Billy Crystal takes a brave stand against gay sex scenes on TV

Billy Crystal has a bone to pick with the shows that feature scenes of a homosexual nature, complaining to the Television Critics Association that they’re not “to his taste,” whatever that means. “Sometimes I think, ‘Ah, that’s too much for me.’ Sometimes it’s just pushing it a little too far for my taste — and I’m not going to reveal to you which ones they are.” Sure, but we can guess. The biggest possible offenders are “How to Get Away with Murder” and “Looking,” but I don’t know what shows run to Crystal’s “taste” level. “I hope people don’t abuse it and shove it in our face to the point where it feels like an everyday kind of thing,” he added.

Listen, Billy, if you’re going to employ neoconservative dog whistles in your responses, the correct phrasing is “shove it down our throats,” not “shove it in our faces.” I’m sure Fox News can provide you with a handy cheat sheet if you need. And as far as gay scenes feeling like “an everyday kind of thing”? That’s sort of the point.
