One example that fits Becker’s claim is the scene in workaholics when the two guys are at the pool and keep getting boners over each other. They even make a few comments about each other’s physique that would be considered homosexual. Altogether, this scene is implying that they have an attraction for each other. This is really interesting because this scene is making homoeroticism acceptable, and humorous, but at the same time enhances their masculinity which is very contradicting according to heteronormative ideals. I think the only reason that this scene is socially acceptable is because for one, they are fighting over a female. The fact that they are getting boners over each other is not taken serious because the viewers know that they are actually fighting over a woman which makes them heterosexual and they are just joking around. The homosexual undertones probably aren’t even really analyzed by most people because the scene is so unrealistic and is meant to be funny. As in Becker’s article, he explains that the show Bromance is party acceptable because Jenner is looking for a friend – BUT one of the activities is merely finding women and that is an activity that two male friends bond over. Similarly with the gay man on the show, it is acceptable to Jenner because he would be helpful in finding women since women like to be friends with gay men according to him. This situation in the article and in workaholics both, in a way, present gay love as acceptable, but only under certain circumstances. If the two men on workaholics were acting that way when no females were involved, it wouldn’t be as funny or acceptable within gender norms. Also, humor is a big factor in the workaholics scene. Overall I think, which was part of Becker’s point, that scenes/shows like this are taking a step towards making homoeroticism/homosexuality more apparent in the media, but making a joke of it slows the progress of actually making it acceptable. Also, by only showing it under certain circumstances that enforce masculinity (like fighting over a female, etc.) also take away from this progress.
