This isn't an example of a "kid-friendly" show but thought it was germane to the discussion. Remember way back during the Original Quest when people freaked out over sex in EQ but seemed totally ok with graphic violence and war? Well a very similar thing is now happening with the Walking Dead TV series. Great example of the shades of homophobia that are alive and well among fanboys and how we still have a long way to go. That said, Buzzfeed nails the absurdity and hypocrisy of all those who freaked out over this week's episode. I think we EQ fans are a lot more advanced when it comes to this stuff but I'm fully anticipating that we'll have to deal with this when the same sex couple gets more of a spotlight in the Final Quest. And I say bring it on! We only grow when we are challenged by the visibility of new and different things.
