Bromosexuality . . . the topic of bromance is sort of
awkward. Most of the men I know . . .
have ever known . . . have this
irrational attitude towards homosexuality.
But now there is the social shift towards the acceptance of men and
their bromances . . .
they spend excessive amounts of time with each other
spurning their babes in the process . . . they do all the same things, like all
the same things and share feelings for each other that would make them gay . .
. you know, if they weren't straight.
A bromance , according to Mirriam-Webster Dictionary . . .
yes it’s actually in the dictionary . . . is defined as a close nonsexual friendship between men.
Bromances aren’t entirely new phenomena . . . although the
term is. Historically 18th century English
men were known for being demonstrative and expressive. And currently in Middle
Eastern countries it’s very common for male friends to hold hands in public.
In the not to distant past it would have been considered
unmanly to display physical affection like hugging and play wrestling. I’m used to men whose range of emotion ranges
from happy, drunk or cranky . . . psst, I just describe my hubby. Now you see these public displays of
affection. I don’t know . . . I guess its
okay but it’s just weird.
As far as I can tell, my hubby doesn’t have any particular BFF
or bromantic tendencies. Although, I
suspect at least one of his buddies may have a man-crush on him. It’s creepy but as long as it doesn’t start
to get too weird I’ll just continue to be secretly amused.
