Your first sentence said it: "jokingly." Believe it or not, but beyond the insane homophobia of male-male relationships, there can be amazingly strong bonds. Loving another man doesn't mean you're going to want to put your Johnson down his hershey canal.
Yes, but the aformentioned evidence provided in the manga clearly shows that Naruto's love for Sasuke has a strong sexual undercurrent. A platonic love between two men is much better demonstrated even just by the flashbacks in, say, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean, between Dio and Pucci. And that manga is just better
than Naruto anyway.
Also, since when was Naruto a "cool" role model? Is he your
Yare yare daze.
