Let me start by saying that my beloved brother is gay and I truly believe that this episode is offensive to homosexuals and soldiers. The starter plot was great and reminded me of classic simpsons. I couldn't wait to see how it turned out and was shockingly disappointed. The simpsons used to be about springfield and the wacky adventures of their whimsical characters (many of which are gay and always have been) So why would they choose to make this clumsy, nonsensical episode where Grampa Simpson randomly goes on a strange quest to find out if he may be gay? Because now the writers like to crowbar politics into every episode, the entirety of America has been crammed into Springfield which has now been swallowed whole. The Simpsons used to be more veiled and creative when it came to politics but now every line is just a sharp jab at non-liberals. Again, my brother is gay, the simpsons have several wonderful gay characters who I thoroughly enjoy and they have created great episodes in the past which feature gay storylines. This is not one of them. Shameless, ridiculous plot to prove...what, exactly? The worst part is the end when the boys are repeatedly mocking the Iraq war. Any neutrality they once mastered is now gone, seemingly forever. I am done with new simpsons for a while. I miss when they were intricate, lovable characters and not just mouthpieces for raging liberals.

Forced Gay virtue signalling

Even the Simpsons has gone woke. And it was a terrible episode If they wanted to make a character gay, they should had made a new one, rather than using Abe, whom is shown in many many other episodes to be STRAIGHT

Seems like Simpsons will soon become nothing more than a a pulpit

Inconsistent

Really strange episode, where we witness two men committing on-the-job sexual assaults. One is seemingly excused for it, and seen as a misunderstood victim of sorts, and a hero. The other gets horribly poisoned over time, in a way meant to elicit laughter and applause from the viewer.

I thought assault was assault.

Woke crap

Grandpa Simpson was once shown as a woman after mixing up some medicine, long way back in the heyday of the series. It was hysterical. Specially when he flirted with Jasper.

This thing, on the other, is just the same woke agenda that's been killing once upon a time funny shows. Plus, it's also quite disrespectful with WW2 veterans.

When you're watching like 12-15 seasons and you can see fantastic humour in those episodes. Then you come to 30 season and all you can see gays promotion, Russian spy, Donald Trump....
