In the Western world they are only allowed to fake fights. But there's often affection between them.
I think holding hands are natural and its
doesn't matter on the gender of two person,
but due to culture one is stigmatised either
way. In one culture man can not hold hand
because of stigma of immorality , in other
man do not hod escaping stigma of 'gay'.
Naturaly man is inclined to hold hand of
another person ad sexuality has nothing to do
with it. But then I find bizare western
theories that say that it is because of
sexual repession of indians (Whos traditional
eucation consist of Kamashastra study and
moder indian education i still lagging
behind). AS man can not hold hand of girls,
so they hold hand of man. This is stupid
because it has a presumptin that whatever is
in west is only natural. Since they do not
see man-man intamacy apart fom romatic
assoiation, they asume that it is common
accros he world. Well, Men hold hand in many
other cultre too, in south east asia,china
and in tribal where sexual liberalism is
high. So this theory is stupid and works on
same logic which dictates man-man sex un
natural. The normalthing is holding han has
othic to do with sex rsexuality, like child
hold hands without any sex/sexualiy
considertion. Instead not holding hand hs dep
sex, moral and stigma playing behind. herfore
hr man-woman hold is seen wrong, or bad but
good this thought is dimnishing.
In west men hold hand is seen as romantic
involvement and though they are doing very
well in sexuality matters stigma of being gay
is still there. even if they accept other
being gay somehow they do not want themself
to be called one unless they are.
The question should not be 'Why men hold hand
in India?' because it is most natuaral human
thing instead it should be 'Why man-woman do
not in India?' and 'Why me do not hold hand
I spent a couple of weeks in India and I saw a lot of teenage boys holding hands throughout the country. It was really bazaar as a westerner. They hold hands and twist their wrists and arms around each other very much like many teenage western boyfriend/girlfriends do. I asked a male friend of mine who was Indian about this, I asked " because the society was so strict on male/female relationships without marriage, do the boys play with each other in the interim?" He said "no, it is friendship." In america, during the abstinence ring oath that teenagers were taking, anal sex increased 10 fold through heterosexual teens. It just makes you wonder.
It's normal. It's a cultural thing. Just because it's not the cultural norm here or you don't understand it, doesn't make it wrong. Why are your values the only right way? Not only do they hold hands, but dry kiss on the lips. Get over it.
It's a cultural difference, that's all. I had a friend from Nigeria who would hold my hand, and put her arm around my shoulder. It made me uncomfortable at first, because I wasn't from a touchy feely culture. It's just a gesture of friendship.
omg! i know yes indian straight men i see them holding hands and i wonder if they are closet gay ...but it looks weird true....
because every indian men know his hands are not tuff
I stayed in India for like 5 years.. I didn't see anything like that.. O_o Probably nothing wrong with it.. but thats not quite normal..
It's cultural. The same thing can be seen in European countries, France, for instance.
Yeh, but everyone in france is closet gay. lol
cuz they niggaz
