I am amazed at people who watch TV and constantly bitch about all the homosexuality they see on it. WTF do they expect from a bunch of entertainers?
I'm more amazed at the notion that there is some huge influx of gayness on American TV. That's completely absurd...and it's simple math.
Think of ALL the TV shows on. All the dramas, comedies, reality shows, news programs, live sports, movies, etc...then think about the 24 hour cycle and the hundreds of channels on. How many characters, anchors, players, citizens, etc are on TV each week? What percentage of that total are openly gay?
In the end, we're talking about a few shows that have a cast member or a handful that are openly gay, or have a gay storyline...or Thor forbid a commercial that shows an open homosexual. The vast majority of everything else is heterosexual in nature...or asexual, which therefore could not be described as gay. And this tiny percentage of gayness is what seems to be getting so many people riled up suggesting there is some gay push.
Of all the shows I currently watch:
- Game of Thrones
- Mad Men
- The Walking Dead
- The Americans
- It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
- Hell on Wheels
- Breaking Bad
I can only think of one openly gay character, and he's a cartoon...literally. Image: http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/_img/chars/char_41564.jpg
