    Originally if a man in North America had his left ear pierced it meant that he was gay and sexually dominant, and having his right ear pierced meaning gay and sexually submissive.

    Gradually, it evolved to a man with his right ear pierced perceived as being gay and a man with his left ear being pierced perceived as being straight.

    Now, it just means a pierced ear.

    (Men getting their ear pierced originated with pirates; the value of the earring was meant to pay for their burial if they were lost at sea and their body washed ashore).

    It no longer means anything. Back in the 80's it did, but now days any man can have his ear pierced, and does not mean he is gay or straight.

    I have an earring on my left side and since the confusion (and the fact I'm not homosexual) I honestly don't care what side it's on

    right side is gay left side is straight

    its just a stereotype cause lets say your straight and you get it on the left that doesn't mean your gay cause you know your not.Cause if that was the case wouldn't getting both sides make you bi?
