""You can’t say for sure that the two were lovers. But considering their position, you can make that hypothesis. It is difficult to say with certainty.”"

Embracing figures at Pompeii 'could have been gay lovers', after scan reveals they are both men"

>the person who made this assumption did so because it was convenient
An 18-yo roman dude and 20-yo roman dude (which are neither brothers nor father/son) were found in an embrace during an apocalypse scenario. Previously, it was believed they were women in an embrace.

To say the hypothesis only exists because it's convenient is to say that had one of these been a woman, nobody would have made the assumption they are lovers (based on their position). Because it isn't convenient.

How fucking stupid is that?
