Reader Matt W. sends in this hilarious look at Liquid Snake from the (as I am slowly realizing) uber-gay Metal Gear Solid Series..
“Being straight I don’t claim to be an expert on what makes a character truly gay. But I do agree that MGS is a homo-fest, so I had something to add.
Liquid Snake – MGS1
I am not gay, but Liquid Snake makes me wish I was. He’s Oscar Wilde meets Darth Vader. Liquid Snake is Solid Snake’s twin brother, but whereas Solid is a gruff introvert, Liquid is a scene-munching fireball of homoeroticism. Imagine if Hugo Weaving had played Agent Smith like he was still in Priscilla Queen of the Desert, and you’ll begin to get an inkling of the flaming magnetism Liquid brings to the action-thriller setting. He refuses to wear a shirt, gallivants around like he’s doing Shakespeare in the park in every scene, sucks the juice out of every line of dialogue, and finally rips Solid Snake’s clothes off for no other reason than to bask in the radiance of their collective bare-chested glory. And if that’s not enough for you, Liquid Snake’s English voice-actor, Cam Clarke, is a gay-rights activist and singer. ”
