My thong showed and some girls laughed and said it was gay?

I thought it was acceptable for guys to wear thongs these days. I mean, after all they are comfortable. I know showing ones undies is a no no, but still if you wear low rise jeans it happens. anyway, some girls laughed and said I must be gay. but I am totally straight, really fit. why the negative comments?
Update: i mean, I wouldnt assume anything about a persons sexual orientation from underwear. if i saw a guy in a thong I would just think he was comfortable in himself.
Update 2: well seeing as how my gf bought them for me, i didn't think anything of it. and personnally, i don't think clothes make a persons orientation.
Update 3: why the hateful comments from people? kinda immature.
