I was just watching ‘Are You Being Served‘ the English tv show from the ’70’s.
One of the most loved characters on this program, Mr Wilberforce Claybourne Humphries, is clearly gay. He’s a fantastic character with a twinkle in his eye and plenty of innuendos about his sexuality. And the audience adored him.
Yet here we are, four decades later and Australian debate is raging about gay marriage and according to Mia Freedman’s blog there is an uproar in the United States in reaction to a screen kiss between two boys on the tv show, Glee.
Perhaps it’s fair to expect to move two steps forward and one back when it comes to social issues but this is ridiculous.
Some men are attracted to men, some women are attracted to women. Some men are attracted to men and women, some women are attracted to women and men. Some men are attracted to women, some women are attracted to men.
Deal with it.
