Ryan Murphy Insults Modern Family: “The Men Don’t Kiss”
Ryan Murphy, the creator of Glee, recently spoke out against the hit show Modern Family, saying that, it’s “ridiculous” that the gay couple doesn’t kiss. This is not the first time that Murphy has vocalized his opinion about gay characters on television. He also spoke out against Ramin Satoodeh, the writer for Newsweek, when Satoodeh claimed that gay actors can’t play straight. At the time, Murphy said that he deliberately cast Jonathan Groff as Lea Michele’s love interest in Glee, fully aware that Groff is an out-and-proud homosexual. So is Murphy just a complainer, or is he a gay-rights champion? I vote the latter. One of my favorite shows of all-time is Showtime’s Queer as Folk, which not only involved straight male actors kissing other men on screen, but full-on sexcapading. I realize Modern Family is network television, so the sexcapades must be kept to a minimum, but if your gonna play gay, then be prepared to play gay.
