| Tasteful representation, unfortunate reaction
I am absolutely astonished to see not one, but TWO, reviews cite the same- sex relationship in this program as a reason they didn't like it. That is utterly laughable in this day and age. Furthermore, to class a Lesbian relationship as "feminist" is like calling all gay relationships "misogynist". It smacks strongly of homophobia and sexism.

The gay relationship between the main character and her partner was tastefully and realistically handled, but to be quite honest I completely forgot that King was gay because that tiny fact was not important to the story beyond illustrating how much she loved her family. The fact that she was gay and in a gay relationships was intended to have as much impact as a straight woman's family life would have had, and people's reaction to it highlights a problem in them and society, not the program.

And I'm hugely disappointed that people seem so ready to decry a film representing a relationship that isn't heterosexual and a main character who isn't male. It's a very dated opinion and completely misses the point of the program. If you're hung up on the fact that King is gay, you are completely and utterly missing the point of this program and should probably watch something less challenging.
