On a recent episode of the new TV series FlashForward, there was a scene where two women kissed. It was known that they were lesbians. I read today that some people found the kissing scene "gratuitous." Why would anyone think such a scene was unwarranted? Why is it okay to show a male and female kissing, but not two females kissing? Why is one acceptable and the other is not?
I also read today where some active members of the LDS Church have decided they will no longer watch FlashForward because of the female-female kissing scene.
This is bugging the heck out of me today, so I thought I'd vent about it here on my blog.
Tell me … Would you honestly stop watching a TV series because of one scene?
And what is so horrendous about showing two women kissing?
Please leave a comment. Your thoughts would be most appreciated.
