I don't know about you but as much as I'd like to see them sharing a really touching moment on TV, there are many kids watching along with parents on TAR. To me it's not a question of straight or gay, by the sound of it, it wasn't just a quick peck on the lips - according to Steve of Debra and Steve, it was more like a long-turn-twisting, maybe including holding each other's faces with their hands. Maybe we should ask this question to our resident TAR4 contestants, Geezer, Steve and Dave were all there, so I presumed they had to 'endure' that scene, LOL! Seriously, think for a sec., kids imitate all kind of things from what they saw on TV. You know, the last thing we need is to hear complaints that R&C have made kids 'gay' when a 10 year old start kissing every boy he meets at school. And trust me, some 'organizations' which shall remain anonymous would make a case out of this. Too much trouble for nothing. For a Primetime show like this, the rating just have to be G, not even PG 13. Arguably, there might have been some nudity but not in a sexual way so it was o.k. Say if it were Kelly and Jon doing that kiss, most likely it would have been censored too.
On the other hand, some people would be disgusted by it and it may turn away some audience in the future. The disgust could be sub-conscious. To know what I mean, click here: http://www.canoe.ca/JamMusic/aug28_mtvawards-ap.html
Britney Spears and Madonna going about it and I am sure while many want to see this, some don't and to some others, it freaks them out.
