Richard Kramer: “The Gay Characters on New Normal and Modern Family and Glee are snippy-sweet, proudly trivial, commedia dell’arte figures fingering price tags at Design Within Reach on a Sunday afternoon. I enjoy these shows; they’re well-meaning, and well done. But don’t we deserve the whole picture? Aren’t gay people as contradictory, compromised, fucked up as anyone else? I know I am, and I’m pretty sure Thomas Barrow is.”

Read the whole thing here.

This article is fantastic at times — unrelentingly misogynistic at others — but worth the read. I kind of wish the author had shut up about his opinions on the women in DA and focused simply on his beautiful analysis of the character of Thomas Barrow.
