I don't care for the subject myself either, however it is a part of our society that's Out, now. So, if it must be portrayed why don't they stay within the gay group.

First, as a straight woman who's watched every ABC soap aired, many from beginning to cancellation (GH for the last 45yrs!) I don't see "tv portraying young gay men as perverts. In days past, it wasn't really scripted because in real life, gay folks WERE "in the closet". However times have changed, society is becoming more open and accepting and soap writers are across the board are writing more progressive, edgy stories. I don't see as you call it "young gay men as"..." prey(ing) on other straight young men. or as "perverts". How does ANYONE know what orientation someone is sexually until taking the time to get to know someone? Is "getting to know someone, making friends" now suddenly "preying"?? Love'em or hate'em, they DO teach us things besides simply entertaining us. Like TOLERANCE for what is different from what we know/believe. There is always the option of becoming more open minded and tolerant, OR as you stated, "i am ready to start watch any game show or other normal tv program. thank you dch" and doing just that. :)

I think it's great. Since the character of Brad was supposed to be skeevy, not because he's gay, he did a great job.
Guess what, hon? Gay guys, like straight guys, can be perverts. Felix is not a perv, he's more of a romantic. Lucas is, well, IDK yet. Not much of a romantic, nor is he a perv, just Lucas. And what? Brad can't possibly be pervy because he's gay? Sounds a little prejudice to me.

I agree...stop with this...its like an obsession! We all know you want to be on the cutting edge and attract a new audience but this is ridiculous..entire story lines about 3somes? Really? Im offended this used to be a fun show to watch to forget about life for a while...now its perverted....I can't have my children in the room they can't understand why this is being exploited on tv and they are right.
The 3some story line was stupid, did nothing to add to the shows attraction or interest...what is going on?

I am more upset with Brad is getting anything that he wants. My dislike for him has nothing to do with his sexual orientation. It has to do with his being a party to the theft of the embryos. I cannot stand him and wish him nothing but bad luck.
