I wore short shorts as a teenage lad in the 70's, but I'm sure my own teenage boys would not let me wear them today.

I wear shorts above my knees for three years now. I guess that's what you meant with short shorts? It has been the trend for a while now for both straight and gay men (at least in Miami, NYC and Philly that I know of).
I don't think any men; both straight and gay, will wear daisy dukes. Their "berries" will be hanging out the bottom part of the shorts' openings!

And I am gay so I guess my opinion does not count! ;P

I wouldn't wear daisy dukes and didn't wear them back in the '70s either. Some of the shorts and jeans back then were real nut crushers.

But I do like shorts that are cut more closely and fall above the knee. I think the super loose shorts that go below the knees look awful. They make every man who wears them look like a fat slob.

The 70's and 80's "nut hugger" shorts are not making a comeback here...it's mid-thigh only for me.

So whose wearing them this summer?

Gay guys you don't count since we know you'll be all up in them.lol

Show those legs men.

For once we women get to gauk at you this summer.
If you want to see hot, buff, yummy guys wearing short shorts, then all you need to do is go to a gay pride parade and/or to a gay (male) neighborhood.
