I know the situation I'm about to describe has never happened to you but you've seen it many times and probably wondered who came up with this dumb idea. Have you ever gone to the movies and noticed two men who are obviously friends (if not more) sit with one seat in between them? I really want to know who created this unspoken rule that two men could not sit by each other in a dark theater without someone questioning their sexuality.
I've wanted to write about this for some time but I never did because I guess in the back of my mind I thought it was only an isolated incident. But I've noticed this odd behavior over the years at many different theaters primarily by black men and since questioning these men directly was not an option I'm relying on you for answers.
I welcome any theories you may have on this subject since I'm sure I'm not the only person who has witnessed this. Leave me a comment and I will explore your thoughts in a future post. Thanks!
