I have never understood why it was even a question whether men and women could be “Just friends”. Of course they could. Can. People are people and friends are friends. And what the hell is that “just” doing there? Friendship, especially one on a familial level, isn’t somehow below romantic relations. They’re entirely different fuckin’ hierarchies. Human relationships are too complicated to define based on something so arbitrary as gender. Who gives a shit?
It’s a dumb fucking question and I’m sick of it.
