Alrighty then.  I thought it was a guy and a girl (Ron seemed to be receiving), and the flashback scene also seemed to reveal as much...and would explain why he was so defensive about the whole gay thing.

no problem. of course there were quite a few scenes showing him in all levels of debauchery and possible instances of swapping, sloppy seconds or thirds or at least simultaneous action near another male. that was the lifestyle of the macho rodeo man and oil worker.

but I think it was clear that he was straight, that's why it was such a shock when he was diagnosed, as he and his friends, and most of the world probably thought back then... "that's that homo disease. I ain't no f*ggot"

which of course makes his 'transformation' and reluctant acceptance of others infected more heart-warming.

If anyone knows how to "turn hearts away from God", it's Christians.

McConaughey should leave it to the professionals.

Don't get me wrong--I agree completely.  It just seemed as though a moment of drug-addled buggery might have been a plausible, regrettable moment in his past.

Mark me down as another one who thought a man stepped into that threesome in the opening scene.

I thought   he was a self loathing bi-sexual in denial, which was completely plausible given the era and the environment and the people he associated with.   I've lived in Texas my entire life and knew more than a few of those.

Nah, the flashback was him thinking back to a time when he screwed an intravenous druggie girl.

I agree with the self-loathing, but I don't think he was like Chris Cooper in American Beauty. but, as his character was portrayed in the movie, I think he was at his core, a beer-swilling, rough f*cking, macho oil worker.

but as we all know from the Village People and The Simpsons, buyer beware of extreme portrayals of manliness.

and I know 2 "extremely rugged, manly men" who have had bi-sexual dalliances in the past (MMF, with some same-sex groping going on, but no kissing or anything else MM with the lips (as their 1-time telling of the exploits goes).

one is in complete denial about it and blames alcohol and drugs.

the other has accepted that it happened and has carried on with his life.

that was never in question. the filmmakers made it clear that that was how he acquired it.
'
I was tiptoeing around that scene to avoid spoiling it for those who haven't seen it yet.

but it is possible that that flashback may have just been one point of acquisition, and without going down the rabbit hole, who's to say that he hadn't already acquired it before that time?

and was that scene shown just for the audience's sake, or was that an active flashback that he was experiencing?

SPOILER AHEAD for the 2 of you that may not have seen the movie: 

The director purposefully made it look like he was with men both at the beginning and during the flashback scene, especially during the flashback. My wife and I both thought his overreaction and homophobia was from denial of having been with men, but after rewinding and closely rewatching the flashback saw that he's remembering having sex with a women. Albeit a woman with track marks all over her arms.

That would be the case if the movie was about homosexuality, but it's not.  It's not going to beat you over the head with some cliche machismo means you're a closet homosexual subtext because it makes no sense in the context of this movie.  And thank McConaughey's God for that, since it was much better being a character study than a soapbox

2014-03-10 12:36:39 PM
As Jebusy cray-cray as the blogger lady is, you have to at least give her credit for being logically consistent.  If McConaughey is going to make a movie that ultimately fails to condemn homosexuals and transsexuals for their sinning, can he truly be a Christian icon because he later claims to love God?  Shouldn't his deeds count as much (or more) than his words?
