limited to) the sensitivity to social behaviors and mannerisms; for instance, acknowledging flamboyant body language, the tone of voice used by a person when speaking, overtly rejecting traditional gender roles, a person's occupation, and grooming habits.
