    She can’t afford to be homophobic with a face like that

    Homophobic is such a silly word. I’m all for the gays/lesbians/bi’s and that but it’s stupid if you think you can “come out of the closet” and everyone will be accepting because it doesn’t work like that; some people are bound to feel a wave of this word “homophobic” because to be a homosexual is different and a new experience to some people.

    Bless her, I think she just doesn’t know better than her God ‘cus she’s always been Christian and she’s old fashioned, I’m gay but I don’t get defensive when I see this kinda stuff.

    I love how people are saying it’s bad for it to be man on man but it’s ok if it’s two girls. There’s nothing wrong with it either way. You can’t condradict yourself just because you’d find the girl action ‘hot’ it’s totally ignorant.

  17. Sasha2999 says:

    haha this is really interesting clip, to think Dot’s attitude was pretty common back then (although there are still idiots now who think like she did, they need to get with the 21st century). Anyway I’m glad Dot changed in later episodes!
