EMO BOY ON BOY, OH MY

So it looks like FLA - you know, Fake Lesbian Action (girls making out in order to procure male attention) has finally jumped the shark. Yay. Emo Boy on Boy (EBOB) is much more fun! Google image search ‘emo boys’ and your eyes will be met with swathes of befringed boys kissing, or get specific and sign up for a Livejournal group dedicated to the phenonomen to ensure that goodies such as these photo collections and the video below are delivered to your browser daily. Still not sure what I’m talking about? Check the urbandictionary definition. Been there, bought the t-shirt, lost it at the laundrette? Then sign the petition (what are they petitioning for? EBOB to become compulsory for males aged 15-23? Those without fringes and eyeliner to be forcibly made over?) that advocates that ‘Emo boys kissing is the sexiest thing eva!!!!!’ And! Lest you think this is merely another underground fad, EBOB also sneaks into the gaming world, where Rockstar Games’ controversial new title Bully joins The Sims in letting two boys kiss like it ain’t no thang. (Which it, er, isn’t, though raving anti-games lawyer Jack Thompson doesn't seem to agree.)

And finally, via the BoysKissing LJ community:



This video’s got it all. The way it seems to start as a joke, but they slowly begin to get into it: the way the girlfriend’s hand keeps grabbing the guy’s arm as though to reassert his heterosexuality and her possession of him, despite appearances to the contrary; the way the boy rearranges his fringe each time they break off from kissing; the way the one in the hat gradually seems to be assuming the dominant role; the way, when it’s finally over, the hat one tries to get another emo to get off with "Jeff", and he's like 'uh, not right now.' Adorable. Hurrah for heteroflexiblity, the influence of manga / yaoi on teen culture, or whatever it is that's led to this increase in EBOB action in the 'straight' community. I'm off to sign the petition. Seeya!
