We're men in tights....TIGHT TIGHTS!!!

In F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, the character Tom Buchanan is a particularly interesting character.  He's considered the 'epitome' of a 'true man'.  With how Fitzgerald creates Tom, and possibly alludes to the main character and narrator, Nick, being gay, it seems there is a little bit of a current issue here.  I'm not too sure if there was even a 'situation' between gays and straights in that time period, but it does seem to touch on some of the basic, 'this is what you have to be like to be a real man' topics.  This made me wonder about what Fitzgerald would say about the 'situation' and even how different would The Great Gatsby be if he wrote it during our time period.
