TJ Does Stuff

Remember that girl with the big brown eyes and the messy brown hair? Yeah? That was me.

Just finished the Great Gatsby.

I was told to reread it from the perspective of Nick Caraway being homosexual, and I just don’t see it. There is a random sentence that seems to imply a sexual encounter between Nick another male. Being from men’s boarding school and Yale in the days of all-or-mostly-male admission, I think Nick simply harbors some affinity for casual sex with other men. Gay? Probably not.

Sexuality is a very complex thing, but that’s a post for another day. I can see Nick as pansexual or even romantically asexual. That is, I can see him having an all-or-nothing sexuality that allows him to see the beauty in everything. It also gets him closer to god — Dr. TJ Eckleberg and Owl-Eyes.
