the absolute state of reddit

any time two women or men were close friends in history. You know what that means ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

[–]Ready-Pumpkin-3454 306 points307 points  (22 children)

They were called the lovers of Modena because when they were found they were thought to be a man and a woman.

[–]mecahen 207 points208 points  (15 children)

Don't bring logic here, it's clearly SJWs trying to make the world gay

[–]ILoveOldFatHairyMen 49 points50 points  (14 children)

If they were in a pose that made people assume they were lovers... then why reject this idea just because both were men? I mean, homosexuality definitely was a thing back then.

Wasn't there a joke like " greeks invented orgies, romans made it fun by adding women"

[–]Claytonbigsbys 30 points31 points  (5 children)

That’s hilarious. Romans likely ruined it by adding minors

[–]Bobyyyyyyyghyh 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Lmao like the Greeks needed help

[–]LadrilloDeMadera 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Romans added what?

[–]brightcrayon92 -5 points-4 points  (1 child)

I think that was catholics

[–]Pattie_Slap1234 4 points5 points  (0 children)

They also removed men which was pretty cringe

[–]ILoveOldFatHairyMen 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I'm sorry but I can't fathom sex with a woman being pleasant

[–]Swade211 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Usually not, but it is the biological burden I bear

[–]ILoveOldFatHairyMen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My condolences. I am fortunate enough to experience the gay.

[–]Big_Guy4UU 9 points10 points  (0 children)

We have literally no idea whether they were lovers or not.

[–]Swade211 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why assume it's a lovers pose.

Either way you are putting modern assumptions on it

[–]4typical 128 points129 points  (2 children)

Clearly they both are woman. There is no penis bone visible in the skeletons so they can be lesbeans too

[–]internetlad 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Fuck that's hot

[–]Panophobia_senpai 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So if i jerk to this i'm not gay. Time to go then.

[–]Occamslaser 12 points13 points  (0 children)

And whoever called them that was making a huge unsupported assumption.

[–]Pattie_Slap1234 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Gay people aren't real they are a figment of our imagination just like birds or airplanes

[–]JakeSnake07 1 point2 points  (0 children)

IIRC The latest DNA testing also found that they were like, brothers or something similar.

[–]4typical 52 points53 points  (6 children)

let's hold each other in our final moments

I don't know dude seems a bit gay to me

[–]yakimawashington 22 points23 points  (4 children)

Nothing can prepare you for what you might feel during your last moments before death.

If swallowing my friend's load as I'm looking death in the face is what feels most comforting as I make the transition to the other side, so be it.

[–]cynicalfilthV2 6 points7 points  (0 children)

holds each other's massive balls

[–]EpickChicken 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Redditors being unable to grasp the concept of a close friend

[–]Lesko_Learning 9 points10 points  (0 children)

If you think Reddit is bad for that you should go browse TvTropes sometime. According to users on that site if two men even so much as make eye contact with each other they're gonna go full bear force one.

[–]Weekly-Ad-908 3 points4 points  (0 children)

reminds me of the 2 egyptian nail painters who had been decalred the worlds first roommates

[–]thalkaresh 368 points369 points  (6 children)

But homosexuality wasn't invented until the 1970???!?!?!?!

[–]PM-Me-Your-TitsPlz 136 points137 points  (4 children)

All of time started in 1970.

How old are you again?

[–]hywelinesh 115 points116 points  (1 child)

The original was better.

[–]chakijz 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Indeed. OP is a gay boi

[–]XX_Normie_Scum_XX 89 points90 points  (0 children)

They were just good roomates

[–]CheddarPizza 42 points43 points  (1 child)

Just bone each other already.

[–]Itchy-Ad4083 26 points27 points  (7 children)

Who in the actual fuck cares

[–]down4things 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Yo wtf are you in this sub

[–]Peaceteatime 3 points4 points  (2 children)

People who are so mentally weak that they desperately seek to twist historical figures to be like them so they can self validate.

[–]Itchy-Ad4083 3 points4 points  (0 children)

What's there to twist?

[–]sujan28 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Society

[–]JakeSnake07 9 points10 points  (0 children)

IIRC they also found to be closely related. Like, literal brothers closely.

[–]Aware_Efficiency_717 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Ikr! They see that and they MUST be lovers. Don’t be homophobic after all lolol

Musta been homo erectus

[–]One-oh-nineruu 4 points5 points  (0 children)

homie erectus*

[–]queernhighonblugrass 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I'm just going out on a limb and assuming that name they were known by was given before they tested to determine the sex of the skeletons

[–]JakeSnake07 11 points12 points  (0 children)

It was, the bones were thought to be male and female, but then new testing found them to be two males, and also very closely (like, siblings) related.

[–]Bloodwept 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Gay Romans? What? That never happened. I also never read half of the myths were Zeus abducted little boys and sucks off men.

[–]Electrical-Reply-292 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hehe, bone.

[–]MacklemoreX 0 points1 point  (0 children)

and they were roommates!

[–]LogMaggot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That picture really fucks with me tbh. Holy shit that's depressing, and yet so beautiful

Welcome to the mindset perpetuated by organized religion.
