    I think everyone should watch this entire episode which aired Feb. 9, 1971. Then post your comments. It's an amazing episode; it deals with the fem vs. masculine gay argument. All three parts are below.

    Synopsis:
    Archie gets into an argument with Mike over one of his friends, whose clothing and demeanor are rather foppish. Archie says that the guy must be homosexual. But for as weird as the man is, he's not gay. However, Archie's in for quite a surprise when one of his drinking buddies, an ex-football player, reveals he's gay.

    You're repeating yourself (see: http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/1097094), but for a good cause!

    Darn, can you believe I forgot I posted this? It was someone's comment about Happy Endings that made me think of it again. Senility, age 47.

    Oddly, what have we seen in the past 40 years that can even compare to this?

    I'm glad you asked! As I posted in that other thread:

    [There were] other gay episodes featuring the recurring character "Beverly," played for laughs in "her" introductory episode (below), and with pathos in Beverly's final episode where Edith questions the existence of god after Beverly is BEATEN TO DEATH FOR BEING "DIFFERENT." A fatal gay bashing as serious fodder on a 35 year old sitcom episode, plus watching a TV bigot evolve on gay issues - talk about groundbreaking!

    Here are the clips for the introductory episode (Beverly appears at the start of Part 2):







    I couldn't find clips of the other "Beverly" episodes but they're called "Beverly Rides Again" and "Edith's Crisis of Faith."
