The media, social and otherwise, and their herds of brainless followers, have been claiming lately that being gay in the Viking age was perfectly fine. It was not.
Norse culture was (and still is) all about masculinity, with the associated gender polarization. Men were expected to be men, and women were expected to be women. The worst possible insults for men invariably related to feminine behavior. Any man who would display any sign of effeminacy was greatly stigmatized and socially ostracized, and this includes any man who would not breed (referred to fuðflogi, which translates to flees from vagina). All Norse literature, and history, is very clear about it.
The gay movement, a modern social construct, unrelated at this point to sexual orientation, is defined by far left liberal ideology, including rejection of masculinity (at least publicly, not when it comes to sucking dick), institutionalized feminization and emasculation of men, and even gender neutrality. The gay ideology would therefore have been completely abhorrent in the Viking age, and any man parading dressed as a woman wouldn’t even have had any use as a male whore, and would have at best been excluded from the community, at worst, simply been killed.
What was fine in Norse culture, however, was bisexuality. Sure, technically, this includes a homosexual aspect, which is still completely unrelated to the gay movement. Because bisexuality, for starts, only relates to sexual inclinations, and does not involve any emasculation or feminization. As a matter of fact, bisexuality even promotes and embraces, unlike the gay movement, archetypes of masculinity, and those evolutionary traits and characteristics that define men. Bisexuality also involves smashing pussy, and thus, breeding. All reasons why bisexuality was part of Norse culture, but the gay thing, never was.
