ok but instead of “““““bromance“““““ you could just say friendship
I think the term is fine. Because a bromance and a friendship are two different things. As long as we don’t confine ourselves to using the term “Bromance” for only men, and use it to mean a deep, meaningful, platonic relationship between people of any gender
as a queer woman i would like to say, please, for the love of everything, do not start using “““““bromance“““““ for female friendship
i think friendship can mean “a deep, meaningful, platonic relationship between people of any gender“, whereas “““““bromance“““““ screams heterosexism to me
"Bromance" is such an unnecessary term and basically means "men’s relationships with other men are more special than relationships involving other genders… but no homo!!".
It’s a queerbaiting joke in one word, really, flirting with the idea that these dudes whose relationship is too deep and meaningful to be called “friendship” might feel something romantic for each other, but makes sure to deny there could be anything romantic actually going on by combining it with a familial term. Not a mystery why a term like this is considered necessary specifically for a same-gender relationship.
Using “bromance” for deep, meaningful, platonic relationships of women and nonbinary people, too, still has the same shitty implications as the term being specifically for men, since the “bro” as in “brother” is pretty obviously gendered. “Your friendship is so deep and meaningful it’s like a men’s friendship”. It’s like when dudes ~compliment~ me by saying I do something “like a man”. Using it as if it’s gender-neutral is treating men as the default.
A super girly and peppy blonde girl who wears bright pink dresses and skirts everyday is best friends with a quiet goth girl who of course sports all black clothing and big lace up boots. Someone jokes and yells to them “Hey look, a fairy and a vampire!” The blonde turns around and flashes a fanged grin and says “She’s human actually.”
This has been done before, I’m sure.
