Promotion of gay gender on tv

Promotion of gay gender on tv
One Catholic priest who is a newspaper columnist said that we are wondering why gay people are multiplying fast. We should blame ourselves because we patronize the gay shows on tv. You cannot watch tv in a day without seeing a gay or lesbian in a live show, game show or in soap. That is because the entertainment industry is full of gays, directors or actors, or people who have great influence. I agree with the priest that what we patronize is what we get. Now this question, are we heading the direction of Sodom? I hope not.


I am against discrimination against a person based on his gender ot sexual orientation. You cannot discriminate someone just because he/he is a lesbian. However, I am also against overtly gloringfying LGBT. Yes, they must be given equal rights, they must be protected by law, but overtly promoting them on media is something I dislike.

Well as far as the transgenders are considered they happen to be different and should be respected. On the other hand, I am not against Lesbian or gays but yes they are being promoted.Whether you take a look into top movies, show or even in sports. Every where a gay/lesbian star, player or even a coach is promoted like someone who is out of this world.Actually, i believe it's just one of pieces in the puzzle of Genesis.

We cannot judge the number of people becoming gay of lesbian due to tv shows or the people whom you are with. That is really unfair to them. They do not wish to be gay or lesbian either but the body hormones practically acted that way naturally. Nobody likes to be looked down or cast away like a disease. Nowadays even the gays and lesbian are widely recognized as legal couples and they are allowed to adopt children too. Look at the celebrities , how well the children are brought up . They are humans after all.

Seriously? Whether gender issues are covered or promoted by the media or not, they still exist and must be accepted in our society. Whether or no this issue is covered in the media, it is a part of our every day lives, and to try to pretend like it is not there is ridiculous. You have your opinion, and I think it is a bit offensive, personally, but that's all it is, an opinion. Everyone has the right to live his or her life as he or she pleases as long as he or she is not hurting someone or putting someone in danger. What about pornography? Why don't you attack that? That seems to me to be more about Sodom than anything else.

I always believed in Equality and Diversity. I can never imagine Gays and Lesbians hiding from their caves just to pleased the hypocrisy of some sectors in our society. It's just very unfortunate that there are some people still living in Stone Age Era. A piece of thought from a person who suffered from discrimination many years ago, let us not glorify hypocrisy. Whether we like it or not, homosexuality will always be a part of this society. Mind your own salvation and I will mind my own.

While I am not against sexual freedom or freedom of any sort I have to say that some shows and some channels take it to the extreme. They want to make it seem like the world is made exclusively of gay people which are not the case. It seems the tables have turned. Back them gays were discriminated, but nowadays it seems being heterosexual is discriminated. I don't see the equality in that.

Lol anything that is over the top is just annoying! And this is from a member of the LGBTQ community. Respect begets respect so why we don't just let everybody live their life base on their own liking? And please just stop shoving your faith, religious belief, or sexuality in other people's throat! Why don't we just stop overdoing things and have mutual peace, people?

I just don't understand why so many people don't respect the people's gender orientation decision. Everyone should just mind they're own business and stop having the mentality that if a man likes a woman, another man should like a woman as well.

I tend to agree with the last comment. Like everything else that was once considered socially taboo, homosexuality has been overly focused on in television in its attempt to normalize it. This has had the unfortunate effect of television sometimes making more of a mockery of the situation it is attempting to help than it does it any good but I do not think for one second that the popularity of homosexual story lines, characters and or actors on television, has had any effect on people's sexuality. As the former states, there is no need for anyone to pressure others to take their side, watch what you enjoy and leave the rest and maybe the ratio will balance itself to the viewers.

This is pure hate speech. Displaying something that factually exists is not a promotion and your insistence on that terminology outs you as someone who still holds the clownishly erroneous view point that homosexuality is somehow a societal construct. It is not. It is a natural orientation which is found in the animal kingdom, including homo-sapiens at a rate of about 13%. You are free to like or dislike gay people, of course. No one can take your bigotry from you. But you are not entitled to your own "alternative facts". Your priest is a bigot, and so are you.
Posted by JaiGuru on 08-24-2017
I don't think you, or that priest for that matter, have a complete understanding on this topic. I understand you and your priest may be uncomfortable that there are people who have sexualities that are different than yours, but it seems like you're both all too quick to throw the blame somewhere in an attempt to find a rationale that's different than what you're afraid is the truth: that homosexuality is a natural occurrence. Which, to burst your bubble, is the truth.

Gays are not "multiplying" fast because of prevalence in the media or pop culture. You're noticing more of them because our societies are finally moving (very slowly) toward accepting them as who they are. In the past they've had to work hard to hide their sexuality out of fear of discrimination from people like you and your priest (which many still have to do to today, unfortunately).

So if "heading in the direction of Sodom" means we'll have a world where homosexuals are fully recognized by the world as equal individuals and not discriminated against because of their sexuality, then I say full steam ahead.

