Before Rockwell, a Gay Artist Defined the Perfect American Male
"Nobody had to tell J.C. Leyendecker that sex sells. Before the conservative backlash of the mid-20th century, the American public celebrated his images of sleek muscle-men, whose glistening homo-eroticism adorned endless magazine covers. Yet Leyendecker’s name is almost forgotten, whitewashed over by Norman Rockwell’s legacy of tame, small-town Americana.

"Rockwell was just an 11-year old kid when Leyendecker created the legendary “Arrow Collar Man” in 1905, used to advertise the clothing company’s miraculous detachable collars. One of America’s first recognizable sex symbols, this icon of masculinity was defined by his poise and perfection, whether on the sports field or at the dinner table. Like the Gibson Girl, the Arrow Collar Man developed a singular identity, equal parts jock and dandy, who supposedly received more fan letters than silent film heartthrob Rudolph Valentino. To top things off, Leyendecker’s men were often modeled after his lover and lifetime companion, Charles Beach, making their secret romance a front-page feature across the U.S."

i love how i’m sitting here like “why is this happening sherlock didn’t start out as a dark show” like wow i’m glad i’m only lightly amused by serial killers and the elderly being blown up

Every new season I’m surprised at how dark and how comedic the show is. It’s like we forget in the interim. 

It’s like a culinary delicacy, your favorite food that you’re not allowed to have all the time. Because when Halloween comes around, you’ve always forgotten how delicious are the giant chocolate bars that one house gives out.
