Description:

Jeste li kada muvali oženjenog čovijeka? Ili možda bili u vezi sa nekim oženjenim muškarcem?
Posledice toga mogu da budu zaista pogubne i neobično teške. Nemojte mi samo reći "pa nisam ništa uradio , što i on nije htio"
Bilo bi fer sa vaše strane da prije nego se upustite u avanturu sa nekim ko ima porodicu i dijecu barem razmislite koliko taj čovijek rizikuje sa vama. Ne kažem da u svakoj priči ne postoji i druga strana medalje, ali ako vas je strast ili emocija ponijela za nekim ko je "100% str8" najmanje što možete učiniti je da ispoštujete maksimalnu diskreciju i svojim ponašanjem ne dovede u pitanje integritet čovijeka sa kojim ste nešto započeli.


Slušao sam priče raznih pedera koji se međusobno šale kako su maznuli nekog oženjenog lika i kako im je super sa njim. S gađenjem bih odlazio jer takav mentalni pederluk teško podnosim. Kompromitacija bilo kojeg čovijeka na bilo koji način je stvarno pederska ljigavština. Posebno od likova koji su stupili u vezu sa nekim kome je potrebna takva diskrecija. Ako već on rizikuje toliko mnogo ispoštuje bar to elementarno pravilo.


Kakve sve posledice mogu da proisteknu iz takvih priča pogledajte u ovoj BBC - jevoj seriji!
Moja iskustva sa oženjenim muškarcima su zaista velika, što več stalni čitaoci ovog bloga mogu zaključiti iz dosadašnjih tekstova.
Vjerujte nikada nisam niti bih doveo u pitanje ljudski integritet čovijeka sa kojim djelim zajedničke emocije niti njegove porodice. Radije bih raskinuo svaki kontakt nego doveo u pitanje djetinjstvo bilo čijeg djeteta, ili bilo čije porodice. Ako već imate vezu sa nekim ko ima obaveza prema familiji, onda se pomirite sa tim ili se ne upuštajte u to. Okanite se priča, ovaj ili onaj je peder, bio sam sa njim ili znam da je sa nekim.
Neke stvari ipak sačuvajte samo za sebe! U suprotnom bićete zaista samo obični ljigavi peder!

Serija je titlovana na španskom , ali ipak je nije problem pogledati!

Like others in this drama series believability is often stretched to the limit. At face value this tries to be a sensitive portrayal of a married man who discovers he is gay but unfortunately it is let down by following every gay-drama cliché in the book.

There is no indication at all that Charlie is gay until he is propositioned by work mate Tom and this leaves the unfortunate impression that he wasn't interested in men until he was 'seduced'. A tired old banality. The gay club Tom later takes him to is ludicrously portrayed as a place where men in drag, erotic male dancers and violent queer-bashers all share the same space. Any sense of reality is lost when Charlie gets mugged by an abusive homophobe in the toilet of the gay club. Simply unbelievable! This unrealistic scene only happens so the crime gets reported to the police and Charlie's gay encounter will be exposed.

Charlie rings a gay help line that is ridiculously portrayed as some kind of sex line that charges premium rates. The ensuing massive phone bill is important for the plot but is a gross misrepresentation of any real gay advice service. When the police become involved in investigating the earlier mugging the writer seems to be unaware of changes in police attitudes in the last 10 years. In this drama the police betray Charlie's 'gay secret', ultimately to his son, resulting in one of those awful scenes from gay dramas of the 1980's involving lots of shouting, punching, blood and violence where gay characters loudly confess all to an assembled group of startled heterosexuals. All a bit naff really.

Throughout the whole piece there is a nasty feeling that if only he hadn't had his brief encounter with Tom everything would be fine. Nowhere is this more evident than the scene where Charlie is confronted by his son.

The acting throughout was excellent but the plot lacked realism. A wasted opportunity.
