    Oh, and going back to the OP. Maybe that's their idea of humor. Genitalia and whatnot.
    +1 oh and did you know one of the highest group for homeless teens are LGBT? because their parents kicked them out, yeah I'm sure its a choice. because, I mean who wants to be homeless?

    The choices we make can help to form our ideals of beauty, but I don't believe anyone directly chooses whom they're attracted to. Attraction is normally spontaneous: it comes on you all at once, without your consent, and you do with it what you will. But that's a whole separate issue from what this thread is about. I think there are a lot plausible explanations for why straight males feign homosexuality. The most obvious one is that they have elements of homosexuality in them, and rather than bottle these up and hide them, they choose to throw them out in the open and make light of them. In this way, they can disown and discredit these feelings: these feelings are not to be taken seriously, they're just a joke that we're all in on. On that same vein, I think these behaviors serve a bonding purpose. Not only is it a sexual behavior (sexual behavior always containing a bonding element) but it gets people laughing and makes them feel that they've shared, and therefore soothed, an insecurity.

    Vulgarity is part of low culture.

    And low culture can best be understood in relation to high culture.

    High culture sets us free while low culture diminishes us.

    Low culture is extremely profitable. So it is no surprise it is extremely popular.

    And if you want to be popular, if you want to belong, you adopt the manners and mores of low culture.

    So low culture is piped at us from every direction - from television, from the pop music industry, from the pornography industry, from the drug industry and from youth culture.

    Low culture is big business.

    But at its heart is a hatred of high culture.

    At its heart low culture harbours a deep ressentiment towards high culture, and so takes every opportunity to birsmirch it.

    The constant and never ending reference to, "Ass", here, and now a whole thread devoted to, "Ass", demonstrate the passion to dirty high culture.

    Low culture knows it is dirty, it even thinks sexuality is dirty, so it is on a compulsive and never ending quest to make high culture as dirty as itself.

    And how successful it has been.

    I've got some friends that do the same exact thing. They're also homophobic to the core. I don't know what it is, they don't even talk about girls. Maybe they're afraid of themselves.

    i see no problem of mooning one another for however long you want. i mean if they want to do it, then what's the problem? it's in the middle of nowhere, who's going to get bothered?

    personally i'm almost careless of a person's gender, and i think it should be of the least concern to anyone what another person's gender or sexuality is. i'd even go so far as to say that i would consider both males and females for a platonic relationship.

    both genders essentially come from the same asexual being, and differ only on their dominant hormones. this serves as reason enough for me to believe in equality between genders and in that you should be able to love whoever you want to love. it also serves as enough reason that e.g. gender transsexualism is rather superficial, but that is entire another topic.

    my point to all of this is: what does it matter? i see it as playful behavior between males, why does it have to have a deeper meaning? it could be that some of them are homosexual, it could also be that they just don't care. in either case, it's nobody's business.

    I was fairly bothered by it. Both by the awkwardness of it and that the time frame was between 2-3 am, when I was trying to sleep.

    Nothing has to have a deeper meaning. Nothing has to matter. Their business doesn't have to be of concern to people. But the purpose of the post is to put meaning, matter, and concern into the situation, much like any other post on TypeC. It'd be uninteresting to assume a neutral stance.

    it was your choice to go with them in the first place, wasn't it?

    any thread where a neutral stance is possible is uninteresting from the beginning. i see no point in the creation of this one other than to rant.

    It absolutely was my conscience choice to do so. Though I am confident enough to claim my intuition is well-developed, I cannot do the same regarding actual divination.

    When you refer to the "point of creation," do you speak of your intent or mine?

    And back to the original topic:
    To sum up your rendition of events transpired, this was normal male behavior?

They have sent pictures of their own genitalia to one another to incite a laugh. I fear one day the "playful bickering" will escalate up to anal sex, with the recipient shouting, "oh man, you got me good!"
    From mooning to spooning? Like...

    A: *moon*
    B: *moons back*
    A: Oh yeah? Take this! *jumbo moon*
    B: That's hilarious! But... *super moon with pants at the ankles*
    A: ?!?!
    B: What? Hey, you're facing the wrong way! We'll see about that! *THAT'S NO MOON! THAT'S A...*
    A: !!!!
    B: Ouch! Hey, what?! Get that outta there!
    A: *huff, huff, grunt*
    B: *sigh*
    A: I got you good, bro!


    I'm not sure, if you take a video camera on the next camping trip, will that make things better or worse?
