Think Long and Hard...

Odd trend spotted in recent kidcoms: the prevalence of brothers who are either coded strongly as gay (Cody Martin, Josh Nichols, Justin Russo) or who end up in weirdly homoerotic situations (Jackson Stewart, Spencer Shay). Jess has promised to someday write a thoughtful post on the matter, but in the mean time, we've put up a brand new poll. So: look to the right-hand sidebar, and pick your favorite kidcom gay brother. (Those of you on the LJ feed will need to mosey on over to the actual blog for this, of course.)

And yes, I apologize for the entry title.

Speaking of polls, our previous (which is your favorite "Troy is having a nervous breakdown" song?) has concluded, with Bet On It juuuuust edging out Scream, 47 votes to 44, both rating much higher than Get'Cha Head in the Game and its inappropriate apostrophe.

Now I have to choose between Josh and Jackson? SO UNFAIR.

I voted for Slightly Better Sprouse but I have to say: where is Mr. Ryan Evans, the ultimate coded brother? I suppose HSM doesn't count as a kidcom...

I was SO close to picking Spencer, but alas, I think Josh's awesome sparkleness outshines Spencer's for the time being. Unless future iCarly episodes come up that dazzle me. Then I shall change my vote!!

Tessa -- yeah, HSM isn't a kidcom, otherwise he would be on this list. (On the other hand, "Which Disney movie coming of age movie that's secretly a coming out story is your favorite?" could be a question in and of itself. HSM? Jump In? Sky High? I'm *sure* there are more.)

Spencer wins, hands down.
