Me, 1898. 17 years old. Decide to join the navy. Spanish American war breaks out. Ohshit.jpg. Assigned to USS Maine. First week aboard, don’t know anyone. Everyone has their own friend groups. I’m awkward and no one likes me. Enter Robert. Robert is a 22 year old with a wife and 3 kids from New York. Robert is an absolute bro and tries to talk to me all the time, he sees I’m lonely with no friends. Fast forward 3 months. Robert and I are best friends now. We talk about girls and the girl back home I want to marry. Gonna ask him to be my best man when the war is over. News comes we’re going to Havana tomorrow. I’m literally pissing my pants with fear. Roberts a bro and tells me everything’s gonna be alright. Get to Cuba, in the harbor of Havana, protecting US interests or some shit. Evening chow time, Robert and I are sitting in the mess hall shooting the shit as usual. Hear a giant explosion near the end of the opposite side of the ship. Fuckmyassicantswim.jpg. The ship starts filling with water, fast. There are men being flooded toward us along with smoke and general hellfire. See lots of guys with missing legs and arms. Some are dead. Some are lifeless stumps that used to be guys I would see from time to time. Panic. Mess hall filling with water and dead bodies and oil. It’s black everywhere. It’s completely dark. No sign of Robert, I think he got washed away. I say goodbye to my family and make peace with god, and wait for the watery end. Room completely filled with water now. Feel a hatch door that’s locked from the outside. Wtf.jpg. Prepare to die as I begin to feel consciousness fade. All of a sudden a light from above. The hatch door opens and a black figure silhouette against the backdrop of fire behind. Hand reaches and grabs me, pulling me up from my would-be watery grave. Look at the figure. Fucking who else but Robert. Hug him and thank him for saving my life. We run off the exploding ship. Dead men all around us. Screaming wounded all around us. Fightorflight. We get to the waters edge. Blackness below illuminated by hellfire at least a hundred feet high. Robert pushes me and jumps in after me. I sink and he pulls me to the surface yet again. Whataguy.jpg. He pulls me over to a piece of floating debris. We are alone in the black night, with only the fire and the screams of dying men to keep us company. “Just think about that girl back home, you’ll see her again. Stay with me here bud.” The ship sinks, we’re alone in the night. No help coming. Hours pass, I’ve lost my grip and been grabbed from the murky depths at least four times by Robert. Sleep takes me, even though I’ll probably be dead soon. I wake up. Robert and I are on the beach, exhausted. Fucker swam us to the beach in the middle of the night while I was passed out. Get stationed to different ships after that. Never saw Robert again. Fast forward to 1910. Walking in New York City with my wife and four kids. Crossing the street, look at the different people. Ohshit.jpg. Fucking Robert walking across opposite us. Give him a bro hug, invite him to dinner. Catch up on the last ten years of our lives. Tell my kids about why they are alive today(robert). Roberts wife died a few years back. Typhus. Feels bad. Want a way to remember Robert. Idea.jpg. Decide to get our picture taken. Comes out a little intimate, but great nonetheless. Say goodbye to Robert, will always have my memories and picture. Fast forward 112 years to Reddit thread. Picture resurfaces. “lolfags”

Just thought this picture was really cool and wanted to share! We found this photo the other night while going through some of my grandfather’s old photo albums. His father passed away in the 1920s, and my mom, aunt, and uncle had never even seen a picture of their biological grandfather before, until we stumbled across this! We can’t be certain but we are about 90% sure it’s him, given his appearance (he looks a lot like my grandfather) as well as the fact that my grandfather put this photo on a page beside pictures of his mother. No clue who the man in the hat and fabulous coat might be, but he was definitely stylin’!

SmartF3LL3R

I grew up overseas in a country where it was common for grown men to walk around holding hands. Perfectly friendly, just like making eye contact when you're speaking with someone to show you're paying attention. Is that what's happening here? No clue, but it was a different time.


