Channel 4 cuts word 'gay' out of The Simpsons

5 posts in this topic

The term was removed from a lunchtime episode after the broadcaster deemed that it was not suitable for a daytime audience.

The line was cut from a 1994 episode called "Homer Loves Flanders" which aired just before 1pm last Sunday.

In the episode Homer Simpson goes to an American football match with his God-fearing neighbour Ned Flanders but is initially embarrassed to be seen with him.

Don't get me wrong ,but the word gay ,and the word queer ,and rainbows,were used for centuries ,beforre they became associated with just one thing. I don't see why everyone gets so uptight about them being used,for anything ,in any other context .

We are far too uptight with all this lame censorship these days .
