@Balatsoukas Pavlos @Leslaeus I think I understand what you are getting at. While some countries subsidise homosexual parades, there is still an underlying resentment towards homosexuality.

@Timothy Claypole I think what is meant is that a lot of people with regional accents, certainly in the modern world, do not make as much effort to speak well as their counterparts did in the past. If you listen to regional accents of even fourty years ago, they are very different to those of today.

@crazyartist12  Human rights? I do not understand. Like most people, homosexuals will get assaulted if they wear conspicuous clothing or have conspicuous behaviour. Of course that is wrong, but it is not because these people are homosexual. Aside from less developed nations like those in Africa, the world is very tolerant of homosexuality.

I think this show promotes the ancient Greek conception of the homosexual. For example, unlike most homosexual characters in media, Jack has not been emasculated. In many ways, his and Ianto's relationship mirrors Achilles and Patroclus' relationship. Similarly, Vastra and Jenny could be compared to the ancient Greek lesbian poet Sappho. And these representations are in contrast to the LGBT hierarchy which, unfortunately, has tied itself to the sexual freedom movement.
