    Yep. REALLY tough to find fault with any of the couples in the Modern Family portrayals. Ive heard people I know that happen to be gay say they that spend half of the show pointing to either each other about the things that happen or both of them bring up others they know. And the fact is that at times everyone can relate to ALL of the couples and the situations, regardless of whether its "the gay couple" or the others. Its the elements of truth that make the show funny and successful.

    I see my family often, with Claire and Phil's family. Hailey and Alex? Just like my two girls. My 16 year old is just like Hailey - all about how she looks, and doesn't care about grades. My 14 year old is like Alex, just starting to notice boys, but still keeps her nose buried in a book, and she is constantly making fun of my 16 year old for not being as smart as she is.

    Comical accusations from idiots. I've often heard criticisms that Cam and Mitchell have the worst relationship of the three couples and are always sniping at or undermining each other while rarely showing any real affection or intimacy for each other. I don't know if I agree with that argument either, but its got more substance to back it up than these nut jobs.

    I'm 55-years old and have been married since 1981, I've stopped giving years because I am always 1-or2-years off. It's funny, when we were together for 2-or-3-years I could figure it down to the hour . . . now I'm plus or minus a year or two. Same thing with my age . . . I remember saying "I'm 13-and-a-half" . . . now I'm lucky if I'm within one year.

    I've never watched the show myself, but your statement about elements of truth is the not so secret, secret, about why comedy works, and not just sitcoms.

    Not obsolete. Just one option out of many, equally viable options. Gay being okay doesn't make straight somehow bad. Single parents or cohabiting couples doesn't undermine those who wish to marry. We can all live in different ways, and there not just being one way isn't a bad thing.

    It's great because we don't have to air the AFA's dirty laundy. They do it for us.

    The more hate they spew, the more the public will naturally shift to the opposite stance.

    Keep up the good work!

    agreed!

    there are people that simply already know they are a hate group who tries to spread lies.

    there are people that might not be in the know, but they are honest and objective people so they will choose to educated themselves and they will learn and verify the fact the AFA are bat **** insane retards spreading lies and hate

    lastly there are people that will share this hatred and bigotry and thats good too because those morons can be easily identified.

    while depicting heterosexual marriage as "bondage, dreary," and "gloomy."

    I think Jay might disagree.
