and let’s take a moment to appreciate the fact that michelangelo had probably never seen a girl naked and when he want to sculpt or paint them his mentality seems to be “wow, everyone likes women….they must be like…..buff dudes. i love buff dudes. women are buff dudes but with little chest lumps and no wiener”
And my personal favorite, Adam and Eve
he literally painted adam and steve
I am in the absolute SHITTIEST mood right now, but this actually made me laugh out loud.
The NYC Met museum had an exhibition where a projection of the Sistine chapel was paired with a bunch of Michelangelo’s sketches.
My friends… EVERYONE KNEW HE WAS GAY. He wasn’t even trying to hide it.
He drew portraits of and for his crushes and boyfriends. He had KNOWN lovers and he definitely had a thing for young brawny men.
Historians: “oh, I’m such a genius, this man is referenced as his favourite. His love must have been a lecherous secret. Dirty, perverted, secretive.”
I am laughing so much rn bless this
Michelangelo the original “horny on main” artist.
