This is why “Shameless” really stands out from the rest of the modern series; it uses the theme of homosexuality not just as a simple plot device, but as a real call to revolutionize the conception of this theme by the television
In his 1994 paper, Claiming the Pardoner: Toward a Gay Reading of Chaucer's Pardoner's Tale, Steven F. Kruger begins with an intriguing reference to Allen Barnett's 1990 short-story Philostorgy, Now Obscure. Barnett, according to Kruger, understands the Pardoner to be "a voice that might angrily challenge or campily subvert the legacies of homophobia" (Barnett 118). Kruger, however, is skeptical of such an interpretation of the Pardoner, because of the homophobic way in which Chaucer wrote him. Thus, Kruger is concerned that if the Pardoner is "claimed", the modern gay community might involve themselves in this bigotry. In order to define the Pardoner's position in gay history and grasp Chaucer's intentions with this character, Kruger aims to understand medieval homophobia and homosexuality.

In conflating the many concepts of sex as well as gender, it has been proved though historical studies and anthropological studies that there are different forms of gender identities and expressions which are not at all times linked to the biological sex of that person. Hermaphrodite, for instance can be used to describe the concept of homosexual men in the society but the truth is it just conflates the intersex conditions of sexual desire and the sex-role behavior physically. Understanding gender drives the understanding of sexuality in many of the cultures and thus makes it easy to understand homosexual and heterosexual. Many of the cultures consider homosexual to consist of only people of the same sex and their biological bodies are not put into much consideration. In most of the Native American cultures, same-sex relationships do not traditionally mean a union of people of the same gender; rather it separates the two concepts, that is, the biology concept and the concept of gender identity (Arlene, 2013).
