There's always been a lot of homoeroticism going on in the media, even before Brokeback Mountain made it's award-winning debut. Glad to know I'm not the only one who thinks so:

He's my addition to this list, in no particular order:

1. Richard and Edward from Daimos
We never noticed it as kids, but if you'll watch the series again as an adult, you'll notice that there's a lot of tension going on. Edward hates Erica, Edward hates women, Edward's always looking for Richard...

2. Harry and Draco from Harry Potter
Thousands of fanfic writers can't be wrong! Too bad we see less of Draco in the later books. Maybe Harry got tired of him and is trying to work his charms on Ron...

3. Heero and Duo of Gundam Wing
Relena is nothing. Duo is way prettier, but Zechs is the prettiest of them all. Then there's that brokeback mecha scene between Treize and Wufei in one of the first episodes. Whoo!

4. Kurama and Hiei of YuYu Hakusho
That's Dennis and Vincent of Ghostfighter to most people. A lovelier pair I have never seen. And just how macho can a rose whip be, anyway?

5. Mulder and Skinner from The X-Files
I can hear the Mulder/ Krycek fans taking up arms at this statement. But admit it, there was a sort of tension there, in a homoerotic employee-boss kind of way.

6. Clark and Lex from Smallville
As hot as Lana was, she was just a beard to Clark's growing feelings for his pal Lex. Their eventual falling apart is just proof of what happens when you don't show the one you love your true feelings.

7. Grissom and Warrick from CSI Las Vegas
Warrick was always Grissom's favorite CSI. I wonder why. Must be those lovely green eyes. Admittedly, I'd much rather see Nick and Warrick get it on but Nick seems to be too straight (or too in-denial) for anything at this point. Maybe in the future...

8. Mr. Burns and Smithers from The Simpsons
How can you not look at them and not think gay?

9. Itchy and Scratchy from The Simpsons
Can you spell BDSM?

10. Suboshi and Ameboshi from Fushigi Yuugi
Twins. Identical twins. Prettyboy identical twins. Mmmm. So is this incest or narcissism?

In other news, I had to watch Manay Po for work. Not a bad movie, if you're in the mood for comedic nonesense and complete and utter suspension of disbelief. What to look out for is Luis Allandy and Polo Ravales as two straight-acting gay lovers. The crowd loved them! I loved them! I think they should play straight-acting, closeted gay men all the time because for some reason, it pushes their hotness factor up a notch, don't ask me why. I think everyone was waiting for their kissing scene, which, alas, was cut out to meet MTRCB standards. How weird that the MTRB let them keep the bed scene and the whorehouse scene, but had them lose the gay kissing scene. I'll never understand adults.
