This one's been sitting on my "to post" list all week.
The film, of course, seeks to advance the fiction that "gay" romantic love is just like the normal variety except with different genders. But that ignores, for one thing, the terrible damage that sodomy (i.e., anal sex) exacts on the body. That's why many male initiates into homosexual sex get high on drugs or alcohol first -- to dull the pain (and the shame) of this unnatural and sinful behavior.Yes, Peter LaBarbera is now an expert on bottoming.
If Brokeback were honest, one of the guys involved in the scene depicting the crime against nature (how sodomy was once regarded back when men were men) would be howling in pain louder than a coyote, rather than just rolling over and going to sleep. But, hey, we wouldn't want to spoil the cultural elites' pro-"gay" party by telling Americans about the pain and consequences stemming from homosexual behavior, would we?
I don't get the attack on anal sex, especially since I'm betting that the vast majority of anal sex that happens in the world is heterosexual, just by sheer numbers. But whatever, at least we learn that Peter's bottomed before (or that he's a particulary mean top, not lubing up).
I also like his blanket statement about "male initiates". I remember when I lost my bottoming V-Card. It involved the phrase "Is it in yet?", which doesn't seem like that bad of a question when you think the answer's "no". But the answer was "yes", and, well, wackiness ensued, and I now have a funny little story.
