Maybe GLAAD, Hollywood’s gay lobby, can find some satisfaction in the fact that through all their grandstanding, more gay representation has found its way into the film industry. Turns out, 2018 was one of the best years in the history of gya representation in movies, but as we all have come to expect, GLAAD’s never one to shut up. Yes, there was ample gay visibility, but what about transgender visibility?
During the Third Hour Today show on Tuesday, the network broadcast seized on left-wing outrage over Alabama Public Television deciding not to air an episode of the PBS children’s cartoon Arthur that included a gay wedding. Hosts accused the state of “homophobia and intolerance” for objecting to the controversial program.
CBS’s social justice mini-series The Red Line finally came to an end on May 19. It’s just another series that has promoted obvious progressive talking points like cops shooting black people and the “peaceful” Black Lives Matter movement. The final two episodes likewise end not with a bang but with a whimper as they preach intolerance in the name of gay acceptance.
On Sunday, Chick-fil-A was the victim of another left-stream media smear over its Christian convictions. Outsports, a propaganda blog for all things LGBTQ, demeaned Chick-fil-A as "the nation’s favorite purveyors of fast food chicken and faith-based discrimination" for donating money to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
Lesbian and ESPN The Magazine Body issue model Megan Rapinoe is taking the SJW baton from Colin Kaepernick and giving President Donald Trump an ongoing middle finger. A pro soccer star and member of the U.S. National Team, Rapinoe tells Yahoo Sports's Henry Bushnell her play will serve as an “F you” to the Trump administration.
Some say that if a hero lives long enough, they’ll eventually see themselves become the villain. Well, that certainly can be said for PBS children's classic Arthur. The show, now in its 22nd season, has taken beloved character, Mr. Ratburn, and made him blindingly queer. In the season premiere, the 3rd grade teacher and male role model for Arthur and his gang said “I do” to a male anthropomorphic muskrat (or something) in a wedding ceremony attended by his students. As one character exclaimed, “It’s a brand new world.”
Unofficially, Hollywood seems to have chosen its candidate. And while that may be an an ambitious claim at this stage in the 2020 race, it only reflects the insane amount of support Hollywood bigwigs are showing to Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana. ABC news ran a story on how just starstruck celebs and heavyweight producers are with Buttigieg, claiming he’s everything they’ve ever dreamed of — the “unicorn candidate.”
Both DC and Marvel are hellbent on a new diversity initiative, looking to capture the hearts of a “global” audience. Maybe the comic book giants figure they’ve wrung as much money as they can from the straight, mostly white heros of DC’s Arrow and Marvel’s Avengers. A lesbian “Batwoman” is on the way from DC, and Marvel has confirmed that soon we will get our first gay crimefighter.
Following the GLAAD Media L.A. awards show in March, the gay entertainment lobby hosted another evening in New York City to ensure that several other of the culture’s most putrid influencers wouldn’t go without their LGBTQ advocacy trophies.
The beauty of establishing three million plus politically correct rules to defend your weird fringe diversity interests is that you’ll never have a shortage of things to be angry about. Hollywood Reporter published an insipid collection of anecdotes from anonymous minority individuals complaining about fellow Hollywood staffers’ idiosyncrasies, and spun it as “10 pieces of advice to avoid missteps and marginalization on set and in meetings.”
The 2019 Billboard Music Awards aired on May 1. The host for the NBC broadcast, Kelly Clarkson, presided over a politics-free award ceremony, with only one exception. How refreshing since most of the award shows are riddled with political lecturing by our Hollywood betters.
An outbreak in the culture wars is erupting in Tennessee, uniting left-stream media, LGBT pressure groups and the NFL's Tennessee Titans, in addition to other corporate interests, against a conservative legislature trying to pass legislation would ensure that occupants of public restrooms use the one that correspondents with their physical gender. Legislation would also safeguard faith-based adoption agencies from discrimination charges for refusing to allow children to be adopted by same-sex couples. Naturally, biased media reports characterized the bills as "anti-LGBT."
