Default Who do you Agree with, Kemal or Roberto?

Quite an Interesting and Underrated Row in BB6 That Rarely gets Discussed.

Shortly after all the Housemates had entered, they were all in the Sofas getting to know each other in a Game of Truths. Kemal Revealed to the Group that his Parents were Unaware of his Sexuality. ''They Do Now!'' He Remarked.

This Revelation seemed to be Playing on Roberto's Mind and he kept it to himself for a few days. On Day 10 after Maxwell Quizzed Derek about Whether or Not his Father had Known about his Sexuality, Roberto once again Brought up the Subject, Prompting an Infuriated Kemal to Snap which led a heated argument between the Pair.

Roberto Believed that Kemal was disrespectful and inconsiderate to his Parent's feelings by Revealing his Sexuality to 12 Strangers and Millions of People Watching at Home before them. Kemal, On the other Hand, Believed that it was nobody else's Decision to Reveal his Sexuality but his.

Who do you think was in the Right?

Both in a way. Of course its Kemals decision when to come out, but I think its quite ****ty to do it on TV to strangers if your parents don't even know. However, I suspect his parents were well aware anyway..so both, but Roberto more I think.

Kemal easily. I'm a fan of both but unless you're old fashioned or homophobic I can't see why anyone would side with Roberto about that. Coming out is a really important moment in a person's life that they'll be nervous about because of the prejudice LGBT receive sometimes to this day. Kemal was the youngest BB6 housemate just barely an adult and not fully matured yet so coming out to his parents was always going to be a challenge. Also didn't he come out to his parents anyway? "My parents don't know about my sexuality. THEY DO NOW!"

And Roberto was completely going for a low blow as well. The argument was initially about how controlling he was of the house but then he turned it around to lecture Kemal about something he's insecure about. Roberto, and any straight person, will never fully understand how hard it is for an LGBT person to come out so it's none of his business. Roberto was old fashioned about everything anyway so this doesn't really go against my thoughts on him as a housemate but it still means Kemal was in the right.

To each his own way, but I do agree with Roberto that it wasn't totally fair to his parents. Since Kemal has already decided to come out at the time, he might as well have come out to his parents before going to BB.
I guess it was Kemal's way of avoiding the feedback from his parents, which sooner or later (by his eviction) he had to face it anyway

I think for Kemal actually having that talk with his parents must've been a daunting thought. You have to remember his parents were both from a different time and culture and them accepting him probably seemed unthinkable and he was probably genuinely terrified by how they might react. As a straight man Roberto could not possibly imagine how hard that would've been for Kemal to do. His lack of empathy for Kemal's situation was gross and showed that he was more interested in having a go at kemal than actually having a conversation about it.

I liked Roberto but nobody has a right to lecture somebody else on how and when they should come out, especially not a heterosexual who never has to actually do it.

Thinking about this, I never actually 'came out' to my parents. I just turned up one day with my girlfriend My parents were very live and let live people though so I didn't feel the need, and they welcomed her without a second thought. Being bi is probably a bit different to being gay and coming out though.

Kemal. It was probably a very daunting thought to come out to his parents who like Armand said are of a different time and culture. Once Kemal was in the house, he’d kind of ‘left his old life behind’ in a sense and so may have felt comfortable coming out now he had a new life and did not have to rely on his parents for financial security etc should their reaction be negative.

I sided with Kemal watching it. However I can completely see why a parent would be mortified and feeling all kinds of guilt and shame if their son/daughter saw fit to come out on television but not to them. It'd probably feel like you'd failed them in a way, and without knowing what their relationship was like it's hard to pick a side.

They both had points but Roberto came from a place of bad intent, him and Kemal were going through a horrid patch at the time (and lbr Roberto was borderline unbearable at this stage). Had this of been week 4 and it was just them two alone I believe it would have been different

Kemal.

Being concerned for Kemal's parents and how they'd deal with the news is essentially just enabling the idea that having a homosexual child is embarrassing/wrong.

Roberto & Kemal are both right tbh but Kemal is more right? Kemal gets the final say and it's not Roberto's place even if it's fair for him to have his view on it. Like you can't say Kemal's wrong about how he wanted to do it, that's up to him.

It's a bit similar to telling people you're getting married in a way (I get there's more of a stigma to coming out and it's not the same situation but just similar in the scenarios of revealing something big and personal to your loved ones). It's fair for someone to think it's disrespectful if you told others, especially strangers / millions of people, before you told your parents about getting married but regardless of how someone else views it, you can go about that however you want. It's still those peoples' choice about how they want to reveal it and who they want to reveal it to first, etc.
