I hate to admit it but daytime soaps have been a guilty pleasure of mine since childhood because I recall my grandmother watching all of them when she would watch me after school. My mother AND father were so hooked that they would tape the episodes on VHS tapes and we'd watch them in the evenings after dinner when I was a teen. Now as an adult, I'll stream them online when I have the chance. Y&R seems to have the most staying power of the few remaining soaps, but I was much more partial to GH, OLTL and AMC back in the day. GH is lagging behind but at least it isn't cancelled like the others.
As a homemaker, I strenuously object to pandering to the lesbian agenda. This show has taken audience exploitation from harmless fantasy to vulgar human dysfunctionality. It seems few have the courage of conviction in resisting the popular agenda!
