Black Men Cuddle on Subway, Web Hits Panic Button
The image was snapped of two young men apparently on Atlanta’s MARTA and the Twitpic is entitled “No Excuse: I Don’t Give a F-ck How Sleepy You Are.” So far, the image has 12,400+ views and has produced three pages of mostly cruel, homophobic and hateful comments. There are dozens more comments across Twitter and the Twitpic has migrated to gay-baiting black gossip blogs. One perennial gay-baiting blogger has slammed the two young men as “homo-thugs”, ranted about HIV/AIDS and complained that “it’s become nearly impossible to distinguish heterosexual men from down low thugs.” Are “down-low” thugs hugged up on public transit? Probably not …
It’s a very sweet and innocent photo. According to the comments, it seems the young men’s primary offense, in addition to seemingly being gay, is that they are “normal looking” and apparently in love.
DAMN GUYS. LET PEOPLE CUDDLE. FUCKING SHIT.
That pic is fucking cute and people disappoint me.
This picture is nothing short of adorable. Why people freak out is literally beyond me.
Also, why launch into a rant about the spread of AIDS over a cute picture like this? Gay men cuddling is not the same as gay men having anal sex. The reason there’s a higher risk of AIDS in gay men is due mostly to anal sex (which, if I understand correctly, is MUCH easier to transmit STDs through than M/F penetration or oral sex - anal is much less protected). And, to reiterate, this is not a picture of gay men having unprotected anal sex where one partner is afflicted by AIDS. This is a picture of two guys cuddling on a subway, probably not even thinking about sex of any kind, just happy to be in each other’s presence.
Get your fucking minds out of the gutter once in a while, people.
If I was tired. I’d do this. Not even gay. DGAF.
oh, for real? this is a motherfucking thing? i remember this photo coming up in my dash fucking months ago and i thought it was gorgeous and so did every other non-douchelord on the internet. ugh, smash.
I saw this at the start of last year with the caption “bros before hoes”
I giggled and saved it
The kind of response that the image is suddenly getting is both disturbing and sickening
Its just a nice picture where, just for a moment, the guards of hyper masculinity have fallen. The original picture gives me hope for a moment, and the response dashes it
