What Are Gay Panic Jokes, and How Do They Work? Explained!

Joel Keller questioned numerous writers from favorite shows why they stopped producing “gay panic” gags in a well-written essay.

He requested the writers to describe what a “gay panic” joke or storyline is for individuals who aren’t sure what it entails. DeAnn Helin, the co-showrunner of The Middle, was among them.

She explained that hearing a ‘gay panic’ joke in an earlier TV show or movie makes viewers almost leap out of their seats because they are caught off guard. She went on to say,

“It hits your ear and makes you cringe, especially when it’s a beloved show. And it’s remarkable how shows from not that long ago were still doing that kind of storyline. “

Unfortunately, these jokes are rapidly becoming extinct. He wrote that these types of jokes don’t seem to be a topic of debate or discourse in the writers’ room.

Heline alluded to a previous episode of The Middle in which Axl (Charlie McDermott) discovered that his first kiss as a kid had been an accident with his buddy Sean (Beau Wirick). “She said,” she explained.

“We liked the story because it was just funny that two good friends found this out much later in life and it was embarrassing, etc. But as we were breaking it, we did discuss many times if it was “gay panic” storyline. Certainly none of us wanted that. We worked really hard to make sure we weren’t falling into those old stereotypes. But we still did almost pull the storyline because we just didn’t want it to be misinterpreted in any way. “

Most writers strive to avoid causing controversy by creating a dumb gay joke because LGBT communities are receiving a lot of support. That said, when they do make a homosexual joke, the gay characters they create are more authentic and relatable—which isn’t a negative thing in my opinion!

‘The Middle’ Says Goodbye to McDermott

Most television shows don’t last more than five seasons, let alone six. When the show completed its ninth and final season, it was a huge triumph for Charlie and the rest of the cast and crew.

On the 12th of November 2017, in between the final season (9) of The Middle, Charlie spoke with Sioux City Journal, reminiscing about the show while also saying goodbye. According to him,

“In the beginning, I was really very, very self-conscious and insecure. Around season four or five, I just started to try to have fun. And that’s what it’s been – a lot of fun. “

Expressing his gratefulness to his co-star, who became his friends in the span of the show, he said goodbye to the show. And the show finished on 22 May 2018
