Gay fringes are nearly always straight, because this way they flop into the emo's eyes easier and look more 'scene'...And of course, most emos wear their gay fringe straight; remember, emos are so non-conformist that they all look exactly like each other! It may also be worth noting that gay fringes are unisex, although due to the fact that all emo girls and guys look the same anyway, this isn’t really an issue. Another important factor pertaining to gay fringes is that they all have a common denominator: they look gay. Whether this is because most emos ARE actually gay/ bisexual/ pansexual/ asexual/ lesbian/ vegetarian, and they are trying to illustrate this through their homosexual haircuts remains to be seen...
Regrettably, gay fringes are a growing trend. In order to attempt to control this homo-friendly-fringe pandemic (and in order for you to maintain any of your dignity), it would be advisable for you to refrain from getting your fringe gayed-up, no matter how tempting it may seem.
Finally, a word of advice: if someone you know has acquired this sickening hairstyle that we call a gay fringe (or a variation of), give them some acne cream and some eye drops; warn them about the transmission of Human Immunodeficiency Virus; burn their My Chemical Romance Cds and confiscate their razor.
"Really? Me too, I just, like, got my fringe cut."
"Gee dude, that's, like, terrible."
"Yeah, my life feels, like, so empty now that I can, like, see again, dude."
"I, like, totally know what you mean, dude. I got my fringe, like, pierced today-"
"Whoa, that's really, like, deep and profound, dude."
"Yeah, but then the jelly baby earring, like, fell out. It was like my soul fell out in my hand. My life's, like, this eternal labyrinth of anguish."
"I have, like, no purpose. I'm gonna go, like, slit my wrists and then dye my gay fringe red with the blood."
"I'll go with you."
