When They Come Out, They are Always Naked.
by Regis Boff
There are no accidental friends. Love is the only random emotion. Love, when it fades, is always a little bit embarrassing. It becomes that parent you see naked when you are little. It is a circumstance best forgotten quickly by both sides.
Friendships between men are in serious trouble now that you can no longer discriminate, even in your attachments because the other person might be homosexual. We are very aware that this gay freedom applies a certain rigid presumption to all guy stuff.
Women are titillated mercilessly by lesbian liaisons. Straight men mostly can’t even speculate on what men would do to other men. We are not permitted to think this way because our mothers, fathers and Jesus keep a spare room inside our minds for life, and when they come out, they are always naked.
