The other day we saw a random Bob smackin’ the ass of the guy in front of him at the store. They clearly knew each other.. well we hope they did.
That act immediately made us think of when we were in middle school. Those crazy awkward years filled with braces and baby fat. When we first saw guys hugging and yelling “Love you bro” across the hallway. Back then we thought it was a little strange, now..it’s like second nature. If we don’t hear most guys sharing their love affairs with their bros it’s almost assumed that they’re really not great friends.
This love that men in this century share is not an act of homosexuality, but rather of a strong bond and a secure sense of their own sexuality. Don’t get us wrong, there is a limit that can lead to an extreme case of a typical douche-bag, but that’s not where were going with this.
We just think it’s interesting how the term “macho” has changed. For starters, that word is not used much anymore, but when it was the first image that popped into your head was definitely an image of:
In this decade, that word has been dismissed and the meaning of strong and manly plus the look of guys doesn’t even seem to matter. Which, in all reality is great. Now, we just get the Bros, with “bro love” and “bro touch” (Urban Dictionary that one for a laugh).
The point is, even though the “bro” culture may not be as manly or socially acceptable to the older generations, we Betties accept our Bros and our Bobs just the same.
Love you all,
