Great News. Gays On TV in Higher Percentage than In Reality

This isn't a surprise at all but I'll share it anyway just to get the facts and figures to you. Last year, 2.9 percent of television characters were gay or bisexual. Now, this year, according to CBS, that number has risen to 4.1 percent.

Hmmm. Wonder why.

I know in many quarters, this will be seen as something to celebrate. I've got to wonder if in any of these shows there's a character with problems associated with homosexuality including HIV, STD's, and suicide. Or is it just that ridiculous view that Joe Biden's favorite show Will and Grace where the gay person is introduced into the scene to mutter some double entendre that makes the studio audience feel like they're part of the in and naughty crowd.

This is all obviously part of the major push for gay marriage. I'd suspect that when "Glee" gets cancelled those numbers won't necessarily dip at all. The left has made it clear that entertainment is secondary to their favorite causes. They'd clearly have the approbation of their peers than an actual hit.

  1. Its not just the homosexual marriage push. Virtually every aspect of the moral law is attacked by primetime television shows.

    Across the broadcast networks, verbal references to non-marital sex outnumbered references to sex in the context of marriage by nearly 3 to 1; and scenes depicting or implying sex between non-married partners outnumbered scenes depicting or implying sex between married partners by a ratio of nearly 4 to 1. - Parents Television Council

  2. And John, I'll bet the scenes that depicted or implied married sex did so with a slanting reference to how awful or infrequent it is! I really hate the whole TV sitcom genre, I think it ravages the emotional life of human beings. These comedies aren't funny, they're flippant. Flippancy makes a subtle argument for sin. When you laugh, IF you laugh, you assent to sinful behavior in your heart. Then when you're confronted with it in life, it's easier to choose it.

  3. The many examples of You Fail Statistics Forever in Hollywood might have a Heinlein's Razor explanation ("do not attribute to malice what is adequately explained by stupidity"). Remember, the people who make TV are provincials from New York City (and yes, New Yorkers are provincial—if you think your hometown is the world, you are a cornpone, I don't care what town it is), or LA. Or pathetic people from other places who have an inferiority complex regarding New York and LA—that seems to be a common ailment in Minneapolis, for some reason.
