What We Can Say
Men are supposed to say the loving words to women. They are to make love. Let us reverse that. This would be equivalence between the sexes. And as for love, men should be able to say anything loving to another man that they say to a woman, except "Will you be the mother of my child." But, for the rest? Every tenderness. And what about things physical--what we call sex? That can be meaningful only when referring to male-female intercourse. Erotics? Anything may go, between two men, two women, a man and women enjoying each other's body.
