Six, though I much prefer 6-6-6! Ha!
Heh. I didn't know the Anti-Christ is gay.
I saw it on South Park so it must be true.

Proof positive!
no wonder the church is so homophobic lol.
In my teenage years I was a 3 and now I am more like a 5. I think one's gender preference can change over time, particularly in women.
2.5-3

probably a three
I'm a zero. (I don't like the sound of that).

Does being a zero mean that I don't see the attractiveness of other men? I have never been physically attracted to a man. But, I am often talking to my wife and others about the attractiveness of particular men.
I have had man crushes. There are people that I would like to know better and get close to.

You tell me, am I a zero?
I call that being homosocial. I think a lot of men enjoy the company of other men to that of women. Same applies to women, too. I think people can sometimes be more honest and open with members of their same gender.

We cannot choose our desires, and I sometimes think that they choose us. If you are not attracted to men physically, there is nothing you can do to change that, and of course, there is nothing wrong with it either. Desire simply IS! It is what it is without reason, or logic, or intention, or meaning. And if desire is not present, you cannot invent it, force it, or coerce it.

Most people can recoginze the attractiveness, or lack thereof, in members of their own gender without experiencing desire or attraction themselves.
I might be homosocial. However, I feel most comfortable talking to women. They seem more free to express themselves.
I may just be my perception but most (straight) men in my circles are afraid to show their feminine side. Whereas, I am not.
Define feminine side. Being soft? Being nelly? Being sensitive?

Some gay men are "soft", I think. Being nelly is just obnoxious, and not really feminine. Beining sensitive is not exclusively feminine.

So what do you mean? Affection? No, most straight men will not show affection to other men, but gay friends are often very affectionate. Hug, sit close together, etc.
We are off topic but I'm going to keep going.
When I mentioned femininity it was in the context of being affectionate and sensitive (stereotypes). Of course neither of these qualities is exclusive to women, femininity, or humans.
I agree that most straight men have difficulty showing affection. Most straight men will not stand face to face when speaking. Also, some have difficulty showing affection to their wives.
Moreover, I want to express that I don't have deep connections with the men that I know despite trying. I think that is a little sad.
