GH tends to get too preachy with current issues. Im a strong supporter of gay rights. But I have a BIG problem with gender identity issues involving young children. It’s a slippery slope that makes me uncomfortable. For a show that’s very cast heavy and stories going in a million different directions, they just need to stick to good story telling and save the debates for the talk shows.

I couldn’t agree more… as has been posted before… is this subject matter a little bit too much for this oh so young actor to mind ?!?! I’ve posted that TPTB AND frank / shelly / Chris NEED to address this. this actor does not need the unnecessary attention… even if he’s just doing his job
