there are a number of reasons for that. first being, that's the way we always did. you showered, you were naked. you shaved, you were naked. you went to the toilet ( usually before you showered ), you were naked because you were going to shower. we didn't ogle each other. but much fun was had ( verbal, non touching ) for various reasons at each others expense. we took gym, (mandatory) and we took showers,(again mandatory). so basically it is how we learned. i'm sure there were gays in our days, but if you were, you certainly didn't advertise. and most of us were not and are not ashamed of our bodies. we may not be adonis's to this day, but gay, straight, or bi we aren't ashamed of our physique or our sexuality. so i don't think they are doing it to offend anyone, it's just the way things were and we see no reason to change. ok? ok.
