Bromance

There's nothing wrong with a couple of straight guys doing gay stuff as long as it's part of a "bromance", according to Big G and MC.

  2. There ain't nothin' wrong with it IF it's a bromance. And if it's more than a bromance than there's somethin' wrong. The vid is homophobic.

  5. 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 soulmates 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 of women and 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 women.......

    ......and the world will be a much, much better place because of it.

  7. This is not homophobic. It's funny.

  8. In fact the "you went all gay" is a spoof on the movie Tropic Thunder.

  10. THAT'S the joke Marcus. They're pointing out the absurdity of your point. Satire much?

  11. I liked it- and I hate Rap......Thought it was clever.....and on a side note- maybe str8 guys are more open to Bromance..ie: Sparticus etc etc

  12. Rick, perhaps once you could cite studies by credible sociologists that support your lunatic hypothesis.

  13. I am the Master of satire. The "joke" in this video is that they're in a bromance and should not be mistaken to be a couple of faggots; a concept Andy apparently finds "hot".

  14. Explain the homophobia, please. It's totally gay.

  15. Since you asked.

    It’s the insufferable, overused-before-it-even-achieved-ubiquity buzzword of the moment: “Bromance.” Supposedly—and if so, fittingly—coined within the insecure macho skateboarding subculture of the mid-Nineties, the term is loaded with a defensive irony it vainly pretends to preemptively strike. By linking male friendship with romance the neologism at once mocks the “gayness” of open male affection and the perceived “gayness” of open male affection. It’s the perfect passive-aggressive salvo for the enlightened liberal homophobe.

    I’m surprised more people haven’t called out the rampant idiocy of this word. “Bromance” doesn’t suggest our culture has become more comfortable about male bonding; instead its euphemistic qualities suggest a greater sense of embarrassment and self-consciousness about it.

  16. not homophobic at all... they're not saying it's wrong to be gay, they're just saying it's ok to do gay things even if you're not gay (and just in a bromance)... people assume and read into things too much... it's a funny video, get a sense of humor...

  17. @Marcus Bachmann Man, you are so, so wrong--and I suspect the reason you are is that, because you are so accustomed to the "gay"/"straight" paradigm and specifically to the "gay" culture" that is part of that artificial paradigm, you cannot lift yourself up to 30,000 feet and understand what is happening.

    If you honestly think that "straight" men of the younger generation are not more emotionally available to each other and expressive towards each other than previous generations, then you are just not paying attention.

    That greater emotional freedom will naturally, eventually, lead to the desire, in many cases, to give physical expression to these newfound emotions....and that is what this video addresses in a light-hearted way.

    Is there any need to continue to draw lines, either emotionally or sexually, between men? That is what the whole "boundaries" satire is about in this case--they don't really resolve the question; they just leave it open.....and that is how change occurs--a transition from the certainty that boundaries should exist and where the line should be drawn.....to a breaking down of all boundaries.

    And that little vignette is a snapshot in time of where things are now....we are in the midst of a process of change, which is why it is often hard for people to get their bearings and really understand what is happening.

    And there will be just as many "gay" men threatened by the change we are witnessing as "straight" men are....because change always undercuts people's sense of security.

    But the change is occurring, no question about it....and its effects on us all can only be positive.

  18. "Hey - I rhymes..."

    I love it!

  19. Opps -

    "Hey - It rhymes..."

  20. "it's ok to do gay things"

    Can somebody define "gay things" for me? I have no idea what you mean by that. Really, I don't, unless it is reference to the culture of effeminacy I originally referred to...

    Posted by: Rick | Feb 23, 2012 1:19:12 PM


  21. So you use the name Marcus Bachmann and make invalid arguments claiming that two clearly gay-friendly guys are homophobic. Is that supposed to be funny, clever, ironic, or something else? Because it just seems damn stupid.

  22. Your binoculars are backwards. They're making fun of their denial.

  23. Just a rap reworking of the old but very funny short "Paul and Frank Are Not Gay" on YouTube--but that one took it to its logical end:
