The Peter Serafinowicz Show



From The Peter Serafinowicz Show--a comedy skit show (BBC).

Some criticised the generally "gay inclusive" skit show for using gay sex as an easy laugh or for 'gross out' humour. The debate between acceptable versus homophobic humour seems to be a common one. 

But sociologically speaking, isn't either of these a better option that outright bigotry? When people really consider something unacceptably taboo--they don't find it funny. So... can we call that progress?

That, I think, is the question.
