Basically Bearse's coming out
5 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A lot of younger fans might not realize it, but this episode was very controversial when it aired, as were many MWC episodes. At a time when it was taboo to talk about sex, especially homosexuality, on television. And though she had already come out, remember that for many fans, at a time when the internet barely existed and 90% of Americans couldn't afford a PC anyway, this was the first confirmation of Bearse's sexuality, as she basically played a stereotyped version of herself as the gay "cousin." It was a very brave thing for her to do, and helped people realize that it is OK and normal to be gay. Just my two cents!
