“The media’s the most powerful entity on Earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power. Because they control the minds of the masses.”— Malcolm X (via thelittlephilosopher)
Why is a guy deemed as ‘gay’ if he happens to find something sexually appealing in another man? Like, if another man says to another male, “Oh you look nice today,” or something relatively close to that why are they deemed as gay? A high percentage of people’s first thoughts would be “oh my god, said person is gay!”
If I called another female attractive no one would give it a second thought. They’d think to themselves -if they even thought about the matter at all- ‘She’s right, she is attractive’ or ‘Oh God no, she’s gross. What the fuck is wrong with Julia?’ No would would assume that I was bisexual, or a lesbian (well usually).
So why is it so wrong for a man to compliment another man on his physical appearance?
