We've had gay members of DR state that they have had to experience a similar situation to what Will went through (gay men sleeping with an old female best friend/former girlfriend after coming out) and that it's a very real and believing experience, even if it might not happen that much, it happens and it SHOULD be showcased as part of a gay storyline on a soap opera. I've had issues with the gay storyline, but this isn't one of them. It's a soap so some level of angst and drama needs to come into play with these stories, throwing this drama in that affects so many players is at the end of the day good soap IMHO. I had problems with Will's coming out story being more about other players that it was about Will himself early on and I find Wilson to be pretty vanilla. The ONLY part of the story that actually showcased some of Will's feelings was when he slept with Gabi because he felt he screwed up and rejected Sonny and made him feel like he didn't want him. Everything else about the story was how Sami reacted, how Ej was injected when he didn't need to be and how much of a fuck up Will perceived his own father to be after initially being happy that his dad was supportive. So yeah, there are issues with how the gay storyline was written but I don't think having this story be part of it is going to be one of them.
