Every channel we turn to, the media is reporting something concerning homosexuality. Whether homosexual weddings, hate crimes, gay pride parades, does this or that football player agree with it? Is this politician for it? Does this business support it? They cannot stop talking about it!
And now the media is practically swooning over Michael Sam!
I want to hear everyone's opinion as to why this is!
About 5% of the population is gay, bisexual or transgender. It is an area where a lot is happening in law and in society. Why would the news media not be covering that? I am not gay but I find it totally newsworthy and in fact very interesting.
My question is why so much of the news is about boring things like sports? Maybe it is because the media broadcasts to the whole populations and lots of other people are interested in sports?
People of the LBGT community are human beings thus they are entitled to be treated with the utmost in human dignity. They also deserve the fullest of human rights. The marginalization of LBGT people,to many thinking, enlightened, and evolved people, is viewed as quite aberrant. LBGT =OKAY!
No, it is not glorified at all. It is showing the public that LBGT people are people just like everyone else. It is showing LBGT people as just normal, everyday people who have feelings, hopes, and dreams. This is FAR better than being bombarded with such "shows" as the Duggars, Bates, and other megafamilies circuses. LBGT people AREN'T overpopulating the world and making worthwhile contributions to society.
Many LBGT people made significant contributions to society in politics, the arts and humanities, medicine, business, religion, and in entertainment. Why does anyone care about the so-called proliferation of LBGT people by the media. It is good that Americans be exposed to LBGT people, they are people like everyone else. I would rather view LBGT people that the sickening ad nauseum megafamilies like the Duggars and Bates. Now, THAT'S sickening like we need to watch incessant breeders who are polluting and overpopulating the world!
Just the first name that came to mind GM, it was there almost before I'd finished reading the sentence and was more to show the limited thinking of the OP rather than to be even a slightly definitive list.
Why is it that Christians believe that Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Native Americans, etc. are all wrong in their beliefs and that they'll all go somewhere horrible when they die? Why can't we just accept that other...
Ok I usually avoid religious forums like a plague but after my last thread about a certain lesbian woman, it just gave me an idea for another thread I mean its not just in the hub forums.. its everywhere. But looking at...
I am sick of born again Christians on this site saying homosexuality is evil and wrong. I have a couple of good mates who are gay (not with each other) and they are far from evil. I am sick of people saying it is a...
