This is a video clip made in an Israeli army base. Are these men gay or straight?
Here is an example of “gay shame:” Seducing a straight guy.
This blog was conceived as a response to the multitude of gay identity blogs populating the blogosphere, blogs that take a comfortable and stable gay identity for granted. One of the main goals of this blog is to destabilize the gay/straight dichotomy. A second goal is to explore what remains of male male erotic practices that defy an equality that is today mandated by gay and straight people alike, meaning that lovers gay or straight should seek a romantic relationship that values equality in age, education, social background and in power relations in general. So today, the mainstream gay culture favors gay couples in monogamous relationships where equality rules. This is a major part of gay pride: if one wants to be proud as a gay man, one has to be in a monogamous relationship with another gay man, even marry that man, so as to resemble one’s straight counterpart and refrain from posing a threat to the mainstream demand for monogamy. This blog will explore what is left of the rest of past gay behavior that cannot be included in “gay pride.”
