In some of the subcultures Ward studied, straight MSM were able to reinterpret homosexual identity as actually strengthening their heterosexual identities. So it was with Silva’s subjects as well — they found ways to cast their homosexual liaisons as reaffirming their rural masculinity. One way they did so was by seeking out partners who were similar to them. “This is a key element of bud-sex,” writes Silva. “Partnering with other men similarly privileged on several intersecting axes—gender, race, and sexual identity—allowed the participants to normalize and authenticate their sexual experiences as normatively masculine.” In other words: If you, a straight guy from the country, once in a while have sex with other straight guys from the country, it doesn’t threaten your straight, rural identity as much as it would if instead you, for example, traveled to the nearest major metro area and tried to pick up dudes at a gay bar.
TL;DR: Sometimes, stereotypical “redneck’ dudes/White Suburbanites ass-fuck one another/suck one another off, etc. Then they go home to their wives and children, and (most likely) bitch and whine about the “gay agenda”.
Now, I’m definitely no fan of “gay-bashing”, but….I can’t help thinking that the world would be just a bit better if some of these slimy, hypocritical, closet-cases ended up dead, and stuffed into somebody’s crawlspace.
Well, ,maybe not that, but….in some ways, these “not-gay-but-sometimes-we-suck-each-other-off-out-in-the barn”-types are the most “faggy”, of all:
