Recently discovered RP and AltTRP and beginning to notice how accurately it describes a lot of dynamics in the gay world as well. This is probably old news to you guys but I wanted to share for feedback and to see if this is common beyond my own anecdotal observations. TL;Dr is that the wall only applies to bottoms. Men who remain bottoms post wall become the "bitter old queen" stereotype. I know many, many gay men all across the age spectrum from 18 to 60, all levels of masc, fem, top, bottom, vers. I have known many for several years and have watched them progress from twink to twunk, otter to wolf, cub to bear. And honestly, hands down, the happiest ones I know are the single, masculine, professional top men in their 40s and 50s. They're happier than the new hot younger "fresh meat" guys. They're happier than guys in LTRs. Why? They've 1) kept in good shape 2) worked hard to be successful 3) put themselves before others 4) employ abundance mentality 5) have strong frames 6) DGAF....basically RP Alphas in a nut shell. The specific guys I have in mind include a doctor, a guy in finance, attorney, and fed agent. They all own places in nice parts of town and spin several 18-25 yo hot twinky bottom plates a week, travel, and live it up, because they invested their youth in themselves instead of resting on their laurels or falling into an LTR. The guys I know their age who are bottoms? They're washed up and still trying to compete against men at the peak of their SMV. Lesson learned: invest in yourself. If you're a bottom, transition into top by mid 30s. Stay in shape. Betas don't fare well in the gay world either.
