    Outrage at 'Home And Away' lesbian storyline

    A planned lesbian love affair between two characters on Home And Away has outraged conservative family groups.

    In scenes to air later this month in Australia, Summer Bay policewoman Charlie Buckton (Esther Anderson) will begin a relationship with female deck hand Joey Collins (Kate Bell).

    However, the same sex storyline has angered conservative family groups with many arguing the relationship is inappropriate for the soap’s 7pm PG-rated timeslot.

    "[Home And Away] continue to market to kids and they continue to develop quite sexualised plot lines," Pro-Family Perspectives director Angela Conway told the Herald Sun. "The plotlines that young kids and teenagers should be presented with should be about really authentic relationships that are not just sexualised."

    Anderson, 29, defended the controversial storyline, saying: "You learn pretty much everything at school. I don't think it's like I'm lifting the lid on something they don't already know about.

    "To me there's no difference - love's love. The fact that your partner's the same sex is no different. You just want to be loved."

    Seen it coming for Charlie but didn't think it wud be with Joey until her sexuality was revealed! First I thought Charlie was going to get really close to Martha and end up trying something!

    Okay Joey is supposed to be 18, whereas Charlie is 26!!

    Lol. I suppose it's quite a big gap then, but it's not outrageous.

    No but when Charlie has such a position in the community the age gap is even bigger to be honest irrelavant of whether its with a man or woman!

    There is no proof that Nicole is leaving! And to think that a character will just leave Summer Bay because their parent is leaving is overlooking that Home And Away is built on the whole guardian taking in left children since 1988!!

    Belle is the most annoying character at the moment and I used to like her. Martha has the worlds fastest growing hair, it will probably be back to its original length in a week.
    I like Nicole as well, didn't she used to be in Neighbours as the blind Timmins girl? (sorry has probably already been answered)

    Nicole played Anne in Neighbours. She was blind and they found out that her and Bree had been swapped at birth. lols.
    Martha's hair is definitely growing at an unnatural pace!
