Over in the bathroom, sexual acceptance by way of latent strains of homophobia rears its "yeah, but chicks are hot" head. Sean, Genesis, Jason, and Syrus (for someone who allegedly left the house two scenes ago, he sure is pulling down a surprising amount of screen time tonight) discuss the following enigmatic Chinese riddle, brought to us by Syrus: "People say you're a product of your environment. I think the environment. Is a product. Of the people." Ooooh. Thanks, Oracle. Damn, I love those pauses that he tries to pass off as dramatic, when in fact he has completely lost his train of thought. Genesis asks if Syrus thinks she's a product of nature or environment, and he attempts to condense hundreds of years of social psychology into one empirical statement: "There was Adam and there was Eve." Well, that's all the information I needed. Oh, goody. The "just like it says in the Bible" defense. So topical. But he's quick to excuse Genesis' godless sexuality on the basis that two women are "beautiful to me, because women are beautiful when you get together like that." In contrast, he indicates Sean and comments, "If you asked me to look at his hairy ass over there, I'd throw up." Okay, then. So let's recap, shall we? Lesbians represent an acceptable form of eccentric sexual behavior because it never fails to start up Syrus' libido, and is thus deemed okay. But two men together don't make his cut of an acceptable expression of love, a little because you'll be smited for your sins according to the dictums passed down by thy Lord our God, and a little because two men together is, y'know, a little bit icky. At least Syrus isn't keeping a low profile about this whole "him being God" thing.
