Hello /tv/ I am new to this board and I have a question: Why are there so many gays in the media?
In the united states of america, only 3.8% of the population is gay. Source: http://www.gallup.com/poll/183383/americans-greatly-overestimate-percent-gay-lesbian.aspx
Yet, in movies, television shows, commercials, etc, there is a high prevalence of homosexuals.
Why is this? Why is such a small minority so largely represented in the media?
Probably not. The only people who really seem to care are homosexuals and possibly those against homosexuality. It's really nothing more than having a token black. Next will be the transexuals.
It's all fun and games to make it everyone's business what's happening in your bedroom until being a "protected class" means having to publicly register your sexual orientation on official paperwork.
Only then will the butthurts begin over "B-but muh PRIVACY! It's no one's business!"
Damon was right. Things like these have to remain a mystery.
Homo here. It's pandering to our untapped demographic in hopes we will tune in and buy ad items. It has shit all to do with acceptance.
Ellen was about acceptance. Then we became cool and trendy. Now everyone's trying to cash in.
