I was having some pregame beers w/ my boy before a softball game. While he was making the lineup, I noticed he writes his S from the bottom to top and same with his 9′s and capital B (straight line down then the ass of the letter). Now I can’t figure out for the life of me how this happened but either way, should I be concerned?
Glad you came to me with this one because there is a lot of misinformation out there on the internet concerning this subject. Websites all over the place claiming that this “doesn’t mean anything” and how most children will grow out of it. Well here’s the thing: your friend is no child. If he was we could probably just chalk this up to a learning disability and go on our way. But he’s not and we can’t. And since your friend is a grown male person there’s only one real conclusion — he’s gay.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that, and it’s clearly better than him being a “psycho”, but being older than 12 years-old and still penning his letters from the bottom up is a clear sign of his affinity for penis. The correlation between upward S’s and homosexuality is well documented. Straight men write top down. It’s the way the bible was written. B’s from the bottom? Queerest technique in the world outside of sticking a pen in your asshole and writing with your butt.
Your friend might still be in denial as this whole thing is often difficult to come to terms with, but rest assured he enjoys naked man bodies and will be playing dummy sticks with other bottom-up S’s before year’s end. Either way, remember: it’s not your job to change him. You can’t. Just stick by his side and treat him like someone who makes his 9′s the way people who can get married make them.
