Over 10% of tv characters are LGBT. It is known that GLAAD and other gay organizations lobby studios for more of them. Do you want to see more, fewer or the same % we have now?
What's in it for Madison Avenue (advertising) to be demoting whites? Prime time commercials seem to only include whites as a last-person token gesture. You would think whites were a minority based on their representation - frequency of appearance - in the big-bucks commercials.
This is a serious question; are these companies somehow getting a kickback for promoting minorities, in their aggregate total numbers, as the apparent majority population? They certainly don't spend more money on products than whites.
I went ofr years without watching any television. IN recent years though I have suffered some physcial troubles which has taken me off my feet far more than I care for. As a result I spend more time now watching things on the comuter, Hulu mainly. In the past people had hissy fits about this group or that group not having enough representation in entertainment. So they started putting more black characters, introducing a variety of other ethnic characters. That was fine until they also chose to rewrite history placing blacks or muslims in miliraty units in WWII, or back in the old west when you knew damned well they were not there. I have also noted that there are a lot of black characters in shows about old European stories where there certainly were not blacks in the courts, and royal families. Now we have so many various members of the "alternative" life style choices they want us to think everyother person is of some form of sexual degenerate. In most cases the characters sexual orientation does not even have a bearing on the plot, it really has nothing to do with the story line at all. They just throw the gay, bi, lesbian character in to force everyone to accept that there is nothing wrong with these chosen life style. Heck I am even seeing material that is touching on normalizing child rape. It is all a part of a specific social/political agenda and has nothing to do with fairness, reality, or what people actually want to see. It is pure propaganda. The less of it there is the better off we will be as a society
I'm a firm believer in representation by population... what percentage of the population is actually LGBTQ? 3%?5%? 8%? It would seem only right then to only have that same percentage reflected in media... just because you're loud doesnt mean you get to be plastered on every media tool available... it could be used racially as well... but I think it has been for the most part...
