In a democracy, the majority of the citizens is capable of exercising the most cruel oppressions upon the minority
~ Edmund Burke (January 12, 1729 - July 09, 1797)
On a gay situation, I think we set a trend too. I remember how Blake Carrington in Dynasty hated his son being gay. And the son finally moved out and Blake was mean to his son's lover, but in the last show, I'll never forget that, Blake visited the apartment his son and his lover were living in. They were expecting trouble and hell, but nothing happened and he kissed his son.
