Apparently SF writer John C Wright was not happy with this. Seeing as he was morally opposed to anything other than procreative sex between a married couple, he issued a long rant about how the network was pandering to the evil Gay Agenda.
Most of you in fandom can imagine the explosion. While there are many explicative-laced rants -- I can provide links, or I can happily give you my own -- I am enamored of Hal Duncan's, linked by Elizabeth Bear and Shweta Narayan. It is wordy, but has some delightful turns of phrase, and profanity is used sparingly (I think there is only 'cut the crap') and in a skillful way to provide emphasis.
( TLDR: I liked Hal Duncan's letter. )
