Like Bortus (and his mate), from The Orville, who is neither flamboyant nor sassy.

I’m not really bothered by men who are gay, per se, but I really am not fond of men in general who are effeminate, especially flamboyantly so. It weirds me out.

So it’s okay if they’re gay, but they need to be gay in a way that doesn’t bother you?

I prefer to link to an article and at least give people a chance to decide for themselves, so here you go Warb.

You know, I think people have to realize that people did use the n-word. It happened. Its real. It was not right. But it happened. I agree the word is offensive. I never use it. But it was used and unfortunately racists today still use it. It is simply not realistic to depict racists and not having them use the word. I don’t see the reason why a book like “To Kill a Mockingbird” should be banned just because it depicts racists using that word. Roots also has racists using that word. Should it be banned? It depicts slavery. How would you realistically depict slave masters and overseers referring to slaves without having them use the n-word? The same it true for racists. This is why the word became so offensive, because it was how the master, overseer, and racist referred to black people. I suppose next we will ban all movies and books about WWII if they have American soldiers referring to the Japanese as j__s.

Jews?

How dare you?

It’s not just his hair. The grooves round the center ridges are much more pronounced later in the series.

Take it to the Missed the Joke thread.

This isn’t gonna become another “this (woman) isn’t a Doctor Who, this (man) is a Doctor Who” thing is it?

Well certainly it was worth it. I would have preferred to be home watching football but that would have been pretty selfish of me.
