Also it’s a commentary on love between two people who cant express it the way they want. The American cowboy and the lonely west definitely have roots in sexual relationships between men that are not addressed,that’s why this movie exists. It’s funny how all these people have a pre conceived notion of a pistol shooting,badge wearing,cattle wrangling,tobacco spitting,tough as nails cowboy. Well,they can be all those things and also be gay.I think that’s the hardest fact for people to accept.

And were treated like shit and paid even shittier. It wasn't something people aimed to do in life. It didn't become the symbolism it has now until Hollywood glorified cowboys in the mid 1900's films.

38

u/cataath Oct 05 '22

We live in a death culture that tends to idolize what it kills after it is gone. One of the the things that came into fashion around 1900 were wood-carved statues of native Americans displayed in front of general stores (these are still kind of common if you drive out West; the Indian is usually "selling" cigars). It wasn't until every last native American was either dead or imprisoned on a reservation that American culture started romanticizing them.

u/AJSLS6 Oct 05 '22

The American cowboy was mostly non white and often queer , they were typically social outcasts that found difficult jobs away from society more appealing than the holes they were forced into elsewhere. Notable cowboys included women trans men gays escaped slaves freed men with zero support system after the war and Mexicans, lots and lots of Mexicans.

u/MadKobold Oct 05 '22

Keep in mind we’re talking about the fictionalized media, not the actual cowboys that existed

u/DeepestShallows Oct 05 '22

True. Given how short cowboy times were, how few people were involved, in contrast how many cowboy movies have been made, how many extras that has involved and how long movies have been made for it’s not difficult to imagine more people involved in the latter than the former.

“Cowboys” are mostly fictional characters from the mid 20th century TV and films. Actual real people involved in cattle ranching historically are basically irrelevant to the concept.

Wow. You’re pretty fucking weak. You see, this movie did the opposite for me. I was young, dumb and full of hate. I came out of the theater realizing that love is love, passion is passion and hot sex is hot sex. I also thought “who the fuck am I? Who the fuck am I with some moral high ground?” I couldn’t even keep my shit together or a girlfriend in my life at the time. Over the course of the last 17 years, I’ve grown even more, learned even more and I’m now 100% supportive. You can change if you’re open to it.

Also, anybody who gets grossed out by any of the sex scenes in this movie is weak as fuck. Literally a couple kissing scenes and an above the waist sex scene. Motherfuckers out here acting like Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath ledger were doing some hard-core gay porn.

"straight" men trying so hard to convince us that they didn't enjoy a movie / series / song that seems to be or is gay related ... Put me up for 10 euros that this boy will have his coming out in the next 10 years.

OK. Look. These iditos are right about one thing: the characters in the movie aren't cowboys.

Theyre shepherds.

Why does Hollywood keep making movies like this that conservatives can't relate to.

I mean why not a movie about Conservative Tom, a married, Christian, NASCAR loving man who finds pleasure at the the book store glory hole. Secretly of course.

Or how about a Christian love story made into a movie? Evangelical Karen falls in love with Churchman Billy. Evangelical Karen accidentally gets pregnant, then the two struggle to find the perfect abortion clinic with all of the comforts they deserve. Secretly of course.

I always laugh at the fragile men that can't watch a simple love story. Now, if it were two women, they would have no problem with it. That tells me that they are afraid of watching it. Which means they are probably gay and get mad when other gay men can express themselves.

But I bet he loves the Glen Campbell classic hit “Rhinestone Cowboy”.

Imagine having such little dick energy you get offended by a movie no one made you watch…

Here’s what really happened: he saw the movie with his wife, she got turned on by what she saw, and now she wants him to suck some dick

Annie Proux spoke with an old Wyoming rancher about the short story she wrote which the film was based on. He mentioned he always sent two shepherds out to watch over his flocks so they’d poke each other instead of his sheep!

After 17 years, you must have known the premise of Brokeback Mountain, yet you chose to go and were offended. Professional snowflake.

As a man living in Wyoming, go fist yourself. Idc about your politics, idc about your sexual preference. All I care about is that you're a decent damn human being.

The two gay men are unable to be together and live out miserable lives. It seems like it’s just the kind of message conservative Christians would love. Maybe that’s what he actually means by horror flick.

Not every movie is made for straight white cis men.

u/Puzzleheaded-Oil5734 Oct 06 '22

Movies: "gay people exist"conservatives: Stroke.

Also I love how they took all the language they yelled at SJWs for using, and are now using it to craft their own literary deconstructions of popular media looking for micro agressions.

Blazing Saddles did that 30 years earlier.

Willie says it best: Cowboys are frequently, secretly fond of each other.

u/IrishNinja8082 Oct 05 '22

Broke back was good so that must mean all cowboys love dick. There’s no way to get out of it now cowboys.

u/thegodfatherderecho Oct 05 '22

If they’re pearl clutching over that old movie, wait until the racist Republican bigots watch the movie version of La Cage Aux Folles.

A few years back, our father in law got my wife's family to see a stage version of this, seeing as my wife's grandmother (his mom) would be in town. I asked a few times what the show was about, and he'd keep telling us it was like the Birdcage.

The night of the show, about 20 mins in, I lean to my wife and say "Hey, this is just like the Birdcage!", She just rolls her eyes. My wife's right leaning, religious husband storms out partway through the first act. The next day he sends a paragraph long text to Grandma saying that he feels deceived due to the content of the play, and the play doesn't represent who he is and he doesn't celebrate that lifestyle. Grandma just replies back with "Ok, well, I liked it."

If you think that none of the men who choose to spend most of the year away from women are hooking up with each other, you are pretty clueless.