I don't know where are we heading to, but I do not agree with gay or lesbian relationships. God left a man and a woman on earth telling them to reproduce, there were not two men or two women....Gay or lesbian people are sick, they need treatment, they need our help, but what can we do, when they don't accept they are sick? Television is doing what knows best, to have a good rating and produce money, and the good rating comes from gay, lesbian, or cheating shows. I don't blame them, I blame the people who watch this kind of shows.

You are totally free to believe and think what you want, but what you've expressed in your comment makes me think that you may be the sick one, not the gay community. It's important for you to keep in mind that just as you are free to believe what you want (God, Adam, Eve, and all that mumbo jumbo), there are more beliefs than just yours, and each member of those beliefs are equally entitled to their freedom as you. That being said, I don't think "My God says it's bad" is never, ever a rational argument against homosexuality.

I think people like you are the ones who need help. Homosexuals don't need to "accept they are sick" because they AREN'T sick. You just WANT them to be "sick" because their lifestyle makes you uncomfortable and you want to justify your rationale in whatever way you can.

What same-sex couples do with each other or in the comfort of their own homes has absolutely no effect on you, does it? So why is it such a problem?
Posted by TheArticulate on 08-25-2017
If you are so religious and you think they are just suffering sickness, Do you know any treatment? Can you also suggest a treatment for those who are proud to commit adultery? For the killers? And the solution for those who do not follow the ten commandments? You should focus on the ten commandments first before being problematic about LGBT community.

I'm happy that we have free speech because then I know who I can avoid. I strongly disagree with your views and a few of the people in the comments. They are extremely backwards and medieval. I can't believe that we are in 2017, to be honest, and we still have such medieval thoughts. Why does someone else's life bother you? They are not forcing you to become gay. Just because a particular actor or presenter is gay, how does that affect you in any way?

And regarding the post by wallet, that is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. They are not gay at all, no offence but I believe you might be sick with such thoughts. They are people like me and you. There is nothing wrong with being gay or a lesbian.

I agree with Vastor122. Anything that is over-represented can begin to feel oppressive. That can be this issue or many others as well, including religion as noted.

I think some people need to learn the difference between equality and special treatment. Even some gay people will tell you that gays are over-represented right now, considering that they are a small percentage of the population. Some will say it's not okay, but others say it's justified because they were "oppressed" for so long (if that word even has meaning any more, the way it's been abused).

I do not fully support the LGBT community but I have nothing against gay or lesbian people being featured in TV shows but when they start glorifying the genders, I somehow feel uneasy. I do realize that almost in every TV series here in our country features at least one gay person, and they also do that for TV talk shows at times.
Posted by giovanniiiii on 08-24-2017
Well, I'm not a bigot neither do i support discrimination, but i find it disgusting and shameful that a fellow guy like me is getting aroused by a bag of bone in the ass of another man, and if you are gay, with all due respect you need medical evaluations and spiritual deliverance. because this things are not normal at all, it's against the cosmic rules and the configuration of nature. And anybody watching gay shows needs to get his head checked asap. shameful. To every man his own life, live and let live. is that simple?.
Posted by Authord on 08-24-2017
What's like being able to hold simultaneously contradicting opinions that are nearly seamlessly intertwined together? I can't imagine having a thought process like you.
Posted by TheArticulate on 08-25-2017
I have to agree with TheArticulate, must be absolutely horrible to have a thought process like that. "I'm not a bigot neither do i support discrimination". And then you proceed to write a sentence that literally proves how much of a bigot you are and how extremely discriminative you are. You know what I think is shameful, someone like you with such medieval opinions. I'm sure gay people or gay shows will love that you don't watch their shows.
Posted by kingcool52 on 08-25-2017
There is nothing wrong about promoting Gay community. We are all entitled of who and what we would like to become as long as we preserve our dignity as a person. Let's face it Gay people gives joy in every group and uplifts every mood. They are also one of the smartest people. They talk non-stop and they have better ideas that simply shows their creative personality. They are the type of people with full packed skills. I believe, regardless of our gender we must always give ourselves worth for we are all made in God's own image and likeness.

I don't know why other people get so affected by others sexual preference. Even if they are very religious they should not judge a person because of being gay or lesbian. No one is blaming you or questioning you why you chose that religion right? Which we all know there are so many religion in different country, we even say we should not talk about religion and politics cause it's a never ending discussion and no one will win. So why blame others when they chose to be gay? It's their life. Let them live the way they want it as long as they are not hurting other people.

And how can you say that it is being promoted on media that's why the gays are multiplying? Do you think a straight man will decide to be gay just because he sees it in media? You? Will you decide to be gay because it is promoted in the media as you say? I'm sure not, right? Cause you have your own mind, you decide for your own life. So why do you think that way? Why blame other gay because of the decision of others to also come out?

