To be frank, no. They could have gotten the point across by having Traceur in bed with one woman and Rivai in bed with a man she had just met the night before. Would that somehow have been more acceptable? Considering your (apparently) anti-gay mentality, it seems like it.

I applaud you for screening what your kids watch beforehand. A lot of parents don't get that involved. That said, I think you were being a bit unrealistic expecting a show put on NBC in the 9-11pm timeslot to be appropriate for children. This is the same slot shows like "Las Vegas" and "Law and Order" are shown, not exactly kids fare IMO.

Aaaaand here we go. See, you're equating homosexuality with prostitution when the two do not belong in the same category. One is illegal (in most states), the other is not. Prostitution is not a "chosen lifestyle", it is the last bastion of some who are desperate and others who are forced into the situation via sexual slavery (among other reasons). Homosexuality is a lifestyle (I will let others more knowledgable than myself argue if it's chosen or genetic). Just because you are homosexual, it does not make you immoral. I have many gay friends and they are law abiding, loving, hard working people - in other words: they're good human beings. Such statements will draw ire as they come across as judgemental and ill informed.

Up to a point, I'll agree with you on this. However, I should point out that there is a rating system in place for these shows AND it was shown in a relatively late time slot on purpose. The implication by being put in that slot is that it is not necesarily family oriented programming. I'm quite sure the demographic this show was aimed at are young males 18 and up.

You can think that homosexuality is immoral all you want. However, equating it with illegal activity such as child pornography (which violates the child and is illegal) is incorrect. That is not a matter of opinion, that is a matter of law.
