These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: The Simpsons S 8 E 15 Homers Phobia
Fair for Its Day: At the time, it delivered what was considered a largely positive view of gays, with the message that gays should be accepted as human beings. However, viewed today, that same episode can come across as offensive for its stereotypical depiction of gays.
Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: "Gays are people too, and parents need to be more accepting of their child's sexuality, as long as it's not with children or animals" is a message that a lot of people need to hear, whether or not you think the episode is any good.
