Sorry Lord Wank ,you may be right but your logic is flawed.wearing these types of underwear did not necessarily mean you were gay.
I wore underwear like this for most of my life. Where i come from all the real-men wore these.
Only boring” dads” ,grandpas and dorks wore white y-fronts or boardshorts or boxershorts as the Yanquis call them.
To fancy yourself a real man and be seen in the bedroom with anything other than coloured jocks -as we call them -by a woman was akin to social suicide. Word got around and you would never again be within sniffing distance of a Sacred Mount again!
Boardshorts are still considered a god-forsaken Americanism here by anyone over thirty five and still scoffed at.
Having said that i reckon you said the above with tongue-in-cheek.I am only mentioning it for the sake of completeness.😌
