to see two middle-eastern, muslim men being intimate and soft with one another, to see them having sex with such deep affection… and to see all of it, none of it censored…. was really fucking important to me.
It's kind of weird how....a man and woman can be told by someone that they likely have a crush on each other and without any context many people who saw this would believe it. Hardly anyone would think, "oh no, this man and woman are just friends." Replace this with two men and the knee jerk reaction is "They gotta be friends, it's no way they're deeply in love." even with a lot of prior evidence of the two men being very intimate and close. It's..a shame. It's why Destiel suffers.
