WHAT GAY SUBVERT DUDES TALK ABOUT IN PRIVATE.
Curt and I met in third grade. Over the years we have moved around but have always remained very close. We re-united twice, once in sixth grade and again just before our senior year in high school in a town called Ellensburg in rural eastern Washington state. We didn't have a lot of external knowledge to go on but we always had a deep and lasting connection that has spanned thirty years and I believe we have taught each other quite a lot. He is, to me, a soul twin of sorts and someone who's light is as blinding as the summer sun. Here is a brief conversation we had a while ago about the state of otherness and the subversion of the processed reality.
Here's a funny exchange my boyfriend Ben and I had online that i thought you'd appreciate. i watched this silly video he sent me , which i very much enjoyed: http://www.towleroad.com/2012/02/hot-bromance-gets-a-good-rap-video.html#ixzz1nEhDHzRX
This sounds like the kind of conversation you would have with shaun on Facebook:
Actually, the bromance phenomenon represents the front end of the seminal change that we are seeing in the male culture--a change that will result in the taboo against homosexuality being eradicated, NOT because of "gay" activism, but because men, in general, are realizing that their natural soul mates are other men, not women.....and that varying degrees of sexual expression of those bonds are a natural form of behavior. In fact, this sea change in the male culture overall will eventually totally obliterate the "gay" culture of effeminacy and the glorification the "feminine" that has always been its central feature.....and those who continue to try to promote it will become social outcasts for doing so. The elimination of emotional dependence on women will free all men to be themselves at long last....doing away with both the artificial concept of romantic love for women AND the artificial concept of "gay" and its embrace of the feminine…and the world will be a much, much better place because of it.
I told ben i loved the lengthy comment that i linked to it and Ben said thats it sounded like a conversation that you and i would have, i liked that as well.
I love the whole thing! I love Ben and can hardly wait to spend some time with him. I am thankful for the early-mid nineties onset of both Metrosexualism and Bromanticism. It was a little confusing to navigate at first, but I am actually able to have functional, healthy relationships with men in general, most notably gay men and most obviously heterosexual and bisexual men. The fact that sexual tension or lack thereof is able to be embraced in these relationships has made way for an intimate exchange where said tension is not the focus nor is sex the goal... Or if it is, so be it. Have sex and move on. Or even keep having sex until someone finds a primary sexual relationship and renegotiate.
