In prison sex has nothing to do with one's sexual orientation. That's the way it goes. You make do with what's available. Blake Berris said that what happened to Nick in prison is what made him homophobic. It's obvious that he was raped or pimped out. When it comes to Days, it doesn't matter if another show already did it.
I would take issue with this since it plays up the idea that homosexuality is not a choice but in fact a reaction to some trauma like a psychological condition. OR if they make Nick be suffering from PTSD which is making him interpret this situation that way, and have him realize it was wrong and recant it. This show fumbled the ball on rape, and it made me angry. If the screw this up, I definitely will be cancelling this on my DVR. Gay people have it hard enough. They do not need a show screwing them over.
But they're not trying to say homoSEXUALITY is caused by trauma. They're trying to say Nick's homoPHOBIA is a result of trauma. Maybe the writers end goal is to have Nick finally realize what happened to him in prison has nothing to do with Will and Sonny and their relationship. That is, if their goal is to redeem Nick.
