Well you didn't think to hard then cause the first show on your list Game of Thorns had a couple of gay characters, one of which is on the show.

Wow, are you misinformed. To the best of my knowledge, gays were never slaves or segregated. Picked on, or ridiculed, maybe, but not persecuted or "prosecuted" near as much.

Right...I forgot. Renly Berathean (now dead) and his knight.

Ok...so the new count is, um...probably several thousand to three.

Help, help...I'm being bombarded!

With a list like that, Zach, I'd recommend at least Justified (US Marshall in Kentucky office dealing with criminal activity in and around his hometown of Harlan,) and you'd definitely enjoy the Americans (cold war ear dram about Soviet spies living as Americans in 1982 Washington DC).

Both are on FX.

Thanks. Will look for them. I check Tivo every night and Lucy only has shows recorded about women murdering their husbands. It is disturbing.

What if it was an interracial couple? Should the networks not show that, because it will offend "some" in the country?



I see WAY more gay couples on TV than interracial couples (especially black/white couples which are almost never seen).

re: I would like gay marriage to be legalized.... but....


To put it simply, society as a whole defines what is considered normal versus abnormal. I have my PhD from an accredited psychology program, BTW. I used to really like Count Choc!

To the OP: The term "marriage" has become equated with the concept of "civil unions." A healthy compromise in my opinion would be marriage in a church and civil unions by the JOP. If a church chooses to marry gay couple then that's their choice. The important part to me is to let everyone have the benefit of "legally coupling" with their significant other. Keep the Feds out of it.

As far as TV is concerned...TURN IT OFF.

I don't get how or why anyone would oppose it TBH.

That said, I don't really give a shite what happens one way or the other.

I'm pretty sure being openly gay is still a capital offense in a lot of countries. Also gays have been brutally murdered for their sexuality. THey have never been enslaved, but being openly gay has never been easier than now.

Am I the only one who is tired of people clarifying their positions before they say something controversial? Why do we need to go it?

I've noticed myself doing it and I'm making an effort to quit. If someone jumps to the conclusion that you are a racist or bigot based off a single statement, they are more than likely the one with issues.

THIS HAS BEEN A PSA ON THE STUPIDITY OF CLARIFYING YOUR POSITION BEFORE YOU SAY SOMETHING CONTROVERSIAL.

Except, the OP missed the boat on clarifying his position too.

This is not, and has never been the goal.

The goal is to "normalize" homosexuality...not to protect anyone's rights.

I'm pretty sure he was only talking about the "persecution" of homosexuals in the USA not in other countries.

After all, according to the Loony Left, the USA shouldn't be the policeman of the world and interfere with the internal politics of other countries.
