It really doesn't bother me much that ED doesn't want to name or label Rober's sexual orientation. What really upsets me about it is that they don't make Robert try to explain what he feels. Like someone would tell him: you're gay and he'd yell at them "I am not gay" and that's it. It's stupid, he's been sleeping w/ a guy for months, why can't they have him give an explanation, not a label but a reason why?! Do I make any sense?
Yeah I 100% understand where you’re coming from and agree. I’ve already shared why I feel bothered by the #NoLabels stuff, but there’s really a thousand awesome ways to tell stories like that since they ARE true to life. But Emmerdale isn’t telling this sexuality story in an awesome way–at least not yet. I do have high hopes because it seems like this is a longterm story, so I suspect it will he addressed over time. But I will be seriously upset if Robert is never given the chance to actually DISCUSS his feelings for men–sexually, romantically, with Aaron specifically, any of it. Audiences need to hear words from his mouth about how he’s feeling, and these words don’t even have to he concrete words like “I am bisexual” or “I am gay.” I just want him to think OUT LOUD about his confusion and everything else. So yeah nonnie I totally get you.
