Hop Against Homophobia Article #5 - BLMorticia

And day number 5. Almost done with the hop! It's been tons of fun too. Here is a post by wicked sis, BLMorticia. She always shocks you with her humor!


* * * *

Greetings fans. Okay so, guys, you’re sitting there with your hot wife, girlfriend, or both… *snicker* and you’re watching this great movie. No, it’s not a porn but it might have a scene you didn’t expect to see, something you weren’t looking for when you scanned the backside cover reading about the flick. What is it?

Ahh! No it couldn’t be! Its, its’ A HOMOEROTIC SCENE! Wha? What’s that?

Ooh you know, it’s a gay scene, you know two men kissing, groping, maybe one drops to his knees like he’s about to give the other a blow job? *laughs* “Fuck no! I can’t watch this!” Quickly you get up, so fast you almost trip and fall on your face. You storm out the room and into the kitchen to have a drink!


This hilarious scene is what Shar experienced when she watched the movie Dorian Grey with her husband. 

Oh boy! What did you think was going to happen? Did you think this little scene would do something to your brain and make you suddenly want to be with a man instead of your hot girl(s)? Good grief!

The article where Shar mentions this as well as a HILARIOUS tweet from one of my fave writers Daisy Harris, made me want to write this blogpost. She tweeted about her book, Built For It, which is on my buylist. Her message, which was tongue in cheek, “My book is so hot, it turned my husband gay!” #falseadvertising. A little memo for those who don’t Tweet. #hashtag might get people to notice the message more because it’ll trend. It certainly caught my eye and I let her know how funny that was. Then I got to thinking, is that the fear straight men experience when they don’t want to watch a gay scene or read a book that has homoerotica?

Sounds silly doesn’t it? Like it’s some kind of plague or something and as Shar points out in her article, these are the same men who say they aren’t homophobic. Oh but you are, man! Dammit what’s a phobe?

Anyway, no offense to Shar’s man and many across the globe, or fuck maybe you need to be offended.  If you think seeing these kind of scenes are an issue, you may need to get a clue. There’s nothing wrong with seeing two men or women kiss on screen or reading it in a book. It’s quite hot actually!

Doesn’t turn you on? Okay, that’s your prerogative if it doesn’t but really? Must you run away from it? C’mon! No big deal. “I just don’t want to see that.” Yeah Shar feels that way when a slasher scene comes up in a horror movie. It’s a fear of what she see’s, that my dears is phobic. Same thing applies to you men who runaway from a movie PHOBIC, say it with me, P-H-O-B-I-C! Homophobic.

Are you offended? Oh well. It’s just my opinion. I can understand if you don’t want to watch a porn with nonstop male male action, it might be a bit much but a kissing scene? C’mon. It makes your girl hot! Most women love the homoerotic! She quivers and curls her toes when reading a BL love scene, gents. Get with it. This is good for you in the long run, isn’t it? You get more sex if she’s aroused. DUH!

We’ll talk more about that later. Right now, leave me your rants. Why are you so afraid? Do you feel it will turn you gay? And oh shudder, if it did, is it a problem that it turned you on? Hell, not for me. It’ll make me love you more!

* * * *

Ah BL you really don't care about pissing people off do you?

Well anyway, if you're not too offended, comment to win for this contest!

Ha! I wasn't offended in the least, BL, even having a husband who in his earlier years would have fallen into the uncomfortable camp if there were guy-guy action happening. Thankfully he's become enlightened over the years.

It's like I read on a different hop post, the more people are exposed to things, the more they can relate and be comfortable with the realities they didn't know about. I know my husband doesn't get attraction to guys, but he knows what falling in love with someone feels like, and he knows what it is to want be comfortable in your own body. So, now he's a champion for that, too.

That's one of the things I love about the hop, people being inspired to be aware of what's happening and to be vocal about creating change.

Thanks for sharing!

My husband has come a long way since our daughter came out, but he would walk out. I asked him why and he said he does not like it. that is all. I would not have a problem with the scene.

My hubby is fine with me wanting to write it, but not so much with the other "stuff". (Yep, he'd find a need for another beer or something too if he had to watch the movie) And yet when I talk about it and try to tell him about the research I'm doing, he just laughs.
