Our Crumbling Civilization: Zarf's Dilemma Edition

Zarf, a character played by Jeffrey Carlson, right, is a flambouyant rock star on the soap opera All My Children who's on his way to becoming a woman, thanks to the transgenerding process ... a process that makes me cross my legs tightly whenever I think about it.

Anyway, AP tells us Zarf kisses a lesbian character (Bianca) this week. So is he really a gay man who's kissing a gay woman (and why?), or is he a gay woman-to-be who's kissing a lesbian woman , or is he a man who likes women and can't get them, so he's changing into a woman so he can become a lesbian and get women?

And what of poor Bianca? Does she now have to question her own somewhat confused sexuality?

These are the messy thoughts All My Children has left us with. Thank you very much, Exec Producer Julie Carruthers. Why is she dumping this appalling mess on a reportedly Christian nation? Well, she explains to AP:

"All My Children" was looking for something new, and knows its audience is always interested in anything to do with sexuality .... "After 36 years, you start rehashing," she said. "It's inevitable. We didn't want to fall back on the baby-switch story again."

Oh, please! Just rehash the baby-switch story!
