Thom Dunn Excellent list topic.

Collective ignorance ?


message 4: by Kurt (new)

Kurt Keefner Why friendship between straight men only? Because that has its own special dynamic. Certainly nothing wrong with other kinds of friendship and I hope someone starts lists about them, but I was interested in male bonding without any sexual element.

Gets complicated. Tennyson regarded Arthur Hallem as the love of his life, but theirs was not a sexual relationship. "Gay/straight" is, IMO, an over-simplified dicotomy.
