Man United! (you can say that again)

Men United FTW!

Here at ele, we’ve always been loud proud outspoken fans of equal rights for all. So in this day and age of Prop 8 and civil unions it’s nice to see such a thoroughly un-self conscious enthusiastic display of love.

Via Connexxion and Towleroad:

Manchester United captain Gary Neville planted a kiss on teammate Paul Scholes after Scholes scored the winning (and only) goal against Manchester City just 20 seconds before the end of the match-up.

Hundreds of comments enthusiastically debate the nature of the kiss—gay, bicurious, straight? No matter the opinion, the mainly commenters on these two gay sites were United in their judgement: who cares, it’s Hot! Cute!

As one commenter pointed out: “Italian men (straight) do this frequently (when they are good friends and relatives). It’s not a big deal. They also walk together arm in arm when they are strolling around and having a conversation and enjoying each others’ company. It’s common to see the men arm in arm and their wives or girlfriends arm in arm behind them and yakety yakking away.”
