1) It’s vaguely homophobic
2) If anything other than men trying to out-macho each other strikes you as romance, your perspective on manhood is fucked up
I have members of my family who are LGBTQ. I have many friends who are *closer than family* who are LGBTQ.
I am every bit as affectionate with them as I am with my straight family and friends.
It would be disgraceful not to be.
They’re saying affection between men is wrong.
And to that I say, grow. the. fuck. up.
Seriously, grow the fuck up.
