More straight-washing from The Washington Post

In an otherwise interesting article in The Washington Post, the author limits the subject of eroticism in art to "men wanting to look at naked women" and even limits discussion of such thoroughly homoeroticized images as the martyrdom of St. Sebastian to their effects on heterosexual viewers. Yet homoeroticism in art goes back for millennia. How anyone can view such works as Ercole e Caco and not see homoeroticism, except through willful ignorance, is beyond me.
