Ok, I understand but isn't it a bit sad to get offended by it?
I mean, why?
Dislike it? cool, turn it off and watch something else but to be offended by it is just silly.
Stop getting offended. lol
Now wait a second ... I thought PC was driven by not wanting to offend anyone. So many things we cannot do or say now because someone else might find it offensive.
But if I find it offensive to continue to see such gross stereotypes and poorly written and portrayed characters on TV, I am now told to shut up and change the channel? Why didn't that work when certain victim groups complain about how things offend them and I tell them to simply shut up and change the channel? Nope ... instead, The Dukes of Hazzard can no longer be on TV, Paula Deen was taken off the air, who knows whether or not we'll ever see any more of The Apprentice ...
Do you see where I'm going?
It seems some can say they are offended and be justified and catered to, but others cannot.

"The Gay Agenda" means "They're trying to make us all gay"

Thats ok, I was looking at films to watch, now Im not misogynistic. I support womens rights but seeing them being the main character in a film is all part of the "feminist agenda". So I skipped that film and watched Expendables 2 then smacked my woman for not making me the correct sandwich.
No wait, I got that wrong.
Thats ok, I was looking at films to watch, now Im not racist. I support equal rights on all fronts, but seeing a black person being the main character in a film part is corrupting our youth and creating thugs and POOR PEOPLE. So I skipped that film and watched .... errr...... white..girls? Then smacked my "room mate" who lives in the shed because he didnt do a full days work on the plantation.
No wait... thats wrong aswell.
I was watching films the other day, it had strong women, black people and gay people. I honestly cant remember what the film was or was about, that might be because of the "no sleep for 60 hours" thing and the work I put in to trying to relax didnt work... but meh.
I love it when people say "Im not homophobic" or "I support gay rights / marriage" then add a BUT. So your reason for not watching this couple pick a house on a generically bad TV show, its the gay agenda at work?
You do know that when gay people get married they tend to live together, SHOCK HORROR sometimes they BUY a house.
Now, my personal view on partners expressing "too much" lovin in public is - Gay, Straight, Asexual... please dont dry hump each other in public. Its just rude... mainly because you have the time to do it and I have to go buy nappies.
I would love for people in this world to get over themselves and their secret hate for other groups of people who do things differently.
So to all those people who say:
Im not homophobic but,
Im not sexist but,
Im not racist but.
Yes you are.

Not sure, but I did hear that someone on youtube seen a truck full of rainbow toilet paper being delivered to some specific camp, but that is just hear say.
Anyway seriously though, if I don't like something, I just don't watch it. I mean the prison show from back in the day called OZ had a lot of gay characters in it, and I loved that show. Tobias Beecher, a gay dude, was one of my favorite characters. ~$heopleNation
