And even if not, there are often couples in the background anyway, that might not be as obvious, but they're still there. Parents of characters, for example.
I'm pretty sure it would decrease homophobia by at least a bit, as people wouldn't see it as abnormal anymore and be more understanding of it. If they saw it as a normal healthy relationship rather than a freakish sin against nature I'm sure they'd be more tolerant of it.
Yea. I don't think that should keep us from doing it anyway though!
And thanks! Merry Christmas to you as well
