Black Sails, Captain Flint and the Homophobes
One of my favorite TV shows on these days is Black Sails by far. This past weekend they threw in a zinger that really ruffled the sexually insecure among us by showing that Captain Flint had an affair with Miranda Barlows husband that cost him a place in the Royal Navy and his lover committed to an asylum for “grief”. This apparently, despite the plethora of lesbian action, ruffled the homophobes who watch the show. Seriously, I don’t see the problem. Gods forbid if some reality is thrown into the show. It’s not pushing the so-called gay agenda, you can stop watching show and not contribute to it anymore or you can enjoy the story being told, keyword being story. It’s a story like any other and deserves some attention.
