Do I have to be Politically Correct?

Updated on May 25, 2012

Maybe, I just don't want to be it.

Source


Today I watched my last episode of Glee. No, Glee has not been cancelled. I, however, have cancelled it from my list of shows to watch. The reason I have done so is because the show has become far too offensive to my sense of morals and personal value system. You understand clearly what I am saying if you have watched the show this season, and the end of last season. The show takes homosexuality and slams it to its audience, then tells the audience, you’re wrong if you are not okay with it. Not only do you have to condone gay lifestyle but if you don’t accept it as simply an alternate way of living, you are homophobic, ignorant, and definitely not politically correct.


So what if I am not politically correct. I do not agree with same sex marriage. I do not agree with homosexual lifestyles. I cringe and get physically nauseated when I see two men or two women kissing on the mouth, with lust in their eyes for each other. Gross.


There, I said it. The sky didn’t fall. The police didn’t come in and take me to jail. I didn’t grow horns and a tail. Yep, I’m still me.


Let me say something before all you who are really pissed off with me right now. Just because personally feel that same sex relationships are wrong, ( I mean, seriously, the day I can have sex with a woman and conceive a child, which is the reason for sex; procreation, then perhaps I will not see it as an act against nature. ) does not mean that I would be mean to someone who “chooses” this way of life or who has only had attraction to a person of the same sex. I know people have had life experiences as children that effect them to feel this way, as well as DNA which prone one to feel different to the way physically they were made. I also understand there are people born with both sex organs that have to choose which they will be physically.


All of us should love all in the human race no matter their creed, smoking or no smoking preference, or sexual orientation. No one should be persecuted, harassed and not allowed the same quality of life as their neighbor. Yet, in the same thought, I should not be force fed that I have to accept as right anyone’s lifestyle, religion, marital status, as right. I don’t agree with men in communes that marry physical sisters and children. I don’t agree that sex outside of marriage is right either, so I have stopped watching shows like New Girl and Smash, which choose to entertain with stories of multiple sex partners, adultery, and homosexuality. And, yes, I have been entertained by those shows until the sexual life of these characters became the main focus of the plots.


Everyone must choose for themselves what path to follow. I have chosen mine. I am finding that I am watching less and less television because it has changed. Most shows highlight either sex as their plot, gory violence, and or demonic or mysticism. I’ve been scared many times by commercials for these types of shows or movie previews. It’s quite sad that I am being forced to entertain myself with entertainment from decades where there was an actual rating system that didn’t fluctuate with the decline of the moral state of mankind. I have chosen to do so. I don’t want to lose my innocence and joy and become jaded. If we don’t watch out, soon there will be a reality show for pedophiles showing them hunting for our children and what they do with them after they get them, or rape network. Where will you draw the line between right and wrong? Will you continue to allow the media to dictate to your family what is right and wrong and morally acceptable?


What do you have to say?

Do you feel you should change how you view something because society says you should accept it?

      Dear Michelle, i love your argumentation, even if i am not having the same opinion, i feel like i need to understand people who is different, but you are so lovely and without being aggressive in a matter were most of us get pretty angry. I should learn from you how to choose nice arguments.

      Thank you izettl for your thoughts. Once upon a time Media was used to inform unbiased, but now it's used to control the thoughts of the masses.

      voted up and useful. my sentiments exactly. Just this week my daughter who is 5 was told she was not invited to a birthday party by our neighbor boy. The boy said only Romanians are going- and he's Romanian. Now if an American said you can;t come to a birthday party to someone other than an American then it's not politically correct. I have written a hub on this and I can't stand the term politically correct. It's a way to shut up Americans because non-Americans can be non politically correct all they want and its accepted.

      I hear gays repeatedly state their sexuality shouldn't be an issue or of anybody's concern then why has our society made it their concern and plastered it all over the media. UNfortunately I see today's youth being the most effected generation thus far in history that is highly influenced from Hollywood.

      Thank you, handymanbill. You are correct about Hollywood. They are the puppeteers and society moves to its pull.

      I agree with everything that you have said. The trouble is this is how Hollywood change's people view on making things acceptable to all. if you see it on television then it must be fine. So people start excepting it. Our children see it and it is acceptable to them. I have not have T.v. Service at my house in a year.

      I'm pretty sick of the politically correct party line myself. Everyone has to think the same way or else they're evil. Diversity is good, except when it comes to diversity of opinion.

      I haven't watched TV for years. It's just too stupid and depressing. I don't think I've missed anything.

      I couldn't agree more with this entire post. Very well-written with excellent points. Congratulations for eloquently expressing your beliefs and being courageous enough to take a currently unpopular stance.

      Carlon Michelle, you speak for a lot of us. Your line, "I cringe and get physically nauseated when I see two men or two women kissing on the mouth, with lust in their eyes for each other. Gross." Priceless! I've never seen an episode of Glee and also have reduced my TV viewing to a minimum.
