When you watch Torchwood there is a warning at the very beginning that some scenes may offend or disturb people, so if you allow your children to sit and watch it with you that’s your responsibility, it’s not ours anymore. We kissed, we held each other, we lay on top of each other in bed… and there were lots of complaints about that. Nobody complained that I was shot in the head four times, there were burning people in ovens, that I was stabbed by a mob of 50 people hundreds of times, and I was hanging dripping my blood in a pit. So that’s what confuses me, because you’re not complaining about gay sex, you’re complaining about two men kissing. And it’s 2011. And people say, “Well why should we have that on television?” Because the BBC have to represent the greater public — and there are gay people out there who pay their television license. For people to complain, that’s your prerogative — but you know what, none of them turned it off! They were just embarrassed because it put them in a position where they had to explain things to their kids or their family which probably should have been explained a long time ago.
This is why I love him, and why I will always love him.
The fact that people complain about sex, while never complaining about violence is so very revealing about our society.
IF YOU ARE COMFORTABLE EXPLAINING “COUNTRYCIDE” AND “CHILDREN OF EARTH” BUT NOT SAME-SEX RELATIONSHIPS TO YOUR CHILDREN
GET THE ACTUAL FUCK OUT.
No, seriously. If sex, ANY CONSENSUAL SEX, or nudity bothers you more than violence & gore as a parent: 1. Sort your priorities. 2. If it’s non-het sex that’s got your knickers in a twist, have all the seats. 3. If you are a parent *choosing* to have your kids watch stuff and you then complain rather than change the channel…idek what’s wrong with you. 4. If you are all of the above, the words, “The nanny state,” are no longer allowed to pass your lips in any context, you sniveling infants.
All these “cuddle and play video games” date ideas are weak. We’re playing mario kart double dash, cuddling is a distraction. Im here to win
