gay sexuality and physical love is not a bad thing that needs to be justified or redeemed by romantic symbolism or emotional commitment, but it sure the hell isn't mutually exclusive with those things, and just because love is non-physical and cutely non-threatening doesn't mean it's substantial, healthy, or committed. Infantilizing gayness in its 'wholesome' forms is an assimilationist Pyrrhic victory, making some forms of gayness a commodifiable aesthetic and reinforcing the belief that real-life messy gays whose love is at all physical or complicated are too crude and sexual to be allowed in a society that has children in it
games consoles were standard def or below from the very beginning until the PS3/360 ushered in the "hd generation" with games running at up to 1080p
the next generation had to move from 1080p to 4K halfway through, and now the PS4 and xbox series X are promising 8K at launch, by which they almost certainly mean 8K media and 4K games
meanwhile movies are still being sold on DVD with its 576p/480p max res output, and 4K blu-rays often include a 1080p blu-ray copy in the case
there are so few 8K televisions that the wikipedia article on 8K currently lists all of them

Tried opening the car door and I was absolutely swarmed with fireflies, an obscene, unspeakable cloud of them. Not what I signed up for. I'm getting back in the car.
