    It is not about realization. Again it seems that I am not clear with my point.

    Which doesn't make it less weird for us to watch, even if there is no judgement .k
    Again, it is not about judgment. It is about how certain people, both straight and gay, were raised. It's like growing up in any cult, say Mormonism, Even if they escaped a cult, it still sticks to them for the rest of their lives. It takes time to recover.

    Honestly, I don't need to see anyone making out in the middle of a crime drama. No matter the gender.
    No clue what you are talking about.

    Agree, and we're seeing it in advertisements as well. I believe there was an ad pulled from the Super Bowl last year because it showed two obviously gay men
    Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

    My OP is not about tastefulness, it is about how certain people were raised to react to those innocent acts.

    See that's a part of my point. Some people have no idea where the hate and disgust came from.

    Wasn't raised that way, born in 50' raised in the 50's and 60's never thought or taught to hate about it we knew kids who were gay , maybe a white christian American thing

    You are very lucky. The Fundamentalist Christianity was the main religion at that time (60 to 80). (Course there are the next religions that are close to it). The Moral Majority was the height of it. As I have stated many times, I attended Liberty University. One of the requirements was that I have to go to Thomas Road Baptist Church every Sunday morning. There was one particular Sunday when my mom and other relatives came to visit me and we all went to Jerry's service on that period where the "Don't ask, don't tell" shit started under the Clinton Administration. As we were listening to Jerry bitching about Clinton (uh huh where have we ever heard that before???), he started talking about that policy after ranting about gay this, gay that. Then he made a weird movement.

    To be continued......

    +10 Internet points to whoever guess the next part correctly.

    It does if it's gratuitous. That goes for any overt sex scene in media. If there's a reason for it being included, no problem, but often times of late such scenes are tossed in for no apparent or given reason. Gratuitous sex scenes in media are basically soft porn and nothing more.

    It does not matter if it is "gratuitous". It seems that I wasn't clear in my OP.

    "What the fuck?", I said. Then I realized I was raised that way and it's ingrained into my personhood since childhood.

    "Yo that's how some people, especially honest Christian Republicans, were raised", I pontificated.

    "Yup it is not their fault how they feel about it. It was how they were raised in a Fundamentalist Christian homes", nodding yes as I was thinking it.

    Yo yep one of the sources of guilt, hatred, disgust, feeling sick, sinful, wanting to eliminate them (in this context, the source of the feelings), and so on.

    So yuppers they are scared and afraid and they are extremely afraid of it.
    While I agree it's mostly cultural, there's a survival plus to being slightly xenophobic. Our species spent about 290,000 years running around as nomadic tribes and only the last 10,000 or so living in villages and farms.

    Your usage of the term, "gratuitous", shows you do not understand my point.

    I guess I'll have to clarify my point further, even if I have already attempted to do so in a few posts.

    Well yeah. However, if the children were left alone without brainwashing, hate and any other ugly stuff during 50-80's, do you think we would have this problem today?

    What bothers me is the Hollywood now almost completely refuses to make movies that appeal to good guys who lust/love women....WOKE does not allow that.
    I am loath to invest any more time into yakking about Side Show Don... We have been doing that full time for seven years and things keep getting worse.

    Lets do something else, MKAY?
