Where have my morals gone?
2 July 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I loved "Playing it Straight" - yet I knew i shouldn't. I loved it because it showed gay guys on mainstream television, yet after thinking after each show - i realised it was probably offensive towards homosexuals. Gay guys were in some circumstances certainly seen as "lesser men" but not directly. The main problem i feel was the reinforcement of stereotypes. Barely any of the men attempted to challenge the gay stereotype, and through the one that did (Ben, the eventual winner) - it was too predictable that such a straight acting man would indeed be gay. On reflection, it would be interesting if a similar program was created with the roles being reversed - and gay men having to spot the straight man.... see the reaction to that one...
