** Tara's alters in season 1 seem to act as the antagonists, being the direct cause of pretty much every conflict, with T especially being destructive. By Season 2 the alters, for the most part, show themselves as being good intentioned as coping mechanisms, or at the very least they're not outright malicious.

Added DiffLines:

* ComingOutStory: In a rather unusual twist from the norm, Marshall has a coming out story during season 2, even though he was already openly gay to everyone from the start of season 1. But he spends the season having a very awkward experimentation with a female acquaintance before reaffirming that yep, he's still gay.


* AllGaysArePromiscuous: Every male gay character has at least some experimentation in the past or present with drugs and sex. Even little Marshall gets a whiff of cocaine, threesomes and trying to dip a toe in anonymous public sex spots, where he runs into his gay neighbor whose boyfriend left him in a coke-induced mid-life crisis.

* CampGay: Lionel, the queen of the 'Gayble'.'Gayble', who seems to compensate any insecurity and harassment he faces as flamboyant openly gay student by throwing venomous catty insults to girls and sexually inappropriate flirtations to all the boys that cross his path.
