It’s Not about a Gay Kiss – It’s about A KISS on Modern Family – Focuses on the Human Family

The E! blog by Marc Malkin recently published the story “Modern Family: ‘Yes, We Filmed the Gay Kiss Episode’”. As I see it, the big deal about the gay kiss on Modern Family is that it’s no big deal. Likewise, the lesbian relationship in The Kids Are All Right. It’s not merely that such subjects can be treated in public and popular media, but they can be treated without flamboyance and fanfare. The kiss is more about a kiss than it is about a gay kiss.

The issue in The Kids Are All Right is not so much about a lesbian relationship as it is about a relationship. There is cause to rejoice here, as it tells us that America has grown mature enough to consider such fare as pertaining not to particular groups but to the human family.
