More moral outrage

Latest BBC depravity news: John Barrowman has been forced to apologise after flashing his genitals on a live BBC show...on Radio 1.

No, you couldn't see anything on the webcam either.

Insane, I tell you. The country has gone insane. Well, no, because only one person complained - the media (including the BBC) has gone insane.

The Mail on Sunday has a hilarious article about it. It's misleadingly headlined "Another scandal at the BBC as Dr Who star John Barrowman apologises for exposing himself during live broadcast", and starts "Days after the BBC promised to clean up its act following the Andrew Sachs debacle, it has been forced into a fresh apology over lewd behaviour. Doctor Who actor John Barrowman exposed himself during a live broadcast at 8.15pm on Sunday. Although the programme was on Radio 1, pictures were also relayed to online listeners via a webcam" and then has a large picture of Barrowman, meaning you have to scroll down to see that no, his bits weren't actually visible on the webcam. God, I hate the Daily Mail.

I don't have much time for Barrowman's show-offery, but really.

He is openly gay and in 2006 'married' long-term partner Scott Gill in a civil ceremony. Since then he has appeared determined to seek notoriety.

... There are no words.

These 'scandals' are nothing more than ridiculous moral panics. I just wish everyone saw it this way. Sigh.

They were probably complaining because they couldn't see anything.

I don't have time for his show-offery, either, and since I'm surprised he hasn't gotten into trouble for this before and dismayed that he hasn't worked out by now that exposing yourself at every fun opportunity actually isn't cool, I've decided not to care and to have no sympathy despite the stupid news reporting.
