It's bad enough that gets done so often with male-female relationships that are truly about a strong platonic or familial type affection, and not at all meant to be sexual. But all the guys now too? Sheesh. Even raised as brothers they aren't safe from it. Some people have to make it all about sex.

I dislike the Thorki thing, too. It's incest to me even though Loki was adopted. What some fans see as romantic attraction and affection between the two characters is simply the intensity of their feelings in tense situations. There are different kinds of love; brotherly love does exist and has nothing to do with romance, as much as some mistake the two.

I am not above joking about it, however.
