Fellas is it gay to convene? Because you're coming together, as in one body or for a public purpose ☕️😔😳

Guys is it gay to arouse? Because you're stimulating feelings. 😔😳

also I always forget that there's apparently a subplot where the main character's dad doesn't own any pants

I can't help but imagine a rewrite where, instead of resolving the conflict by resolving his relationship to his "uncool" nerd buddy and, by proxy, his own nerdiness, what if the protagonist had to resolve his relationship with a woman and, by proxy, his own masculinity
