We wonder if the GLAAD Awards have a "No Take-Backs" rule because we're sure they're side-eyeing Days Of Our Lives right now!
The soap had been giving us life over the past year with their beautifully crafted story following Will Horton's coming-out process.
Now the show's newly hired writers, Gary Tomlin and Chris Whitesell, are turning the whole story on its head and having Will have sex with a girl. Classy.
More after the jump.
Will's portrayer, Chandler Massey, who won a Daytime Emmy award for his work in Will's gay storyline this year did his best to explain his character's actions, saying:
"Will is battling self-esteem issues. So when you get two people who have some sort of romantic history in a room together, and both are feeling insecure about themselves, they seek any comfort they can find."
We doubt most gay men (who've come out and accepted themselves as Will has this past year) would suddenly start chasing vagina just because they're feeling down.
Could the character simply be bisexual? Sure. But that's not the story that's been written for the past year, and new writers deciding to come on-board and play that card out of nowhere feels cheap.
What do you think, Instincters? Is this a bad call on the part of the soap?
