Some Brits have their panties in a twist after Big Brother showed two gay men in bed last night.
The men, Gerry Stergiopoulos and Seany O’Kane, were lying side by side, stroking one another’s hair, hugging and let their hands “wander”. Pretty tame behavior, yes, but not according to dozens of viewers, who called Channel 4 to complain.
One viewer, a woman named Angie griped:
It was on at 6.30 in the evening when my daughter was watching. It’s not the kind of thing you want people to see. [My daughter] said: ‘Ugh, look at that, Mummy.’ I mean, why are they showing that? They should have turned the cameras off.
Oh, please, it’s not like they were rimming one another.
Responding to the criticism, Stergiopoulos said that viewers are pissed the men weren’t pissing on one another:
They want a gay bitch fight but they’re not getting one. On this show the gay men never get along. But we are cool. We even share a bed.
It’s true – people would much rather see queers clawing than pawing.
