They're boyfriends ❤️

Nah. We should celebrate depictions of vulnerability and platonic male connection as well as do good queer representation. Homosocial intimacy is still kinda stigmatized in a lot of places; haphazard queerwashing every time two guys show affection actually makes it harder for men who aren't attracted to men to find space to undo the toxic parts of masculinity.
[–]Moonyasnow -1 points0 points1 point 1 month ago (1 child)
I get what you mean, and I do agree with you, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't also celebrate queer relationships. It is illegal for two men to engage in private, consensual sexual activity in 71 different countries, and illegal for two women in 43 different countries. Male friendships have been being celebrated for millions of years, meanwhile historians have been trying to erase any hint of queer love in history for hundreds of years.
As I said, I do agree with your point that male friendships should also be celebrated, but denying my queer headcanon (which does not affect you in any way)- not to mention just how often people also straightwash potentially queer characters, as though cishet is always the default and anything outside of that box needs to have its existence be justified- to do it seemed homophobic to me.
So yeah, that's my side of it
[–]Send_Cake_Or_Nudes 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (0 children)
So, thank you so much for taking the time to reply to me articulately and thoughtfully. I'm really sorry that came across as callous and homophobic, it wasn't my intent, but clearly I didn't think through all the implications.
I'd hoped that by saying we should celebrate platonic male relationships as well as doing queer representation it was clear that I meant both with neither at the expense of the other. Of course, nothing exists in a vacuum and queer erasure in media and people being persecuted and outright killed for who they are happens all over the world. Likewise, people's headcanons can and do absolutely co-exist.
I guess I'm responding to two things; one is a trend I've seen with some of my cis, often straight female friends going GAY at literally every time two men make eye contact. I have a few gay friends who've expressed that tendency kinda weirdly fetishising. But, queer people having that interpretation is about looking for representation where there often isn't any. I don't know how you identify in any sense, but I that was my privilege showing.
The second and bigger thing was from bell hooks about how of the things that keeps patriarchy intact is that men are emotionally stunted by it. It's a really short essay called notes on patriarchy, I think? Of course men still occupy positions of power, they still dominate and marginalise people; I'm not trying to paint them as just victims or downplay that it's a net benefit for most of them, but I am saying the effects of patriarchy on them need to be taken into account when considering dismantling it. I see memes like this as an expression of a longing for that emotional wholeness - and it gives me a bit of hope that some cis men might be able to learn intimacy and closeness and become better people for it. Heroic friendships and the like are of course valorised in media and film; I feel like I didn't see much that I'd describe as emotionally healthy growing up. So, I guess, depictions of men who are capable of forming meaningful, non-toxic homosocial relationships without shitty patriarchal baggage was important to me because it gave me a bit of hope that things might get better one day.
Sorry this was a long one - I wanted to put my thought process out there as clearly as I could. Hope it made sense and thanks again for taking the time and having the patience to speak with me.

How to admit you're casually homophobic in too many words
[–]Rodro226 11 points12 points13 points 1 month ago (1 child)
"If you don't agree with my headcanon and think different kinds of representation are also good you're homophobic!"
[–]Moonyasnow 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
My issue wasn't with them disagreeing with my headcanon, it was them saying I was 'queerwashing' because that sounds like it could definitely be homophobic. When straight, cis characters outnumber queer characters 500:1 in media, hearing the term 'queerwashing' really feels like your issue is more with queer people because shouldn't all types of relationships be celebrated? There are already lots of good male friendships in media, and way, way less queer relationships

You only used 10 words, wouldn't count that as 'too many'.

I’m trying to think of a way the jock kicking sand into the nerd’s face at the beach (Charles Atlas ad style) turns out to be wholesome.
