Thanks — seeing him with Lane is both sexy and tender. It feels very natural to me. Religion is a factor, but I think the biggest part of homophobia is patriarchy — a dominance hierarchy with strict gender roles where anything construed feminine is seen as being less than. In other words, having sex with a man is what a woman does, so it’s weak and less. Meanwhile, it’s just whatever it actually is in that particular instance, in that particular relationship.
