There's a simple explanation why, at least for males, this >>116075299
is ok, while making steps away from this and towards homosexuality is threatening, as is evidenced by low-key seethe. Note how recent homosexual relationships portrayal is absolutely canted towards lesbians - there wasn't a single series recently without them. I'd claim that this is not because there's promotion of per se lesbianism going on, but because this is as far a step towards admitting homosexuality as can be made now, or maybe ever. Going further down this path and into male homosexuality is treading into the zone of male reproductive behaviors, and this zone will never change, because for males the behaviors of dominance, aggression, violence are all tightly woven into sexuality. It's not bad, it's just natural and will not change, because it is facilitated by millions of years of evolution and fighting over reproduction partners, all underpinned by fundamental biochemistry.
To put it short - associating with male homosexuals critically threatens your status as a male, often to the point of mortal danger from another males. This was always the case for men, it was never the case for women. This will also remain so.
