    I know this Naijasinglegirl to be a humour blogger. So I simply have to believe this was intended as a joke. It’d be ridiculous otherwise. Like seriously, he showers with hot water? He covers with duvet? He drinks Fanta? He applies body cream?
    If anything, this is an insult to/degradation of str8 guys.

    This blogger just fell victim to stereotypes. most of what’s here qualifies a metrosexual man, not necessarily a gay man.

    I stay in benin and we all know how serious the raining season is there, and you come here and blad nonsense about men having umbrella, so all men who own an umbrella should now be tagged gay! But this is the lamest article I read recently

    I goht it on WhatsApp yesterday and I told was so happy because seen every guy is guilty of 5 at least; I won’t be wrong to ascertain that all Nigerian guys are gay

    Gone are the days when the term ‘gay’ was used to connote happiness. Nowadays, only one definition comes to our mind when the word gay is mentioned.
    Statistics say 1 in every 10 men are gay. What if I told you that male gossip partner of yours in the office is gay? That your ever smiling neighbour is gay. That banker you are crushing on is gay. Your fiance of 9 years is gay?

    In fact, any guy guilty of 5 of these signs is definitely gay.

    1 He owns an umbrella
    2 He showers with hot water
    3 He covers with a duvet when sleeping alone
    4 His bathing soap cost more than N150
    5 He wears a pouch on his phone.
    6 He applies vaseline/lip gloss on lips during harmattan
    7 He applies white powder on his armpits
    8 He changes his BBM dp more than thrice a month.
    9 He owns a selfie stick
    10 He drinks fanta
    11 He wears pants rather than boxers
    12 He uses a photo/selfie of him as his phone or laptop wallpaper
    13 He sips drinks with straw
    14 He chews a gum for more than 10 minutes
    15 He uses snapchat filters
    16 He runs when crossing the road
    17 He applies body cream
    18 He wears a nose ring
    19 He places one leg on a stool/bed when applying body cream
    20 He takes a selfie with another guy
    21 He has Camera360 app on his phone
    22 He ties sponge on his waist after bathing
    #This is how she sent it to me..

    This is funny tho….. The pouch thing is to protect the phone, doesn’t mean one is gay….

    I was expecting her to say an average gay man dresses better than your average straight guy, but then this is just humor .

    The tying sponge around the waist ??????

    How then do you know someone isn’t gay? Cold should finish a man because he doesn’t wanna use a duvet, abi? Straight people have an invisible shield to protect them from the rains?

          Madam Delle calm down oh !This one you are busy chasing and trolling my comments this afternoon you know i’m just joking right?

          Just like I believe the lady in question is…I honestly just feel it’s something to just read and laff over.

          So for the fact you are effeminate and have always had to be on the defensive all your life like a lot of us doesn’t mean you have to get all hot and bothered when you come across a comment that seem to be directed to your kind of persona,just because after reading most of what she wrote you fit into her checklist just like a lot of other neat metrosexual straight dudes out there.

          So chill and go get urself a cold bottle of fanta.She meant no harm and i’m sure she doesn’t want her own male siblings to have chapped lips during harmattan all in a bid to be called straight,or be all smelly cos real mean don’t need deodorant.or be tagged gay just for taking a bottle of Fanta when they feel like it or simply having fun using the snap chat filters.

          Neither does she want them to be bouncing on a highway instead of running to avoid being knocked down by a car.

          Trust me she’s not that shallow or ignorant so stop making urself look stupid cos of ur insecurities.

    Lol… You guys should chill. I’m an avid NSG blog reader and I know that she is a humor blogger and a good one at that. What she does is humor mixed with satire. There was even one of her post titled “How to cheat on your wife” (or something like that). At first glance it’ll seemed really downgrading to women everywhere but read till the end and between the lines, you’ll see how much satire was in it. I get why people are pissed but at least know the full story na #DangersOfASingleStory we are all guilty of this one way or another. Biko don’t be pissed at the satirical humor blogger but at the average Nigerian who will actually believe this and the people who plagiarized her work.

    Starting from the first, I see rubbish… I bathe with hot water because of health issues, I put a leg on a chair not even a stool to avoid bending my waist, I use body cream, I cover with a duvet… This girl is extremely dumb walahi… Instead of drinking Fanta, I take Pepsi, the big bottle gaan… I wear briefs because I have a very big one and I get too sensitive wearing boxers…. So, this girl can go fuck herself in hell….
