It's really bigoted to think that being gay makes someone better at staying in shape, dressing, dancing, sucking dick etc.

Sounds like you've got a lot of growing up to do.

As someone with a regular bun (man-buns are disgusting), I gotta say - I don't think it's a gay thing, it's just a sign of poor decision making.

I'm trying to work up strength for hanging leg raises, but I swing too much when lifting my legs. Would training on the dip station with a weighted dip belt help to build up the core strength I need to do them property?

Yes. Theres a good trick for hanging leg raises to keep yourself centered, but it's literally impossible to describe. Also, if you're 6' + you should be able to hang off the pullup bars in the cable pulley stations (if your poo poo is Life Fitness or Hammer) and touch your toes to the ground between reps to stop yourself from swinging backwards. If you're not, just grab a dumbell and put it under your feet to touch against.

Lift slower, tighten up your core, you won't swing. It's possible.

I sometimes worry about laying on a bench right after someone who has lice. You know someone with lice is in the gym, sometimes.

TBH, I gained about an inch and a half on an inversion table..... but this is after I lost two inches from spine compression. :-) I would invert on that thing and over 10 minutes feel my shoulders slide down the bench as my disks decompressed. It felt great and seems to have permanently fixed a lot of back pain I was having.

Pause a beat at the bottom of each rep so you have to work against the swing.

Doing more dips is a good idea anyways, that will help build up the a shoulder and core strength you need to stop swinging.
