I absolutely agree with your assessment, but that character IS extremely privileged (they all are) and always has been. He's white, seems to come from wealth and have no financial issues, has a successful career, and has not had any major negative issues in his life stemming from being gay. That's the character, no matter the specific plot line. This show was a story of four self-obsessed, privileged people with few "real world" problems. So what? There are people like that in the world. Every show doesn't have to be about the downtrodden facing hardship after hardship. And there are plenty of shows that showcase that and that are far more realistic. This was not one of those shows and it's kind of ridiculous to expect that. It's like biting into an apple and expecting it to be an orange.
