    These programmes are supposed to be a reflection of our modern lives, all of us, including what is happening in US society, in societies around the world, they aren’t meant to sidestep issues and present some false and utterly meaningless image of life – if they did why would anyone watch? People connect with programmes that reflect their lives, and of those they know of, authentically. Everybody knows gay people are now getting married, and adopting.

    Television still doesn’t reflect the LGBT community properly, but it’s improving at a good pace. There are those who will always decry anything which doesn’t reflect their golden era of 1950, and we can only pity them, [and laugh at them] and they can see a whole range of movies from that era on day-time TV each weekday :)

    It would have been strange if gay people were seen in society, seen getting married, but that it was never shown, at all, on TV.

  2. No matter what they say it IS a political statement and a good one at that.
