CBS will introduce more gay characters on its scripted programs in response to recently receiving a failing grade from GLAAD, CBS President Nina Tassler said Wednesday.
It really is a conspiracy! :eek:
The reader comments after the article are probably more interesting than the article itself. Most people think it's ridiculous to pander to special interest groups and be "forced" to awkwardly add a certain kind of character just to make them happy.
It is a conspiracy, and it extends to off-network shows also. I looked up the article though and thankfully the shows I watch will not feature gay characters as far as I can see.
My advice is if there is a gay character featured predominately in one of your favorite shows, write the network responsible for this. We can no longer keep our voices silent. It is one thing to have a gay character (who is not in a "relationship" and another that falsely shows them in a sexual relationship.
We have to begin letting these folks know, by not watching these shows and boycotting the advertisers products, that we will not let them get away with it.
I began in my music file by deleting everything that Elton John sings because he said that Jesus is gay.
