Yes but the point he was making Lynne was still the same.

He was saying that he's surprised the newspapers haven't ran a few stories about 'an openly gay man taking the lead role in a programme aimed at children'. I think it is clear what can be inferred from such a comment.

Same old homophobic bull shit.

This was in response to my point about creating positive gay role models so that children struggling with their sexuality in a predominantly heterosexual environment, who are usually being targetted for bullying t as it goes, have some kind of reassurances from adults who have survived it.

I fear you may have misunderstood what I wrote.

I started by saying that one of the positive things about the programmes was that they were overt about homosexuality, compared to others who have not had an openly gay leading character, particularly programmes aimed at children. And that I couldn't recall any others.

My surprise at not seeing any disapproving newspaper articles was not a lament. It was a weary comment upon the style of newspapers we have and the expectation that they would use these programmes to promote their own homophobic agendas.

Not something I would welcome, but something which I would expect, a la the disgraceful Ms Moir and Stephen Gately.

I think you will find I have a history of posting rather liberal messages on messageboards, often criticied for it in fact. I apologise if that liberal and tolerant sunbeam didn't shine through my post.

No I think I should apologise, I have obviously mis-understood. I did think your post began with a positive reflection on the matter but then it seemed to confuse me a little. Lynne did try to explain.

T8, I am not a Dr Who fan but have seen a couple of progs at a friend's.

I think there are three "degrees" of presentation of homosexuality in the media:

a) Plainly anti, even if only in ridiculing gays ever-so politely.

b) Positive support, making sure that the audience knows for sure that the producer has a message.

c) Just accepting that gays exist, no overt pro or anti.

Would I by right in thinking that Dr W. came into the last category - don't make a fuss about it, just allow it to appear where appropriate?

If you fancy somebody, knowing their sexual inclinations can avoid embarrassment.


 

I guess having only ever had the one relationship since I was 14, that didn't occur to me.

Re Cap'n Jack - I adore John Barrowman.  Torchwood and Dr Who are on my 'don't miss' list.



How can anyone NOT find that aesthetically pleasing?

Now that is tha sort of idiotic remark that irritates people, Lynne. If you can't see the difference between finding somebody attractive and actually having it off with them, then your perceptive powers are sadly lacking.

Or was it just another 'joke'?

Once again Lynne, you're practising your habit, now honed to perfection, of reflecting onto others what is in your own heart.  

How odd that it offends you, the fact that I've only ever known my husband.

One of the things Jesus taught, was that what is in our hearts and minds is as important as what we actually do.

So for a married person - looking at another with desire, is the same as committing adultery, because they are doing it with their heart.

The important lesson for Christians, behind this, is that when you spend time thinking and desiring something, you are beginning to work towards it, and away from what you should be paying attention to.

I think this is what Lynne was referring to here.
