I really like it when examples of subversive masculinity are found in public forums. Take this video I found on myspace: A (VERY handsome man) in his underwear, working a runway like there's no tomorrow (and displaying all his masculine goods). Add the fact that he is in one of those hyper-macho, hyper-homophobic institutions (hello, army and navy) and you have the most titillating mix: a real man.
Because real men are NOT those who announce themselves to world as 'straight-acting' (honey, if you're 'acting' you're a fraud) and are looking for 'normal' guys (as if anything out of the norm would not be NORMal). Idiots. And I keep finding those who measure everything and everybody with the seven inches they have between their legs (which are good for a dick, but not to measure the world, mind you).
Those are the real fags to me. Those who cannot get in their heads that men come in all shapes and colors and manners. And that even though in all their right when they tell the world who they want to fuck, somehow make less of themselves on the eyes of all of those who do not conform to or confirm their expectations.
Somehow I pity them. Because trapped in their masculinity closet fail to see the world at large.
