Why is Will & Grace held up as a groundbreaking TV show? I've heard it described as a positive portrayal of homosexuals on TV, but that one 'Jack' guy is as stereotypically 'gay' as you can get! He acts like a sissy, he prances around, likes Cher, and so on. Why doesn't the gay community get upset about this? Why is 'Will' so non-sexual that it isn't even worth making his character gay?
