Murdoch Mysteries – Homosexual bias

Following on from my previous post, I want to talk about homosexuality when it comes to Murdoch Mysteries.

In the era that it is set, homosexuality was illegal. I do not want to go into the rights and wrongs of that but just to say that I have neither issue with either sex indulging in that type of sexual behaviour; each to their own.

In one episode, it was discovered that Chief Inspector Giles was gay. He was imprisoned as a result.

But Dr Grace was known to be a sapphist and she admitted as such. Nothing but nothing was said about that and she was not jailed.

Yet again, it shows the gender bias of the series and the purposeful titillation that the writers ensure are inserted into the screenplay.

Need I say more