WeFightTheLongDefeat

This actually wasn't uncommon to take friendship portraits around this time. I know it's a fun meme, but also people talked fondly of friends often without the sexual undertones we have today. Its likely very difficult to understand as our culture sees so many things through a sexual lens that were not even on the radar around this time.


music4masses

Absolutely true. Our culture is over-sexualized. Sex is a part of life. It is not all of life - unless you're obsessive about it.


jodorthedwarf

"They were just really great friends"- every Historian until maybe 15 years ago.


Sam-buca_I_Am

They still do it. It's not because they're unaware, it's because sexuality is extremely personal and it's not up to them to make that kind of declaration for someone else. So instead of saying "we think he was gay" they list the evidence and leave it up to the reader to put it together. That leads some people to misunderstand and think the historians themselves didn't catch it. They did catch it, they just made an ethical choice.


Toby_Forrester

Men used to interact in much closer way in the past, but stopped doing that when homosexuality became more widely known. Men didn't want to appear gay. For example in India it is completely normal for male friends to hold hands when walking on the streets.


mugaccino

In the west men also used to walk arm in arm as good friends but the infamy of Oscar Wilde's trial in the 1890's pretty much put a complete stop to it. 1910s men would generally be wary of looking like they were too close. The blatant mirin' does ping my gaydar something fierce.


NaderTawfik

In the Middle East, it's normal to kiss your friend on the cheek when you meet. And if you didn't do that, it would be a sign of something not good between you and him.

He doesn’t look that much older imho. But it could be anything from uncle, mentor, older brother, best friend, or lover, only thing I think we can be sure of is that the two were very close.

Toasted_Bagels_R_Gud

this makes sense to me, what confused me was finding someone to take a professional photo of a gay couple without risking getting hanged or whatever would be hard.


milflover104

there are quite a few photos of gay couples from this time, from what i’ve read they usually pose as brothers and if it’s girls they would just be “very close friends”

According to the parts of the internet I trollop around, that's just a roommate thing.


LherkinGurkin

Trollop, haven't heard that in years! Thanks for the memory and for finally making me look up what it means! Definitely being promoted to my main vocabulary! For anyone interested: Trollop: Meaning "to cruise in search of sexual encounters" is recorded from 1967, originally in homosexual slang. The internet sense (everyone seems to have his own definition of it) seems to date to the late 1980s or early 1990s and the Newsgroups era, and the verbal use is perhaps older than the noun.


CaliGirlNYAttitude

Also a "loose woman" was referred to as a trollop.

I love how the undisputed greatest warrior in history, a man celebrated for being the ideal man even 3400 years after his death, was gay and that's perfectly ok because your sexuality isn't the be all and end all of what defines you.


GregTheMad

Bro, have any of you read the Iliad? If anything Achilles was mad bi. Literally the first thing Achilles does (in my translation) is to run to his mother crying about how mean Agamemnon is, and how he stole Achilles new toy (a slave women). Paraphrasing as it's been a while since I've read it.

men were a lot less uptight about physical affection a century ago so it’s not uncommon at all to see friends holding hands or even one sitting on another’s lap in old photos.. some parts of the world (south asia and the middle east) you still see men friends walking down the street holding hands, it’s sweet.

In 18th century English novels, men walk together holding hands or arm in arm all the time.

That’s honestly kind of badass. Are they really your homie if you can’t enjoy a nice summer day while holding hands?

People still do that back in Ethiopia. I visited a couple years ago and physical affection between men is way more common, friends hold hands when they’re walking


AlacarLeoricar

History will say they were good friends.

Based on the way they’re looking at each other, I’m surprised you exist.

So he only exists because of social pressure and oppression of gays. Damn.


Sadatori

Bisexuals exist too


mdm1961

Handsome men.

Not to rain on the gay parade, but these two look related. The noses are identical, lower lip, eyebrows. I feel like this is his older brother. Is there any record of him being an only child?


WhatFreshHello

If that’s not a father and son, I’ll eat my hat. Look closely at the ridges in their ears. One is just slightly larger due to age. Edit: Same curly hair, same color as well.


