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 (though that would be nothing compared to what "Three Gays of the Condo" had).
- "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: In one scene, Moe says "Used to be if you wanted to make a boy into a man you'd send him off to war. But there aren't even any wars anymore. Thank you very much, Warren Christopher!". Then, The War on Terror happened...
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Bart does become a party animal (complete with Hawaiian shirt) in the episode Bart To The Future.
- 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.