We all know that gays and lesbian is there since the old times, the only difference is they are not afraid to come out now cause more and more people now who knows how to understand and respect each other.

There are so many crimes being committed everyday that we should try to think how to solve first and specially the very religious people should focus on more, killing, rape, stealing, drug addiction that can ruin all of us. Try preaching about it first and solve it. It needs more attention than than the LGBT community. For me as long as you don't hurt anyone, you fight and work fair i will respect you. Whatever sexual preference you choose.
Posted by zheh on 08-26-2017
I am against discrimination too, but the way the media are acting they're just showing the LGBT community down our throat in a desperate attempt to make us like them. They don't understand that it only makes it easier to hate them if they act like this, they're acting like being gay is a trend. This for me is another form of discrimination.
Posted by Tania997 on 08-26-2017
i believe that God create man and woman only but we should not discriminate gays because they are create by God with a purpose in life we should treat them equal but if we have time to talk to them we can share to them the bible about gay and lesbian if they listen about it. we should be careful on this issue. for safer answer we should treat all equal no racism.

I had no problem with LGBT around me. But these days gender studies and overly glorifying the LGBT is going out of hand. The cases where people identity themselves as unicorn gender and others are really idiotic. And considering science and society both are being shamed with this moody gender studies. It's going to be really bad for the next generation. Its like they are being raised among imaginative writers who change genders every single day.
Posted by overcast on 08-28-2017
Promotion of gay gender on TV should be stopped totally. Gay gender is a terrible sin in the sight of God. People should stop it on time, if not if it is allowed to continue to spread on the TV it will encourage this sin to continue and on judgement day, if they did not repent on time, it will finally lead to hell fire.
Posted by babyright on 08-28-2017
What the hell is gay gender?? All those comments are hateful and disgusting and you should be ashamed of yourself. There's no "promotion" of gayness, people come out because they feel free to do it. Who is glorifying gayness? How can you say you have "no problem" with LGBT and then write hateful things? I hope you all know you are bigots and if you hide behind religion, it's even worse, God loves everyone and people who call others sinners should focus on themselves.
Posted by felabruno on 09-02-2017
I think everyone should be left to live their lives the way they want it and that extends the type of sexual relationship they want to have. I am not gay, but I have friends that are gay and those guys are not the worst people on earth considering the fact that we have our politicians that loot the treasury, the armed robbers that rob homes at and others. However, I think the promotion of gay on TV should not do at that high voice to attract the public. Let the promotion of gay marriage do not be our focus for we have many issues in this world we should move toward solving as nations of the world.
Posted by Barida on 09-05-2017
Personally, I don't have any problem with anyone's sexual inclinations. It a free world and everyone is free to choose any kind of life he/she is comfortable leading. In as much as religion would have its own different opinion and views, it still doesn't change anything as one choice and happiness supercedes any other thing.

The only place I won't be supporting any life style one choose is trying to force it on another person who isn't quite interested in taking up such life. I have heard stories where someone is forced into being gay or lesibian. This is totally wrong and must be punishable by the law.

I'm not against gay or lesbian in fact I have a dozen gay friends. I agree that the entertainment industry is now full of gays, lesbians and actors portraying to be gays. There's not a day that you can't see a gay on TV shows and they bring laughter in our lives.

I would have to say based on most of his/her threads, the OP is quite consistent in his/her line of reasoning and that as usual, in this thread another 'expert', a priest, is 'called in' to validate whatever he/she wants to push. I have no inkling how there could be more gay people just because there are more shows featuring gay people. Being gay is not something you'll catch or get infected with. The OP makes it appear like having gays around is a curse, an abomination. How can you judge people based on their gender preference? I'm a Christian but I'm not perfect and can't cast the first stone. Likewise, being openly gay on TV does not necessarily translate to engaging in promiscuous relationships behind the scenes. You may be shocked but there are gays that become born again Christians and refrain from homosexual sex because of their faith. Likewise, gays tend to be faithful to their partners than heterosexual men who think nothing about engaging in sex with multiple partners.

I don't believe because of gay show on TV encourage this.People will always want to do what they like even if nothing trigger it.I don't want to discriminate but I'm.lending my voice to advocate freedom for all.

Everyone have different sexual preference, it is good that it is being promoted on tv so kids will be able to understand that fact about life. These people didn't choose their sexual preference to be so, that's what all this anti gays should always remember, promotion on tv shouldn't be a big deal, it is like you showing the cultures of others further making the public to be aware.

It has always been around but was just suppressed by the church before and now society is just being more honest and upfront with it. People should just be able to mind their own business, and no one has a right to tell others how to live if it's not harming anyone. The reason it's so prevalent now in media is because it is making up for lost time since gays have been forced to live in the shadows for so long.
