Anonymous asked: what should I do when someone tries to argue that men are capable of having close friendships why does everything have to be gay? I mean obviously men can have close friendships but sometimes you just gotta have representation god damn it

joolabee:

tell the party that’s interested in narratives about close male friendships that dare to redefine masculinity by bravely allowing two men to become intimate as they never have before without their dicks touching to check out any and all of the following narratives:

I Love You Man, Boston Legal, The Odd Couple, House MD, Boy Meets World, Psych, Scrubs, Lethal Weapon, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Wayne’s World, Toy Story, Star Trek, The Lord of the Rings, literally any Edgar Wright film, Top Gun, Step Brothers, Hawaii Five-0 (the reboot and the original), Supernatural, White Collar, every Sherlock Holmes story ever depicted, Due South, Californication (they even share a Not Gay kiss in this one!!! progressive and cool!!!), The Shawshank Redemption, Batman and Robin, Superbad, and when they’ve exhausted these, call me back and I’ll certainly be waiting with more!!!!!

it’s just so unfortunate that so many nuanced narratives about the delicate bond between male friends are sullied by people trying to make it gay. not that we’re homophobic, or anything. but masculinity is very fragile, and we just want to show how many boundaries it’s capable of pushing as long as both parties are staunchly heterosexual. nothing threatens masculinity like a dick in the mouth, that’s for sure, so let’s make sure it’s only heavily suggested subtextually before pairing both heroes off with substantially less interesting and less complex women whose entire existence as characters is dependent upon their relationships with these men

then maybe ask your friend to please list 5 mainstream narratives that include a homosexual relationship at its center, not including Brokeback Mountain. give them a prize if they can manage to name 3.

but yeah. frustrating. why does everything have to be gay?

GUYS GUYS GUYS

Pleeeaase start using this website, https://www.ecosia.org, it’s basically a search engine that plants trees every time you use it, how beautiful is that? It’s pretty much the same as google only like a million times more ethical- 80% of their income goes toward tree planting programs in Brazil. It’s totally free and there’s an app available for IOS too, so you really don’t have an excuse… Now go and help the environment my darlings!

"Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors."
— Andrew Boyd (via a-femmefatalist)

"Here, taste this. Too sweet?"
"Dean, as important as it is to act the part, we’re supposed to be investigating."
"I know, I know, just…humor me, okay? Been tryin’ to perfect this recipe for weeks."
