Why does everything have to be about gay or straight? Loving someone includes the fear of losing them. Yes, being gay and in a relationship does still come with problems others don't have, sadly. But IMO, this should be about love being love, and fearing losing someone.

Yes, turning it into a preachy PSA instead of writing good dialogue for a young gay man dealing with a unique problem that his straight peers don't even have to think about would be a failuer that would fall squarely on the shoulders of the writers.
Straight people also have to consider losing someone or consider what happens to their life if the person they love more than anything is in a coma.
Married straight couples don't have to worry about being shut away from their partner because the hospital they are in doesn't recognize their union.
Gay couples, even ones with power of attorney and living wills face that possibility.
The "gay storyline" shouldn't end with Will's coming out, and their storylines now cut-and-pasted from the straight couples. Wilson should have some problems that the other couple's don't.
The only way the stigma will ever go away, is if we stop accepting that things are different. Love is love, and fear comes with that.
If they were married, sure, that could be a nice aspect of the story. But they're not. So either way, he wouldn't have automatic access.
