Lesbian 'Kiss' On 'Dr. Who' Stirs Complaints And Arouses Support

Dr who lesbian kiss

U.K. communications regulator Ofcom has received six complaints following a lesbian kiss on Doctor Who, reports Gay Star News. Dr who tweet 2

The complaints came after a scene in which Madame Vastra helps to keep her wife Jenny alive in response to a threat from droids that only move when they can sense breath.

One tweet suggested that “the BBC wants to become a porn channel,” while another said that “the Lizard/Lesbian kiss was ‘unnecessary.’”

However, while some viewers were upset at the thought of two women kissing before the 9pm watershed, the majority of tweets were overwhelmingly positive.

@toddlerlex pointed out that “some parents are okay with their kids watching Dr Who's organ stealing robots & impaled body…Lesbian kiss? Complain to Ofcom! Ridic.”

It has also been noted by various commenters that the “lesbian kiss” was essentially CPR and was actually an inter-species kiss.

John Barrowman Kisses a Man, Makes Headlines at the Commonwealth Games: VIDEO

Barrowman

John Barrowman stole the show at the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games last night, by kissing a man:

Writes The Independent:

The gay embrace has been hailed as a snub to homophobia in Commonwealth countries which criminalise homosexuality. The openly gay Doctor Who actor kissed his male “bride” at a mock Gretna Green during the showcase at Celtic Park, Glasgow, last night.

It was an act that flew in the face of anti-homosexual legislation in 42 out of the 53 Commonwealth countries represented at the games.

Those countries include Jamaica, Nigeria, and Uganda.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

UPDATE: Barrowman was the target of attacks on social media following the kiss. He responded:

Italian Mayor Gianluca Buonanno Wants To Ban Gay Kissing And PDA

Gianluca Buonanno and Putin

Well this is bound to go over well and not incite any sort of backlash: Mayor Gianluca Buonanno of Borgosesia and Italian MP for the Northern League has proposed penalizing any forms of homosexual public displays of affection, such as kissing, with a €500 fine. Said Buonanno (rough translation):

Gay kisses in public? No thanks. Not only. From today in my Mayor and MEP offices there will be a photo of Putin. I don't like that two people of the same-sex exchanges public displays of affection. It's a matter of respect. And I am convinced that is morally harmful for children.

Hiding behind vague conditions of "respect" and protecting children? Sounds Putin-esque, for sure.

Buonanno apparently has a reputation for showboating, such as arriving at the European Parliament in a burqa, using a bass as a prop, blowing soap bubbles, and shredding the European Union flag to use as a handkerchief. In other words, he's not such a deep thinker and is more of a hyperventilating grandstander of the Peter LaBarbera/Todd Starnes/Matt Barber variety.