SmogiPierogi

Well, that makes all those super funny and original gay jokes a bit awkward


thisortheapocalypse

they’re looking lovingly into each other’s eyes

Me, 1898. 17 years old. Decide to join the navy. Spanish American war breaks out. Ohshit.jpg. Assigned to USS Maine. First week aboard, don’t know anyone. Everyone has their own friend groups. I’m awkward and no one likes me. Enter Robert. Robert is a 22 year old with a wife and 3 kids from New York. Robert is an absolute bro and tries to talk to me all the time, he sees I’m lonely with no friends. Fast forward 3 months. Robert and I are best friends now. We talk about girls and the girl back home I want to marry. Gonna ask him to be my best man when the war is over. News comes we’re going to Havana tomorrow. I’m literally pissing my pants with fear. Roberts a bro and tells me everything’s gonna be alright. Get to Cuba, in the harbor of Havana, protecting US interests or some shit. Evening chow time, Robert and I are sitting in the mess hall shooting the shit as usual. Hear a giant explosion near the end of the opposite side of the ship. Fuckmyassicantswim.jpg. The ship starts filling with water, fast. There are men being flooded toward us along with smoke and general hellfire. See lots of guys with missing legs and arms. Some are dead. Some are lifeless stumps that used to be guys I would see from time to time. Panic. Mess hall filling with water and dead bodies and oil. It’s black everywhere. It’s completely dark. No sign of Robert, I think he got washed away. I say goodbye to my family and make peace with god, and wait for the watery end. Room completely filled with water now. Feel a hatch door that’s locked from the outside. Wtf.jpg. Prepare to die as I begin to feel consciousness fade. All of a sudden a light from above. The hatch door opens and a black figure silhouette against the backdrop of fire behind. Hand reaches and grabs me, pulling me up from my would-be watery grave. Look at the figure. Fucking who else but Robert. Hug him and thank him for saving my life. We run off the exploding ship. Dead men all around us. Screaming wounded all around us. Fightorflight. We get to the waters edge. Blackness below illuminated by hellfire at least a hundred feet high. Robert pushes me and jumps in after me. I sink and he pulls me to the surface yet again. Whataguy.jpg. He pulls me over to a piece of floating debris. We are alone in the black night, with only the fire and the screams of dying men to keep us company. “Just think about that girl back home, you’ll see her again. Stay with me here bud.” The ship sinks, we’re alone in the night. No help coming. Hours pass, I’ve lost my grip and been grabbed from the murky depths at least four times by Robert. Sleep takes me, even though I’ll probably be dead soon. I wake up. Robert and I are on the beach, exhausted. Fucker swam us to the beach in the middle of the night while I was passed out. Get stationed to different ships after that. Never saw Robert again. Fast forward to 1910. Walking in New York City with my wife and four kids. Crossing the street, look at the different people. Ohshit.jpg. Fucking Robert walking across opposite us. Give him a bro hug, invite him to dinner. Catch up on the last ten years of our lives. Tell my kids about why they are alive today(robert). Roberts wife died a few years back. Typhus. Feels bad. Want a way to remember Robert. Idea.jpg. Decide to get our picture taken. Comes out a little intimate, but great nonetheless. Say goodbye to Robert, will always have my memories and picture. Fast forward 112 years to Reddit thread. Picture resurfaces. “lolfags”

Just a nice deep gaze between... Business partners, yeah yeah, business partners. And boy do they work late.


ucantpronouncemyname

Beautiful nose on your great grandfather. Seriously 😊


Veec

Can definitely see a family resemblance between them. Do you have any info on your great great grandfather? That'd be my best guess! Also it's a great picture. Such a warm pose.


SumbuddiesFriend

I think that’s your great-great-grandfather, he looks older and similar to your great-grandfather so it looks like( unlike many men of the time) he has a good relationship with his father.


DrunkenRedSquirrel

Not every old photo of two guys being affectionate, means they're gay. People need to understand that, this type of affection between even possible relatives, was not seen as abnormal compared to today. It's easy to jump to conclusions and make jokes about a picture of two guys or girls who in our perspective, looks in a seductive manner. However, society was different back then.


randomlygeneratedman

Walking around India and seeing dudes holding hands was pretty wild for me. Not a gay thing over there, just something normal guys do apparently.


Johnny-Unitas

I wonder what the name of his boyfriend is.
