My reaction to seeing affectionate gay couples in public is the same as my reaction to seeing mixed race couples. It's not "ick". I just hear a cheer in my head saying "21st century UK kicks fucking arse!" I hope to eventually get over it.

The portrayals of homosexuals on TV is hit and miss. On this regard, Game of Thrones looks like 1960s rubbish compared to Caprica and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

I didn't watch either of those.

And yes, I like the openness of modern times, having grown up in a time when holding hands with a boyfriend in front of your parents was a no-no.

I'm thinking that perhaps openness and diversity are my qualifiers for what defines civilization.
