Gay characters on OLTL, Y&R, ATWT ... we smell a trend.
Our favorite beat cop, Oliver Fish, tried to suppress his true feelings by sleeping with Stacy and romancing Layla. But he finally came out, to his friends, family, even at work.

TrishaAnn1957 said "all of this sexual immorality". What do you think all soaps are basically about?? All story lines include it as well as lies, secrets, and anything else they throw in to keep us watching. Are you sure you are watching the same soaps I am? It's always been this way. It's what they are.
Why they feel the need to label it gay or straight I don't know. Why can't it just be about people who are attracted to eachother same sex or otherwise? Thats life. You can't choose who you love. That is the way "life" intended it.
TrishaAnn1957 You said "I hate it and so does my God" God doesn't hate.
Your both being jerks about it
I agree completely with Blessings486. I especially feel really upset about what they did to Patricia Mauceri. She knows her character and how she would react, considering her religious beliefs. Also, I feel that there was no reason to even put that in the story. Why was it allright for Fish's parents to object, but Carlotta couldn't.
I also want to say that I think that the sex scenes have become far too much (for straight as well as gay). I long for the old days when they kissed, went to the bedroom, and left the rest up to your imagination. It doesn't take much writing to fill the show with sex. OLTL has always been my favorite show (since 1970 in high school), but these days I am not very happy with the storylines.
It's just as realistic that Fish could have had a homosexual relationship in college and then realized that wasn't really for him.
Lots of people do a lot worse things and then change their behavior. I know. I know. Everyone will think I'm anti-gay.
That's not it at all. I know I did a lot of things when I was younger that wouldn't represent me today at all. That would have been just as valid a story line as Fish actually being gay, and it would have been unique since so many shows feature gay characters. I like Fish, the character, straight or gay. I just don't understand why it has to be such a big deal. I'm straight but don't feel the need to announce my favorite activities to the world. I feel the same about gay people. What you do in private, should stay private.
Amen. I agree. If gays were not shoved down our throats we would not care or vote against their marriage. But they have Gay parades, I mean you don't see straight parades do ya? They make it an issue for everyone by flaunting their sexuality. I would not like it if straight people like myself paraded their sexuality and had parades either. Live your life, don't preach to me about it, and we will be fine. It is too bad, I won't be watching OLTL any longer until this whole gay thing stops, and if it doesn't oh well, I can get along without t.v.
Okay, that's stupid x]
You know, if straight people really wanted to, they could have a straight parade, they just choose not to.
Nobody is shoving anything down your throat.
I guess you're not watching oltl anymore then, whatever haha
Oh that was mature.
Wow, can't believe the homophobia....have watched soaps for years, I don't recall objections to the highly sexual relationships among the young and beautiful straight characters....these "God-fearing" writers are hateful and total hypocrites....and useless, ignorant unintelligent and highly embarrassing to read. Period.
