There are voices I do not like.
One is the up-lilt voice of vapid bubble-headed girls, where “everything becomes a question?”
Another is the croaky voice, where people intentionally fry their voices so it sounds like they just woke up. This is supposed to make them sound disinterested, but deep and artistic.
And another annoying voice is the gay voice. Not all gays have this voice, so I know it’s not necessary. I do not have anything against gay guys except that some gay guys talk like … they’re gay. Coincidentally, it’s pretty much the same voice and mannerisms transgenders use when they want to convince you they are women. So, I maintain the “gay voice” is an affectation, a put on, and it’s annoying.
You don’t see many straight guys with flaming countenance. Why is that?
Because it’s not normal speech seen in nature. It’s learned. I don’t even like when this is characterized as feminine, because that implies all women are annoying when they talk. They’re not. “Feminine” men are talking and acting more like little girls, not women.
Here’s the gay skater who’s been hired to announce. I’d have to turn the channel.
