When I was putting my thoughts together for my tasting of Shades of Gray, I realised that the personal bias I have against infidelity was somewhat lessened by the author using the theme within the context of one of the character’s growing acceptance of his homosexuality.
Don’t get me wrong because, and no matter what the circumstances, I still hate the act with a passion.
However, in the case of sexuality, I can understand why someone would want to explore a long-denied part of them, especially after they have, for the first time, met the person with whom they have an intense physical and emotional connection.
What do you think?
Are you more willing to be convinced by a character having an m/m or f/f affair outside of a committed m/f relationship than you would be if the ‘liaison’ (translation = me trying not to show my blatant bias) was heterosexual or bisexual in nature?
