I also have to say to each his own. It truly doesn't change what I took from my four wonderful seasons. I think it's just amazing that so many people feel so many ways, we show we are individuals. I think lot of times it was about fitting in.
I remember people saying they didn't like Brian to me in IMs but were afraid to say so in post in any fandom. I thought that was ridiculous. I have a few things about all that I didn't care for, but to be "bashed" because of it to me was stupid.
If you took one postive thing from the show or learned one new issue about gays, lesbians, straight etc., it was worth it.
